“This summer, I was given a cookbook called the "125 Best Vegetarian Slow Cooker Recipes" Now that I HAVE a slow cooker, unearthed from my mothers basement, I can actually try all the great recipes in my new book. A torta is a type of layered casserole, somewhat similar to an enchilada, but with out all the rolling.”
