Greek Cream Cheese-Stuffed Chicken
I added fresh chives instead of onion, fresh basil, oregano and a little garlic. I also added a little fresh squeezed lemon juice to the cream cheese. I mixed the spices and chives with the cream cheese and spread this mixture on the chicken. Then I sprinkled the feta, olives and tomato on top. I drizzled a little olive oil on top before baking. I didn't have any spinach so left that out but will add next time I make it. I baked it in the oven for about 40 minutes. I'd like to try breading it next time. Overall a nice change from what I usually make. I served it with wild rice and steamed asparagus.

Slow Cooker Beef Pot Roast
This is the third time I have made this recipe. It is by far the best pot roast recipe I have ever made. Full of flavour and the gravy is great over mashed potatoes. I agree that searing the beef is key. The tomato paste adds that little something and sautéing the onion garlic and mushrooms adds a lot of flavour. I also sautéed the celery. This is a permanent part of my recipe box. Thanks for the great recipe.

Pomegranate Feta Salad with Lemon Dijon Vinaigrette
This is a great salad. Made it for Christmas dinner this year and it was a very pretty festive salad. I only gave it a 4 because like other reviewers I felt the dressing would be to tart. I cut the red wine vinegar to 2 Tbsp and used 1/2 of a lemon juiced and the zest. A added 2 to 3 Tbsp of maple syrup as a sweetener. I also added 1/2 cup of candied pecans. It was a hit with my guests and a definite keeper for the future.
