The Cookstr Weekly: Slow Cookers for Easy Dinners

February 23, 2015

The slow cooker’s appeal is well earned as a tool for those who spend most of the day out of the house but still want to end the day with a home-cooked meal. Like a good no-knead bread recipe or a basic fermentation technique, a slow cooker is a secret weapon that allows time and nature to do the hard work for you.

A slow cooker can be an ideal partner in crime when it comes to tackling dishes that seem too time- and work-intensive for every day, such as French onion soup or risotto.  For more tips and tricks to make the most of your slow cooker meals, check out the Clever Cookstr podcast.

This pale vegetarian chili is both pretty to look at and delicious to eat. Add the cream cheese if you prefer a thicker, cheesier sauce, and the mild green chilies for a flavor boost. Serve with hot crusty bread and a salad of sliced tomatoes in vinaigrette for a great meal.” – Judith Finlayson

What’s New on Cookstr: Lemon Meringue Chia Pudding
  by Ayinde Howell and Zoe Eisenberg


I discovered chia seeds in 2011. I was looking for a new dessert to add to one of my menus for my “Wildflower Weekend” pop-up. I wanted to take it step further and make a cross between a yogurt and pudding. What would you call that? A yodding? A pugurt? I think it’s all in how you say it. Just elongate the u sound and use a French accent. Puugurrrtt. See? Fancy.

    The steel entire body of the auto is always worth one thing,

    This keeps these parts out of landfills and
    prevents other cars from being retired too early. In 2007, Flipswap put enough
    mobile phones back into circulation to keep the equivalent of 50 tons of solid waste out
    of US landfills. You can call your Attorney General’s office to find out the state of limitations in your own state.
