Slow Cooker Chicken Curry with Quinoa
Like others I doubled the curry and quinoa, and used coconut milk instead of milk. I exchanged the apple for dried cranberries because that's what I had. It was a delicious meal to come home to! Very moist, definitely not dry. Was able to take the 2/3 cup quinoa and still be moist. I am always looking for good, real food, crock pot recipes (no canned soups or mixes, etc....) Will make again, maybe trying the apples next time.

Thumbprint Cookies I
Yummy! I have always loved eating these and now I can make them! I would definitely bake these for at least 15 minutes after adding preserves. I chopped up pecans in a pulsing blender. I needed twice as much nuts as recommended, but I like them to be fully covered with lots of nuts. I am excited to finally be able to make these classic cookies on my own! Thanks for a great recipe.
