I'm Karen, a SAHM trying to answer one of life's most mysterious questions...what is for dinner?
In January 2009, I set out on an interesting journey. I decided to see if I could cook 365 different slow cooker recipes in 365 days. I did it without any repeats! I have done everything from main dishes, sides, desserts, breakfasts and breads. I rate all the recipes and let you know if they're worth cooking up. Since finishing my project I've been able to do a lot of media appearances and I've put together a cookbook of all my best recipes. I also continue to update my blog a few times a week with new and improved slow cooker recipes.
The slow cooker is a wonderful appliance that can give you the freedom to cook dinner at any time but dinner time (which is often the most busy and crazy time of the day). It frees your mind so you don't have to think "what am I going to make for dinner" all day long. Because my blog is all about slow cooking, it's all about recipes that are (hopefully) 1. Easy 2. Tasty 3. Budget-friendly. Also, I am not a chef. I'm the anti-chef. I have a life other than cooking dinner...so I try to make my recipes something that you can put together in a few minutes (with as few dishes to clean up as possible). I am also not a photographer or a food stylist. I try to make the things I'm photographing look nice but, give me a break, I'm starving and I'm not going to spend an hour trying to make things look perfect. If you want to look at beautiful pictures of food, this is not necessarily the best blog to look at. I'm about practical and functional, functional and practical!!!
So come follow me on my slow cooking adventures and get some great recipes and slow cooker tips in the meantime.
