Easy Slow Cooker Chili

Have been attempting to befriend my slow cooker, and despite a lot of researching, I have still had 2 duds, but this one was a winner.

I made it exactly as the recipe but did cook the meat separately and drained most of the fat. It still has a bit of oil in it--plenty enough to be good. Topped with a thick plain yogurt, cheddar cheese, and some crushed tortilla chips. Really, really yummy and easy. Thanks.

Easy Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

After putting all the ingredients in, I remembered I'm not a big fan of cinnamon and pork from a recipe I didn't like long ago, so I added another tsp of cumin and some paprika and pepper to make the cinnamon less prominent.

Once I added the bbq sauce and then put the sandwich together with some basic coleslow, OMG! SO good. For me, it became a fantastic recipe with the bbq sauce on it.

I used this simple barbeque sauce which took just 5 min to put together.

Thanks for a keeper!

Noodleless Zucchini Lasagna

This is the second noodleless lasagna I've tried. The other one had little tricks for keeping the water out but it didn't work. This one came out great! It was a nice firm lasagna, it smelled so good cooking, looked beautiful.

The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars---Roasting the zucchini was a guess as to how to do it--temp or way. I assumed with oil b/c that's how veggies are usually roasted, but I did one batch as a dry roast and those worked out better--I dried both the oil roasted and dry roasted ones with paper towels as both had moisture.

I live in a country with no cottage used ricotta and it was delish.

Thanks for finally helping me find a good gluten free lasagna dish.
