Christmas Morning Oatmeal
2 stars based on the cooking outcome, not flavor. This recipe did not work for me or my crockpot. There was way too much liquid, the oatmeal was mushy and the oatmeal burned to the side (thankfully I used a liner). It smelled good, but based on the looks alone, my hubby refused to try it. I did eat 1 bowl full, it possibly could be salvaged by adding more oats while it is still warm. Flavor wise, I had to make some adjustments since I didn't have all the ingrdients (although they shouldn't have affected the outcome). I did use regular rolled oats (not quick cook or steel cut) I used frozen cherries as my fruit, added walnuts before cooking (big mistake-they turned out soft an inedible). I didn't have regular apple juice or cranbery juice so I used a Motts Medley Apple (w/ carrot) it was ok, but not the best. I did end up adding to my bowl more brown sugar, as the cherries were a bit tart. I didn't think my crockpot would let me set it to warm for 8hrs so I used low for 8hrs, it did then sit on warm for an extra hour. I think this recipe may still be doable, with some tweeks for my crockpot. Next time I will definitely try WARM and less liquid by atleast 1 cup. Based on what I've read, steel cut oats probably would give better results (but they are much more expensive to mess up on) Liner bag is a must.

Triple Berry Crisp
Just needs a pinch of salt. My family devoured this recipe at our last get together. I usually make it with whatever frozen fruit I have on hand (cherries, apples, peaches, mango pineapple mix, berries). No need to thaw the fruit, just throw it in and sprinkle the sugar on top (or toss it in the sugar), cook until bubbly in the middle (cooking time will be a bit longer). This last time I made a 1/2 batch in my toaster oven using a few good dashes of homemade pumpkin pie spice (instead of cinnamon/nutmeg) and tossed the frozen apple slices in cinnamon sugar, the flavor was amazing.

Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie Stew
Good but missing something, the way I made it. Didn't measure any of the spices (added too little pepper), skipped the bouillon cubes, used 1 can cream of celary & 1 can cream of chicken, and added a can of water (should have skipped that, didn't come out as creamy as I would have like, I was initially worried I didn't have enough liquid, especially since I was using frozen chicken) and used a frozen seasoning mix with onion and peppers. Turned out good, but not quiete chicken pot pie filling like I was expecting. I think next time it needs more onion. I added everything at once, instead of adding the frozen veg. at the end, and it turned out fine. I also started with 6-8 frozen chicken tenderloins, did not bother to cut them, much easier to just shred them at the end.
