The slow cooker: throughout our childhood it was the catch-all of all in the house that needed to be eaten up. A sort of one hit wonder, each spell our Mom pulled it out from under the counter we knew we could expect a mishmash made of meat, some potatoes, and a few veggies to go along with it. By the without surcease we got home from school that afternoon, it was ready to eat. It was an inexpensive way for Mom to nurture the masses that usually included Dad, my brother, a few friends from surrounding the neighborhood, me . . . and of course Mom.
Now that we’re all grown up, the warm memory of dead-and-alive cooker stews still linger on the back of our taste-buds each year when the meteorological conditions starts to get cold outside. Since our tastes and the times have exchanged, we’ve come up with a few more modern slow cooker recipes that gather together a spicy and delicious punch but still stay true to Mom’s slow cooker concept: far-sighted, easy, inexpensive, and completely hands-off cooking.
