Everyone is Cooking with Slow Cookers Nowadays

November 19th, 2013 at 09:05 am

I was stunned to wake up this morning and see my Amish Garden slow-cooker cookbook climb up to #2 on both Best-Seller Lists. To be frank, I have not really done much promoting of this book since the cookbooks are a hobby, my real profession writing Amish Christian Romances.
I guess folks who normally don't use slow-cookers are jumping on board for quick, easy meals. Maybe it's the economy. I hope the newbies stay on board because the slow-cooker is such a good way to save money.

I finished the rest of my menu for the week.


Homemade pizza with extra cheese, mushrooms, olives

Leftover potato salad



Chicken Noodle Soup

Crackers and peanut butter





I have a quick version of chicken noodle soup if you are in a hurry like we were last night. I use two cans of chicken noodle soup, add 2 extra cans of water, a cup of wide egg noodles, 2 tablespoons chicken stock base (I like Spice Island), 1 teaspoon celery seed, 1/4 cup chopped parsley, 1 cup chopped baby carrots (we skipped these last night), and 1/2 teaspoon ground garlic.

Jessie was shocked it was semi-homemade.

    Love my crock pot. Turns a bunch of left overs and limp veggies into hot, fragrant, welcome home soup since driving in these snow storms are so nerve wrecking. In summer it magically turns a bunch of cheap root veggies and cut of meat plus flavoured liquid into dinner while I was out. If I plug it into the outlet on the balcony can support anything grilled on the BBQ. Best of all, the house stays cooler since we have NO AC.

    I own 4 Crockpots, all different sizes. I have used one for many years and find it a money and time saver. Glad your cookbook is taking off!
