Mijo's Slow Cooker Shredded Beef
Hugely disappointed! I followed the recipe almost. Okay, so I subbed celery seed and a pinch of salt for the celery salt, poblanos for the jalapenos, and molasses and water (I was desperate) for the beer/soda. Glad this was a make-ahead meal, as I would have been scrambling if it was tonight's dinner. Boring, flat flavor; spicy without being flavorfully spicy; and leaves a smokey aftertaste! Hopefully I can turn it into a soup or something to dilute the flavors. Definitely will not make again.

Classic Bran Muffins
As far as bran muffins -- and especially low-fat bran muffins -- go, these are good. I just have trouble giving a bran muffin an "out-of-this-world" 5-star review. I replaced the oil with homemade cinnamon applesauce and used 1/2 wheat, 1/2 white flour. Also added an assortment of dried fruit soaked in hot water (ILO raisins) and about 1/3 cup of walnuts. Hot from the oven with a pad of butter they were great! Scaled the recipe for 30 muffins and made 24 nice-sized ones. ****SUGGEST BAKING AT 350 DEGREES FOR 20 MIN IF YOUR MUFFIN TINS ARE DARK****

Slow Cooker Beef Stew IV
I'm really leaning toward 5 stars on this, but it's not OMG! good, and my husband rated it a 3.5 because he thinks it's missing something... Anyway, this IS very good. Simple, straight-forward comfort food. The preparation did take almost an hour, though. Used chuck roast cut into large cubes for the stew meat. Doubled or tripled the veggies (large chop celery, carrots) - definitely a good change. I used about a cup of Malbec and a can of beef broth in place of the water. Did not sautee the onions. Added a few cloves of minced garlic. Cooked on high 4 hours. Did not need to thicken in the end. Overall very good; would definitely make again. Next time, less (or a tamer) wine, maybe sautee the onions for flavor only, and add peas at the end. Makes about 8 servings.

The best wintertime meals need a long, slow simmer while you're doing something else.
