Sloppy Joe Mac and Cheese
This is a big hit with the family! I use McCormick sloppy joe mix, and also add half of a green pepper, and half of a red pepper, with a medium onion (all diced very small) in with the meat while it cooks, then adding the tomatoes & paste to complete the sloppy joe mix. Some reviews state they would prefer to try using canned Manwich to save on time, but I do recommend using the homemade version with the sloppy joe mix packet because of the consistency you get vs. using a canned sauce. Either way would work though. If you prefer to make a homemade version that the recipe calls for, McCormick Sloppy Joe mix comes out seriously close to the flavor you get with Manwich! I prefer the homemade version because it’s saucey, but not overly saucey, which works better with this recipe when layering it. The cheese sauce you make & added shredded cheese to mix with the macaroni, is absolutely awesome and makes for a very homemade taste, and is NOT dry at all. I do not sauté onions in the pan with butter as noted, because I do that beforehand with the meat. I do put butter in the pan, melt it and then add the half & half, flour & spices as instructed, etc. Be warned, the mac & cheese part of this recipe makes a ton! I cut back to about 10-12 ounces of pasta, and I layer the sloppy joe and the macaroni twice when I use a big enough casserole dish. If you're looking for a heartier meat mix to this dish, I do recommend doubling the sloppy joe, and cutting back on the mac & cheese!

Jennie's Heavenly Slow Cooker Chicken
Husband was totally impressed! This had to be one of the easiest and the most flavorful chicken dishes I've ever made! It also kept the chicken moist and the mixture doesn't burn. Same as Angel Chicken but either way, it's terrific!! The wine gives the flavor some nice zip...curious to sub chicken broth one of these times. I originally thought it was strange to cook the mixture in a pan before putting it in the crock pot, but after doing it, I could see why. Good recipe with good instructions. Love, love, love it!
