One thing I rely on often, especially during the colder months, is my Crock-Pot. I love whipping up some honest to goodness comfort food, like chicken and dumplings, beef stew, or a nice, hearty chili. Something about a steaming bowl of slow-cooked deliciousness really warms the body and soul when the weather turns bitterly cold. I love wrapping myself up in a blanket with a nice hot bowl of stew when it's snowing and just watching the snowflakes dance outside the window.
Of course my Crock-Pot comes in handy other times, too. As the mom of a teenager and 2 preschool aged kids, I stay quite busy. Some days, my schedule is packed full of errands, conferences, and activities. Slow-cooking takes the hassle and time out of meal preparation. I literally just throw everything into my trusty Crock-Pot, set it, and forget it. By dinner time, the house smells amazing and our food is perfectly cooked and ready to eat. I especially love a corned beef brisket and potatoes from the Crock-Pot. (I skip the cabbage since to me, it smells like dirty socks!)
Recently, I received an assortment of Crock-Pot Seasoning Mixes to try for myself. I have to admit, my expectations weren't very high, since I do mostly from-scratch cooking. I have never been a big fan of prepackaged seasoning mixes. However, I do love the convenience of it, and Crock-Pot is a name I trust, so I decided to give it a whirl.
I would definitely recommend Crock-Pot Seasoning Mixes to amateur cooks and seasoned pros alike. We all need a day off from cooking once in awhile, and these seasoning mixes deliver hearty, delicious meals with very minimal time or effort.
