This recipe was given to me by my Mother-in-law who raised 9 children and taught school for 40 years and didn't have much time to cook. It remains a family favorite with my children. Last night I had no broth, so I mixed Lipton's Garlic and Herb soup (1 packet) and 4 cups of water and it was wonderful, really added richness to the broth.
This is a chowder that uses ingredients that I almost always have on hand, so it is quick and easy to throw together before work, and come home to on a nice fall evening. Relatively easy to double as well for extra large families or get togethers.
Easy peasy recipe adapted from A Year of Slow Cooking. After looking through the reviews at her blog, I see that cooks who used a 6.5 quart crock pot had problems with this cooking too much. My crock pot is a 4 quart size and I have not experienced that problem. I do think the stirring is a good suggestion and have changed the directions accordingly. You could use any sausage you want but the sausage does need to be partially cooked or smoked. Try chicken with artichokes, chicken with apple, kielbaska, Italian, andouille, or whatever sausage your family enjoys. This uses LEFTOVER rice so plan for that. I love leftovers. :) This could be gluten free if you are very careful with your choice of sausage.
This was a big winner in our work pot lucks,I was requested to bring it all the time and its easy easy to throw in a crock pot also. It may not be an Authentic Maidrite...but everyone who has tried them seem to agree they are pretty darn good.
My own recipe, inspired by a recipe on here for cranberry brisket. You can use canned whole-berry cranberry sauce, but the fresh is much nicer. If using orange juice and orange zest, leave out the apples.
DH hates tamales and I love them. I'm posting several recipes so that when he's out of town I can go on a tamale binge and know where to find the recipes! You can use either chicken or beef tamales for this. This one is from The Best Slow Cooker Cookbook Ever by Natalie Haughton.
Easy recipe for a weeknight meal. Throw everything in crock pot in the morning and your meal's ready when you arrive home from work or school. Serve with hot cooked rice; tossed salad on the side. Source unknown. Vegetarian friendly! *Update* February 2009: I used this recipe: Recipe #100408 to replace the ham.
This is an easy recipe that can be used as a dip, burrito filling, or entree. It has everything you need for filling and healthy meal, it's just your choice how you eat it. :) I hope you enjoy it cause I just love it.
This is a staple in our house. Serve it with tortillas, quesadillas, or tortilla chips and it's dinner! I usually assemble it the night before, stash it in the fridge and plug it in before I leave for work. My husband spices it up with hot sauce, but for my daughter and I, it's good as is. It's another recipe someone shared at a school potluck lunch :) Oh, and I'm totally guessing on the servings...
