Apparently, many others feel the same adoration and excitement about this fabulous piece of culinary gadgetry. My new favorite blog belongs to the Crockpot lady. She decided to use a crockpot every single day for a year. She could quite possibly be one of my new heroes. Check our her site if you want to breath some new life into your cooking--and make your life easier in the process. She has it all--appetizers, desserts, entrees...it's just a wealth of dump it and let it go cooking.
I just used my crockpot this weekend to make homemade applesauce. 8 apples, 3/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup of water, 1/2 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice and a few hours later I had warm chunky applesauce. It was such a great comfort food warm, then cold and even served over ice cream. I think it lasted less than 48 hours, but it was so easy...I'm making some more tonight while I sleep. God bless whoever invented the crockpot.
