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.

USING HERBS IN YOUR CROCK POT/SLOW COOKER

Did you know that when you add herbs to foods you cook in a slow cooker makes a difference?  Dried herbs should be added at the beginning of the cooking time but most fresh herbs should be added near or at the end of cooking time.  When fresh herbs are added at the beginning they will lose not only their color but also their flavor by the end of the long cooking time used in slow cookers.  There is one exception to the fresh herb rule and that is rosemary.  Rosemary can withstand the long hours of slow cooking and may be added in the beginning.
