    Hi all!

    I couldn't find a thread about this, so I thought I would start one.

    I'm an avid cook, cooking and gardening are 2 of my passions.

    I'll start this by posting a recipe that works for many different kinds of meats that you have to slow cook.

    This works for turkey, chuck roasts, pork, and even whole chickens. Of course for a whole chicken you would cut the time down.

    The recipe I'm posting is for a whole pork shoulder. It makes quite a bit! You can use the left over meat in a variety of different ways, including shredded bbq pork sammies...or even tamales.

    Things you will need:

    1 pork shoulder
    1 head of cabbage
    about 6 carrots (or more if you would like)
    2 large onions
    2 apples
    3 cloves of garlic
    salt and pepper

    Find the biggest pot you have with a tight fitting lid.

    Cut up the cabbage into good sized chunks. Set aside.
    Wash your carrots (you can peel them if you want, I just scrape them with the back of a knife)
    cut your carrots into 2 inch pieces. Set aside
    Peel and cut your onions into quarters. Set aside.
    Peel your garlic, leave the cloves whole and set aside.
    Peel and core your apples. Set aside.

    Cut the fatty rind off of the pork shoulder. You can throw it away or make what my husband calls "meat candy" . To make that you cut the rind into 1 inch pieces and slow fry them until they are a deep brown color and crispy. These are really fattening, so just eat a few.

    Save your rendered fat for biscuits!

    Salt your shoulder down and sprinkle with pepper. Pork can take quit a bit of salt, but remember..it's easier to add more salt later. You can't take the salt out if you have added too much.

    Place your shoulder in the pot. I use a cast iron dutch oven, it's pretty large.

    Place the veggies ON TOP of the shoulder and then add a half a cup of water or broth.

    Put the lid on and place it in the oven. Slow cook at 250 degrees for about 8 hours ...until the meat is tender and falling off the bone.

    I serve this with fluffy mashed potatoes.

    This is a recipe that can be put together and popped in the oven at bed time and it's done when you wake up.

    If you're using chicken instead, put the veggies on the bottom and do not cook for as long (about 5 hours)

    If your using this method to cook a turkey, put the veggies on the bottom and don't cover. I put butter I've mixed with chopped herbs under the skin of the turkey.
    Slow cook at 250 for 8 hours and your turkey will be done when you wake up!

    My husband loves this method I use to cook meat..and even my picky grandson loves it!

    Try it!

    PS- this recipe is a good way to feed a lot of people for very cheap.

    OMG that sounds delicious! Thank goodness it's almost lunch time for me, because you made me hungry lol

    I do love to cook and I made a very quick and easy Bacon/Cheese/Spinach Quiche over the weekend

    6 eggs
    1 1/5 cups of heavy creme
    Salt
    Pepper

    blend together and set aside

    cook and crumple a pound of bacon
    Use a package of frozen spinach. (I actually let it thaw overnight in the fridge and then heated it up for 3 mins in the microwave on high or you can use fresh baby spinach).
    1 1/5 cup of shredded cheese
    1 deep dish 9 inch pie form (yes, deep dish! I made the mistake to buy a regular one lol)

    pack the spinach on the bottom of the pie
    add the bacon
    add the cheese
    pour egg/creme mixture over everything

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees (Fahrenheit), cook between 35-45 minutes.

    Original recipe

    This is a good starter or side dish:

    Garlic Mushroom and Bacon Bowl.
    -It does have a fancy name but I can't remember if for the life of me.

    Ingredients:

    -Amounts subject to taste.
    Garlic Butter
    Wild Mushrooms
    Smoked Bacon
    Double Cream
    Cheddar

    To Cook:

    Melt the garlic butter and get it hot.
    Throw in the mushrooms and bacon and cook until sealed.
    Pour over the cream and boil hard until thick.
    Put the result into a soup bowl and sprinkle the cheddar over the surface.
    Put the bowl under a grill until the top of the cheese has browned.
    Serve.

    Easy peasy.

    This sounds divine and I will try it! We love quiche!

    I have laying hens as well and always have tons of eggs. I think this will become a fast favorite in our family.

    I will make this for brunch! thanks for sharing

    Oh my goodness, that sound delicious! I will try this.

    I love the way cheese tastes when it gets a little crispy. It really brings out the natural sugars in the cheese and gives it an awesome flavor.

    Thanks for sharing!

    PS- I'm copying all of the fantastic recipes and pasting them to notepad. I'm going to also share them with my oldest daughter because she loves to cook as well.
