Slow Cooker Baked Potatoes
I was surprised at how good these turned out. I followed the recipe (minus the foil) and used 4 potatoes in a larger (5 qt) crockpot, which is why I think they cooked quicker. I cooked on high for 3 1/2 hours and they turned out perfectly. I noticed they were pretty soft after 3 hours so they probably would've been fine if I had taken them out even earlier. I have had problems finding just the right temp and time to cook baked potatoes in both the microwave as well as oven, but the crock pot method seemed to lock the moisture in and cook everything evenly. Once they were done, I added a little extra salt/ pepper, butter, and shredded cheese and they tasted soooo good! I think this is the best basic baked potato recipe I've come across and will definitely try again, with more potatoes next time.

Delectable Marinated Chicken
This wasn't 'delectable' in my opinion, but wasn't horrible. I followed the recipe, but used honey instead of molasses since I didn't have it on hand. To me, this ended up tasting somewhat like teriyaki chicken, when I was hoping for something with a little more zest. I think I'll stick to my Italian Salad dressing marinade for grilled chicken - always ends up juicy with just the right amount of flavor.

Bacon Wrapped Smokies
Like everyone else, I thought these were delish. I cooked at 350 for 50 minutes then broiled on high for 5 mins to get the bacon crisp. It was slightly too long and burned the bacon just a bit; next time I will only broil for 2 or 3 mins. I only made these for my hubby and myself so just poured some warm syrup over them instead of sticking in a crock pot -- awesome recipe!
