I found this recipe for a Caribbean beef stew for the slow cooker and thought that it looked pretty yummy. However I didn’t have all the ingredients this morning and wasn’t dressed when I was doing the cooking, so I was not going down town to buy them. So I tweaked the recipe to the ingredients that I had! But it turned out quite well… More

Mince and dumplings, yum yum.
This has to be one of my all time favourite foods, it is something my mum made when I was a child, and I have always loved it, especially when it is wet and cold. Just like it was yesterday.
This time however I decided to do it in the slow cooker, and it was yummy! Luckily we found a bigger slow cooker at the weekend, so we can now do the whole dish in the slow cooker! So it was easy.
It was such a hit that Baba had two helpings, so too me that is a hit! For such a hit I just had to share it with you all. More

So Saturday I used my slow cooker again and this time convinced Mr L that we had to buy a bigger slow cooker, due to not being able to fit the potatoes in with the recipe. I have to say I was really surprised that he agreed to it so easily, thought that there would be more of a fight but he was happy to get another one. He can see the benefits of having a slow cooker now that we have used it successfully a couple of times.
This time we made beef stew and it was lovely. I adapted a recipe that I had seen for slow cooker stew and I am glad that I did, it was really nice. More

So today for the first time ever, I got out the slow cooker that my sister gave me and we tried it out.
I had no clue what to do with it, so of course I chose the place where everyone knows the answer to everything, Twitter. I vaguely remembered that The Moiderer had some slow cooker recipes on her blog, so I tweeted her and I was right. She told me to click on the picture of the slow cooker to get some recipes. So off I trotted and there are some lovely recipes on there. Lots that I want to try. More
