#95: The Slow Cook Book - Heather Whinney


Whether you use an electric slow cooker or a more traditional oven or stove-top, slow cooking is a wonderful way to prepare wholesome, home-cooked food with the greatest of ease.
Celebrating slow cooking in all its forms, The Slow Cook Book includes 200 recipes ranging from typical slow-cook dishes-hearty, warming stews and pot roasts-to more surprising fare such as cakes.
Showing two methods of slow cooking for each recipe—one using an electric crock pot and the other using a combination of traditional pots, pans, stove-top, and oven—The Slow Cook Book demonstrates step-by-step techniques and provides everything you need to become a slow-cook expert.


MY OPINION:
I love using my slow cooker and it gets a workout at least a couple times a month in the summer, in the winter it's much more often. So I am always on the hunt for new and interesting recipes to try out.
I tried the Moroccan Chicken Baked with Spices, with a couscous side dish.
Man, was it ever good! The chicken fell apart from the bone, so you had to be careful, but with the tomatoes, spices and apricots, it was a nice sweeter flavor. Now don't think it was so sweet, it had 6 onions in it, along with salt to give it enough bitterness to balance it out. It really was a flavorful dish, so plain couscous with a little olive oil is all you needed extra.
Best part is, it was a hit with the hubby too. He's a picky one, especially with anything tomatoes, which is hilarious being he is Italian, but he found it quite enjoyable and even commented a couple of times with a mmmm.
I look forward to finding something else to try in it now, see how many more new things I can make and take myself out of my normal eating element.

5/5

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
