Using a slow-cooker or crockpot is the perfect choice for winter cooking. While you go about your day, your home gradually fills with wonderful aromas of beef, chicken, and herbs. Yum!
Comfort foods are rich, filling, easy to make and eat, and delicious. Make them in your slow cooker and you have some sure-fire winners! These methods cook your recipes to perfection, and you hardly have to do a thing.
But be sure you follow basic rules. Fill the appliance 1/2 to 2/3 (some say 3/4) full, cook as long as the recipe directs, layer foods starting with hard root vegetables and ending with meat and tender ingredients, and don't lift the lid while the food is cooking.
We've got the best answer to that age-old question "What's for Supper"?
