the zen of slow cooking blog June 05 2015
∞ We want to help you create success in the kitchen by sharing simple, straightforward, whole food recipes prepared in 20 minutes or less ∞
∞ We understand some of you work outside of the home all day, while others are home soon after the school day ends. We balance a series of “gone-all-day” slow cooker dishes alongside those with a shorter cooking time that we refer to as “afternoon prep” recipes ∞
∞ We use the seasons as a guide in preparing our recipes and incorporate vegetables grown in Jane’s urban community garden in Chicago ∞
∞ We understand it’s practical to offer variations and alternative ingredients in recipes to allow flexibility and to encourage a healthy lifestyle. Some recipes are “dressed up” for more formal occasions ∞
∞ We offer insight into creating a more mindful approach to living ∞
....and finally, don’t be fooled into thinking your slow cooker is for the cooler months: we share recipes for the entire year, sweet and savory, to help keep the heat out of the kitchen whatever the season.
