Making Peace with the Crock Pot
I’ll admit it. I used to be somewhat of a “crock pot snob”. To the old me, the idea of throwing a bunch of ingredients in to a pot and letting it sit there all day didn’t count as actual cooking. And then I became a working mom and realized that in order for me to get a hot meal on the table before 9 pm, it would probably be in my (and my family’s) best interest if I made peace with the Rival Crock Pot that was gathering dust in the back of my cabinet. And now, almost 4 years later, I’m proud to say that I don’t know what in the world I would do if I couldn’t chuck a bunch of delicious stuff in a pot in the morning and 10 hours later walk in the door and have a wonderful smelling wholesome dinner ready to go. Seriously, what could be better than that?? Here are some of my favorite go to crock pot meals that never disappoint!
While I love to cook, I’ve never been too fond of having to cook first thing in the morning. So I’m a huge fan of “do ahead” breakfasts like Crock Pot Blueberry French Toast from Get Crocked. Amazing!
