Slow Cooker Peaches 'N Cream Oatmeal
I enjoyed this dish. However, for the amount of milk they required (I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk, BTW) I ended up having to add another cup of regular oats to my almost done steel cut oats. Next time I will reduce the amount of milk required by half.
Slow Cooker Cubed Steak
I like cubed steak, but I detest the toughness and stringiness that you often find. The crock pot is totally the solution! The cube steak was fork tender. Literally. Because I was looking at two different recipes, I had to make a decision. Next time I'll fix it. So, I used cream of chicken and cream of mushroom, along with a pack of Lipton onion mix. I also sliced up an onion and put in there. All of the creams were low-sodium. However, I always season my meat. Next time I'll half the pack of Lipton onion mix and will not season the meat. Other than a little extra salt, it was delicious! Thankfully I served it with wild rice with very little salt.
Salmon Fresh Spring Rolls (the original recipe is for shrimp)
I enjoyed this dish. It was my first time using rice paper wrappers. I didn't tear any but as you can see, they aren't wrapped super tight. I baked a piece of salmon and so my rolls include baked salmon, lettuce, carrots, sweet peppers, cucumbers, and quinoa. The peanut dipping sauce was yummy. The recipe for that is also in the link above.
Berbere Bowl w/Sauteed Swiss Chard
Hands down, this dish was sooo good! I ate it two days in a row and am craving for more. Because it looked so good in the original video, I immediately purchased the berbere spice from Etsy. Hadn't heard of this Ethiopian spice, but it was worth the wait. This dish is vegan and there are not enough words to describe how wonderful it is.
