One of my excellent birthday pressies this year from my family was a slow cooker - this 5 litre guy from Breville
We picked it up this arvo, along with Slow Cooker, by the ABC's Sally Wise.
I bought A Year in a Bottle, by the same author, earlier in the year, and found that as well as being full of great recipes, it is a great resource for bottling in general. So, I'm really looking forward to cooking from this one too!
And to kick-start my relationship with the newest kitchen friend, I'm making Slow Cooker my cook book of the month - pop back every week or so to see how I go with the recipes, starting tomorrow with some very fine lamb shanks =)
(ooh, I know, I missed 2 months - March was crazy, then I had every intention of baking a recipe a week from the Essential Baking Cookbook for April, and had even started with the Hot Cross Buns, then I found myself ovenless for the rest of the month =( But in May, it is back on!)
