Crock-Pot Your Way to Happiness

Most people are surprised to find out that I use my crock-pot 5+ days/week. "How many times a week can you eat brisket??"

Confession: I've never cooked a brisket. I don't even like brisket. I've converted lots of great recipes into crock-pot recipes to make my life easier.

What I love about crock-pot cooking:
  1. I never have to stop what I'm doing at 4:30 in order to start cooking dinner.

  2. Dinner is ALWAYS ready when hubby gets home.

  3. The house smells delicious all day.

  4. The meat is always perfectly tender.

  5. The crock-pot has made me a good cook! (Secret: After 10 years of marriage, Kyle told me, "You've become a really good cook!")

Here are some of our favorite recipes.

Please share some of your recipes. I love to use my crockpot but only have a couple handful of recipes. I have four children coming home from Liberia and need ways to make life simplier.

By the way I love your blog.

I'm so excited to have found your blog again. My computer crashed a few weeks ago and I lost all my bookmarks.

I'm going to try one of your crockpot recipes later this week! I really need some, as I hardly ever use it!

Thanks for the recipes. I need some new Crockpot recipes. I laughed at the post about carrots because I told my children that "carrots make them strong". I think they think it has a supernatural ability. :)
