Slow Cooker Baked Beans

Slow Cooker Baked Beans

I’ve tried a few different recipes for baked beans in the past. They were all disappointing – mainly, they had no flavor. Another gripe that I had – so many traditional recipes for baked beans go in the oven. Sure, they are baked beans, and that’s fine […]

Slow Cooker Chicken Chili

Slow Cooker Chicken Chili

Cooking is much easier with a one-year old than it was with a baby. It got better when she was able to sit upright and play with toys or watch me from her high chair. Now that she can toddle into and out of the […]

Pepper Pork Chops

Pepper Pork Chops

In December I tried Alton Brown’s Pepper Pork Chops in the slow cooker. I liked them (a fair amount, in fact) but never got around to writing about them, unfortunately. Now that it’s January and I feel lacking in inspiration, I thought I would give […]

Slow Cooker Applesauce

Slow Cooker Applesauce

I know I’m not alone in buying produce and not being able to eat it all while it’s still perfect. Recently, I have been notoriously bad for buying bags of apples – with every intention of eating them regularly – and letting them languish in […]

337: Southwestern Bean and Barley Soup

Southwestern Bean and Barley Soup was a part of a recipe section from Eating Well magazine on food gifts that you could make. Before I made the soup mix to give to other people, I had to try it myself. The soup mix was simple […]

I like making apple butter about once a year, so I decided to try the recipe for Overnight Apple Butter. It was a Cooking Light recipe, but I had some qualms about the quantity of sugar and honey that went into it. I generally like […]

269: Slow Cooker Moroccan Brisket with Red Onions and Apricots

With my final piece of brisket, I made Slow Cooker Moroccan Brisket with Red Onions and Apricots. It sounded different, and potentially good. I bought a red onion and parsnips to put in this dish. The night before I made this, I prepared the vegetables […]

265: Southwestern Pulled Brisket

265: Southwestern Pulled Brisket

With my 3-pound piece of brisket, I decided to make Southwestern Pulled Brisket. As I started to get this ready, I was disappointed to see that the instructions didn’t tell me to just toss everything in the crockpot. First you sear the brisket in a […]

264: Slow Cooker Barbecue Brisket

264: Slow Cooker Barbecue Brisket

I bought a brisket at the Meat Salesroom, and wasn’t sure what to do with it except that I knew I wanted to put it in the slow cooker. In the course of looking up recipes, I came across not one but three that I […]

24: Fragrant Chicken Curry

24: Fragrant Chicken Curry

I love using my crockpot, particularly on Mondays when I get home a little late, and just don’t want to cook because it’s a Monday. It means I have to get up a little earlier to make sure I get food in there, but it […]
