“I modified a favorite dish for slow cooker ease. It’s moist and tender each time and perfectly complemented by the white wine gravy. It’s best with drinking wine, not cooking wine.” —Tina MacKissock, Manchester, New Hampshire
Like many of you, I always serve turkey for our family's Thanksgiving meal. But instead of roasting a whole bird, I opt for a turkey breast since most of us prefer white meat. The herb butter basting sauce keeps it so moist, and it's easy to carve.

This turkey recipe is best with fresh pineapple, however, on particularly busy days, I have used canned pineapple tidbits in an effort to speed preparation even more. My family enjoys this recipe several times a year. It's good on the grill, too. —Holly Bauer, West Bend, Wisconsin
"When we were first married, I didn't have an oven, so I made this tender turkey in the slow cooker," recalls Myra Innes of Auburn, Kansas. "These days, I rely on this recipe because it frees up the oven to make other dishes for large get-togethers."
My mom made this stew when I was young, and it was always a hit. Since it's not time-consuming to make I can fix it on a weekend for our children, who love the tender dumplings. —Becky Mohr of Appleton, Wisconsin
