Slow Cooker Thai Chicken Thighs

I’m keeping things really chill this busy time of the year. Simple recipes like this 2 ingredient slow cooker Thai chicken thighs helps me get things done and family fed not with cookies. On Monday morning I literally was shopping Cyber Monday deals while browning chicken. That is one ingredient. Another one I already had in a fridge – my Thai sweet chili sauce. It just never fails me. Just like my slow cooker. The only sweet deal I scooped up on a Cyber Monday was the boys’ Christmas PJs….

Slow Cooker Porcupine Meatballs with Brown Rice

My Monday morning was unrolling so lovely. I was looking forward to working on these slow cooker porcupine meatballs post after posting my first ever What I Ate Weekend post. Kids were up early due to a time change. No rain. Laundry in. Lovely. Everything was going lovely. I even texted Alex how lovely our weekend was (we even started a 1000 piece puzzle which I think I’m the only one excited about, girls vs. boys) and how blessed we are. Amen. A beeping noise from upstairs and our…

Slow Cooker Stuffed Pepper Casserole

I didn’t think stuffed pepper casserole cooked in a slow cooker for hours could be possible. I just didn’t know what would happen to the brown rice. But I got so many questions on my lazy man cabbage rolls recipe from readers asking if it can be cooked in a slow cooker that I had to try. I will attempt the lazy cabbage rolls in a slow cooker one day but for now I was craving unstuffed bell peppers casserole. In a sense, both dishes are similar – meat,…

Slow Cooker Balsamic Pot Roast

I did not have a pot roast recipe on iFOODreal until now because I never cooked one. For a million reasons. The biggest one because it seems such an Americanized recipe with an onion soup mix or whatever that is (you got me) that is against my clean eating religion. Then I rarely buy beef because my mom has been supplying us with venison. Venison needs special extra care so I didn’t want to mislead anyone saying recipe will work with beef. Well, it would definitely work but how…

Easy Green Lentil Curry

This green lentil curry made with green lentils, coconut milk, tomato paste and spices is an old-old recipe of mine that was screaming for picture makeovers. I also re-tested it to make stovetop and slow cooker friendly. So, you have 2 options depending whether you want to come back home to “an Indian restaurant” or rather quickly whip it up in a sexy dutch oven while sipping on a glass of wine and listening to Frank Sinatra. The latter is my favourite way to cook (sans wine most times…

Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala

Just look at this slow cooker chicken tikka masala! Low and slow or high (hi) and bye. Fall and busy life quickly reminded me about my abandoned during summer months friend – slow cooker. There is nothing, absolutely nothing, better in the world than coming home from an ice rink to a warm cooked dinner waiting for you on a counter!!! If you work you must own a slow cooker! It cooks your breakfast while you sleep and makes your dinner while you are at work. OK, it…

Easy Turkey Meatballs

I think I can speak for everyone and say “We all love meatballs!”. When I told my kids I’m making meatballs for dinner, the eyes exploded with fireworks. I recently was at Ikea and saw their new vegetarian meatballs, and then their traditional meat meatballs which apparently are now made with more sustainably raised meat. Thanks for trying, Ikea! So, I got “turned on” by Ikea meatballs. Plus it is a true Fall weather which begs for warm cozy food aka easy turkey meatballs.

Clean Eating Slow Cooker BBQ Beans

These BBQ baked beans were such an accident and yet the most delicious beans you will ever make with the least effort! Great for potlucks and summer BBQ’s. I had a bag of organic dried pinto beans sitting on my pantry floor for months now. It was waiting for beans to be cooked and usually frozen for later use but this week we are expecting a company and I will be making my favourite The Biggest Loser Crock Pot Turkey Chili (with venison this time). It was Monday morning, I…

Easiest Slow Cooker Chicken and Spaghetti

This slow cooker chicken spaghetti was mind blowingly easy and delicious. 150th thousand time I got convinced that simple food is the best food ever! I slap my own hands quite often when I start adding a little bit of this and that. God forbid to brown butter… No need to make your life harder, America! When I first came to Canada, I was thinking “wow, fancy food they eat here” while flipping glossy cooking magazines. And never made a single recipe. Why? Because the ingredients list was so…
