Slow-Cooker corn and fish Chowder

Finally. A recipe interesting enough to share. I planned to tell you how I'm feeling all better now but then I managed to jam my lower back rolling out off bed. How pathetic is that? Now I need help putting  my socks on. So romantic. No wonder my poor husband falls all over himself trying… Continue reading Slow-Cooker corn and fish Chowder

Slow cooker Lentil Dahl

I swear I do not own Fenugreek, Kaffir lime leaves, green Cardamom, black cumin seeds or any other substance you need wikipedia's  help to spell out. What I do own as of last week is an easy-peasy (lentils are so hard to rhyme) lentil dahl (inspired, I have no claim of authenticity) dish that cooks itself… Continue reading Slow cooker Lentil Dahl

My palate… Continue reading Morrocan inspired meatballs with tomatoes, olives and lemon

Whatever it may be, I long for simple, good dishes that warm you from the inside out. My grandmother passed away recently, at the advanced age… Continue reading Grandma’s braised chicken

Slow cooker Hungarian beef stew

My theory about slow cookers is that they are supposed to work for me and not vice versa. Chopping, browning, draining and cleaning BEFORE placing your ingredients in the slow cooker just doesn't make any sense to me. I might as well leave the dish in its original pot and end up with less dishes. The… Continue reading Slow cooker Hungarian beef stew
