    "A hit at my house! I made this yesterday to eat after an afternoon of skating and everyone enjoyed (3 & 5 year old sons), even my DH who isn't a fan of food made in the crock pot gave it thumbs up! Made exactly as written and cooked on low for 7 1/2 hours. Put some frozen peas in, turned to high, and it was ready to serve in about 20 minutes. ..."

    "Fantastic! I made this last week and my family loved it! I used ground ginger instead of fresh and I used a reduced sodium soy sauce. I uped the garlic a bit ('cause we love garlic!). I also doubled the sauce quantity as per previous reviewers. Once the chicken was cooked, I put it under the broiler to caramelize and it was yummy!! Doesn't q..."

    "I made these potatoes this past weekend for Thanksgiving. While the "make ahead" method with the crock pot drew me to this recipe, we weren't crazy about them. They tasted too much like cream cheese and sour cream. While they were very creamy, our tastes prefer the traditional butter and milk method. I will try this method again with tradition..."

    "I was going to post this recipe myself but found it was already here! This is always a huge hit whenever I make it. I use the refridgerated cookie dough logs and just break it up on my pan and do the same for the top layer. The cheesecake peeks through but that's okay. So easy and soooo good! Thanks for posting Kelly M!"

    "We had a Thanksgiving pot luck lunch at work and I decided to bring in lasagna. I happened upon this recipe and am so glad that I did!! I tried it at home first and then brought a fresh one into work. Both times - rave reviews!! It was easy to make. I did my own tweaking: more garlic (because I love it), more onion, extra ricotta and cottage ..."

    "Definitely better the longer it sits! I prefer the cream to be creamier (this was a bit thicker) and I think I'd cut back on the amount of Marsala used for dipping the cookies. It was a little overpowering for my taste. was delicious!"

    "Traditionally, you're supposed to put the water and milk together to boil in the pot, along with a cinnamon stick and lemon rind. It makes a cinnamon-flavoured milk. Arborio rice (Italian rice) produces the best result since it needs to be "sticky". A staple dessert in Portuguese culture, and I love it!"
