Slow Cooker Love

Posted on January 6, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized |

I made THE most delicious pork roast the other night for dinner, seriously, THE most delicious ever! and almost as good as the taste was that it was nearly effortless on my part to pull off this amazing meal for my family because of one of my most favorite kitchen tools ever… my slow cooker ( or crock pot, whatever it is you wanna call it!).

It had actually been a long time since id used my slow cooker and I have no idea why, because each and every time I use it I fall more in love with it! It makes preparing delicious meals so very easy, and when it comes time to clean up (my least favorite part of cooking) there is only 1 cookware piece to clean and that is if you didn’t use a crock pot liner, another item that I love!

If you are a busy mom like me, or even just a lazy one (also like me), then the slow cooker can be a life saver, freeing up your time so you don’t burn it all up slaving over a hot stove or washing multiple pots and pan in addition to all your other dirty dishes.

My roast was so easy its ridiculous… just choose your roast of choice, make sure its defrosted and plop it in the cooker, salt and pepper it, add about a bottle of BBQ sauce of your choice, put the lid on, turn it to high and forget it for the next 4 to 6 hours!  Seriously, does it get much easier than that to prepare a fresh, delicious, home made meal for your loved ones? I think not!

Also, if you are at a loss for a variety of recipes to prepare in your slow cooker, check out this amazing blog that was written by a mom who used her crock pot EVERY day for an entire year! I love how she presents the recipes, she lists the ingredients AND shows a picture of them, and she gives a verdict of how her family liked the meal…I love this blog SO much!  She has even written a book which id love to have in my cookbook collection. 

Also… don’t forget about the Pantry Challenge! Get in those pantrys and clean them out, throw out all the old expired food, throw out all the junk food that’s bad for you, use up all those goodies that are hiding on those back shelves! I’m happy to report I found FOUR jars of spaghetti sauce that I didn’t know I had, which is great because ive got more spaghetti noodles than I know what to do with. I guess im off to cook dinner now… Spaghetti & Meatballs 🙂

What a fantastic endeavor!
best of luck to you and your family. Welcome to the blogosphere!


I, as well, love my slow cooker. Another thing you could do with roast is to put a jar of salse in it, cook on high for 4-6 hours, then make eggs medium sized noodles, mix together and it is awesome. I add just a bit of water in the crockpot as well.
