WELCOME

Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

OLD SETTLERS BEANS

1/2 lb bacon, fried, drained on paper towels, crumbled in large pieces
1 1/2 lb hamburger, browned and drained
1/2 bag frozen onion and peppers
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tbsp chili powder
1/4 ketchup
1 can pork & beans
1 can red kidney beans
1 can butter beans
2 tbsp mustard
1/2 cup hot sauce, optional

Combine all the above ingredients in a crockpot or slowcooker.  Place lid on the cooker and cook on low setting for 6 hours. 

Note: The hot sauce is optional, according to your taste.  If you want just a little heat cut the hot sauce back to a couple of tablespoons.
