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.

RHUBARB-STRAWBERRY TOPPED LEMON MINI TARTS

2 bags (1-lb each) frozen rhubard, thawed and drained
1 jar (12-oz) strawberry preserves
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup quick tapioca
juice of half a lemon
1/4 cup water

Spread rhubard in the bottom of a crockpot or slow cooker.

In a small mixing bowl combine the preserves, sugar, tapioca, lemon juice, and water; stir to blend together well.  Pour the mixture over the rhubarb stirring together thoroughly.

Place lid on cooker and cook on high for approximately 2 hours until tender and thickened.  Remove from heating element and allow to cool down.

While the topping cooks, make the lemon tarlets and allow to chill for a couple of hours or until set.

Tartlets:
8 mini graham cracker tart shells
2 (4-serving size) pkgs instant lemon-flavored pudding mix

Make the pudding according to package directions. Divide evenly into the tart shells.  Refrigerate for 2 hours or until set.

To serve, remove chilled tarts from refrigerator and top with the rhubarb mixture.
