Slow Cooker Barbacoa

Slow Cooker Barbacoa

My favorite thing to eat when we order at Chipotle is their barbacoa. I love their flavorful shredded beef. I’m thrilled to be able to make it at home, with hardly any work! Never had barbacoa before? You’re missing out, and we can fix that…

Slow Cooker Bean and Bacon Soup

Slow Cooker Bean and Bacon Soup

I’ve attempted many white bean soups in the past, but none so delicious as this Bean and Bacon Soup. I look forward to eating it and its leftovers, something I can say about none of the other bean soups I made in the past. It…

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…

319: Overnight Apple Butter

319: Overnight Apple Butter

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…
