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.

CRANBERRY STUFFED APPLES
5 medium apples
1/3 cup fresh or frozen cranberries, thawed and chopped
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, optional
Core apples, leaving bottoms intact. Peel top third of each apple; place in a 5-qt. slow cooker. Combine the cranberries, brown sugar, walnuts, cinnamon and nutmeg; spoon into apples.
Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours or until apples are tender. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream if desired.
