Growing up, I wasn't interested in cooking. Baking during the holiday season is fun, but a Food Network show isn't in my near future. But avoiding the preparation of food is tough when your fiance is an amazing cook. And after almost six years together, his enthusiasm and a few of his culinary skills have rubbed off on me.
Enter the crock pot, a beautiful machine that has yanked me from the "I don't cook" category. It doesn't get much easier than throwing in the ingredients and letting them sit all day, yet there's still the satisfaction of making a yummy meal. And not to mention the delicious smells.
Below is one of my fave slow cooker recipes from SparkRecipes. We use the handy (and free) iPhone app a few times a week to make healthy and tasty meals. Enjoy!
