Slow-Cooker Week (It's Back)

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.
