WELCOME

Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

SOUTHERN ARTICHOKE DIP

2 cans (14-oz) artichoke hearts, drained and finely chopped
1 (10-oz) pkg frozen chopped collard greens*, thawed and squeezed dry
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup low-fat mayonnaise
1/2 cup light sour cream
2 shallots, chopped
1/4 tsp hot pepper sauce
grated zest of 1/2 lemon
2 red bell peppers, cut into strips

Combine artichoke hearts, collard greens, Parmesan, mayonnaise, sour cream, shallots, and pepper sauce in a slow cooker or crockpot.  Cover and cook untilthe Parmesan melts and the dip is hot, about 1 to 2 hours on high or 3 to 4 hours on low.

After cooking, stir in the lemon zest.

Serve with the bell pepper strips.
