Just like Mom’s? Well, sort of! Mary simplifies her mother’s recipe by using the slow cooker. We loved the addition of spaghetti sauce with the tomato soup and the fact that you don’t have to precook the cabbage in this fuss-free remake. —Mary Walker, Clermont, Florida
I especially like to use my slow cooker on hot summer days when I want to keep my kitchen cool. I’m always trying new recipes for different functions, but Stroganoff is a favorite I turn to again and again. - Roberta Menefee, Walcott, New York
“Marinated artichokes, celery and sweet green pepper are wonderful additions to this hearty spaghetti sauce. Don’t be afraid of leftovers—this tangy sauce is even better the next day.” —Aysha Schurman, Ammon, Idaho
What's nice about this recipe is that you can add any extras (like chopped bell peppers or sliced fresh mushrooms) to make your own specialty. I only get the best reviews when I serve this chili. - Ginny Puckett, Lutz, Florida
"This zesty ground beef and vegetable soup is flavorful and fast to fix," reports Lynnette Davis of Tullahoma, Tennessee. "It makes a complete meal when served with warm corn bread, sourdough bread or French bread."
“My husband grew up in Cincinnati, where chili is served over spaghetti, and I grew up in the South. This family-pleaser is a mingling of both worlds”…and a great way to make a meal go further. —Stephanie Rabbitt-Schappacher, West Chester, Ohio
To create this comforting casserole, I adapted a recipe from the cookbook that came with my first slow cooker. I love to serve this with fresh bread from my bread maker. - Joy Vincent, Newport, North Carolina
