So, I have a love-hate relationship with my slow cooker. The love part is that it cooks for me. I mean, c'mon: that's pretty awesome. The hate part is that it's hard to find great slow cooker recipes. Having developed a few over the years, I know they can be tricky. It's all too easy to end up with a soupy mess, anemic meat, or greasy slop.
Okay, I'm being a little dramatic with greasy slop, but you know what I mean, right? That slick of fat from meat that's been cooked for hours. Not cute.
When I started working with clients, one of the challenges that I posed to myself was to find a great resource for slow cooker recipes. I thought that maybe I just hadn't looked hard enough and being proactive would make the difference. I thought wrong. The challenge proved to be harder than expected. Until now.
