Slow Cooker Mediterranean Minestrone Casserole
Great flavors. Always looking for new ways to incorporate garbonzo beans into meals. I added grilled some andouille sausage just before serving and it really gave the dish a fab kick. Cooking the dry pasta in the crockpot was an epic fail tho - pastey mush. Will never do that again. For the 20 mins it takes to cook pasta in the crockpot, just cook some up on the stove. Next time, I'll ladle the casserole on top of pasta, like chili joe on mac.

Great basic recipe that I never considered putting together. Thx to other posters' suggestions, I added sauteed onions and thick cut mushrooms, spicy Italian sausage without the casing, sprinkled in some garlic salt and used zesty tomato sauce. Great result for a super easy dinner, and able to freeze the leftovers for emergency meals.

Brownie Goody Bars
I was unsure of this recipe since some of the reviews are mixed. I could only find a recipe for 8x8 pan so I doubled the recipe for the 9x13 pan. I used Marshmallow Fluff instead and was only able to put about 75% of the container on it. Need to refrigerate it so the fluff doesn't ooze out but leave it out for a few minutes before cutting so the chocolate isn't so brittle that it cracks. This is fab - very, very rich but not very sweet the way I made it. I prefer less sweet desserts and this was wonderful. Brought it to a bbq and others raved about it as well, including my DH who rarely raves about much ;-)
