i picked up Slow Cooker Revolution from the library. i’m finding myself being more and more intrigued with the slow cooker. i’m still not sure i understand the draw completely (not to mention leaving on a hot appliance for 3-8 hours) but the good people at America’s Test Kitchen are impressing me with their recipes for crock pot-style thai soup, pork chops, and mac and cheese. a slow cooker should be an easy craigslist find, right? and then if (when?) my slow cooker phase passes i won’t feel guilty.
