I Love My Crock Pot

I finally bought a crock pot! I've wanted one for ages but wasn't sure if I'd use it very often. Our kitchen is so tiny and I don't have room for extra appliances. But I went ahead and bought it, and I love it. I use it all the time. This is a sampling of some of the things I've made in the crock pot in the last few weeks.

I've made several types of curries, soups, stews, lots of bean recipes, steamed vegetables, and even bread pudding. My crock pot rocks!

I can recommend two good crock pot cookbooks:

Gourmet Vegetarian Slow Cooker

and Fresh From the Vegetarian Slow Cooker

If you have a crock pot and you're not using it, now's the perfect time. As the weather gets warmer you can avoid heating up your kitchen, and make some really yummy food. So start experimenting!



  1. Good idea! I have a vintage crock pot, but have never been crazy about the results. I even have the second book you mentioned...maybe I will give it another go. Glad you are loving yours!! Peace, Stephanie

  2. I'm glad you bought one and are enjoying it! I use mine a lot more than I did in the beginning. I love cooking dried beans in it!
