Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
I have no idea where all these rave reviews came from...I followed the recipe exactly except the only difference was I used a small can of chicken broth instead of water to cover everything like a lot of people suggested-mistake, because this DEFINITELY needs the water to dilute it. The taste was completely overwhelming to the point where DH and I could barely eat more than a few bites. There was far too much biscuit compared to chicken, and even though I left this in the slow cooker for over 8 hours with the biscuits in for over 2 hours, the biscuits never cooked. They were raw and doughy but we couldn't wait anymore it was already 9 PM. I ended up feeling sick from the rich taste. It was far too much. I would just use 1 can of cream of chicken, water, 1 can of biscuits, and more chicken. But at that point its a completely different recipe so I will still be searching for a chicken and dumplings recipe.

Shepherd's Pie VI
This was so good!!! My first time making Shepherd's Pie and I will never look for another recipe, no need! I followed the suggestions of other reviewers-used 1 packet of brown gravy with 1 cup water instead of the beef broth and added 1/4 cup worcestershire sauce to the meat. We aren't big cooked carrots fans so I added a cup of frozen corn/peas when I added the gravy. Delicious, thank you so much for a great recipe!!

Basic Baked Spaghetti
I expected this to be different. I don't know how, either to have a different texture from normal spaghetti or slightly different taste. It didn't. What is the point of going through the extra 30 minute step and dirtying another dish for it to taste exactly like normal spaghetti with some cheese sprinkled on top? Also, I used a 24oz jar of spaghetti sauce and it was still not enough sauce, so there's no way 16 oz would be.
