Slow Cooker Lasagna

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
Delicious and perfect. I feel it's a good idea to read every review if possible, at least skim them, because everyone's crockpot and experience is different and you can avoid costly mistakes. I did that and was able to make the adjustments that made this dish turn out wonderful. This was the first dish I made in my new 6-quart slow cooker (call me lasagna lover). I used 3 cups jarred spaghetti sauce, 1 cup water, and half a can diced tomatoes in juice because I had it left over from another day. I added an egg to the ricotta and used minced dried onion instead of a fresh one, and garlic powder. Also added some Italian spices, not too much, and no salt. I used 12 oz. whole wheat lasagna, the regular kind, not precooked. I cooked the whole dish on low for EXACTLY 4 hours, and it turned out heavenly. I think a lot of the problem of dry, chewy noodles comes from not be tempted to keep on cooking. Cover the noodles in sauce and mozzarella, and you will be fine. I didn't use the high setting at all. Will repeat often.

Slow Cooker Oatmeal

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2010
Delicious! Perfect. After reading all the reviews -- and not having any steel cut oatmeal on hand, just regular old fashioned Quaker Oats -- I made a heavenly breakfast in my 3-qt slow cooker. The key was the 3:1 ratio of liquid to oats. I used 4 cups water and 2 cups milk to 2 cups oats. I added a cut-up Granny Smith apple, pinch of salt, and 1 t. real vanilla. Cooked on low all night (approx. 8 hrs) and am enjoying it now with nothing but brown sugar added. I'll be cooking oatmeal this way from now on. No sticky cooker, by the way -- I sprayed with oil first and it rinsed out in a flash.
