America's Best Slow Cooker Recipes
Imagine coming home from a long, tiring work day only to find a delicious aromatic stew waiting for you. Or enjoying a day on the slopes and arriving to find mulled red wine already prepared and simply waiting to be poured and savored. By using a timesaving slow cooker, you can have a hot meal or warm drink ready and waiting when you are, without any fuss.
In the last five years, slow cookers have enjoyed a huge increase in popularity. By simmering food at a constant low temperature, slow cookers create food that enjoys a flavor and texture not normally found in stovetop or oven cooking. Ingredients need only be prepared in advance, then tossed into a slow cooker and the results are an easily prepared but satisfying meal.
