Crockpot Curry for Two – Simple, Super Supper

Slow-Cooker-Curry-with-caption.jpg

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.

Cherry Tomato Crockpot Soup

IMAG0469.jpg

When a friend hands you 100+ homegrown, very ripe cherry tomatoes, just say THANKS and grab the slow cooker. This Fresh Cherry Tomato Soup crockpot recipe is a great idea, if I do say so myself. Sure, I could have made a ton of salsa, or salads out the wazoo, but I worked for the […]

Tee Pon Chicken (aka Sherry-Soy Chicken)

1TeePonChicken.jpg

Advice, please?  I was cooking a simple Tee Pon Chicken recipe, but fretting about photographing “ugly” brown on brown — dark shredded chicken over brown rice. Forget garnishes, I was HUNGRY and it smelled divine. Taking pictures of meat is a crap-shoot (sorry, kinda graphic when talking about food) but I really wanted to share […]

White Pepper Chicken Barley Soup Made By A Sometimes Princess

Chicken-Barley-Soup

Lucky timing, rain hit the morning after the Valley Performing Arts Center black tie opening. My little satin pumps woulda been ruined! There I was, in line for the potty with Calista Flockhart; Harrison Ford was waiting out in the hall. I people-watched next to Doris Roberts. Moved my tootsies so Beau Bridges could scoot […]

Crockpot Beef, Mushroom, Barley & Rosemary Soup

Crockpot Beef Mushroom Barley Soup by Worth The Whisk

It isn’t often that I cook with beef. I’m CHEAP, remember? But Omaha Steaks was having a sale and that’s my (frugal) chance to fill the freezer with steaks and burgers. Somehow I added Tri Tips to that order, apparently part of a package. Hmmm, really cold weather and chunks of beef at my culinary […]

Machines Made Dinner ~ Sausage, Red Beans & Rice

Red-Beans-and-Rice.jpg

This day, Larry was focusing all his attention on a case (he’s a legal expert witness), I was volunteering at UCLA Hospital (Info Desk Lady). Crockpot + rice cooker = dinner. Now, this is not a New Orleans Sausage, Red Beans and Rice, it’s a Patti version. Nor is it “cooking fresh” — it’s what […]

Red Lentils and Sausage

Sausageandredlentils.jpg

This is a simple post. When our pantry is looking pretty empty, there’s always lentils. Make some. Include sausage. Spoon hot over cooked brown rice. Sprinkle with fresh-snipped chives from a pot on the patio (this is making me sound hippie-ish. COOL). Yes, I could write about their nutrition. Or how cheap they are. Or […]

On behalf of all Pattis, Patricias, Pattys, Patricks, Pats and Paddys, today is “our” day. Our weather here in Southern California just turned gorgeous, and stores are full of spring flowers (this photo was shot in Chicago – home of some pretty great St. Patty’s Day activities). Larry surprised me yesterday with a beautiful spray […]

Crockpot Caramel Sauce Cooked in a Can

CrockpotDulcedeLeche.jpg

My goal was to make dulce de leche, a South American sweet spread. Traditional recipes boil milk, sugar, vanilla bean for some time, then strain, lots of sticky work. People also boil or bake sealed cans of sweetened condensed milk immersed in water, bringing to mind the thought of potential explosions. Then I discovered blogger […]

Plain, Simple, Versatile Cooked Shredded Chicken

Shredded-Chicken

“This is a recipe?” you may ask. Well, no, but it’s a favorite technique of mine to tackle a few things simultaneously on a leisurely Sunday, my happy cooking day. Chicken parts were a very good price this week, frugal friends. Sunday morning, I threw two pounds of them into the crockpot with two bay […]

Green Turkey Chili

GreenTurkeyChili.jpg

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 […]
