Cover and cook on low 6 to 8 hours, or until the vegetables are tender. Add spinach, stir and continue cooking just until wilted, approximately 5 minutes. Serve and enjoy! Tip: If you prefer a thicker stew, after 5 hours of cooking, simply remove 1 cup of soup, along with ingredients, mash ingredients with a fork, return to the slow cooker, stir and continue cooking 1 to 3 hours. Stovetop Method:(I do the stove top method) Follow the same instructions above for prep, cover, and simmer until veggies are tender, approximately 2 hour. Stir every 15 minutes to prevent sticking. Add spinach at the end of cooking time, remove from heat, cover and allow spinach to wilt before serving
I have been MIA from the baked group lately! Thought that I would get back into the swing of things with the easy recipe. I assume these are called Bale bars because they resemble bales of hay? Whatever! Well, they were easy and there was no baking involved...always feel like I am cheating when I don't have to bake! Just had to do some chopping, melting, pressing and chilling. Easy Peasy! Peanuts and pretzels are covered with a white chocolate, caramel, peanut butter mixture then pressed into a pan and chilled until firm. I had extra white chocolate so I did a little drizzle.
I had the same problem some of the other bakers did....my bars were very crumbly. I don't know if it is because I halved the recipe and didn't calculate right? Not really sure. But I think that maybe the recipe has too much crunchy stuff and not enough sticky stuff. They look alright and I tasted a small corner and they taste very peanut buttery. We will see what the rest of the family thinks!
