Lemonade Party Cake
I was worried that this would be too sweet, but it was a nice mix of sweet and tart at the same time. Everyone loved it. Will definately make again!

Chicken Pot Pie with Herb Crust
Thought this was great. I have made it several times since it's so easy. Husband loved it. I did put some pepper, thyme and sage in the filling though, as well as in the crust.

My husband was home from work one day and decided to try this recipe (I had printed it out to make later in the week). He made the whole thing himself, and it was really good!! I used ground beef in place of sausage, since that's what I had on hand, and I would definately suggest more sauce, but overall, it was GREAT! My friend at work saw me eating leftovers and wanted to have the recipe. She was shocked that it was made in a slow cooker! I also turned her on to the betty crocker website, there are many fantastic slow cooker recipes...keep them coming!

Slow-Cooker Barbecued Ribs
These ribs - really easy, but when my husband made them, he didn't remove the skin on the one side of the ribs, so although they were extremely tender (they fell off the bone), the attached skin was definately a distraction. I don't know that we'd make these again, but if I did, I would definately remove the skin between the bones.

The bread was alright. My husband didn't think it tasted like anything, but maybe that was because I didn't use the caraway seeds and used minced onion instead. Overall, I thought it wasn't terrible, but it was quite crumbly when you tried to cut it. Maybe a bit too dry for my taste.

Slow-Cooker Beef Stroganoff
This recipe was super easy to make, but it did seem to have too much "gravy", and a little overpowering taste of cream cheese. I think next time I would try it with only some of the cream cheese and see if that makes a difference. But overall, still a good recipe.

Slow-Cooker Meaty Italian Spaghetti Sauce
Ok, I'm Italian, and I'm EXTREMELY picky about my sauce, so I was skeptical before trying this. I figured it would be a "pizza" night, but I (and my husband), were completely blown away by this sauce! I did you sweet italian sausage, but instead of using just oregano & sweet basil, I used an italian blend of herbs in their place. I will definately make this sauce again!
