Slow Cooker Easy Multi-Bean Soup
I soaked the beans first. I thought that might reduce the cooking time, but it did not. I actually had to cook them longer than the recipe said to get them soft enough. Needs more spices than the recipe calls for. I added some smoked pork, which was a good addition.

Slow Cooker Italian Chicken-Lentil Soup
Because of work, I had to cook this longer than the stated time. It was alright but my lentils weren't cooked as much as I would have liked, my carrots were perfectly cooked, and my zucchini was overcooked. No one else had this issue?

Wow! Too spicy for my family. I love the idea but next time will only use 1/4 tsp. cayenne.

Jamaican Jerk Chicken
I adapted this so I could just marinate the chicken in the fridge without first cooking anything on the stove. So I skipped the red pepper, minced the green onion finely, and substituted garlic powder for the garlic. It worked great and tasted yummy. I would reduce or completely omit the curry next time. Also, I might add allspice which is in a lot of Jamaican chicken recipes.

Coconut Shrimp with Dipping Sauce
I tried two baked coconut shrimp recipes from this site. The other one (which used honey, not egg) was better. I would suggest turning the shrimp midway through baking.

After making this, I think the photo is misleading. My bars were much much thinner than those shown in the picture. Also, from the picture, I thought the base would be soft and creamy, but instead it was chewy -- kind of like the cookie dough in chewy chocolate chip cookies. This was okay but, with so many other great cookie/bar recipes out there, I don't think I'd make this again.
