My slow cooker is my secret weapon in the kitchen. Which is why I am surprised I only have three new slow cooker recipes this year. I definitely used my slow cooker more than three times but I only made three new things.
Slow Cooker Spicy Tuscan Ragu was probably my favorite new recipe this year. I made a less spicy version right before Christmas when the auntlings were visiting. They loved it as much as I did.
Slow Cooker Chicken Spinach and Orzo Soup takes almost no time to prepare and is filling without being heavy.
Slow Cooker Lemon Herb Chicken was inspired by a sample of a heat and serve dish from a warehouse club. The oldest auntling looked at me and said, “Mimi, you need to make this for me.” This wasn’t an exact duplicate but still very yummy.
