I love to cook. Some years ago, I grew interested when I started to date my second wife, Debbie. Much of our time together for years was spent cooking wonderful meals for friends and families in our wonderful kitchen in Greenwich Village.

Copper and cast iron pots and pans were everywhere. Henkel knives. Waterford china. Beautiful silverware. It was a rotating gourmet feast for one and all.

Unfortunately, our marriage did not last (well, fortunately, it didn’t because I never would have met my wife, Sharon, and our son, Jack) and we had to divide up our 9 book cases of cookbooks and all of our cooking apparatus. I kept very little except memories and one of those memories was the ease and wonder of using a crockpot to cook.

Debbie would make a simple German pork chop recipe in our slow cooker that included sauerkraut, Kitchen Bouquet and caraway seeds cooked slowly for most of a day. Turn on, wait and eat.

It was so good and we have it with a Gewürztraminer wine during cold winters and feel comfortable with all in the world.

Over the years, I started to accumulate ideas for how to cook better. These are 101 of them. I hope you find them helpful.
