From a cookbook called "Best Loved Slow Cooker Recipes," this soup tastes very similar to French onion soup, but the cheese is mixed right in. I've had a little trouble in the past with the cheese and milk curdling, so I turn my slow cooker off and let the soup cool a little before adding. *Update Sept 22/06: Try adding a pound of smoked sausage and 2 diced potatoes for a heartier version.
My mother always made mulled cider during the fall and winter for any holiday gatherings. It makes the house smell wonderful. This version works best with good quality cider, but I have sometimes been forced to use grocery store jugs and it still tastes good. This will be highly spiced and has a bit of a citrusy tang from the lemons. Serving size will vary greatly depending upon the size of your crock.
This recipe was perfect for Thanksgiving! I made it before putting in the turkey, and family ate it for lunch. It is light and healthy. Great with crusty bread. The coconut milk gives it a touch of sweetness.
This is an amalgamation of a few mulled wine recipes and it turned out great! The easiest method is to substitute out the spices and zest for a pre-made tea bag of mulling spices (one tea bag per 16 ounces so this recipe would need about 3) but I've included the spices here in case that's not available. Any red wine will do but I think the merlot has a nice balanced flavor for this. The vermouth really adds a nice layer to the warmth and taste of this wine.
A tasty Mulled Apple Cider which can be served with or without Rum. I tweaked this over a few years to get it just so, and it's generally pretty popular at our holiday parties. (Halloween through Christmas) Plus it makes the house smell fantastic.
This is one of my favorite fall recipes. It is one of my mother's recipes. I love to make it for Thanksgiving and Christmas get togethers. It makes the house smell wonderful too. If you don't want the cider too sweet, you can leave out the brown sugar and it is still very good.
