I’m not going to pretend I know anything about cooking. One hundred percent of the time, I follow other people’s recipes — to the letter — because I don’t know how or why certain ingredients go together, and I’m afraid of screwing up a perfectly good meal by messing with the balance.
That’s not to say I haven’t taken a little bit of a walk on the wild side when it comes to cookery.
My favorite kitchen appliance is my Crock Pot. And while there are plenty of cookbooks and blogs and websites that cater specifically to my love of slow-cooked food, there are way more cookbooks and websites and blogs for non-slow-cooked food. It would be a shame to miss out on so much deliciousness just because the recipe is not Crock-friendly! So I recently began adjusting recipes for slow-cooker usage.
