Works for Me, if it works for you…..

So the story is:

I had an accident with my steamer which could be read as I burnt the back side clean out of it 😦

I’m only sorry I didn’t take pictures before I disposed of my lovely wedding present.

Instead of replacing it I’m planning on putting the money  into a slow cooker.  

I’m not really sure which to go for, I was wondering if anyone could help?

I want large capacity so I’m thinking of something like this.

I’ve also noticed this type where you can cook two things simultaneously, is this a good feature?

If you could let me know which type you have and the best features it has it might help me get over the steamer incident!

Oh and while you’re here, incase I purchase soon, let me know what your best Slow Cooker recipe is that way there are no excuses.

My tip to-day is don’t just replace broken kitchenware think of how you can put the money into something else you’ve always wanted 🙂

Head over to Shannon for more Works for Me Wednesday tips.









Rhubarb and Orange Slump

As recommended by my friend Janus who also supplied the Rhubarb 🙂

Rhubarb and Orange Slump is a great alternative to Rhubarb Crumble which is a favourite in our house.

If you come under the category of “not much of a pastry maker” you may also appreciate this recipe.

“A Slump is a New England pudding made with seasonal fruit”.

We’ll certainly be making this again. 

Thanks Janus,
