Slow-Cooked Stew Meat Chili

Rating: Unrated
This hearty chili is truly a snap to prepare. After browning the beef and stirring in the spices to give them a slightly toasted flavor, you simply toss everything into a slow cooker and let the mixture simmer all day. Garnish with sour cream, chopped fresh parsley, and chopped red onion.

Slow Cooker Chicken Bone Broth

Rating: Unrated
This slow-cooked bone broth uses roasted bones and unpeeled veggies, which produces a much deeper flavor and darker color. For a lighter-colored broth, omit the roasting step and use peeled veggies. The longer this simmers, the richer it gets, however don't go longer than 48 hours as the flavor can turn bitter. Make sure about half your bones are collagen-rich, such as chicken backs, feet, or wings. Season with additional salt, if desired, upon serving.

Meadowwood Tapioca Pudding

We love pudding here. Tapioca pudding is a favorite. We can make it on Friday, and it will be completely gone by Sunday night. Eat hot, or chill and eat. It is wonderful with whipped cream on top and a handful of fresh berries if it is berry season.

Slow Cooker Chai

Rating: Unrated
Easy version of chai tea, using whole spices and sweetened condensed milk. To vary the flavor, try adding a bit of star anise, fennel, allspice, vanilla bean, or nutmeg. For a sweeter tea, stir in a bit of brown sugar.
