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.

If you are like me and find there just isn't room for one more thing in your oven or on your stop top, take advantage of your slow cooker or crock pot and make a side dish in it this holiday. Here is a recipe for a yummy spinach dish you can make in your crock pot/slow cooker in 2 to 4 hours depending on the temperature setting.

3 pkgs (10-oz each) frozen spinach, thawed
1 large onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 tbsp curry powder
2 tbsp butter, melted
1/4 cup chicken stock or vegetable broth
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 tsp lemon juice

Combine the spinach, onion, garlic, curry powder, melted butter, and stock or broth in the cooker.  Cover and cook on low 3 to 4 hours or on high 2 hours. A half-hour before cooking time ends, add the cream and lemon juice; mix to combine.  Replace lid on cooker and finish cooking.

Yield: 8 servings
