Apple Oatmeal Crisp
Yummy apple pie crisp! Some said it was dry and it was a tad bit, but I don't like real soggy crisps. Granny's are the best for this one because of all the sugar. The cinnamon was perfect. I use vietnamise cinnamon which is a stronger than your typical grocery store cinnamon. Maybe a sprinkle of water of top of apples to help moisten. 3 medium-size Granny's equaled 3 cups. Would also be good with some chopped walnuts on top. And don't forget the vanilla ice cream when it's hot! Thanks for recipe.

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast
Very rich and tasty. I slow-cooked on LOW for 5 hours and the temp inside registered 165-170 degrees. Don't overcook or the meat will be dry. It needs a bit more liquid to go over meat or make gravy with. I also recommend browning the roast on all sides to give it a little color and flavor. Thanks for recipe!

Sour Cream Pork Chops
Delicious! And a great way to fix pork chops without thoroughly frying them on stovetop. I used 8 boneless butterfly chops, slow-cooked them on High for 4 hours, though I think next time, I'll see if they're done at 3 hours. They were falling-apart tender, but just a wee bit on the dry side, but the gravy was outstanding, and had lots of if (we like a lot of gravy). I used 2 cups of chicken broth for the bouillon and water, and 3 tbsp flour. If you like it a bit more tangy, double the sour cream. We served it with mashed potatoes (put some of the gravy on) and green beans. There was so much gravy left over after the chops were eaten, my boyfriend sopped it up with some bread and finished it off! Thanks for a good recipe.
