So many evenings, so little time. So many mom’s and dad’s work full-time and have to come home to spend another hour on a decent meal. I have been trying to figure out ways to eat healthier, but not spend half my evening at home cooking. After all, I hate cooking, and I hate cleaning up after it even more.
My solution, the Crock Pot! I purchased a crock pot recipe book that was a combination of multiple books brought together. It has everything from beverages to desserts, healthy eating to game day favorites. I am excited because there are several healthy eating recipes that are easy to make.
I was looking at just getting the healthy version of the book, but then I decided, sometimes a girl needs a good comfort food of chili, lasagna or whatever comfort foods the bigger book had, for not much more money, so I got the full book. We are talking about 1400 slow cooker recipes, anything you can think of, it’s in this book. I really like how the index is organized, and the Light recipes are clearly labeled and easy to distinguish.
I will try out the recipes and share them here as I try them, and let you know what I think, any modifications I’ve made, and any tips and tricks I think you might want to know. After all, recipes are not a law of cooking for the most part, we will all change it up to our own tastes. Like for one, I am not too big on artificial seasonings, so I will probably exclude them, and try my own flavorings.
Note: I have decided to do this because hey, my most popular posts are all about food and recipes. And since I am not a big cooker, great meals that take minimal prep and baby sitting are just the right recipe for me and my lifestyle.
