Everyone could use a few simple recipes for the slow cooker, for those busy times, including us. When it comes to using the slow cooker, my dear husband is much better at it, than I. The reason? He is much more relaxed in the kitchen.
He will scan a cookbook for a recipe that catches his eye and make it, as instructed. I love those dinners! This recipe allows for creative interpretation with suggestions for ingredients to swap in specific categories, which appeals to my creative side.
