About this Cook
I'm a mother, fiance, and photographer! I love to cook and find that no matter how fantastic a recipe is, unless it's baking, I just can't stick with the recipe. It's always changing. You can find more about me here:

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
This was fantastic, with a few changes. I used chicken broth instead of water, and cooked the biscuits for about 90 minutes. I hate uncooked dough (yuck!) so I wanted to make sure they were done. I pressed them down into the juice as well, to make sure they soaked it up! I used about 2T poultry seasoning, and cooked for 4.5 hours. I think more would have resulted in that weird crock pot chicken texture. There were a LOT of biscuits - I used Pillsbury Grands Southern Style - I might do one can next time. It fed the three of us with six servings left over. Everyone loved it, fantastic!

Iowa Pork Steak
Wow! I made this in my crockpot, and admittedly, I didn't follow the recipe exactly. I never do. But I used the basic stuff - the two cans of soup, no water, two packages of fresh mushrooms instead of canned, lots of garlic, the onion, the soup mix, and LOTS of worcestershire. I cooked it about 6 hours in the crockpot, and it was WONDERFUL! My fiancée keeps calling it stew instead of just steaks, which makes me think I could have probably added additional vegetables, but this was really, really good and we will definitely make it again.

Strawberries with Balsamic Vinegar
I don't use pepper, and don't really measure... but I just splash a little vinegar on strawberries and add some sugar. I love to add nectarines too, SO good!
