717. Slow Cooker Iraqi White Bean Stew


I'm adapting my slow cooker to make Iraqi stews.
This was my first experiment and the results were highly successful.
You simply put everything in the slow cooker pot, set the heat, and come back six to eight hours later to a fully cooked stew!

716. Pumpkin Latte


When I hear of any pumpkin drink, I inevitably think of Harry Potter.
It's a bit confusing when people use the term pumpkin spice and then you find there is not pumpkin, just a combination of spices some people refer to as pumpkin spice. This recipe is not like that. It has real pumpkin in it.

710. Chicken Fingers with Dipping Sauce


Double-drenching tenderized chicken strips in seasoned flour makes for an amazing crispy crust. Make a gravy dipping sauce of it's own pan drippings, and it's a very special comfort meal indeed.
