All Things Crock Pot

While googling how to make Pumpkin Spiced Latte's I found this great Blog

A Year of SlowCooking - it's great for all of us who love to use the crock pot.

I've linked a few I would like to try:

A couple of you asked about my Chicken Catchatori from Monday here's the run down.

While a lot of you had off on Monday I had to work but was able to work from home so that made working just fine for me. Ok sorry back to the catchatori....

Because I decided to workout rather then prep dinner (and or I forgot) I had to brown the chicken on the stove before I put it in the crockpot. I then cut up one red and green pepper and an onion. I used a jar and a half of pasta sauce which was just enough. I cut up the chicken placed it with the sauce and veggies, we also added fresh basil from the garden which may be one of our last time we'll be able to use it for the year and a little parm. I let it cook for about 4 hours, it was pretty good, easy and quick. If I was to prep it in the morning I would definitely have left it on low all day, I don't have a problem letting it cook while I'm not home.

I'll keep you posted if I make any of the above recipes!

There might just be an easier way to make the pumpkin spice latte...The Fresh Market sells pumpkin spice coffee (and it looks like there might be a newish FM in a Boston suburb). And if you can't get to one, I'd be happy to mail some off to you.

You're right, it does seem a little much and because of that I know myself too well I wouldn't end up trying it out.

I'll google FM to see where they are located, if i can't find one I'll let you know. Thanks for the tip!!

Thanks for sharing!

My chicken in the crockpot was bleh this week. I have to figure out how to make it tastier.

Have a great weekend!

The crock pot is my savior during the week! I second Slack, the pumpkin spice coffee at the Fresh Market is very good! I grew up in Greensboro, where Fresh Market originated. It has been fun to watch them grow and expand.

Enjoy your weekend!

I have to say that my crock-pot is also my friend during the week. Do you know you can make baked potatoes in the crock-pot too? Wrap them in tinfoil and put them in the crock-pot on low? Works great especially if you are just having a baked potato bar for dinner :)

LOVE crock pot recipes. Fast, easy and usually not that much to clean up.
