Cinnamon & Pear Slow Cooker Oatmeal

I love pears. I also love cinnamon. As of late, I’ve been combining my two loves in the form of this irresistible oatmeal. The best part? With a slow cooker, it can be made overnight while I sleep, or in

Tteokguk (떡국)

Before leaving a Korean friend’s home earlier last week, she handed me a bag of medallion-cut rice cakes. I found it both cute and touching that she would assume that I, too, made tteokguk, the traditional Korean food for Lunar New Year’s Day.

Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Camembert-Pesto Sauce

Mulled Cider

It’s cold. You should drink something hot. How about mulled cider? Take advantage of apple season, and make the cider from scratch before combining it with spices and letting it simmer in a slow cooker. If you find yourself stumped
