I love that the dinner I cook in my crockpot doesn't mean I'm having to stand, making several steps to prepare dinner. Instead, all ingredients are put in the crockpot & that's IT! I no longer use it when I'm not home, however, b/c the crockpots these days seem to run hotter...food is cooked sooner....all with me hearing a familiar tap, spit & sputter, as the steam escapes. Sometimes, things actually get burnt, if I only follow the recipe directions. Lately, the recipes all seem to cook much faster. It's not just this one crockpot I'm using right now. It's also the one before that. Different brands, different sizes (one is 4 1/2 qt, another is 3 1/2 qt.) Not giving up on them, just using them with more supervision.

What I love about crock pots...

Where do I begin?
They're easy to use. Makes the house smell good all day (except sauerkraut- which I love but hate the smell). Most of all, I love that feeling I get when dinner is on in the morning and I don't have to worry about cooking later, especially since I have a toddler. Who knows if he'll let me do what I need to do.

I've had a couple freezer meal workshops and made a bunch of meals with some other ladies. It was fun and productive. Creating those ahead of time and having them ready to go in the crock pot makes me feel accomplished.

Self-control is knowing you can - but deciding you won't.

I love the way it makes the whole house smell delicious!
I also love the simplicity, and it's cheaper than going out and spending $$ on restaurant food.
My favorite thing of all is that I can cook delicious healthy meals from scratch and eat (or freeze for later) during the week something home made. So easy, too!!

Love coming home from work and dinner is already done! Some of the simplest meals made are the best.

You might be interested in the Sparkteam called "Freezer Queens". Their leader is REBADEE. They are very interesting.

The Crock Pot is a way for my family to eat out less and eat healthier with our busy schedules. Since I found information on a website blot about freezing meals ahead of time I block out a day every couple of months to prep them. Then, weekly we just figure out which ones we are going to make. It has changed everything!

I love crock pots, but don't use mine as often as I should because it takes so long for cook times. By the time I decide what to make, supper would never be done in time....

I am trying to get better.... trying but not really succeeding, so far....

It's convenient: just throw ingredients in and leave and it makes the house smell wonderful when it's been cooking for hours.
And, it's fun! emoticon

The best part of slow cookers are:
1. It's harder to burn things. It CAN be done, brust me, but it's a lot harder.
2. Easier clean-up, especially if you remember to pre-spay or oil or to cook in a slow cooker sack designed to be used and then thrown away.
3. Meats are mor tender -- sometimes too tender, but it's great for cooking cheap meats.
