It's not just a glorified pot roast machine! You can make SO much in the crockpot slow cooker! I like to think of it as an "easy bake oven" for grownups.
Have fun! Play! Life is too short to follow all the rules, anyway! :-)
Did you know you could make all these things in the crockpot? I like to try just about everything I can think of, at least once, in the slow cooker.
Mostly I have good success. Sometimes, though, some things are really better left to other cooking methods. These are the flops I've had along the way....
spoiler alert: don't try to make hardboiled eggs!! ;-)

Have Fun!! Happy Slow Cooking!!
if you have any other ideas I should try, let me know!
