Best Ever Slow Cooker Italian Beef Roast
I make this all the time. Any cut of beef will work. Also, I just use the Aujus Garvy and Italian Dressing mix, then add water instead of boullion. It is salty enough with just the mixes. The juice is perfect for a French Dip sandwich. This is my go to on busy days. I dont even thaw the meat sometimes, I just throw it in the crock pot frozen...YUMMY...!!!!!!

Keon's Slow Cooker Curry Chicken
Ok, I have not eaten this yet, as it is in the crockpot right now...I have to tell you I could not wait to review this. the sauce itself was delicious!!!! Here is what I did. It is a snowy day here in N. Virginia so I did not have all the ingredients on hand and grocery store, only 1 mile away, was not an option. I used boneless skinless chicken thighs and placed in bottom of crockpot. I did not have cream of mushroom soup, so I just doubled the cream of chicken soup. I did not have coconut milk and after research online ended up just using sourcream. I doubled the recipe for my family of 5, but only used 1 tsp of cayenne. I placed baby carrotts on top of the chicken and poured the curry sauce over. It has been cooking for almost 3 hours now and smells heavenly!!!! I usually don't like reviews when people have not tried or made the recipe, but I am positive this one is gonna be a keeper. Gonna serve with rice and steamed veggies. I'll check back after dinner and let you know how the family rates it...

Linguine with Chicken and Sauteed Vegetables
YUM..YUM..YUM.. Ok this one just plain made me curious. I followed the driections with just a little change. I used more soy than called for. I acutally forgot the broccoli at the end. It did not make a difference. This was a great dish for a quick healthy dinner. I think I may just make this as a vegeterian dish next time and add even more cabbage. Either way it is a definite KEEPER!!!!
