Anyone else freakin’ love their slow cooker? I am an addict, as probably evident by the 7 or so crockpot’s I currently have in various storage areas of my life. Here’s the thing, I love to cook (duh), but somedays I just don’t want to think about it. That’s when I bust out the big guns, my slow cooker. True story, my kitchen is probably 7 feet wide, including all of the cabinets, making for a 3×3′ area that I work in with two large dogs underfoot and one tiny sink. Every now and then I just need to step out of that zone and take time away from it all.

So, I pop everything in and go outside to enjoy life or anything but stand in my kitchen for a moment longer. Even if it’s just an afternoon on the deck with the company, get out of the kitchen while the slow cooker works its magic. It’s like my secret ace up my sleeve. The slow cooker pops in all the flavor while I smile and sit back with a cocktail.

When entertaining, besides grilled specialties and easy cheese trays, I always have all (yes, all) of my slow cookers on full blast handling everything froup dips to dessert. It makes feeding a ton of people totally manageable and cleanup is a breeze. Seriously, embrace the slow cooker. It’s my kitchen BFF (ok, right after my good knives).

Let’s chat flavors for a minute. Since being introduced to hoisin a few years back, I am convinced it’s one of the best flavors out there. It’s essentially a Chinese style barbecue sauce perfect for long braises and slow cooking. If you have a house filled with classic meat and potato sort of eaters, sneak in this recipe for hoisin slow cooker chicken to test out the waters and see the reaction. This recipe for slow cooker hoisin sliders is perfect for big crowds when you don’t want to serve the same pulled chicken again and again. (Bonus, this hoisin chicken is great in tacos, on rice bowls, as quesadilla stuffing, and nacho toppings too!)

  3. Hi, there’s something wrong with your subscription link. When I tried to subscribe to your blog, I was redirected to another blog called “pass the sushi” and was tricked into subscribing to their blog. I would still like to subscribe to your blog, so please let me know how to do it. Also thought you should know about the scam 🙂
