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.

1/4 tsp freshly ground black peppr
1 large yellow onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped

Drain the soaked black-eyed peas and place in the crockpot or slow cooker.  Top the beans with the ham hocks.  Cover with the water and add the salt, pepper, onion, and celery.  Place the lid on the cooker and cook on high 1 to 2 hours then lower heat to low and cook for 8 hours.
