Spring forward from the kitchen. With schedules heating up and calendars going wild in springtime, the slow cooker comes to the rescue. Show us your spring specialties from the slow cooker, featuring bubbling main dishes, appetizers, side dishes and desserts using the season's best ingredients.
Stick to 12 ingredients or fewer, please. You could win $500 and a featured spot in an upcoming Taste of Home. Be sure to think spring.
Send your slow cooker recipes in these categories:
- Appetizers and Sides. How about a new take on spinach dip? Or a side dish with spring-fresh flavor, like glazed carrots or creamy field peas with onion? Prowl the produce aisle and go from there.
- Entrees, Sandwich Fillings, Soup. This deliciously broad category means everything from chicken with new potatoes to an herbs and veggie lasagna. Show us how you use your slow cooker in the springtime.
- Slow Cooker Desserts. Indoors or out, it's hard to resist the aroma of fresh fruits bubbling and baking. Think cobblers and compotes. Or perhaps a lemony pudding cake. Even a fudgy chocolate cake works in a slow cooker (but be sure to top it with a taste of spring)!
