Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake
I was short on two ingredients so I only used 1 1/4 cup sugar and about 3/4 cup sour cream. I didn't have any pecans and didn't think it needed powdered sugar, so I omitted both of those. It still turned out great and when I make it again, I'll probably do the same thing just because I know it will turn out. The cake is super moist and delicious. I didn't find it overly sweet, which may be because of the 3/4 cup less sugar I used, but I suspect those who thought it was too sweet were reacting to the brown and powdered sugars. For the people whose cakes fell apart when unmolding, try letting it cool completely before flipping the pan over. Some cakes only need to cool 10 minutes before removing, but this isn't one of them.

Italian Beef in a Bucket
Very yummy! I omitted the mixed vegetables and used only half the pepperoncini (hot style) and added 6 oz. sweet roasted red peppers and 8 oz. hot pepper & olive giardiniera and the juices/oils of all three. Eighteen hours seemed ridiculous but since this is made with such a lean roast I decided I'd see how it went and found it wouldn't have been the same if I hadn't gone the full 18 hours. After about 12 hours I flipped the roast over so the top could cook in the juices for a while. One reviewer noted the unpleasant smell and I noticed the same thing around hour five but it went away and soon smelled delicious. I was very surprised to be able to actually slice the meat after that long in the slow cooker. I sliced it as thin as I could and then let the slices sit in the juices while I buttered & browned the bread (I used the Fabulous French Loaves recipe divided and shaped into hoagie-style rolls). A slice of provolone between the warm toasted rolls and the hot juicy beef and peppers was a delicious combination that melted in my mouth.
