Prizes!

Thank you Delia Online for the amazing prizes I won in the soup competition. A Morphy Richards hand blender (very swish !) and a beautiful Morphy Richards slow cooker, in the most gorgeous red colour. I am thrilled with them and cannot wait to try them out.

Any slow cooker advice gratefully received, have never used one but hearing great things about it!

I posted a photo of my prizes on the Delia Online Facebook page if you want a nosy :-)

I am a new(ish) convert to slow cookers. I love mine - they are so versatile, not just for stews and casseroles.

I htought i wouldn;t need a slow cooker as i am a home bod, i thought they were for busy working people who had no time to cook etc etc.

But how wrong could i be. Mine was cheap as chips and half price in a sale at argos.

I have cooked soups, stews (yeah i know!), puddings, currys, chinese, chops, so very lovely.

a word of advise though - if you are thinking of using, for example a delia recipe, that you want to cook in the slow cooker - HALVE the liquid any recipe mentions that is not a slow cooker recipe... and if it is a slow cooker recipe and it says 250ml of water/stock - don't think thats not enough i'll add some more, slow cookers cook by steam as well and extra moisture is created and the steam helps seal the lid to the cooking pot. try not to lift the lid too much - for every lid off, add 30 mins cooking time.

not sure if mine will get much use during the summer - but am sure i will do my chinese duck sometime soon.

Thats all good info. never thought of curries, chops and pudds. I don't have a slow cooker but......perhaps I'd better win one! :-) Sam.....foodie.
