Special note about all crock pot recipes—Cooking with a crock pot is a fun and easy way to prepare endless varieties of delicious meals. It is also more healthy than many alternate cooking methods. Contrary to common assumptions, the crock pot IS NOT just for soups, stews or roasts. There are amazingly creative people out there who have come up with very clever ways to cook almost anything in one single crock pot, all at the same time. Everything from “steak and baked potatoes with corn on the cob”, to lasagna, to sweet and sour pork, to excellent taco fillings. You can also pick a few dinner recipes, put all the RAW ingredients in a gallon freezer back, seal out the air and freeze them so you can toss them in the crock pot any day of the week.
