I love my crock pot. I'm mentioned that time and time again. I use it at least once a week. One of my favorite sites is A Year of Slow Cooking by Stephanie O'Dea. She is the crockpot lady. The queen of the slow cooker. I was thrilled when she published her first book Make It Fast, Cook It Slow. I bought it right away. I was even more tickled when her second book, More Make It Fast, Cook It Slow came out! Yup, a whole book full of more awesome slow cooker recipes!
She has her recipes broken up into 3 different sections. $7 and under, $10 and under & $15 and under. The meals are simple, easy to prepare and delicious! I've already bookmarked many recipes that I will make soon. Even at $15 and under, that is WAY cheaper than going out to eat.
If you are eating a Gluten Free diet, all of her recipes are gluten free. I learned from her blog that one of her family members has celiac disease her family agreed for everyone in the family to go gluten free. How cool is that!
I have a ton of recipes bookmarked to make already, the first one that I made was the Leftover Breakfast Casserole. This was perfect as I had a bunch of stuff in the frig to use up. Seriously, start with hash browns and eggs and you can add pretty much whatever else you'd like to. Any kind of veggies and meat. I can see where it would be different every time you make it.
This cooked perfectly and was delicious! Everyone loved it! I would completely recommend this book to anyone and everyone. I also have her first book which is equally as awesome!
