Slow Cooker Bacon Enhanced Carnitas

I’ve read about carnitas a lot. They always look delicious but for some reason, finding ‘pork shoulder’ here in Spain isn’t easy. I’ve ordered it before from the butchers, but usually I’m not that organised to order something from the butchers. But when I saw Mark Sisson’s Crispy Carnitas, I couldn’t resist to attempt my own version. Yes, I based it on his recipe – but with a...

Slow Cooker Chicken Mole from Rubies and Radishes

This recipe popped up on my feed via Our Life in Food but originally hails from Rubies and Radishes. It was one of those recipes that as it scrolls past, I realised that I have every ingredient in the house and no need to make a special trip to the supermarket for. I love those. I actually followed the recipe more or less exactly. (This is a rarity for me!) I’d add a bit more chili next time, because this was really mild due to...

Triple Hamburger Meatloaf from PaleoPot

In an effort to simplify meals for the week, I’ve taken to cooking a Big Batch Of Something on a sunday and then dividing it up for servings during the week. I did spicy mince one week, then chilli, then meat sauce. They lend themselves to either eating simply, or adding stuff to make a completely different meal. I like that. This week I decided to do a meatloaf and PaleoPot posted a recipe for a Triple Hamburger/Cheeseburger...

SC Squash and Roasted Vegetable Soup

On Wednesday night, the only thing I could find in the fridge to cook was sweet potatoes. And bacon. And salad. So obviously I prepared the sweet potatoes and wrapped ’em in bacon. But there were three huge ones, so I figured while the oven was on, I’d roast a few other things that I also found in the fridge – like courgettes, onions and cherry tomatoes. But it was all too much for dinner, so I packed my roasted veg...

No-Beans Baked Beans from PaleoPot

OhMyGod! This was amazing! This recipe for No-Beans Baked Beans came up on my feed on Facebook from PaleoPot yesterday. I couldn’t wait to try it. Plus, I’ve been itching to use the slow cooker for a while now but couldn’t figure out anything ‘summery’ to make. This was perfect. As per usual, I wasn’t totally exact. It took me a while to figure out that ‘salt pork’ in the recipe was...

SC Pork Rib & Chorizo Mess

I wasn’t going to post this one. I’m not sure it’s my most successful meal, but it’s all about experimentation when it comes to cooking. And I figured I could post this, and you can just take it as a ‘serving suggestion’ and amend it. Saying that, it was actually rather tasty! I have never cooked ribs. Consequently, I have never bought ribs from the butchers. So when I asked for some, the butcher...

Sorta Festive Slow Cooker Turkey

Oh, I’m REALLY loving the slow cooker thing. Toss a bunch of stuff in there in the morning, wash up the prep area (yeah, who am I kidding), forget about it and then when you remember you have to cook dinner, it’s like it’s already done! Oh slow cooker, where have you been all my life!? I had some turkey breast in the fridge (fancy that, suddenly the supermarkets here are carrying turkey breast. I mean, you can get it...

SC Roast Chicken

Shh – don’t tell anyone, but I bought myself a new kitchen gadget the other day. It was on sale and I’d be thinking about getting on for, oh, all of about 2 or 3 weeks. It’s a slow cooker. Apparently, they are just the bees knees for tossing loads of stuff in a pot and then letting it cook all day. I imagine it’s also pretty good if you’re trying to sell your house – as it makes the kitchen...
