As I sit here in the middle of the desert of the South West United States, it’s chilly and snowing and my mind wanders to slow cooked dishes that warm the body and soul. Soups, Stews, Braised Meats and Vegetables, huge pots of Chili Basically what we’re talking about here is, foods left to cook for a long time, be it on the back burner of your stovetop or in a Slow Cooker aka Crock Pot®. (I own this model) This is an old-is-new cooking trend, especially cozy now in the Northern hemisphere; a way to make a cheaper cut of meat or those gnarly bits of leftover this-or-that, delicious. I saw a recipe the other day for some sort of dessert, can’t remember what it was, but it was made in a Slow Cooker, REALLY, I mean COME ON MAN! That lingering aroma wafting through the house, it’s even been known to keep me up at night, as I’ve left the Crock going for more than a day. This is my favorite time of the year to cook! I’m a visual type of individual; I like to see photos, especially of scrumptious dishes. So if you can, please, include some pictures of your creation.
