No dish is quite as soothing as a hearty bowl of chicken noodle soup. A slow cooker could not make the road to comfort food any easier: Simply toss in the ingredients, switch it on, and then walk away. You'll savor this soup, seasoned with fresh parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme, and a bay leaf. We love old-fashioned, wide egg noodles for this recipe. To make sure they aren't mushy and overcooked, don't leave them in the slow cooker for more than 10 minutes. Stir in a little lemon juice for a bite of citrus, which works wonders with the subtle flavors of the chicken soup, and enjoy.

Pork rib pieces are the savory meat that makes this Pork-and-Black Bean Chili so delicious. Then, we add in fresh tomatillos. These look like small green tomatoes wrapped in a thin papery skin. Remove this skin, and rinse them before chopping. If you can't find them fresh, look for them canned on the Latin aisle at the grocery. Once it is all ready, the pork, tomatillos, and some spicy poblano peppers are set to simmer for eight hours until everything has cooked to a rich and tender perfection. This is how a chili should be: spicy, savory, and delicious. Grab a spoon and savor every bite.
