Slow Cooking

I have been wanting a slow cooker for a while now and this year I was lucky enough to get one from santa. The first recipe I tried out was Tofu in Red Pepper Cream Sauce from Food52.
I was happy with the outcome but I would definitely change up a few things next time I make this, and I will likely make it again. The recipe has you simmer the sauce after blending, after that you add the tofu. I want to try adding the tofu while it slow cooks, maybe not cubing it but putting in bigger pieces so you can easily remove it from the peppers before blending them. I just wanted the tofu to absorb more of the flavor of the sauce. I'm guessing when I have my leftovers tomorrow the tofu will be perfectly seasoned after sitting in that sauce all night.
This would be better with more than just tofu -- roasted potatoes, onions, and even chicken would all be great with this sauce. Definitely worth trying if it sounds good to you. Oh and I already love my slow cooker, can't wait to try more recipes out.
