Slow-Cooker Curried Sweet Potato and Lentil Stew
This was really great tasting!!! I don't LOVE sweet potatoes but I LOVE them in this dish. Listen to the other reviewers about the green beans. This had a pleasant sweet flavor. Have a heavy hand with the spices. I didn't have any problem with anything getting mushy. I wish I made more.

Indian Split Peas with Vegetables
Not the best thing I've ever made, but I think with some tweaking it could be an alright dish. The oil and herb combo is a yummy way to cook the cauliflower, but the dish as a whole needs some more flavoring. I added some fresh parsley and a splash of fresh lemon juice to brighten up the flavor along with a 'heavy' measuring of spices. Maybe some diced tomatoes would be a welcomed addition as well.

Slow Cooker Potato and Double-Corn Chowder
not a horrible dish, but the flavor is rather bland - seems to be missing some major ingredient. It also has a strong canned corn taste, which doesn''t bother me, but I''m not thrilled about it either. I think adding 1/2 lb smoked turkey sausage might add some flavor along with some hot pepper sauce possibly.

I''d have to say that this is a very unique tasting chili. I am not a huge fan of cloves but added them anyway (but a little less) and it gave the dish a wonderful earthy taste. I boiled and shredded three large chicken breasts and added 3.5 cups of broth and I think next time I''d add a little more. I used dried parsley instead of the fresh cilantro and added some Cayenne pepper to give it some kick. I would make this again. super easy, super tasty, and super fast.

Speedway Pasta Salad
I thought this recipe was good, the onion was very strong, and I wouldn''t put as much in next time. I also think I will use homemade Italian dressing next time.
