Swanson(R) Maple Dijon Chicken
This was Incredible! I made a few minor changes just because I used what I had on hand. I used a small onion instead of the shallots and I just put 2 chicken bullion cubes in 1 cup of hot water. We had real maple syrup and I love maple so I used 1/2 cup of maple syrup instead of the 1/3 cup and I omitted the red pepper. The rest I used exactly as written. This was fantastic!! While on my honeymoon in Disney (at a 5 star restaurant) we had pork chops exactly like this, the taste brought me back. You can definitely substitute a nice thick pork chop in place of the chicken if you wish. Also.. for those complaining that the sauce was too thin. I added my chicken back into the sauce once the sauce was boiling so the chicken would get some of the flavor in it and I cooked mine at a higher temp (almost med) stirring occasionally and it just boiled off and became nice and thick and coated the meat perfectly. Thanks.. This was perfect!

Bailey's Irish Cream Brownies
My friend made this for our girls night for St. Patty's day and OMG it was incredible! She said she followed the directions and I plan to do the same because I couldn't stop picking at it. The frosting is amazing and I will be making it soon to add to some chocolate cupcakes.

Slow Cooker Roast Beef
The only thing I did differently was use low sodium soy sauce and about 1 1/2 teas of pepper instead of 2 teas. I'm not a pepper fan so I thought the top of the beef covered in pepper would be strong. But it wasn't.. This tasted Fantastic!! There is another beef recipe on this site that uses the onion soup mix but the beef needs the gravy for taste. This meat was great even without the gravy. I cooked it in a slow cooker on high for 7 hours and it was falling apart. VERY Yummy! Thanks!
