During the summer months, we tend to abandon our slow-cookers. It sits on the kitchen counter gathering dust, reminding us of the colder days when we slurped on soups and stews rather than blasting the air conditioning and eating nothing but ice cream. But there’s no reason to so rudely ignore your Crock-Pot — it’s capable of doing so much more than just making a rich chicken stew. It’s time to give that essential piece of kitchen equipment some love, and allow it to transform your weekend mornings into long, lazy, relaxed affairs.
