Food Network Star Sandra Lee Offers Tricks for Slow Cooker Treats
When You Come in From the Cold
Youve baked the cookies, youve coated the caramel apples, and youve stocked the candy by the front door. Before you set out for an evening of trick-or-treating with the kids, youre going to have to think about whats for dinner when you get home. Sandra Lee – host of the highly-rated, Emmy-nominated Food Network show, Semi-Homemade Cooking with Sandra Lee, and “Sandra’s Money Saving Meals” – says that setting the slow-cooker will be the best thing you do all day.
Sandra says that your slow-cooker can be your bubbling cauldron this Halloween, and she’ll share her favorite recipes from her new book, “Money Saving Slow Cooking.” And theres no better time, as so many of the vegetables available during the Halloween season pumpkins, squash, sweet potatoes are perfect for the slow-cooker. The best thing about this oft-overlooked kitchen appliance is that you can combine the ingredients then walk away to spend time with your kids on one of their favorite holidays, and it only costs 2-cents per hour to operate.
Sandras tips and tricks for Halloween entertaining and decorating are based on her trademark 70/30 Semi-Homemade® philosophy. Its a formula by which anyone at any skill level can combine 70 percent ready-made products with 30 percent fresh ingredients, adding creative touches to make something that tastes as if it were completely made from scratch.
