So I think by now you know I looove kitchen gadgets – sieve? Sweet! Silpat? Sign me up. One appliance that I had been neglecting was my brandy-new slow cooker. There it was on the top shelf of the kitchen cabinet, woefully biding its time. My feelings towards it were four-fold:
1. I LOVE kitchen gadgets.
2. But I don’t know what to cook in a slow cooker.
3. Well, I can learn.
4. But it takes up space. (My motto for 2011 – no appliances that make only one thing! Ok, no more appliances that make only one thing)
In the end, Points 1 and 3 won out, especially after I saw my friend Cathy’s recipe for Chile Verde. I followed her recipe to the word except for some toppings at the end and some creative ingredient substitution.
