Slow Cooker Fruit, Nuts, and Spice Oatmeal
This is such a favorite in our house that I make extra so leftovers can be enjoyed days later by warming in the microwave. Be sure to use steel cut oats and not rolled oats for this recipe to work as-is, as well as using only the lowest "warm" setting on the crock pot. I always make with whole almonds and pecans for a more 'exciting' result, and dried cherries work well instead of cranberries but I've found raisins as a substitute are not tart enough. I also always use ~1.5c whole milk and replace the pumpkin pie spice with a mixture of 1/4 t cloves, 1/8 t nutmeg, and 1/4 t cardamom, plus 4T loose brown sugar and 3/4 t salt. For simplicity, I also use 2 whole apples rather than measuring.

Sue's Hot Fudge Sauce
My kids are always disappointed when we run out of this quick and easy topping. For a more fudgy flavor I double the cocoa to 2/3c, and reduce the sugar to 2 1/2c. Also, to minimize crystallization that some people complain about, I add 1T corn syrup. For simplicity, I continuously whisk the mixture while boiling instead of using a blender. With the corn syrup added, this keeps fine for quite some time in the refrigerator without growing sugar crystals.

Southern Comfort Ice Cream Pie
A straightforward recipe that's easy to adjust to your liking. The birthday request was for cookies & cream, so I made the crust from chocolate graham crackers, skipped the peanut butter, and used walnuts instead of cashews. I used "Sue's Hot Fudge Sauce" with double the cocoa and topped it with a homemade chocolate shell (2/3c choc chips, 2T coconut oil, melted and mixed), studded with vanilla/chocolate Oreos. Be sure to use a deep dish pie plate! What's not to like?
