Asian Coleslaw
I thought this was a really good recipe. After I made it the first time, I made it again with some modifications. First, I was kind of shocked that thinly slicing a medium head of cabbage yielded more than 9 cups of cabbage! Second, I agree with one of the other reviewers who said that the recipe as written yields too much dressing. The dressing is really good, but you can cut the amounts in the dressing by half (but don't skimp on the garlic and ginger!), and you'll have plenty! As for the modifications, I substituted lime juice for half the vinegar and sesame oil for half the vegetable oil the second time I made this, and I thought it improved the flavor tremendously. Second, I mixed the dressing with the cabbage and other veggies so that the flavors could blend. In fact, I thought it got better the next day. Mixing the leftover portions with some rotisserie chicken breast makes a great Asian Chicken Salad!

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie
I loved this recipe, and I don't understand the negative reviews. I don't have what I would consider a sweet tooth, but I didn't find it too sweet or sugary in any way. Maybe some of the contributors didn't bake it enough? I did think the portions called for in the recipe were a little large, considering the ingredients. I also thought the recipe made too much, so I cut it in half. I used a 9" x 9" Pyrex dish that I had lightly buttered and pressed half the dough triangles into it. Then I spread the cream cheese mixture over that and placed the other dough triangles (that I had pressed into a square on a cutting board) on top. For the topping, I used brown sugar instead of white. I baked it for 35 minutes, and I think another 3-5 minutes would have made it even better. I drizzled the honey on top immediately after I took it out of the oven and let it cool for 30 minutes. I cut it into 9 pieces, and enjoyed a piece. It's all I can do not to eat another piece right now. This recipe is definitely a winner!

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast
This was incredibly delicious. I used a 3-pound chuck roast (which was fatter than I expected) and browned it on all sides. After I put the roast in the slow cooker, I looked at the bits in the pan and decided to deglaze it with a little (maybe 3-4 Tbsp) balsamic vinegar. Next I poked 4 peeled and smashed garlic cloves in the roast and poured the thickened balsamic on it. Then I put a large sliced white onion on top and sprinkled the onion soup mix over that. Finally, I poured the water over everything and put it in the fridge. Around midnight, I took it out of the fridge and put it in the cooker on low. When I woke up at 7, I added 3/4 pound of baby carrots and another large white onion (sliced). After about another hour, I noticed the roast was falling apart, so I took it out and covered it with foil while everything else cooked another 2 hours. Then I drained off the liquid and let it separate (because my roast was so fatty). I skimmed off as much of the fat and put the roast, carrots, and onions back in the pot, followed by the skimmed liquid and left it on warm until it was ready to serve. The roast was fork tender and full of flavor. I served it with rice, carrots, and onions. I look forward to eating the leftovers. I will make this again! Thanks for sharing, Marie.
