I love this recipe because I can prepare the veggies the night before and, in the morning, brown the chicken and assemble everything in the slow cooker before I go to church. I can spend time with my family while Sunday dinner cooks.—Diane Halferty, Corpus Christi, Texas
Meet the Cook: You could call me a "recipe tinkerer". It's fun to take a recipe, substitute ingredients, add seasonings to spice it up and make the final result my own!

Meet the Cook: With our supply of homegrown beef, I'm always searching for new ideas on how to cook it. That's the way I came to invent this dish. Everyone loves it!
My husband and I have three children, all of them now grown.

I remember my mother often making this soup for Saturday night supper. During the war years, she would cook a lot of stews and soups - she'd start with a big kettle of chicken stock, and it was amazing what she could make!
Even though I didn't like spinach much, I liked this soup. I loved to help Mom in the kitchen, and was cooking by myself when I was 10.
Cooking has been one of my hobbies, along with sewing and crafting, ever since. I've even won several recipe contests.
This soup has a great southwestern flavor and is a real winner with my family. I love it because I can have the soup cooking in my crock pot, and when I get home from work, I can quickly make the dumplings and fix dinner in a jiffy.
These moist dumplings are an extra-special way to serve potatoes. The bread centers add a comforting touch, and the potato taste really comes through. They go so well with the Beef Rouladen and gravy.
