Mile-High Peanut Butter-Brownie Pie
This was my third attempt at a peanut butter pie because my husband LOVES anything with peanut butter. This one was by far the best out of the 3 recipes that I tried. The first time I made it exactly as stated except I used a pre-made chocolate pie crust because that was what I had on hand. It didn't work with that crust, but the filling was soooo good, that I had to try again. The next time I made it with no crust and just let the brownie be the crust. Also, I drizzled the top with chocolate sauce and put peanut butter chips on top. AMAZING!!! Just the right mix of peanut butter, chocolate, and creamy goodness.

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken
I only gave this recipe 3 stars because it is quite bland. It was tender and juicy (although I think I overcooked it 30-60 minutes) but it just tasted so plain, my family passed the salt and pepper around... twice. I think that I am perhaps spoiled from my families beer-butt chicken recipe... there is simply no comparison, so while this chicken is ok, the other is soooo much better.

Healthy Honey Carrot Cookies
This recipe as is, only rates a 3, as it would be pretty bland; however, with a few other ingredients to spice it up, it has the potential to be a 5. Therefore, I gave it a 4. I added a 2nd egg per some other suggestions as well as 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, 1/4 tsp of nutmeg, a dash of ginger, and 2 tbsp of white sugar. They were actually very good. My 16 year old raised his eyes at the carrots, but ate a couple and said that they would have been better with some chocolate, but otherwise were pretty good. My 7 year old turned her nose up at the carrot cookies, but after I forced her to try one, she sheepishly ate every last crumb, and my 2 1/2 year old ate 3 and said "delicious!". With the addition of the spices, these were not bland at all. I cooked them for 14 minutes and they were not dry at all either, only light and fluffy and yummy... although I may sneak in some semi-sweet choco chips next time instead of the 2 tbsp of sugar.
