The little slip of paper was in my eyeglass case on the kitchen table for, oh let’s see, THREE houses by now: Westwood, the Playa Vista rental, and now the new house. Time to make this keen little recipe (and alter it slightly) for Slow Cooker (aka “Crockpot”) Curry.

But when you attend the Julie & Julia movie, you’ll understand this urge to make boeuf bourguignon.  The dish was practically one of the actors in the film, its […]

Even in summer, the Crockpot works overtime here.  In fact, we get all the little appliances together and set the rice cooker to finish simultaneously.  Yesterday, Larry and I hit a 5 PM movie and when we walked in the door, dinner practically served itself.  We ate this Green Turkey Chili with a scoop of […]
