#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

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
