Italian Wonderpot. Last weekend I got an email from Robyn with a link to this really cool recipe over at Apron Strings.

Italian Wonderpot

I always love cooking pasta and rice in liquids other than water, so this idea for a one pot pasta dish (which is originally from Martha Stewart Living Magazine) was right up my alley! This dish is incredibly easy and super flavorful. The pasta cooks in a mixture of broth, herbs, and aromatics, like onion and garlic, which really ramp up the flavor. The starch that leaches off of the pasta as it cooks helps create a thick sauce right in the pot.

It’s magic! I made a few changes, as usual, to fit my needs. I think next time I’ll save adding the frozen spinach until the end so that it will defrost and heat quickly from the pasta’s residual heat.

Slow Cooker Poached Salmon with Lemons & Fresh Herbs — Recipes from The Kitchn

This "poached" salmon recipe isn't necessarily about long cooking but it definitely highlights a slow cooker's other abilities — like putting something into the pot and walking away. What you get is a moist, flavorful salmon without the usual worries of dry, overcooked fish. Just like in my recipe for slow cooker "baked" rigatoni, this poached salmon recipe is all about ease.
