Creamy German Coleslaw
I've made this one a few times, and I'm pretty sure it's the keeper. Easy, fast, (I think it takes me about 6 minutes, and that includes chopping the cabbage), and just the perfect classic version I had been looking for. I've tried a lot of them; the cooked versions, the ones with a cup of sugar and mayo, the ones with mustard or horseradish or whatever, and they're all too sweet, or too gloppy, or just not the flavor I was missing, this one is just perfect, and the exact right amount of dressing for the softball sized organic cabbages I usually have languishing in the crisper. I do add a carrot, and today I added a green pepper that I needed to use up, I imagine you can add anything you like and it would be fine. I mix the dressing in a tupperware bowl, dump the cabbage and carrot on top, shake, done, and even better the next day. Really happy with this one, thank you!

Black Bean and Sweet Potato Quesadillas
Tried this for dinner tonight, really good! I also went the lazy route, once the potatoes were softish, I poured the water off and added black beans and corn, garlic, chili, and onion powder to the same pot, then just mushed it all together. Spread on whole wheat tortilla and added spinach and cheese, and voila, dinner! Nice basic recipe that you could add lots of interesting things to, definitely a keeper. Thanks!

Slow Cooker Mongolian Beef
I rarely write reviews, but this one deserves a rave. I followed the directions almost exactly, except I used super-cheap, thin-cut eye of round, and it turned out ridiculously well. It tastes like Korean BBQ, which is awesome, and I was surprised that the onions still had some crunch after four hours. I served it over brown rice the first night, then the second night I just put the leftovers back in the crock pot with some bean sprouts and some frozen stir fry veg, served it in a bowl with cellophane noodles, and the second time was just as good. I will be trying this with chicken next, and maybe with some water chestnuts and bamboo shoots, things that will hold up in the crock pot like the onions. Super easy, fantastic flavor, totally recommended as written, but has tons of potential. Thanks for sharing.
