Are you a die-hard slow-cooker fan? A slow-cooker appreciator? A person who wishes she put her slow-cooker to more regular use? However you slow-cook, hopefully these 5 recipes will make you happy.
Yes, many of us have come to love our Instant Pots. But my slow-cooker is bigger than my Instant Pot, and so when I’m cooking for a multitude or just making a big batch of something, I reach for my slow-cooker. One of my fondest cooking-for-a-crowd memories (and coincidentally one of my sons’ more embarrassing ones) was when I decided to lug my slow cooker full of Red Lentil, Fennel, and Chicken Slow Cooker Soup to a football game for the end-of-season game-side potluck on a particularly chilly day. It ended up becoming very popular. My boys loved the soup—they just weren’t too crazy about being the children of “that slow-cooker mom.” Though when a number of their friends happily dug right in and were generous with their praise, my sons grudgingly admitted that maybe it wasn’t such a ridiculous idea after all.
