What do I have for you this week? It's a piece of kitchen equipment that I have absolutely fallen in love with over the past two years - A SLOW COOKER!
Now, I'm not one of those people who likes to cook everything in a slow cooker. In fact, I think most things shouldn't be cooked in one, but there are a few things that it does very, very well. Anytime something requires a long, slow cooking process, the slow cooker is your pal. You can literally "set it and forget it." I love making slow cooked meats, like pulled pork or the infamous taco chicken bowls, but it's also great for beans or slow cooked sauces. Just being able to stock your freezer with freshly cooked beans instead of having to buy canned beans makes this appliance well worth it's weight in gold.
If you haven't started experimenting with a slow cooker yet, I hope this inspires you to!
Giveaway #2 - 6 Quart Crock-Pot Slow Cooker
This week's contest entry question is:
What is your go-to comfort food when you're feeling under the weather?
After having too much fun this past weekend, my throat decided to swell up to the size of a soft ball (or so it felt) and all I want is some Super Ramen Bowls. Or, if I wasn't so exhausted, I'd go get myself a bowl of pho. So, those are my two sickness soother foods, what are yours?
