Slow Cooker Beef Round Stew
I made this for my husband and myself a couple of weeks ago. I took a photo and uploaded it but forgot to post a review. I used a frozen bag of mixed vegetables, added some minced fresh garlic, and used the optional cream of mushroom soup. I thought it was good but just felt like it was lacking something. My husband didn't like it at all. He said it was very bland. I think it was because of the brown gravy mix. Next time I'll try it with beefy onion soup mix and water instead of the beef broth and gravy mix. I'll also thaw the frozen vegetables and add them at the end so they don't get mushy and washed out looking.

Buffalo Chicken Dip
If I could give this dip more stars I would. I have been asked to make this so many times. I am not a fan of canned chicken so I poach a couple chicken breasts and shred them and I use Frank's Buffalo Wing sauce. I can't imagine using any other pepper sauce as it might be too hot (especially something like Tabasco sauce). I also like to layer the ranch and cream cheese on the bottom and then top it off with the chicken mixture. I top it all off with the shredded cheese if I have some in the fridge otherwise no one really misses it. We had one occasion where we had a little bit left over so the next day I made a grilled buffalo chicken dip cheese sandwich with sourdough. It was so good.

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana
This was so yummy and really easy to make. I had to use half and half because I didn't have any heavy cream but it was still delicious. The only thing I didn't like was that the bacon became kind of soggy and rubbery but I think that was because I didn't cook the bacon until it was extra crispy. I had sliced up 6 potatoes but ended up only using about 4 because there was not enough broth to boil all 6 potatoes.
