Slow Cooker Red Curry Beef Pot Roast
Absolutely fabulous. TBH, some people shun Americanized "hybrid" dishes like this in favor of authentic ethnic entrees with established history and tradition behind them. I admit to having been one of those snobs, probably from having gone to one too many really bad Americanized Chinese restaurants (even one is too many). But this dish had me pleasantly surprised and has gone some way in reforming my antiquated mindset. I'd always wondered how the fantastic sweet and spicy flavor from the Thai curry coconut milk soup staples could translate to other dishes. Here is a well executed example by Chef John on how that happens, taking a dish as American as pot roast in a slow cooker and spicing it up with the all essential red curry and coconut milk ingredients signature to Thai. My only changes were to use the more nutritious protein based chickpeas (dry stock) that I added at the start of the slow cook instead of carbs like potatoes. As personal preference and higher tolerance I also tripled the amount of curry and used gluten free quinoa flour instead of cornstarch. I'm very pleased with how delicious it turned out. I'll be returning to this recipe again in the future. Thanks John, I'm very happy about being able to have this in my repertoire.

No Bake Peanut Butter Pie
Time and aggravation saving tips; if you want to make only ONE pie to see if you like this first before making enough for two you can improve upon it by using a Nutter Butter crust (24 crushed Nutter Butter cookies & 5 Tbsp. of butter mixed together & pressed into bottom & sides of a pie plate) as rec'd by RX3, and instead use 1/2 cup sugar and 8 oz cool whip. Omit milk and add 1 Tbsp. vanilla. The milk causes pie to melt if left unfrozen. Overall I found this to be too sweet for my tastes, which is why I modified revision to 1/2 rather than 3/4 cup sugar but I wish I could like it more though those that tried it with me loved it so YMMV.

Strawberry Freeze
Don't get me wrong, this tastes great but that's because it has a ridiculous amount of sugar in it.
