Easy Pie Crust

This looked okay at first, but it tasted like rock-hard cardboard. I used olive oil, but I hardly think that would have made enough of a difference as to have it taste so bad. Tried to make a quiche with it, am going to scoop up the egg from the crust and eat it like scrambled eggs. Such a waste.

Made this for my boyfriend's birthday (huge chocolate fiend) and he LOVED it. Delicious and moist.

Such a good comfort soup for the winter. I added cut up sausage and it was perfect!

So easy to make, but so reliably good. Have made it a few times and it was delicious every time.

There are really good! Even my boyfriend who rarely steps into the kitchen was able to make them!

Found it a bit dry, but not bad! Nice amount of sweatness, and definitely makes me feel better for eating a sweet treat with less fat!

Easy Lasagna with Uncooked Noodles

Really easy. I made it healthier by using ground turkey, whole wheat noodles, more veggies and low-fat cheese. Honestly, would never have been able to tell the difference. However, I felt it needed more sauce. I ran out of sauce after 2 layers. I found myself wishing I had put in more sauce as I ate it. Also, I suggest pouring water into the pan just enough to cover the noodles to make sure they cook. Don't worry, it doesn't seem to affect the taste at all!

Honey-Garlic Slow Cooker Chicken Thighs

I didn't have basil and I used 8 chicken thighs and 5 cloves of garlic instead. I also ended up just cooking it for 5 hours instead of the 6. I think 6 would have been too long for my slow cooker and thighs because they were already a bit on the dry side. I would try 4.5 hours next time. Another thing is that it does taste borderline too salty. The flavours were strong in general, but I did find myself needing to mix the chicken and sauce with plain rice to make it more palatable. I think I would go with less soy sauce next time, maybe 1/3 of a cup. The sauce was the consistency of water. Next time, I would make less of it and add some corn starch to thicken it up. All in all, it was pretty easy, I think it's just a matter of tweaking it to my taste. I would make this again with adjustments.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Super easy. Very easy. Tasty. Watery sauce in the end, but you can easily thicken it with a little corn starch. I used broth instead of water. I only bought a 2lbs roast (we're only two people) and seared the meat beforehand. Still turned out delicious. Nice way to come home from work with dinner ready to serve.
