Crock Pot Recommendations

I am really enjoying cooking with my Crock Pot. It's wonderful to pop everything together around lunch time, set it on it's way and not have to think about food again until it's time to feed the family! I'm able to get on and do other things - things that appeal to my creative side ;) 

With all this Crock Pot cooking we are eating the most delicious new-to-us meals using recipes that I have pinned from Pinterest. I thought I would share two of my families 'hits' from this past week.

So tasty and the meatballs so lovely and tender. This recipe does not call for you to brown the meatballs before hand but I chose to do so anyway. With all the tomato that the recipe called for I was sure it was going to be very tart, but it wasn't. Instead this dish had an authentic Italian taste.

On Sunday I did a slow cooked Pork Loin Roast.

Oh my goodness! Was this ever tasty! So tender and so delicious! I used the liquid which was left to make a gravy by adding a little red wine and cornflour to thicken. I had so much gravy that we were able to use what was left on Monday night to go with our Bangers and Mash.

On the menu tonight...

Slow Cooker Chicken and Sweet Potato Korma - except I'm going to use ordinary potatoes as I don't have and sweet potato's in the house - adapt and change :) I'll serve it with yellow rice, vegetables and poppadoms.

I'll be sure to let you know the verdict on the last recipe, I'm pretty sure it's going to be yummy :)


  1. Wow, impressive, I didn't know you could cook a joint of meat in a crock pot. The meatballs look delicious.

  2. Hi! I use my Crock Pot all the time. I have a Pintrest board you may want to see for some ideas: http://www.pinterest.com/ellenbarski/freezer-and-crock-pot-meals/ Using the Crock Pot saves me time and energy (if I have prepped beforehand) and it even cooks frozen things like a dream -- no defrosting necessary! I've been enjoying your blog for a while now. As an American Anglophile (one of THOSE!), I love reading English blogs! Makes me miss England more, but it's worth it.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I appreciate each and every one left for me.
