Every time I see a ready assembled vegetable platter at a grocery store, just to pick up and go to a party, I cringe at its cost. I think it mostly reflects the price of labor, rather than the value of the veggies.
It doesn’t take a culinary genius to cut up raw vegetables, and to arrange them on a platter.
I have 3 different sizes of slow cookers, so one would think that I would use them often, but it’s just the opposite. I hardly ever use them, so when Maureen Locos Hewett shared this recipe for ribs with kraut prepared in a slow cooker, I decided to test it. It came out great! The meat was so tender…falling off the bones…and the kraut was very flavorful. The only thing I changed was that I used less broth, and more veggies…I added shredded carrots and chopped celery, plus some caraway seeds. I love caraway seeds in sauerkraut.
I love fresh bread, and lately have been testing many breads and rolls recipes. They all are absolutely delicious.
Some require a little more time than others, but none are too labor intensive or difficult to achieve.
I always thought that the ” No Knead” bread recipe was simple, and it is, but when I found this one for ONE HOUR bread, I could not believe it, until I made it and found it absolutely effortless and delicious.
I would have made it into a baguette, but since I do not have a special baking pan it requires, I used two loaf pans instead.
