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.

CHANGING FROM CONVENTIONAL TO SLOW COOKER
If you have a favorite recipe that you would like to make in your slow cooker, here are some time guidelines to use.
If the recipe says: Cook in a slow cooker
15 to 30 minutes 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 hours high or 4 - 8 hours low
35 to 40 minutes 3 - 4 hours high or 6 - 8 hours low
50 min to 3 hours 4 - 6 hours high or 8 - 18 hours low
Note almost all combinations of meat and vegetable dishes need at least 8 hours when cooked on low.
