#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

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would

#Win 1917 (US/CDN)

AVAILABLE MARCH 24! RATED R 119 minutes AMAZON April 1917, the Western Front. Two British soldiers are sent to deliver an urgent message to an isolated regiment. If the message is not received in time the regiment will walk into a trap and be massacred. To get to the regiment they will need to cross through enemy territory. Time is of the essence and the journey will be fraught with danger. Starring Colin Firth. REVIEW: So it wasn't the best war movie I've ever seen, but it was still good. The cinematography is amazing! So rich and with so much detail. The story is just okay though. Two soliders sent to stop the front lines from walking into a trap. Not that interesting and often predictable. A few yelling at the screen moments happened, not gonna lie. How it was all brought together, mixed with a tug on the emotional heart strings is what is makes it good. Watched it with the hubby. He was engaged throughout, so that was good. He's n
