Italian Stewed Tomatoes
I'm a fan of slow cooking; I had 4 pounds of past-prime, wrinkled grape tomatoes and thought this recipe might work with a slow cooker. I wasn't disappointed! I didn't have celery, so I didn't use it. I added one chopped raw onion. I also added Italian seasoning and garlic, as some other reviewers did. I didn't peel the tomatoes, but I cooked them as-is, on low heat, overnight. It was so good, in fact, that I'm going to make it again, this time with Roma and beefsteak tomatoes. It tasted delicious when I combined it with our rice-cooker rice "mixture" that I made (1/2 cup rice, 1/2 cup spelt, 1/2 cup quinoa, 1/2 cup barley, 1/2 cup millet, 1/2 cup chopped onion). Great recipe!

Rosemary Roasted Turkey
I added cut up sweet potatoes, onions, and regular potatoes to the pan with the turkey; everything was cooked at the same time and tasted delicious!

Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Casserole
I was thrilled to see a slow cooker recipe, to free up my oven, for Sweet Potato Casserole! It was Turkey Day for just me and my husband, and he doesn't particularly LIKE sweet potatoes, so I felt free to improvise and omit what I didn't have and what I didn't like! I did NOT use the pecans, or any sugar. In a large bowl, I just mashed the ONE can of sweet potatoes (again, it was just for the 2 of us), added a tablespoon of melted margarine, a tablespoon of orange juice, ONE egg, NO milk, no flour, and sprayed the slow cooker with olive oil to grease. I took a lot of people's advice: Cooked on high for 2 hours, turned to low the 3rd hour, and also at the beginning of the 3rd hour, I covered the entire top of the sweet potatoes with LARGE marshmallows (they melted into the potatoes). What a wonderful flavor! I definitely will make this again! Of COURSE I gave it 5 stars, because I didn't make it as written. (If I had made it EXACTLY as written and THEN didn't like it, I THEN would have decreased the number of stars! How can ANYONE give a recipe less than 5 stars if they don't make it EXACTLY as written??? I am still mystified by that!)
