Slow Cooker Provençal Beef Stew

It’s that time of year when the cool Fall air starts blowing in, back-to-school, back-to-work, and after-school activities are now in full swing. This is when I get my slow-cooker back out onto the counter and into the weekly rotation of meal planning for my family. In searching for a new and delicious recipe, I…

Danielle Walker’s Slow-Cooker Buffalo Chicken

Delicious buffalo chicken that takes just like your favourite wings! The recipe is from Danielle Walker’s Meals Made Simple Cookbook and it is fantastic if you are a fan of “buffalo” chicken flavours.   The recipe is only found in the cookbook (which I highly recommend along with her first book Against all Grain), but here is my slightly adapted…

The Best Slow-Cooker Beef Stew

My slow-cooker is a lifesaver (and wifesaver, and momsaver!) through the winter and this is my favourite and our family’s proclaimed best slow-cooker beef stew. The recipe is from one of my faves – The Looneyspoons Collection Cookbook by Janet and Great Podleski, and it is perfect – melt in your mouth beef, and chunks of…

Slow-Cooker Honey Sesame Chicken

Slow-Cooker Spicy Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches & Nachos

This is another gem from Everyday Food. I have made this quite a few times since it was published one year ago, and it has become one of our slow-cooker favourites. It is a healthy twist on a pulled pork sandwich, except it is made with boneless, skinless chicken thighs and breasts. It is not…

Slow-Cooker Turkey and Three Bean Chili

This delicious chili recipe is one of our favourite cold weather meals through the fall and winter. My husband Andrew loves chili and I like trying to keep it healthy while keeping him happy.
