the zen of slow cooking blog June 05 2015

Since 2012 we've been serving up recipes for the home cook from our blog. Search our extensive back catalogue for inspiration where we've got seasonal breakfast, lunch and dinner options covered.

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.
