Almost everyone I know owns a slow cooker, but my question to them is “Do you actually use it?” I now own 2 slow cookers because these kitchen staples have changed my life, and I would be remiss if I did not shout it from the mountaintop. Well, I’m afraid of heights, so blogging about it will have to suffice. I first experienced the wonder that is slow cooking when I made a slow cooker lasagna recipe that I came across on FB. It looked delicious, and I love lasagna (even the frozen kind), so I thought I’d give a shot. I did, and it was easy, and what’s more, it was well received by all. That was back in December. I posted a pic of it on FB, and I could tell by some of the comments that people were salivating over my yummy dish. Hence, the idea was hatched, and #slowcookersaturday was born. I have successfully completed 7 straight #slowcookersaturday (s), and I have to say that my fear of trying something new has waned, and that meal planning has become a healthy habit.
My slow cooker-infrequently used- sat in my cabinet for the first 6 years of my marriage, but now that it has been removed, it has been redeemed, and now holds the title as my favorite cooking tool.
