It is only today, over a year since we rec'd it, have I started using it. Can't really say what took me so long. Not only does it make a great meal it makes leftovers too!! Yay lunch for two days!
I jumped in head first last weekend and made a beef brisket with carrots and potatoes. Yummmm. After that success I went out to the bookstore for a cookbook devoted to slow cookers. The Family Circle Slow Cooker Meals won. Its got great recipes in a fun categories like stews, main dishes, veggie and even desserts! The pictures are colorful and each recipe has nutritional info - two features I like in a cookbook.
Today I cooked Confetti Chicken Chili - cannelini beans, peppers, carrots, chicken and just the right amount of spices. My one mistake was chopping everything too small but otherwise it is delish!
I plan on using the slow cooker throughout the winter and cannot wait to try more recipes!
Pictures - I fear my camera cord is missing in action ugh
