Slow Cooker Stifado

Every recipe that begins with “Slow Cooker – ” should just replace it with “Easy – “. Because a slow cooker is a lazy / busy / incompetent person’s best friend. http://noblepig.com/2011/12/09/slow-cooker-beef–tomato-stew.aspx This recipe looked pretty good, but didn’t have enough flavor components in it to satisfy me, therefore I added the usual complement of…

I did not get the sauce to set quite as nicely on the fish as Ms. Beyond Kimchee did, hers looks like the sauce formed a beautiful crust on the…


Blackberry Clafoutis

Made this recipe yesterday:  http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2007/08/the_great_cobbl/ The noteworthy thing is how much better this clafoutis turned out than all my previous attempts (ok just one previous attempt). The recipe does not specify what kind of vessel to use for cooking, but I used a tart pan, which turned out to be the perfect size. The top…
