Butter Beef
A very quick and easy way to make beef tips. If yours turned out burned it's because you didn't stir it. I stirred mine about every hour and it came out evenly done with no burned or hard areas on the beef. Just because it's in a crock pot doesn't mean you don't have to keep an eye on it and stir as needed. Also, it doesn't need hot sauce unless you want to camouflage the taste of the beef. If you like a spicy beef dish, this isn't the one for you. I followed the recipe exactly with the exception of adding about 1/2 stick more butter. I used unsalted butter since the dry onion soup mix is generally a little salty. My beef was fork tender and had a wonderful taste. I served it over butter noodles and my family loved it. This recipe is definitely a keeper.

Fried Chicken
This is how some of us southerners fry chicken. I've seen my grandmothers and my mom prepare it this way many times and it is always good. I cannot imagine chili powder being added or boiling your chicken before frying. If you fry this on your stove top keep the heat at a medium setting or the outside of the chicken will burn before it is done on the inside. I generally use an electric skillet with the lid on and then remove the lid about 5 mins. before taking it out. It makes the chicken crispier but helps it to stay juicy. I do add some salt, pepper, and paprika to my flour. To really make this taste great fry it in some Crisco or lard in a cast iron skillet. I like to keep things light however and use the vegetable oil. I also fry my chicken tenders this way and then dip them in honey mustard sauce.

Slow Cooker Macaroni and Cheese I
Excellent, easy recipe. I did not cook my macaroni before placing it in my slow cooker and it did great even though I had my doubts. I dislike it when people change a recipe completely and then rate it. I made this recipe exactly as written and I'm very happy with the results.
