Kids don’t like green food. OK, that’s not an absolute because my nine year old loves Brussels spouts; but overall, anything green is typically not well received by the under-eighteen set. So, I’ve taken old fashioned split pea soup, vamped it up, and made kid-friendly organic and vegan golden pea and barley soup. Better yet, this is a slow cooker recipe so you can toss it all in and come back to a rich, hearty dinner the whole family will love. Since I don’t like multi-step slow cooker recipes (because what is the point if you have to do a bunch of prep), this is a throw-it-in-and-go kind of dish. Enjoy!

Stuck indoors because of bitter winter weather? Heat things up with a hearty, homemade soup! This three-step, slow cooker creation combines fresh or canned pumpkin with creamy coconut milk and sense-awakening spices—ginger, garlic and turmeric—for flavorful, rich dish to chase away the chills.
When you make a meal in a slow cooker, you can “prep and forget,” going about your day while it takes care of the cooking. Another advantage is that you’ll probably have leftovers, giving you a quick lunch or a dinner for another day. This Beans & Greens recipe is not only hearty and nutritious, it freezes well. Why not make a batch, pack it up and relax knowing you’ve got a healthy meal ready to go when you need it?
We’re having record high temperatures in my home state of Texas. The heat seems to bring out my creativity as I’ve devised a number of ways to avoid using my oven. My slow cooker is often used in the winter-time for soups and savory dishes, but I’ve discovered that it’s perfect for the summer months, as well.
This easy Slow Cooker Cobbler is the perfect way to avoid using your oven on a hot summer day. The recipe retains all of the fruity flavors of an old-fashioned baked cobbler without using as much heat. If you’re grilling outside, this dessert can be slowly cooking inside and cooling while dinner is served. It’s the perfect way to use summer fruits, but can be prepared all year long. Slow cook your way through the rest of the summer and keep cool!
