Since my own blog seemed to get overwhelmed with sweet things this week, I thought I should make up for it here. So I am sharing some nonsweet recipes and ideas from my travels around the blogsphere this week. First, more recipes to make with my slow cooker.
Hugs and Punches
An oriental-inspired dish for the slow cooker. This one goes to the top of my "recipes to make with my slow cooker" list.
The Frugal Farm Wife
Another oriental-inspired recipe, and pork is one meat that I have been happy with when cooked in a slow cooker. Another recipe going to the top of the list.
Chef in Training
Just 4 simple ingredients and a slow cooker. I am not sure that it could get easier than this. Maple and mustard are a great flavor combination.
Soups are a mainstay for the lunches we have at our house so I am always looking for new recipes to try.
Learning the Ropes One Recipe at a Time
At one time, I would not have used steak to make soup, but since ground beef is now as expensive to purchase as round steak, I think I will give this one a try. It looks delicious and healthy.
Stella B's Kitchen
This is a meatless version which I want to try. I have made a version with ground beef which we like a lot.
Kalyn shows an easy method of making minced garlic and freezing it. The defrosted garlic can be kept in the refrigerator up to a week.
I am not sure that I have ever had Red Robin Seasoning, but I love to find new homemade seasoning mix ideas. The dried tomato powder may be a little hard to find. I may try tomato bouillon which I can get in the Hispanic section of my grocery store and leave out the salt and see what happens.
