This is an adaptation of a recipe originally published in "I Like Food, Food Tastes Good: In the Kitchen with Your Favorite Bands". It's a delicious curried lentil and cauliflower soup that's filling and incredibly nutritious, and it keeps beautifully for days! You can even make it ahead and freeze it.

This method creates a very moist flavorful turkey breast, the low slow cooking will create juice if you want more juice just add in a can of low-sodium chicken broth undiluted although you really don't need to --- do not add in any extra salt the onion soup mix is salty enough --- for best flavor I recommend not to use previously frozen then thawed turkey breast, use fresh if possible, since every crock pot cooks differently the cooking time is only estimated, a bone-in breast will need slightly longer to cook --- see my recipe#145064
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 soup is what I make for my family every Christmas Eve. I love using the crock pot, especially during the holidays. To cut down on time, I always use frozen hash browns- (diced, not shredded) for the 6 cups of potatoes. I've also added cheddar cheese along with the Velveeta cheese.This soup is delicious served in bread bowls.
It's nice to have some refried beans you can pull out of the freezer for a side with your Mexican meals without opening a can with all the extra fat. One side serving is 1/2 cup, which also makes about 4 tacos or burritos These are a great side dish, may also be used for burritos, and can be served as a main dish with plenty of shredded cheddar and salsa on top. Take the time and make these ahead. You won't be sorry!
I don't remember where I got this recipe, but it has become one of our favorites. You can cover any leftover potatoes and refrigerate or freeze. Reheat quickly in the microwave, adding a little milk for desired consistency.
Lots of vegetables gives this sauce a meat sauce look but isn't. I had friends come over while it was cooking and taste it a thought it was a meat sauce. I great way to get a variety of vegetables into your family without the I don't like that veggie! This freezes well so you can divide into freezer bags for future use (if it lasts). Use on pasta, in stew, bean dishes, top a pizza, or in soups. This can make this on your stove top as well.
I love the texture of steel cut oats. You can make this the night before and breakfast is ready in the morning. I like fruit additions, but my kids do not, so I've listed them as optional. Also, it may sound like a lot of water, but trust me, I've experimented..
This is a recipe that I adapted. This recipe was printed in the cookbook that came with my crock pot over 25 years ago. The serving size is approximate. The number of servings depends on if you are serving this as a side or a main dish.
