    Slow Cooking Seafood

    Slow Cooking Seafood

    When using the slow cooker for seafood dishes, the actual star of the show is a late-comer. The trick is to cook the background ingredients—the vegetables or sauces—for hours so they are tender. Then the fish gets added and usually cooks for no more than 30 minutes. The exact cooking time depends on how much fish you are using and if other ingredients are added at the same time.

Children want respect, too, and by explaining your rules you are showing her the kind of respect you want her to learn to give to you.

That's why knowing when your egg is released each month is so important if you want to become pregnant.
