Lentil Coconut Stew from Carrie on Living | www.carrieonliving.com

Okay, so a lentil stew isn’t the epitome of summer cooking, but my excuse for making it now is that this recipe gets made in the slow cooker, so the house doesn’t get overheated from the oven or stovetop. And, while I used a cool new product from Pacific Foods called Bone Stock, you can… [Continue Reading]

Summer is here, but that doesn’t mean we have to stop cooking. I like using the crock-pot when temperatures heat up, because it means I don’t have to heat up my kitchen with the stove or the oven. And, even though I love my cold salads even more in the summertime, I do like the… [Continue Reading]
