We're 4 "Lawnguiland" (Long Island, NY for those not into the intonation) gals who love food.  OK Nicole lives in Washington state and isn't from "Lawnguiland" but she might as well be--we made her an honorary resident.

Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

This chili is super creamy and spicy. It gets its creaminess from refried beans. Who knew using refried beans as a thickener would be so tasty? (Probably everyone but me). This chili also makes terrific leftovers.

It really doesn't need any garnish besides a squeeze of lime and some fresh cilantro.

Pork Chops with Dijon Cream Sauce

Pork chope with caramelized onion dijon cream sauce

So there is definitely more to this than simply tossing it in the crock post and forgetting it, but the end result is well worth the work! Its about 20-30 minutes of active prep, and then the rest is passive time in your slow cooker.

These slow cooker Mahogany Chicken Legs are not your typical "dump and run" dish that give slow cookers a bad reputation. They require a little prep (in this case, about 10 minutes) but it is worth it.

Chunky Slow Cooker Chicken Tortellini "Noodle" Soup

Chicken noodle soup is SO MUCH BETTER with tortellini! 

You get the classic, heart and soul warming chicken noodle soup taste with the bonus of tender pillows of cheese wrapped in each bite of pasta.  I don't know if I've ever appreciated tortellini more.
