Crock Pot Chicken & Brown Rice

Coning home from a road trip with a bad case of the GIs, and having not eaten anything in nearly 24 hours, I was finally in the mood for some real comfort food but did not want to spend any energy I didn’t have in a complicated, multi-step preparation.  What could be more comforting on

CInco de Mayo Pork Chops over Cilantro Rice

  Here’s a simple way to make tough thick-cut pork chops fork-tender with a Mexican flavor profile.  I needed to find a recipe for a couple of disappointing pork chops that I knew needed a long braising time.  It just happened to be Cinco de Mayo, and I put together this recipe based on several

Kitchen Tapestry: Crock Pot Chili

This recipe has been updated from the original version posted April 9, 2009.   For something so simple, with relatively few ingredients, chili con carne, or chili with meat, a.k.a. “chili,” has developed a whole lot of mystique, much of which I deem unwarranted. Chili cook-offs as originally created in the late sixties were more drunk-fests

Kitchen Tapestry: Red Beans & Rice

  Fat Tuesday is the final day of decadence and lack of restraint before buckling down and doing some serious atonement for your sins during Lent. It is the culmination of the season known as Mardi Gras.  Tomorrow, you’ll perhaps have ashes applied to your forehead and spend the next six weeks denying yourself of

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
