My cooking tragedies
My first cheesecake could not have been a bigger disaster. Had to make several trips to the store and the first crust ended up on the floor. The pan was too small and it overflowed. It tasted great, but I was EXHAUSTED at the end and swore I would never make another cheesecake. And I never have!

Slow-Cooker Barbecue Ribs
I liked baking the ribs first. Make sure u dry the ribs with a paper towel before u salt and pepper or they will not brown. I used 1 bottle of Diana rib and chicken BBQ sauce plus 1 bottle Diana maple BBQ sauce for the sauce. I also cut up the ribs after baling before they went in the slow cooker. Delicious!!!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue
Very good. I used already defrosted chicken breasts. Would not use frozen meat in the slow cooker. It would cause the food to stay in the "danger zone" temperature too long! Definitely use a good quality bbq sauce. Also, definitely shred the chicken 30-60 minutes before the end of the cooking cycle. The chicken soaks up the sauce and it creates the texture of shredded bbq chicken. Thickens it up too.

Bacon for the Family or a Crowd
I liked this method - much less mess. The bacon did turn out nice & straight which I really liked. Cooked evenly too. I agree with the other reviewers - I had my oven on 425 and it still took about 30 minutes. I also used regular bacon (not thick sliced) and it worked fine. You can get other things done while your bacon is cooking in the oven.
