Slow Cooker Marmalade Curry Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
Instant favorite! With just minimal adjustments this dish was perfect. I served it with carmelized onion naan over a bed of rice and quinoa. Lots of flavors here..I had fun as my wife tried to identify the different tastes in it without knowing the ingredients (she couldn't put her finger on the marmalade). The modifications I made are as follows: 1 250 ml jar marmalade, 3 teaspoons curry powder and add 1 can coconut milk 1 hour before it is done. I did NOT find this dish too sweet or too spicy at all...just right. I will be making this many times over.

Hearty Hash Brown Dinner

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
Delicious! My Wife and 1 year old both loved it too! 4/5 because that much Velveeta would have surely ruined the dish! This was a great tasting meal that will have a place in our regular dinner rotation. Leftovers were awesome too! Do yourself a favor and be sure to make these modifications: Replace Velveeta with 100g shredded cheddar, Add 4 cloves garlic and use Cream of Broccoli soup instead. Next time I am going to try using fresh potatoes instead of hash browns!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
Pretty good but needed quite a few modifications. I also found that the leftovers didn't reheat very well. I had never ate anything like this before so I wasn't sure what to expect. The end result was chicken soup-tasting concoction with bready dumplings inside. I would definitely look into substituting something for the chicken soup as I found the chickeny-stock taste to be too prominent. This recipe also desperately needed veggies so I added 2 cups of 'em as well as 4 cloves of minced garlic. I only used 1 can Pillsbury Country Biscuits (10 Count) and that was MORE than enough. I flattened the dough before placing it in the cooker like was suggested but was not necessary. The result for me was thinner biscuits in the end than I would have liked. Because my wife loved the dumpling part, I might make this again, but probably not any time soon.

Mushroom Lentil Barley Stew

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
My Wife and I really enjoyed this after only minor customization, and it is SO easy to make! It has really nice flavors and my wife was very pleasantly surprised to see me attempt something that was vegetarian. I didn't even find myself wishing there was meat in it! Although I didn't enjoy the leftovers so much (slightly gummy texture), the first feed with some garlic bread went down famously! I will definitely be making this again. Here are some minor adjustments that we made: Used 1 portabella mushroom cap instead of the shitake (availability issue), 1 whole white onion in place of dried flakes, Upped the amount of garlic to 4 cloves (will increase this even more next time as we are garlic lovers), and reduced the amount of black pepper to 1 teaspoon (although next time I will use even less as we still found that much black pepper to be a bit overpowering). Only had to cook on high for 4 hours and it was ready!
