Crockpot

Barbecue Pulled Pork in the Slow Cooker

My husband Al, who doesn’t like anything barbecue… And, don’t get me started about Al and hot spices… He surprised the “bejeebers” out of me. I’ll tell you more about Al in a moment. But first…

… First, let me explain that I was going to be out of the house all day and I needed something that I could make that was yummy as well as really easy. Pulled barbecued pork seemed like just the thing because I could dump it in my crock pot and leave it to cook slowly all day while I was away “taking care of business.”

I had some pork loin roast in the ‘fridge that was just begging to be used. So, before I left the house yesterday, I grabbed the roast, put it in the crock pot, bones and all, added enough water so it wouldn’t boil away in the next 10 or so hours and the necessary barbecue “stuff.”

Now, back to Al…

Easy Yellow Split Pea Soup in the Slow Cooker

This winter we’ve been adding more color and flavor to our meals by making our own soups, just like this Yellow Split Pea Soup. It’s so attractive with its yellow color, especially with some fresh parsley to top it.

Some recipes include a ham bone with split peas, but I think yellow split peas have enough flavor on their own that a good stock is sufficient to make a satisfying soup. In the slow cooker, with your favorite stock, this makes a filling dish, suitable for lunch or a light supper. This could easily be vegetarian or vegan by using your favorite vegetable stock.

Crock Pot Beef Stew – Gluten-Free

This wonderful crock pot beef stew is a gluten-free recipe that my family absolutely loves! Succulent green beans, carrots and potatoes join forces to create this classic family favorite. My husband especially loves this stew and asks for it frequently.

In fact, my family would be happy if I cooked beef stew every week or two. It’s a perennial favorite.

If you cook for someone who likes to have “old favorites,” you might enjoy making a classic meal of beef stew. In a crockpot, it’s a one-dish meal that can be waiting for you in the evening with no more preparation needed.

Crockpot Split Pea Soup with Carrots, Celery, Onion and Ham

I really love split pea soup in my gluten-free diet … It’s high-fiber, has no refined sugar and is highly nutritious. And, my husband likes it even more than I do. He thinks that it tastes great and frequently comes back for seconds.

Actually, this is one of my all-time favorite gluten-free soup recipes. It takes only a minute or two to remove the foreign matter from the bag of split peas. It cooks almost on auto pilot.

It makes 6 to 8 servings with a very small time investment.
