Creamy Cinnamon Rice Pudding
I have to believe that there is an error it the ingredients list somewhere. If you use 3 quarts of milk with one cup of rice there is just no way that this pudding will set. I did try it exactly as written. Even after reading other comments, I just could not get this recipe to work. I thought maybe the recipe meant 3 CUPS of milk instead of 3 QUARTS; but then that still did not sound right, because it calls for 2 cups of sugar which would make it awfully sweet. I have finally given up on this one; which is really too bad, as I wanted to like it.

Kathy's Delicious Whole Slow Cooker Chicken
I tried something different with this recipe and wow was it a hit..! I happened to come on about ten sets of chicken drumsticks and thighs and did not know quite what I was going to do with them. I had been saving this recipe and thought why not try this in the slow cooker with all these chicken pieces. I prepared all the pieces just as instructed for the original whole chicken recipe, and made quite a bit of extra sauce. I cooked the chicken pieces for about 7 to 7 1/2 hours, by which time the meat was falling off the bone. Then I shredded all that chicken meat and saved it for chicken tacos, or fajitas or to put over rice. I have several bags in my freezer to use as needed. The flavor is absolutely magnificent. My husband and I just love it. It was a bit difficult to pick the chicken out of all those bones, but it was so tender that it did not really take very long. I will definitely use this recipe on a whole chicken as written originally, and will also use this sauce on other items as well. It sounds as if it would work well on pork too. Thanks so much to Kathy for sharing it.

Slow Cooker Chili II
This is an excellent recipe just as written. I did make some changes to suit our tastes, but did not need to for the sake of the recipe. I just wanted to make a double batch, so I added some ground sausage instead of extra ground beef and added a few different types of beans instead of just doubling the beans called for in the recipe. I used kidney, pinto, black and boracho beans and I used 5 cans of beans and a can of stewed tomatoes. I added the tomatoes towards the end, as I found that I had drained too much liquid from the beans and just needed a little more moisture. By the way, I did save the liquid from the beans and used it along the way to add back into the chili if needed. This is really a great recipe, and I have frozen a bunch of it to have for quick meals. This is a keeper.
