Hello!

I was chatting with my very kind friend the other day saying I have always wanted a slow cooker as everyone seems to have one and rave about how great they are. She said she has one bit does not use it. Then she came over for a cup of tea this week and brought me her slow cooker and said she never uses it and would like me to have it as she felt I would use it. So kind. Anyway I cooked a very nice beef goulash last night but the kids did not like it as they are not a fan of casseroles and stews. I was wondering can anyone recommend a recipe or book to buy for the slow cooker with nice kid friendly recipes. I did look on taste.com where i get a lot of recipes from usually and there was not much choice and nothing had 5 stars. thanks.

  • Just google ‘Slow Cooker recipe Books’ and you’ll see a heap to choose from. Then go for ‘family friendly’ and you should have heaps.
    I loved our slow cooker. Great for working mum’s. you can put it on in the morning and then it’s ready for when you get home. Great for stews and casseroles but also for roasts.

  • I don’t really know the benefits of a slow cooker , yet I am surrounded by people who use them . They cook stews and congee in them , make it in the evenings , turn it on and have it ready next morning . I said isn’t that wasting electricity ??

  • If they prefer ‘curry’ style meals then this might be the place to start. For example butter chicken or lamb korma. A google search will bring up some slow cooker adapted recipes. Generally you add about half the liquid for a slow cooker than you would for a dish cooked on the stove. Enjoy!
