Slow Cooker Spicy Pork with Sweet Potato and Squash

And this is one of my favorite recipes for the slow cooker: Slow Cooked Spicy Pork with Sweet Potato and Butternut Squash. I love pork and I don’t make it half as much as I should. I find cooking pork in the oven is a tricky thing – it’s either raw or dry and there’s…

Slow Cooker Italian Sausage Soup

So today when I’m not feeling so hot, my first thought is always chicken soup. But I call this slow cooker Italian sausage soup my “postmodern chicken soup” because it is chicken soup, kicked up about ten levels. A big part of my grandma’s chicken soup was noodles. Of course, I eat Paleo, so drop…

Spicy Texas Slow Cooker Chili

If you’ve read even a few of my recipes, by now you know why I love honey over regular white or brown sugar. But in case you’re a newbie, let me introduce you to your new sweetener: honey. Go with the raw, organic kind and you’ll not only be getting a seriously sweet sweetener, but…

Slow Cooker Beef and Cabbage Stew

Summer is my favorite season. I like it hot. Really hot. But I don’t exactly live in a climate that gives me summer year round – or even most of the year. I live in a place where fall comes suddenly and before you know it, the days are darker than they were and you…

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff with Zucchini Noodles

Although the original Stroganoff recipe was beef, the chicken version is pretty popular today and it lets you cut down on the fat while retaining the protein and flavor. And really, the slow cooker is the best way…

Slow Cooker Chicken and Gravy

Fall always makes me want to create rich, hearty, warming dishes. The kind that cook for hours and make the house smell wonderful. Thick soups and meaty stews have always been my favorite and every time I bake a chicken, I make homemade chicken soup from the leftovers: simple and infinitely better than the canned…

Slow Cooker Coq au Vin

There are two important keys to unlocking the rich, wonderful flavor of Coq au Vin. The first is that you must brown the chicken before adding everything else. Browning the chicken – or browning anything for that matter – is a process called the “Maillard reaction,” named after the guy that discovered it. I won’t…

Wholesome Crock Pot Beef Stew

Nothing quite beats the slow cooker when you want a delicious meal that you don’t have to babysit. This stew cooks for four hours but takes only ten minutes of your time to assemble the ingredients and place them into the cooker. Because of its unique prep time and cooking duration you can have this…

Spicy Slow Cooker Orange Chicken Drumsticks

Orange chicken is not usually prepared with healthy ingredients. The Asian-inspired dish is one of my favorite comfort foods, so I went looking for an alternative method to prepare it. Drumsticks are definitely allowed on the Paleo diet, it was just a matter of finding more nutritious toppings. In this recipe we avoid any kind…
