Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
this was simple and tasty! since i was a little confused about the chicken amount (i made it for 4 servings, and the chicken amount was listed as 2 breast halves), i used 2 whole chicken breasts. i don't think it was too much, but i love chicken and need lots of protein. i also added 10 oz of mixed veggies, followed the suggestion of reviewers to use chicken broth instead of water, and added parsley flakes/seasoned salt/poultry seasoning. i also cut the biscuit into strips (8 per biscuit), and the size of the dumpling turned out great. my boyfriend loved it and wanted a second helping. i will be making this again.

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2009
i'm updating my review (which i posted yesterday). i was able to finally get the consistency and texture of the dough correct (2nd try). but i used 2 cups wheat flour and 2 cups white flour as well as replacing white sugar with brown sugar (this combo was suggest by other users). bad mistake. don't mess with the recipe! don't know how the brown sugar affects taste, but adding the wheat flour was a problem. my pretzels made with all white flour and white sugar tasted like they came from the mall. the ones with wheat flour taste like a wheat dinner bun. i love wheat bread and all, but this is supposed to be a pretzel. so stick with the recipe (using only 4 cups of flour, not 5). good luck!

Baked Pork Chops with Apple Raisin Stuffing

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
as other users suggested, i tried it with pork chops with bone (instead of boneless chops), and they were not dry. i was worried that the stuffing would be too dry though, but it was really good (moist under the pork chops and nice and crunchy everywhere else). used stouffer's savory herb stuffing. will definitely be making this one again
