One of the things I’ve noticed when going through my blog analytics is that you all love Slow Cooker recipes.  I had a few on the back burner that I have been wanting to make and they came out really well.  So, I’m going to share them with you!

Today’s is one with just a bit of peeling & chopping prep.  It makes a huge batch of soup that your family will want seconds of on a cold winter night.

1. Place the potatoes, shallots, ginger and chicken broth in the slow cooker.  Cover and cook on high for 2 to 3 hours or on low for 4 to 5 hours.  Potatoes should be tender when done.
