Moroccan Spiced Lamb Stew from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @HamiltonBeach

A vibrant blend of Moroccan spices makes a perfect complement to lamb and apricot stew. Ginger, cinnamon, salt and pepper mixed with aromatic nutmeg and cloves make this warming stew both homey and exotic. Lamb is commonly used in Moroccan cuisine, and marries well to this blend of spices. Let the stew come together in the slow cooker, and make your rice in the rice cooker, to create a meal that looks and tastes like it was prepared by a world-traveled chef. This recipe would also be good with chicken, and quinoa could easily be substituted for the rice.

Beef Bourguignon from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @HamiltonBeach

On cold days like this, we love the rich stew that is Beef Bourguignon. We adapted this Julia Child classic for the slow cooker, which makes food lovers on a time crunch extremely happy. This dish is perfect for a date night at home and goes great with a glass of red wine. You can serve the stew over mashed potatoes or thick, fresh bread. (We prefer the potatoes, but admit the bread is easier and still delicious.) Make fudge brownies the day before, so you’ll have a decadent dessert, too.
