Crock Pot New England Style Seafood Chowder

As with a low-carb version of a Bacon Chicken Chowder I posted earlier this year, the recipe presented herein meets the culinary definition of a chowder in that it consists of vegetables and protein in a creamy broth thickened with a roux (actually in this case, a slurry).  However, this is a far more traditional

Low Carb Bacon Chicken Crock Pot Chowder

In the strictest interpretation of culinary terms, a chowder is a classification of soup that contains large chunks of protein and vegetables in a cream-based broth.  In the northeast, hearty seafood and clam chowders with diced potatoes are common.  In the southwest, chowders are made with choirzo, chicken and very often, corn instead of potatoes. 

Swiss Steak in a Crock Pot

The great thing about the Internet is that there is a lot of information to choose from.  The bad thing about the Internet is there is a lot of misinformation to choose from.  Case in point here.  Search for a Swiss Steak recipe and you’ll find a very wide array of options, many of which

Boursin Macaroni & Cheese in a Crock Pot

This is a re-post of a Boursin Macaroni & Cheese recipe I did in 2016, but updated to accommodate a new methodology of cooking it that is infinitely easier, with thanks and recognition to My Number One Fan for having found it on the Damn Delicious website.  This is my recipe, however.  I give credit

Crock Pot Pork Roast

This recipe has some of the elements of other Pork Roast recipes I’ve posted, for which a repository of links can be found here.  But on this occasion, I wanted simple-simple-simple.  This version requires no browning of the roast beforehand, eliminating a lot of work.  As I have learned over the years, that step, required

Crock Pot Beef Stew

This kind of cooking doesn’t get any easier.  Simply put all these ingredients together in a crock pot, set it on “high” for six hours, and you’re good to go.  The secret to a delicious stew is in not using the cuts of beef typically sold at your grocery store as “stew meat.”  These are

Two Recipes with Sun Dried Tomatoes & Marinated Artichoke Hearts

My Number One Fan deserves all the credit for these two outstanding recipes.  She did them just a couple of weeks apart, which fascinated me.  To be able to take two really good ingredients and combine them in different ways and with different meats was just brilliant!  And delicious! In this post, you will get

Easy Crock-Pot Short Ribs

I did a Slow Cooked Beef Short Rib recipe which was modified from a recipe found on the Pioneer Woman website.  It was great, I stand by it, and I’ll make it again some day.  But not yesterday.  I just didn’t want the hassle of using three different cooking vessels to make short ribs.  I

Crock Pot Chicken & Wild Rice Soup

Did you know that most, though not all, of the wild rice sold in this country comes from the state of Minnesota?  Wild rice is in fact their state grain and a major cash crop.  Wild rice isn’t rice, but an aquatic cereal grain and has a delicious nutty flavor.  Minnesotans are famous for their

Crock Pot Asian Country Style Ribs

The country-style ribs that you see in the grocery store are in fact not ribs at all. Country-style ribs are cut from the blade end of the loin close to the pork shoulder. They are meatier than other rib cuts. They contain no rib bones, but instead may contain parts of the shoulder blade or

Chicken Enchilada Soup

My Number One Fan found this recipe on the Yummly recipe site, but altered it considerably to her tastes.  This is a hearty dinner soup which worked very well with some corn chips for dipping and a side of guacamole. The original recipe called for this soup to be served over Spanish rice, which she

Crock Pot Lasagna

I’ve had a lasagna recipe for years, but I seldom make it because it’s a time consuming dish that takes multiple steps and frankly, there are better things to do with leftover spaghetti sauce, like putting it over spaghetti again.  But if you have leftover spaghetti sauce, perhaps some you made using my recipe for
