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.

BEEF AND MUSHROOM DINNER

2 cups sliced carrots, fresh or frozen
1 box (6-oz) long-grain and wild rice
2 cans (14-oz each) beef broth

Place the stew meat in a large bowl; sprinkle with the salt, pepper and garlic tossing to coat well.
