Taco Casserole
As a senior citizen, living alone, I am always looking for simple recipes. Casseroles are good because I freeze in individual servings. That said, DID NOT like this recipe at all. I am not a fan of using canned soups in recipes because they contain too much sodium. The tomato soup doesn't work. It's too sweet. I would not recommend this recipe. However, I am a good cook. This is probably a good recipe for people who are learning to cook and is pretty fail-safe. So....that's my story and I'm stickin' to it. Happy eating. ;-)

Frank's Favorite Slow-Cooker Thai Chicken
Yes. But, as I am a Senior living alone, I did it my way. Also, I might add, I was a resident of Honolulu for several years so I am very familiar with this style of cooking. Having said that, this is what I did with your recipe to make it my own. I pretty much doubled the recipe because I used a whole chicken, skinned. • I used smooth peanut butter. • Added 1 Tbl. of Fish Sauce • 1 tsp. Hawaiian Sea Salt • I used Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce in lieu of Salsa What I did next may surprise. I sat the whole skinned in my Wolfgang Puck Pressure Cooker. I filled the cavity with the sauce and poured 2 cups of Chicken Stock into the pot around the chicken. I sat the time according to my crockpot table. • When the timer went off and the pressure released, I removed the chicken from the bone and shredded it. • I retired the chicken to the pot and set it on warm and allow the sauce to reduce • It was delicious! • When it cooled to room temperature, I made several meal-size pouches with my seal-a-meal. For Seniors, making meals in batches is important for those days we just don't feel like cooking. Good cooking & God Bless!

Chinese Roasted Chicken
I made a few changes. I omitted fennel & cloves & sherry. I used Aloha Soyu & Sesame Oil. I also used fresh finger. I put all the spices in the cavity of the chicken. I rubbed the chicken inside & out with coarse Hawaiian sea salt. I cooked the chicken breast side down in a cast iron Dutch oven It was delicious. I am 66 & have been cooking since I was about 10 so always make changes to recipes based on past experience. This is a good basic recipe. Just learn to trust your instincts. It just takes practice; like anything else.
