I'm a college student and one of the things I miss the most about school is my mom's wonderful cooking. I also miss her well-stocked kitchen! This slow cooker recipe is something I can make in my dorm on a busy Sunday. I just throw it all in the slow cooker before I leave for church and come back to piping hot homemade comfort food. The first bite of this chili almost always brings me to tears; it's so good to have a little piece of home while away. Be sure to serve with a good sprinkle of chedd
When I took these savory, slow-cooked appetizers to work, they were gone before I even got a bite! Spicy ketchup, vinegar, molasses and honey blend together in a tangy sauce that makes the wings lip-smacking good.

This easy entree is just five ingredients away! Sweet oranges and apricots blend perfectly with zippy salsa in this dish from LaDonna Reed of Ponca City, Oklahoma. Keep the heat to your liking with mild, medium or hot salsa.
Here's an all-time favorite Italian dish made easy in the slow cooker! Dried herbs and fresh garlic give it an aromatic flavor. Green peppers, sliced mushrooms and diced tomatoes do a fine job of rounding out the juicy chicken entree. —Denise Hollebeke, Penhold, Alberta
