Teriyaki chicken: I didn't use the pineapple at all. I misread the recipe and thought it only called for c. honey so when I realized I also had to use c. brown sugar I knew there would be a problem. It was SO sweet. Definitely won't be making this again.
Crockpot Cheese Tortellini and Sausage- I used 1 can low sodium chicken broth so it wasn't too soupy and 2 bags of tortellini (1 large cheap cheese one and 1 fancy buitoni meat one). The tortellini was too soft, so I would not add it in until the last hour or 2 next time. Also, that's when I would add in the cream cheese, but I'm not sure if it even needs it if you decide to use a tomato sauce instead.
