Americans call them ‘crock pot’s’, we British know them to be ‘slow cookers’. Who cares about a few such differences when the object does the same thing in both countries?
I have just christened (okay, that’s a very non catholic statement… I should probably use the word, ‘baptised’) the slow cooker. I’ve had it for 6 weeks and haven’t had a day yet where I have been well enough prepared to use it! Today I was home and thought I’d give it a go, a hotch potch of veggies and chicken thighs resulted 5 hours later with a sumptuous chicken casserole…all that was missing were the yorkshire puddings (otherwise known as ‘batter puddings’), but within 5 minutes they were done too and we all sat down to a scrummy meal that had taken next to no effort to prepare.
Elena recently came up with a great way of accumulating more stock pot recipes; by paying a minimal fee you can have access to more than 200 downloadable recipes. Now that’s frugal living, if ever I heard of it!
Feel free to share your favourite recipes in the comments box below, I’d love to read them and better still, try them! Especially any chicken recipe, we eat loads of it 🙂
