  1. The insert for my 3qt slow cooker broke (due to something falling on it). They no longer make a replacement crock in that size. Now I need a new slow cooker. I haven't shopped slow cookers for 20+ years because my old ones worked great. Are there features I should consider? Or just go with whichever one looks pretty and is roughly the right size? I used this one for making oatmeal and soups - 3qt is just the right size for a box of broth and some veggies, to be pureed with a stick blender right in the crock. Would I be annoyed if I got a 2.5 qt model? A 4-qt model? I prefer white, which seems to rule out a lot. (I know, I'm supposed to be all black and stainless and granite as per HGTV. But I'm not; I'm light wood and white and blue, and I'm sticking to it.)
  2. I finally broke down and bought an Instant Pot :001_smile: So tell me your favorite recipes. I can't wait for it to arrive! SaveSave
  3. Tell me about how you schedule it. Do you pick certain days of the week and make whatever you feel the need for on those days? Or always make certain items on the same day (e.g. tortilla Tuesdays)? Or pick a frequency for regularly used items and squeeze it around the rest of your schedule? ETA: I am looking to stop buying anything sold in plastic packaging, so references to other foods you make are fine as well. I do make yogurt when our jar is getting low and I have enough milk.
  4. What does "knowing how to cook" mean to you? If you think that it is important for your children to learn this skill, what is included? My grandmother would probably think I do not know how to cook--I would have no idea how to wring a chicken's neck, clean the chicken, cut it up, and fry it. My friends in Austria would think I do not know how to cook because I haven't mastered Wiener Schnitzel, Spaetzle, and Apple Streudel. My mom cooked a great deal when I was growing up, but she has not managed well living alone (somehow cooking something and freezing a portion for later has always been difficult for her).
  5. How did I not know this existed?! In case others didn't know, here is the link for the Well Trained Kitchen.
  6. ...So we've spent the past few months going through Exploring Creation with Chemistry and Physics (Apologia Young Explorers) and we're just wrapping up the last chapter on chemistry, but I don't feel ready to be done with it (also because we're nowhere near through the periodic table, though they've memorized it thanks to a 1000 piece puzzle of it they recently finished). At the same time, my grandiose plan to spend 1-2 hours a week on "life skills" hasn't panned out, so as I took delight in tasting the butter we made today (chemistry experiment), the idea popped into my head that maybe instead of going forward with physics (which we could save for next year), we ought to spend the rest of the year on chemistry, but make a hybrid of life skills by centering it on cooking and cleaning. We tend to be more bookish around here and neglect those practical, hands-on tasks, so I'm thinking this could be a means toward balance. My "curriculum" so far (for my kids ages 8, 10, 12), but I'd love to get other suggestions: Home Skills for Girls Home Skills for Boys Science Experiments You Can Eat Basher's Periodic Table The Elements (Visual Guide) This is intriguing but I'm not sure if the science is up to date and we don't want to use harsh chemicals. Anyone done anything like this?
  7. Dd turned 10yo several weeks ago. I would really like to start teaching her to cook some simple meals. I'm just not sure where to start. One problem is she is terrified of turning on the gas burners. It's really easy, but she is afraid there will be too much gas getting into the air before it lights and it will start a major fire. Yes, she is a worrier and always afraid of getting hurt when trying something new. She can use the oven and take out hot things with a mitt. The other problem is that she has to eat gluten-free. Because of this, some easy things that other kids could make are too complicated for her starting out. Any ideas for helping her learn this skill would be appreciated!
  8. Can you recommend a great crockpot cookbook that has PICTURES? I need photos or I can't pick recipes. Most crockpot cookbooks I've found don't have any, or only a few, or just some in B&W. I need full color photos of yummy creations to get inspired for new recipes. Help? Thanks! Melissa
  9. This isn't really K-8, it's more for the preschooling forum that doesn't quite exist here, but bear with me: I'm imagining a book that explains how to do a series of food prep/cooking/baking projects with little kids. Ideally, this book would have a series of recipes of increasing difficulty, it would recommend tools and techniques appropriate for toddlers, and it would suggest "extensions" that would reinforce concepts and skills. I'm thinking of like a foodie version of The Read-Aloud Handbook or Young at Art. Any ideas?
  10. I'm looking for ingredients in tossed green salads. I need to have a salad per day to increase my vegetables. Adding protein would be stellar, because I don't get enough of that either. My standard fare: baby spinach (I don't like regular lettuces) carrots tomatoes Things I've used before: boiled egg whites (I avoid yolks) celery green pepper ham turkey I don't eat salad much because it's so boring to eat the same thing all the time. What else is good with baby spinach?
  11. Looking for your favorite tried and true Made from Scratch cookbook or website recs. I am not an accomplished cook, so recipes and cookbooks are still necessary for success for me. When I looked at the Whole Foods cookbooks at the library, I realized that I am at the baby step phase and should actually call my cooking Made from Scratch, rather than Whole Foods, since those terms are not synonymous. Some of the ingredients in Whole Food recipes are completely unfamiliar to me! I'm looking for simple, yet tasty... healthy, but not tofu, please. I've been using my More with Less cookbook with success, any others? TIA
  12. I am starting to make our bread. Most recipes call for bread flour. A friend recommends King Arthur, but it is pricey. (She just buys her flour at the local grocery store.) Do any of you buy flour in bulk from Sam's or Amazon or?? Help!
