Slow Cooker Pork Satay with Rice Noodles
We moved this past summer and while packing boxes in my old kitchen I came across my cookbooks. Through the years I’ve had a lot of cookbooks, but as time has passed I’ve donated the cookbooks that I never use or rarely crack open. I did though find the ones that have stood the test of time, housed within them are favored recipes that I still make regularly. Once we moved I found a nice cabinet in my new kitchen to tuck these few cookbooks nicely into.
I’m excited to share with you that I recently placed a new addition into that cabinet! A cookbook that has already proven its worth and no doubt will be cracked open over and over again. Bet you’re wondering which one I’m referring to? Well wait no longer I shall tell you! The brand spanking new Taste of Home Simple & Delicious Cookbook! Yes, Taste of Home!
This newly released cookbook features over 1,300 EASY recipes! Easy is the key word here, these are recipes that the everyday cook can whip up and be proud to serve! As soon as I opened the Taste of Home Simple & Delicious Cookbook I couldn’t stop turning the pages!
With loads of categories, you can easily find exactly what you’re looking for! I was particularly interested in the 30 Dinners in 30 section, just perfect for fast meal ideas as my kids are now back to school and dinnertime is hectic. You know I love a good casserole too, I’ve found a few casserole selections to try including one for the holidays: Sausage Hash Brown Bake found on page 435.
Each section has a “Try These Family Favorites” page with a selection that might quickly entice you. Especially helpful when you are in a hurry and need a quick suggestion.
The inside covers of this cookbook are even helpful! Loaded with full-color photos of recipes contained within you can easily plan a meal just by scanning over the gorgeous photos.
When you’ve selected a recipe, you’ll find easy to follow steps. Nothing complicated here! If you’re anything like me you’ll appreciate the abundance of big photos, I love seeing what my end product is supposed to look like. Now you are probably wondering what I made first out of this new found treasure, right?
I had a difficult time nailing down what to make first but ultimately a slow cooker dish is exactly what I needed because of our busy schedules. On page 134 in the Slow Cooking section, I found Pork Satay with Rice Noodles. Instantly I knew this had to happen! Don’t you agree this dish looks like a restaurant quality meal?
In less than 10 minutes I had all the items prepped and popped into my slow cooker. The aroma of this dish slow cooking all day was amazing! When the pork has finished cooking, you simply thicken the sauce and boil the rice noodles. Definitely do-able on a busy school night.
There are so many amazing recipes in this cookbook that I cannot wait to try! Everything from fast and easy side dishes to appetizers and great recipes for the upcoming holiday season too!
