Many of you out there are very passionate about your slow cookers. Some of you even run entire blogs dedicate to rocking the crock-pot. I am clearly missing something.
I am of the opinion that they are perfectly useful to keep stuff warm and super handy for holding nacho cheese at parties, but not as a great culinary cooking device. My experience w/ crock pot food is that it has been somewhere between truly awful to merely edible, but never have I eaten anything made from a crock pot that I would rave about.
However, I struggle with finding the time to make dinner when the kids are home after school. Especially since many days, I am driving them around and miles from my kitchen. In desperation, I have given in and finally bought a slow cooker.
For my first attempt I made 6 Sisters Cashew Chicken. The chicken had a great texture, but it was way to salty (my husband wouldn't eat it).
Do you have any amazing slow cooker recipes? Then please share by either linking them up or leaving them in the comments. Pretty please.
