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.

REHEATING LEFTOVERS IN A CROCKPOT OR SLOW COOKER
Slow cookers/crockpots can keep food warm up to 2 hours after turning off. But if you are planning to reheat food that has been refrigerated, these cookers are not recommended. This is a safety issue as it takes the cookers too long to reach a safe temperature. Reheat on stovetop or in microwave and then transfer to the cooker to keep if desired.
