Slow Cooker Recipes
Are you ready to give cooking in a slow cooker a try? It’s a great way to prepare healthy recipes for your family without having to spend hours in the kitchen stirring pots. Make a pot of beef stew that tastes like you’ve slaved for hours over the stove, when all it really took was dumping a few ingredients in your slow cooker and turning it on. And since you’re only using one pot for your slow cooker recipes, clean-up is a breeze as well….
Just when I think I am ready to kick meat to the curb, along comes one of those healthy recipes like this apricot chicken that makes me forget all of that. Hubba what? I’m not giving up meat! Are you crazy?! This dish was soooo easy and simple and I will definitely make it again. Like, a lot. I found a recipe that called for lots of packaged stuff but I went natural and it still came out so good and all the dirty dishes were clean before they went into the dishwasher it was so good (this is the more energy-efficient way to wash dishes).

For years I have been learning to use a pressure cooker to make all the Moroccan recipes I learn from my sisters-and mother-in-law and was always hesitant about switching over to a slow cooker. But this Amazing Giveaway for THREE Mother’s Day slow cookers has me thinking that it may actually be a really great thing to just throw everything in the pot in the morning. I could have a yummy, fragrant dish at dinner time without the end-of-day rush. There are so many slow cooker recipes but I really love Moroccan food for it’s natural ingredients and health-improving spices. Oh, there are cans in my cupboard, but they are dwindling, and are mostly for beans in a pinch or soup.
