All Hail, the Slow Cooker!

My big Crock-Pot

I have two slow cookers, both the name brand Crock-Pot.  I have the large one photographed above and I have a small one, shown below,  which I use during the holidays for mulling wine or for making larger batches of hot cocoa.

My small Crock-Pot

Crock-pots or slow cookers are most often used during the cooler months but that need not be the case.  I use mine year round.  It does not heat up the kitchen and there are many non-soup/stew recipes out there for the slow cooker.  Here are some good recipe sources:

This gets you recipes straight from the source.  I like this site because it narrows down the recipes by the size Crock-pot/slow cooker that you own.  When it comes to Crock-Pot/Slow Cooker recipes, size matters.  

This blog is devoted to nearly continuous crock potty goodness.  I've made a couple of her recipes and they always work out well.  

Another year long slow cooking blog.  

What?  Self promotion is good for the soul

  1. I have two slow cookers as well and I'm starting to feel like it's not enough! Which is funny because I always looked at those three-Crock-Pots-all-in-one things as somewhat of a joke ... but the fact is, I would probably use the heck out of one. Love my Crock Pots.
