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.

CAPONATA

1 med (approx. 1 lb) eggplant, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 can (14.5-oz) diced Italian tomatoes, undrained
1 med onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, seeded and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/2 cup salsa (your choice of heat)
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tbsp capers, drained
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup packed fresh basil, cut into thin strips
Sliced, toasted Italian or French bread

Combine the first 11 ingredients in a slow cooker or crockpot.  Place lid on cooker and cook on low for 7 to 8 hours until the veggies are crisp tender.  Stir in the basil.

Serve at room temperature on the toasted bread.