  13. As I sit here eating the delicious roast beef dinner prepared by my DH, I cannot remember anyone ever teaching me how to cook. My grandmothers sent the kids outside while the adults cooked. My mom didn't really cook much, it was more preparing boxed/canned foods. (She worked so much that she relied on very simple meals for the two of us, like soup served over white rice.) When and how did you learn to cook? And is my dislike cooking because no one ever showed me how and helped me appreciate the skill?
  14. In June we'll cover breakfast and brunch recipes. I'm planning to do it where I teach them a recipe, then later test them on it. We'll probably do it Mon-Fri. In July we'll do lunch, and August will be dinner. I'm putting together our month schedule for breakfast/brunch, and I could use some ideas. :lurk5:
  15. I'm trying to make a basic list of recipes that my kids should know before they leave home. So far - cooking various kinds of egg (fried, scrambled etc.) spaghetti
  16. It's a family affair! We are taking a break for lunch, but we have already done *3 bags of taco meat *3 bags of plain ground hamburger for soups and chili *1 bag of cheese and beef enchiladas *1 meatloaf *1 package meatballs We have a turkey cooked to make turkey and cheese enchiladas, having plain turkey for soup. I have 2 chickens in the oven. Later we will shred it and make a few bags of BBQ shredded chicken, chicken quesadillas, spicy chicken. I am making 3 pizzas, pancakes, several batches of spanish rice and garlic rice. I am also making some chicken stirfry. WHEW!!! If this works out well, we are planning on making it a monthly 'family day' I am SUPER excited! Thanks again for posting about this. I had never even considered it before.
  17. It never ends. These people continue to become hungry again and again and again! I don't even want to spend a few hours making up a few new weeks worth of menus; I'm that lazy! And I should be homing in on some semblance of a dinner even as I sit here in the glow of my MacBook Pro, but am I doing that? No.
  18. I saw someone had a plan for their child to "cook through a cookbook". Please let me know how you may accomplish this.. Will you cook everything in the book? What is the cookbook you are using? I have a 7th grader and I think this would be great for her to do! Thanks
  19. I'm trying to build up a notebook of REALLY delicious healthy recipes. We are already all organic, no processed foods, raw milk, etc., but it seems that a lot of the healthy stuff I try to make tastes bland or blah. Thanks!
  20. I don't know how to post a poll, so will just ask...... I am making a bean and ham soup. I normally do not peel carrots or potatoes (but I do peel my taro roots)- do I *need* to peel parsnips and turnips, or is this personal preference? TIA, LB
  21. Does anyone have a set "lunch schedule" for your home that you use or do you just take it one week at a time? How do you vary up your lunch schedule so that the kids aren't bored of the "same old thing"? ETA: I meant to type "Lunches..." LOL! Can a mod fix that?
  22. I had my 5.5 yr old dd help me make muffins tonight. I had her do as much as possible, and explained a lot along the way. I was wondering at what age most of you start teaching a child to cook or bake? What age do you start letting them use sharp knives for cooking/baking prep? What, if any, resources have you used? I think I have a cookbook for kids that was given to me a couple of years ago, but I've ignored it because it was much to early (in my opinion) to start cooking with dd. I don't know what's in it. I'll check and post which one it is and what's in it. Looking for ideas, tips, kid-friendly kitchen tools (like special knives, etc...)...
  23. More food questions. I sat down to google qualities of Spelt, Kamut and Wheat Flours, only to find out they are closely related. Why then, is spelt and kamut flours soooooooo much better for me than wheat? Why do many of you grind your own flours? Cost? Taste? Preservative-free? Q about coconut milk and making creamy soups. I often use soy to make "creamy" broc soup but I picked up canned coconut milk to try in a creamy soup. I was ***shocked and awed*** by the fat/caloric contents of a full can. How do you balance fat with healthy fat . . . and is canned coconut milk out of the question in a healthy diet? Does anyone have fav links/blogs that are all about super healthy, whole foods, processed-free eating? I picked up the http://www.supernaturalrecipes.com site which I use often. TIA, T
  24. I have made crackers before that were good/okay but these were fantastic. I have never used spelt before but a friend of mine gave a bag of kernels so I went ahead and ground them. Here's a link to the recipe I used, which is very basic. The crackers are very crispy and delicious and very simple to make. http://smittenkitchen.com/2008/12/spelt-everything-crackers/ I am looking forward to a pot of smoky taco soup with some crackers and guacomole. (Followed by hot cross buns for desset.) Good thing I ran 8 km today. :001_smile:
  25. I feel kind of dumb asking this, but I love to cook and exchange ideas and recipies. I like to read about what other people like to cook. But is anyone interested in a social group?
