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.

SWEET & SOUR PORK OVER NOODLES

2 lb pork shoulder for stew, cut into bite-size pieces
1/4 tsp salt

1 large yellow onion, peeled and sliced thin
1 large green bell pepper, cored, seeded, sliced

3 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp rice vinegar
