Does anybody *do* crock pot/slow cooking?
Back in the day, let's say in the late 70's, I used to have a crock pot and tried to use it. To be honest, I was never thrilled with it. To me, it was small, hard to clean and everything had about the consistency of dog food. Well, with the new and improved slow cookers that are available now, I'm trying again. I bought a decent slow cooker last year (or maybe the year before?) and I couple of dinners have turned out nice. I'd like to expand my use of it, but I really don't know where to start. Do any of you have any suggestions? If you have a favorite site or a favorite cookbook, I'd love to hear about it.
I think using a slow cooker could save electricity, keep the kitchen cooler in the summertime, and even help me be more organized and ready for dinner, once school starts again... and give me just a little more time to play with my quilting. :o)
