There are many things in my life that I am happy for; good health, a decent job, good family and great friends! When it comes to the kitchen I was never quite so happy. A dodgy microwave, a toaster that broke on me and a washing machine that has just done likewise. The cooking and kitchen gods were against me, or so it seemed. One day cooking heaven descended upon me. That gift was the slow cooker.
It sounds stupid, and it sounds like some hippy cooking nonsense! But trust me when I tell you that the slow cooker is a work of genius. You haven’t lived until you’ve tasted a slow cooked lamb stew that has been cooking all day when you get home from work. Slap the ingredients in, pop to the gym, go to work and when you get home the perfect meal is waiting for you. Trust me; the slow cooker is God’s gift to the kitchen.
