Go beyond chili and pot roast with recipes that almost make themselves.
Slow is the New Fast
Take a few minutes in the morning to toss in savory ingredients and, when you get home, a tasty meal will be ready. Whether
you're making a main dish, a sweet dessert, or even butter (yes, butter), it doesn't get much easier than this.
Slow-cooker Beef Tacos
Brown the meat in a Dutch oven, then let the slow-cooker work its magic as the rich spices meld. You can also serve the versatile,
tender beef over baked potatoes instead of in soft tortilla shells.Recipe: Slow-cooker Beef Tacos
Use a slow-cooker to keep the party going. The low setting keeps dishes like this festive fondue at the perfect temperature
until the last guest has gone home.Recipe: Beer-and-Cheddar Fondue
Slow-cookers make more than meaty dinner dishes. Make a sweet, rich apple butter spread that goes perfectly on a toasted English
muffin or served over pork chops. One taste and you'll never believe it's fat free.Recipe: Overnight Apple Butter
Mocha Pudding Cake
Make the ultimate dessert–a fudgy mix of cake and pudding–in two easy steps. Stir ingredients in a bowl, then add to the slow
cooker for about two hours. Dessert doesn't get much sweeter that that.Recipe: Mocha Pudding Cake
Grandma Dean's Chicken and Dressing
Plan a home-style dinner like grandma used to make with only 30 minutes of prep work. You'll come home to a house with smells
reminiscent of Sunday suppers with the family.Recipe: Grandma Dean's Chicken and Dressing
