Fun Fact Friday

Cooking / Eating In

Happy First Friday of 2012, Noshers!  Any fun plans this weekend?

This week’s Fun Fact provides a bit of foreshadowing (Ooooh) of one of next week’s posts:

Just one of the many things you can make in a slow cooker – ribs!

January is National Slow Cooking Month.

Tune in next week, when I share one of my favorite slow cooker recipes! Have a great weekend!

Do you have a slow cooker? What’s your favorite slow cooker recipe?

    We’ve had a slow cooker for awhile, but just got a timer for it so that it can click off during the day when we’re not home! We like to make Indian food, like dahl and cholay. Yum!

      That sounds amazing! I’ve never made Indian food in my slow cooker before – any recipes to share? 🙂

    I LOVE cooking with my slow cooker!! Nothing better than coming home to a heavenly scent of dinner being ready after a long day at work.

    Adult Slopping Joes from America’s Test Kitchen. Or maybe they are called Spicy or Chipotle Sloppy Joes. Whatever they are called, they are delicious

    I wish I had a slow cooker! I wonder if people have those in China. 🙂 I’ve never used one before. You should post recipes every week in Jan!

    This weekend…. going out in Shanghai for delicious food of course. 😉

    I haven’t had much success with my slow cooker, but maybe your recipe will break the streak. i’ve mostly made so-so chili, and blah chicken stew.
