Sample Recipes from my New Book

You asked for a couple sample recipes from my new 200 Slow Cooker Creations cookbook, so here they are! Two of my family's favorites:

Apple Cranberry Pork Chops

from page 159 of 200 Slow Cooker Creations

  • 4 boneless pork chops
  • 1 (16 oz.) can whole cranberry sauce
  • 3/4 cup applesauce

Place the pork chops in a greased 2 to 3 1/2 quart slowcooker. Spread the cranberry sauce over the top and then pour in the applesauce. Cover and cook on low heat for 6-8 hours or on high heat for 3-4 hours. Serve with rice or mashed potatoes.

Triple Rich Chocolate Cake
from page 191 of 200 Slow Cooker Creations

  • 1 devil's food cake mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup light sour cream
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 small box instant chocolate pudding
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Combine all ingredients by hand in a 2 quart mixing bowl. Pour the batter into a greased 3 1/2 to 5 quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on low heat for 5-6 hours, or until done in the center. Turn off the slow cooker and let the cake sit, covered, for 30 minutes before serving.

Tip: When baking this cake in the slow cooker, place 6-8 paper towels across the top of the slow cooker stoneware and then place the lid on top. This prevents the cake from becoming soggy when the condensation from the lid drips while cooking.
