35 Crock Pot Recipes

35 Crock Pot Recipes - - - > http://www.theroastedroot.net

Have you been spying slow cooker and crock pot recipes across the intergalacticweb? Have you wondered to yourself what the difference is between a slow cooker and a crock pot and whether you need one or the other or both? Great news! I just googled “difference between slow cooker and crock pot.” Yeeeeah, they’re the same thing. You knew this. I didn’t. Because I have always referred to my slow cooker as crock pot (err…crock pot as crock pot?), I was pretty psyched to find I didn’t need to purchase an extra kitchen appliance for the sake of keeping up with the Joneses.

Through the fall and winter months, I lean on my crock pot hard. The minimal prep time and the deep slow cooked flavors make crocking one of my favorite activities. Do I feel like I’m cheating the system each and every time I make a meal in the crock pot? I used to, but then I realized happiness trumps guilt each and every time.

I made a recipe roundup which includes meals, sauces AND desserts from all over the web for your crocking enjoyment. Let’s be happy! Let’s crock.
