Alternative to Onions

I thought ferreting out hidden dairy in products was bad. Onions are worse. I know there are whole groups of foods and recipes I can do up sans onions but how can I fix my favorite foods without onions. [more inside]

Can I Eat This? Slow Cooker Tomato Sauce Didn't Finish Cooking

So, this morning, I made some slow cooker marinara. Threw everything in the pot, turned the cooker on low for eight hours, and left for work. Got home. The sauce is... not hot. It's not cold. [more inside]

Will my slow cooker plan work?

For the first time in my life I'm going to cook dinner for guests tomorrow. I tested a boneless-short-ribs-in-slow-cooker recipe a few weeks ago and it came out well. But I'm worried about the timing tomorrow. [more inside]

Pork Butt Snafu - Will this ruin our camping trip?

I put a (very expensive, pasture-raised) 6 lb. pork shoulder into my All Clad ceramic slow cooker this morning. I just went into the kitchen and discovered that although the slow cooker shows it's set to low and that 6 1/2 hours have elapsed, the heating element never turned on. Can I cook it in the oven? Is it safe to eat? [more inside]

Will a slow cooker work for me?

I might buy a slow cooker, but this is not a common appliance in my country, so I've got lots of questions. The most important one at the moment is: will a slow cooker work for me if I'm gone for 10-11 hours before I get home? [more inside]

Adapting oxtail stew recipe for slow cooker

I'd like to make this oxtail stew recipe, but in the slow cooker. Any ideas on how to adapt it? I'm thinking of halving the recipe and doing it for 9-11 hours on low in the slow cooker instead of 3-3.5 hours in the dutch oven.

Tagine vs slow cooker

I have one of these that I use for tagine recipes (with a diffuser on my gas range, usually for around 2 hours). I've been looking at slow cooker recipes, and notice that the ingredients are very similar. What I assume is different is that a slow cooker cooks for longer with lower heat. What is the essential difference between tagine and slow-cooker cooking, and how can I adapt slow cooker recipes for cooking in my pot?

Put it in the fridge. No, not THAT part.

As I was leaving for work yesterday, I instructed my mother to "help yourself to the oatmeal; afterwards, put it in the downstairs fridge." This morning, as I opened the downstairs fridge, I discovered she'd put the actual slow cooker appliance into the fridge along with, instead of just, the ceramic insert with the food. Will this harm the slow cooker? [more inside]

Can I do anything with pig skin after slow-cooking it?

I made some delicious slow-cooker pulled pork using this chow.com recipe. I cooked the pork shoulder with the skin on, believing it to add flavour. After cooking, it came right off, along with a thick layer of fat. I've looked up pork scratching recipes, but none of them take into account that I cooked it for 8 hours beforehand. I'd like to do something useful with it, but I'm not sure what. Is it destined for my tummy or the bin?

Can this marrow be saved?

I have a crock pot full of grass fed beef marrow bones and vegetables that have been cooking on low for the past 30 hours or so. I'm about to strain the broth from the solids. The solids will include the bones themselves, chunks of marrow, and bits of assorted vegetables. Any things to do with the solids besides toss them out? Is there still any nutritional value in them or has it all been leached out into the broth? As for the broth, I'll refrigerate it and skim off any fat that solidifies on top. Uses for the fat?
