Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
Good Base but need to make several adjustments. 1) On the verge of too salty (get reduced sodium soup if you can) 2) Seasoning - I just added 1/2-1 tblspn of sage for some wholesomeness. Might have been bland without it. Obviously based on your preference. Thyme might have been yummy too! 3) Onion was too much/strong. Either need a very small onion or stick to half an onion. 4) Dough. When I put the dough in (1 small canister), half of them plumped up maybe 30% and the others disintegrated and were mush which would have grossed out others I was cooking for so I just removed the dumplings and served the chicken (I still ate some of them). However, I did cook the meal on low, as it cooked while at work (8 hours) so I'm thinking maybe, had I thrown it up to high and then did the dough it might have worked out better (that or cooked them in a separate pot w/the crock pot juices) . . . but I feel like the attraction to these meals are the idea you can leave them on while at work and eat readily when you get home. 5-6 hours requires a half day of work or weekend meal which defeats the purpose for me. I'm being a bit critical here but crock pot meals are pretty straight forward so I expect to not have to make so many adjustments. I think my adjustments were necessary and not just preferences.

Portobello Mushroom Burgers
I thought this was pretty amazing. I used Sharp provolone from the deli. Whole wheat buns from the bakery, smeared left over marinade on the bottom bun and made a avocado mash (avocado, diced red onion, ez pepper, ez cajun seasoning, lemon juice to taste) for the top bun. Added tomato, red onion and spring greens mix. Delicious! I think the guac (or mash as I call it), really adds depth and flavor that others seem to suggest is missing.
