Last month's Real Simple included a Slow Cooker feature (above), which I obviously clipped out and saved. I was especially excited to try the Curried Chicken with Ginger & Yogurt - curry is on the shortlist of Kendrick's favorite meals, but isn't something I've ever experimented with making.

My sister-in-law Elizabeth recently sent me a recipe for something called "Angel Chicken," and last night I gave it a spin with a few minor modifications.
I adapted the dish to suit my tastes, as should really be done with all-in-one-pot meals like this one (it's really hard to mess them up, so go ahead and pour in everything you like), and it turned out quite stunningly. Not stunningly beautiful, alas (such is life when it comes to stews), but very, very delicious.
I've always been a bit wary of chili, because the few times I've had it it's been five-alarm spicy, and I don't want my eating to involve...pain. This chili is painless. And flavorful. And inexpensive. And easy!
In the past, my lentil soup has been a little hit-or-miss, mostly because my oven is a 300-year-old evil ogre that enjoys transforming things that need to be cooked for a long time on low heat into a smoking, charred mess...but now, with the arrival of my trusty slow-cooker, there is absolutely no chance of screwing it up.
I know, I know: I'm obsessed with my slow-cooker. But the recipe that reader Ali posted sounded too good not to make immediately.
On New Year's Eve, we headed back to our place for Slow-Cooked BBQ Pork paired with baked beans, potato salad, and coleslaw.
This is the first time I've made my Aunt Jo-Anne's famous (at least in our family) baked beans in a slow-cooker. Highly. Recommended.
Yesterday morning I looked up a bunch of the recipes that you guys recommended, and I decided that I'd be able to cobble something together using what I already had in my cupboard. I was only missing one thing: the meat.
Thanks to my wonderful in-laws, I am now the proud new owner of a slow cooker. I've always wanted one (no dishwasher means I particularly love one-pot meals)...but I've never really used one before, sooo...any amazing slow cooker recipes you wouldn't mind passing my way?
So excited to play with my new toy!
