All my slow cooking recipes are now online and starting today, I will add all the recipes shared weekly to my online del.icio.us site too. So if you're wanting to find ALL the slow cooked recipes that have been shared since the first SLOW COOKING THURSDAY, here is the link for you.


Morning ladies, it's thursday and time for another Slow Cooking Thursday. I'm sporting a new SCT banner so go ahead and update your old ones when you get a chance.

Thank you again to all the participants, I've gotten such a wonderful collection of recipes already and can't wait to see more.

Don't forget to add your name to Mr Linky and a link back to your SCT post so others can come by and see your recipe too.

Last week was all about slow cooking and boy was it good..........I think I'll have another slow cooking week themed menu coming up soon.

For dinner tonight I'm having Slow Cooked Smothered Steaks and Mashed potatoes, it's one of those tried and true family favorites :)

Here's today's recipes:
