A Year of Crockpotting?

As I close this week of crock pot recipes, I wanted to share with you one of my favorite food blogs for crock pot ideas.  Stephanie decided to spend a whole year cooking all of her family's dinner in the crock pot.  (I can't even begin to image trying that!) 

She shared all of her recipes and experiences on her blog A Year of Slow Cooking.
I don't know how she came up with so many different recipes, but can't wait to try some of them out.

Did you know that you could make fried rice in your slow cooker?  I didn't. This is probably one of my most favoritest meals in the whole world and I can't wait to try it.  (We're actually going to give it a go tonight for dinner!)  

Dear Hubby LOVES his applesauce.  He and The Perfectionist eat it every night after dinner.  I guess it's like Paul Blart "Mall Cop" said it just kinda fills the cracks in the heart...or in this case the stomach.  Someday I'm going to give this Applesauce Chicken recipe a go.

Since we are still Texans at heart, this Taco soup should be a big hit with everyone in my family.  I can't wait to try it on a crisp fall Saturday after being at the boys' football games all day.  That's my idea of perfection!

If you are into Slow cooking even an itsy, bitsy bit, I HIGHLY recommend checking out Stephanie's blog A Year of Slow Cooking. You'll find yourself printing and pinning a TON of yummy crock pot recipes!


  1. She also has 2 crockpot cookbooks - I have them both and have bought copies to give as gifts. The recipes are easy, no difficult-to-find ingredients, and a good variety of dishes.
