Slow Cooker Mac and Cheese
My friend, Jeannine, had me over for dinner and made this in the crock pot. I love Mac and Cheese and I am a big fan. I have to say this was probably THE BEST Mac and Cheese I have ever had. I HAD to get this recipe! REALLY, really yummy, probably one of the best any of us will ever taste! I like Kelsey's idea of adding some chipotle sauce to leftovers the next day, too!

Easy Chicken Satay
I made this for a large party of 30 people (60 skewers) and everyone raved about the recipe- it was the hit of the party, even more so than the filet tenderloin we served! Per the other reviews (and my personal taste), I modified this recipe slightly. I added the following to both the marinade and to the satay sauce: I used "Lite" coconut milk, red curry paste instead of the curry powder (find in the ethnic foods / Asian section of most large grocery stores), fresh ginger and lemongrass paste (find both in a refrigerated squeeze tube in the produce section of most large grocery stores), cayenne pepper and red pepper flakes, Lawry's seasoning salt(I use this to bring out flavor in everything I cook) and fresh ground pepper. I also added a little white sugar to sweeten the satay sauce a bit, as well as some cornstarch to thicken slightly and to give the sauce a 'glossy' look. I made vegetable skewers to serve alongside the chicken with a simple balsamic vinegarette marinade (just bottled salad dressing). Overall, with the flavor-enhancing additions, this is a definite keeper! So many people asked for the recipe, I have to send out an email to the guests of the party! This works great for a crowd, as you can easily adjust the serving sizes online. We will keep this recipe on rotation at our house!

French Toast Casserole
Great, easy recipe. I tweaked it to make enough for a very large, days old baguette. I used an 11 x 13 pan with the baguette sliced into large rounds, 2 eggs + 3 'egg substitute' eggs, 2 C milk, a bit under 1/2 t salt and 1 1/4 t vanilla and only half of the cinnamon. I turned the sliced bread halfway through the sitting time to make sure the bread was drenched thoroughly. It came out GREAT. Very easy for kids to help make, and super yummy. Enjoy!
