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.

CROCK POT HERB BREAD

This is another recipe from a favorite blogger.

Crock Pot Herb Bread

If you have been following me for a while, you KNOW how much I love my crockpots! I saw this and knew I would have to try this.  We all liked it--thought it would make a great Thanksgiving stuffing bread, too.  I don't have a round crockpot anymore, so used a 4 qt oval.  Very tasty.  I used a toothpick to prop the lid open.
