If there is one thing that says home, it is the smell of food cooking in the kitchen. I am a stickler for homemade meals for my family. There are days when I count on my "helper" to assist with a slow cooked meal. Five years ago I bought my first Crock-Pot, I've been using it ever since.
Silver Palate's Chicken Marbella. I've tossed all the ingredients in the crock pot to cook on low. We'll be back in the early evening for a homecooked meal that required about twenty minutes of prep time this morning.
Here are some of the meals I like to prepare in my Crock-Pot:
A whole chicken with one teaspoon of butter and seasonings.
Italian sausage, fresh red peppers, green peppers, yellows peppers, sliced onions, olive oil and Italian seasoning.
Brisket with onions, one beef buoillon, a hint of water. It pulls apart into shredded pieces, my family devours!
All the fixings for a good pot of chili.
Ina Garten's beef bourguignon
Homemade million dollar meatballs. If you want the recipe, I'll share in comments.
And, the list goes on...
Do you own a slow cooker? Want to share some recipes? Here's to a house smelling like "home" when you open the door. Happy Monday!
