Flounder in Cream of Mushroom Sauce Slow Cooker Recipe

flounder-cream-mushroom-sauce

If you’re looking for an easy to prepare and tasty seafood recipe for your crockpot or slow cooker, this is it. While the recipe calls for flounder, almost any white fish like halibut, tilapia, or swai can be substituted. This recipe is very kid friendly and is an easy way to get picky eaters to add some seafood to their menu. The vegetables help keep things healthy and kids love it. You can make a double batch for leftovers the next day. If your guests prefer something with a little more kick, try adding in bit of cayenne pepper or tabasco sauce. Sometimes I’ll add in Rocky Mountain Seasoning from the Spice House to give it a little more flavor. You can use white potatoes or red potatoes; if you substitute Yukon gold potatoes, they are a little denser and will take slightly longer to cook. If you don’t have baby carrots, diced regular carrots work just as well. If you happen to have a bay leaf or two on hand, adding one in will bring some flavor to the party. Just don’t forget to remove it before serving.

OXO Adjustable Potato Ricer Review

IMG_1733

In this article I’m going to be taking a look at the OXO Good Grips Adjustable Potato Ricer. If you’ve spent any time shopping for kitchen tools or gadgets, chances are pretty good that you’ve familiar with the OXO brand and know that they have a reputation for durable, high quality products. That’s certainly true here. The lever part of product is about 15″ long and made of stainless steel. However, like all OXO tools, it has a soft cushioned grip wrapped around the lever handles, which you will appreciate on holidays like Thanksgiving when you’re making up a huge batch of mashed potatoes. A bit of history: the OXO “soft grip” was originally developed for people who had arthritis and had difficulty applying pressure on normal kitchen gadgets. It turns out a lot of folks really liked the soft grip, though, not just people with arthritis. The ricer disc blades are made from a thick piece of stainless steel, and the slots have a smooth edge so your potatoes will come out with a nice delicate texture. Rough edges would produce a lumpy, jagged, and inconsistent texture, not something you usually want in your food. [Read more…]
