Slow Cooker Balsamic Garlic Beef

This was quite tasty with a very different flavor than most of the crockpot recipes we've tried.  It was right on the edge of the level of sweetness I like meat to have, which was surprising since there was nothing particularly sweet involved except a little honey.  It combined marvelously with mashed potatoes with sour cream, and brussels sprouts with butter, salt and garlic powder.

Baked Banana Pudding with Meringue Topping Recipe

This sounds a little scary for beginner cooks, but trust me, it's not hard!  The key is patience; two of the steps take longer than you expect.  But the result is so very worth it; a delightful dessert either hot or cold, that is not overpowering in either banana flavor or sweetness.

Slow Cooker Simplicity Ham and Potato Casserole

This is a slow-cooker version of one of my favorite meals as a child, my grandmother's Ham and Potato Casserole.  It's an exceedingly simple meal, more so even than the original already simple recipe, but the taste is wonderful.  Just perfect for a cold winter day!
