Have I got a treat for you. It's been a few years since I did a Slow-Cooker Week, but I've recommitted to beefing up my slow-cooker repertoire, and I finally - FINALLY! - have seven good ones to share. It takes awhile, you know?
I really think any time of year is perfect for slow cookers. Summer, because they don't overheat your kitchen. Fall and winter, because they often produce warm, meaty, stew-like comfort food. Spring, because the weather is great and we want to spend all our time outside, not slaving over dinner. I just love my slow cooker.
Which is not to say everything it makes is good. There are way too many mediocre and bad crockpot recipes. But I think you'll be really pleased with this week's findings. Sorry vegetarians, this week I've got 4 chicken, 1 beef and 2 pork recipes. (But just sub in some veggies and you're good.) I've got Thai, Chinese, Italian, BBQ, Mexican, and more.
It's a good week for slow cooking. I don't know why. Maybe because I am going OUT OF TOWN, which almost NEVER happens, and I just feel like having posts go up while I'm gone. Whatever, enjoy.
