Cooking It Crockpot Style!

With the chilly weather and shorter days of Winter comes the need for something easy, warm, and hearty for dinner.  Enter the crock-pot/slow cooker.  Whatever name it goes by at your house, it should be a staple among your go-to kitchen gadgets and cook wear.  Why?...you may ask.

Using a crock-pot to cook with will simplify your life.  Yes, I realize they are big and bulky and older models are hard to clean.  But really, isn't that what children are for?  Whether you are a working woman on the go or stay at home mom, whether you have a houseful of hungry heads to feed or it's just you, using a crock-pot can save you time and money.

You can assemble your ingredients the night before, or first thing in the morning, load them into the crock-pot, turn it on, and go!  You don't have to worry that your food will get over done, under cooked, or cold.  The crock-pot works it's magic while you are off at the office, or home-schooling in the next room.

Crock-Pot Potato Soup
I used to avoid using a crock-pot because I had an older one and the actually "pot" was not removable.  So I had to stick the whole thing in the sink to wash it up.  Not fun.  Then, my mother-in-law took pity on me and bought me one for Christmas.  Ahhh.  It is a wonderful thing.

I have included some totally tasty crock-pot recipes that you might not have thought of.  Don't forget that you can freeze foods cooked in the crock-pot, if you happen to be cooking for one or two people.

Enjoy!  Remember, we love feedback and photos!
