Basic Ham and Bean Soup
Wanting to do something with a leftover ham bone, I tried this soup, making a few changes. First, I cooked the onion, garlic & celery (increased to 2 stalks) in some olive oil. Put it in a crock pot & added a packet of Vigo seasoning, which made the color & flavor richer. Yummy!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Noodles
Good basic recipe, but I, like others, prefer more seasoning. That's actually the beauty of it, that you can add what you like. My additions included 2 cloves chopped garlic, a bay leaf, a packet of Vigo seasoning (which also gave it a nice color), sage, and chopped baby carrots. Yummy! It's a rare cold day here in the south, when we can really enjoy it.

Alfredo Sauce
YUM! Quick & easy, tasted great. Made a few changes: used half & half instead of heavy cream & omited the egg yolk and it still thickened up fine. Kids loved it!
