{Slow Cooker} Mongolian Beef

This is another one of those CanadiAsian recipes I love. It makes a rich, dark sauce — not too sour or too spicy, compared to the Honey Balsamic Pulled Pork or the Sweet & Spicy Coconut Grilled Chicken. The flavours are a lot more subtle in this dish. I love using my slow cooker for […]

Slow Cooker Creamy Tomato Soup

I see all kinds of recipes on Pinterest showing parents how to sneak more vegetables into their kids’ food. I pin those kinds of recipes for myself. I hate vegetables. I mean, I’m okay with potatoes. Corn. Cooked carrots and peas are tolerable. But aside from that? No. Way. Because of this I was always […]
