I always dreaded class participation announcements from teachers, so it's ironic that I approach this post in this particular manner.
So class, in order to achieve an 'A' and keep up that high GPA you've been working so hard towards, I need your help. I am a competent cook. Some would even say I'm a pretty good cook. But no matter, I know that given the tools and ingredients I can follow just about any recipe and pull it off UNLESS it uses a crockpot. I don't know why, but I cannot cook successfully in a crockpot unless I'm just making marinara. I've tried different size crockpots, different recipes from different people, etc. But all to no avail. Therefore, your assignment is to share with me (via comments) your favorite no-fail crockpot dish. Keep in mind that I'm cooking healthy balanced meals (so no chili-con-queso, my friends!). I have a Rival 5 1/2 qt crockpot with low and high settings, nothing fancy. You get extra points if you have a cookbook recommendation that is healthy and crockpot driven.
Bring it on. Help me conquer the crockpot. If you share a recipe with me and it's successful enough for me to post on my blog, I'll also be sending you a copy of one of my very favorite cookbooks....so help me use my crockpot ( and make sure there's an email I can contact you by if you are the winner)!
