Slow Cooker Beef Stew III
This was EXCELLENT!! I followed the recipe ingredients to the T and it was perfect - great flavor, perfect consistency (nice and thick) and all around delicious. HOWEVER, I only had this in the crockpot for 11 hours and it was perfect! The meat fell apart, the veggies were really tender (onions nearly dissolved so don't worry about it seeming too oniony!) I am not sure I would have liked it cooked longer - I think it might be too mushy. I will definitely stick with this beef stew recipe - its fantastic.

Apple Stuffed Pork Chops
Perfectly delicious fall recipe! I stayed pretty true to the recipe with the exception of doubling the amount of onions used (I wanted the stuffing a little more savory) and I used a 2 lb. pork loin which I sliced 1/2 through lengthwise and stuffed it (after seasoning it inside and out with salt, pepper and poultry seasoning) and cooked it 1/2 hour with foil, 1/2 hour without PERFECT. I also made a gravy using pan drippings, chicken stock, and apple cider - seasoning it to taste. I highly recommend using fresh bread crumbs (I used fresh bread and ran it through the food processor) and unlike other reviewers - did NOT think there was too much bread. This is a fantastic recipe and is a great way to use pork. Will be a regular in the fall meal rotation!

Quinoa and Black Beans
I have never cooked quinoa before and this was the perfect recipe to start with! Very quick, very easy, VERY satisfying and delicious!! The only reason for 4 instead of 5 stars is that I would also follow others suggestions and add some red peppers or zucchini for added color - but great nonetheless. I also used several dashes of the green Tabasco sauce. Thought I'd have plenty for leftovers for lunch... son loved it and finished it off.
