Sweet-And-Spicy Honey Buffalo Meatballs
- 24 ounces (680 g) frozen turkey meatballs
- ¼ cup (60 g) light or dark brown sugar
- ¼ cup (60 ml) bottled hot sauce
- ¼ cup (85 g) honey
- ¼ cup (80 g) apricot preserves
- 2 tablespoons (30 ml) low-sodium soy sauce
- 1½ tablespoons (23 g) cornstarch
Serves 8 | Cook time is 4 to 6 hours on low, or 2 to 4 on high
Slow cooker size: 4-quart (3.8-L)
Even though hot sauce is listed as a main ingredient in this recipe, these meatballs are not actually very spicy. Instead, what you get is a meaty turkey meatball with a lovely sweetness followed by just the right amount of spicy heat.
1. Add the frozen meatballs to the slow cooker.
2. In a small mixing bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients until
combined to create the sauce.
3. Pour the sauce mixture over the meatballs and stir to coat.
4. Cover the slow cooker. Cook on low for 4 to 6 hours or on high for 2 to 4 hours.
5. Set the slow cooker to the warm setting to keep the meatballs warm while serving.
Cheesy Mozzarella Pesto Chicken Pasta
- 1 pound (455 g) boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1 cup (260 g) pesto, store-bought or homemade (page 315)
- ½ fresh lemon, squeezed
- ¼ cup (55 g) unsalted butter
- 16 ounces (455 g) cooked al dente rotini pasta
- 2 cups (225 g) shredded mozzarella cheese and ½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
Serves 4 to 6 | Cook time is 5 1/4 to 6 1/4 hours on low
Slow Cooker Size: 5-quart (4.7-L) or larger
The whole family will love this easy and tasty dish. The pesto adds a ton of flavor to the chicken and pasta. Pair it with a side dish of your favorite steamed vegetables or a salad for a complete meal!
1. Add the chicken to the slow cooker, season with salt and pepper.
2. Spread the pesto over the chicken and squeeze the juice of 1/2 of a lemon over the chicken and pesto.
3. Cut the butter into pats, place on top of the chicken.
4. Cover the slow cooker. Cook on LOW for 5 to 6 hours.
5. When the chicken is cooked, shred the meat with two forks into bite-size pieces. Add the chicken back to the slow cooker.
6. Add the cooked rotini pasta, mozzarella cheese, and Parmesan cheese to the slow cooker. Stir.
7. Cover the slow cooker. Cook for an additional 15 min, or until the mozzarella is melted.

Know this going in: this cookbook is full of Midwestern American sensibilities. My partner and I love it, but we're both originally from the Midwest. If you're unfamiliar with the cuisine, expect a lot of casseroles, creamy dishes, sweet/fruity desserts, and very little vegetarian options.
