I’m a huge fan of my slow cooker. It’s an incredibly versatile machine to have in the kitchen. The slow cooker is a great way to get meals done and not worry about cooking, just set it in the morning and by dinner time, you’ll have a healthy hearty meal. Some of my favorite things to make in my slow cooker are my baked pork chops and rice. It’s an easy one pot meal that makes clean up quick and easy. A slow cooker is almost mandatory when it comes to making beans because it allows for a long slow cook that make the beans not just tender but flavorful. The great thing about the slow cooker is its ability to work through tough cuts of meat and them juicy and tender, like beef heart. You can save money by purchasing tougher cuts of meat but having them prepped in the slow cooker will make it melt in your mouth. From soups to full dinners, I love my slow cooker!

Then I found a lighter, less fussy version, the kind that is Keep Reading
My family has only ever used one recipe to make Italian beef in the crockpot - yes, we always make in the slow cooker. Guests always ask for the recipe and are really surprised when they see how easy it is. It’s simply a matter of throwing three things into a crockpot and letting it cook all day. Keep Reading
This is one of those delightfully easy, but delicious dishes that help you take advantage of the ever low price of butternut squash. We’ve taken this Butternut ’n Apples dish to our church’s weekly potluck many times (we grew too much squash one year) and never brought home any leftovers. I guess Keep Reading
One of the things that has made my life a lot easier - especially since becoming a mother - is the crock pot. I absolutely love being able to throw food in in the morning and not have to worry about it the rest of the day. As a bonus, the house smells wonderful after a few hours, like I’m really Keep Reading
This recipe for slow cooker beef and broccoli has recently become one of my favorites. It’s so versatile! Having company for dinner?
