A few months ago, one of my blogger friends (I think it was Karyn, it was Karyn or Becky for sure!!) was asking about easier ways to cook. I have been thinking about trying to eat healthier/better this year- and even more about things to cook when Little T finally arrives (sometime, anytime, hopefully soon!!!). This is NOT a full blown resolution -- I rarely succeed at those. But for those of you that were/are single for a period of time OR regularly eat alone due to schedules, etc. you probably know how difficult it is to cook for just one.
My tip to Karyn (I'm almost sure that it was Kar, but I am too lazy today to go searching through the archives... horrible I know) was my good friend, the crock-pot. I realized that I should probably take my own advice and maybe use the crock-pot more. It's great for clean-up, (especially when you use crock-pot liners!!) and it also helps me with my age old problem -- not planning ahead for dinner and then suddenly having to come up with something at the last minute, which typically turns out not so healthy.
While checking facebook this morning for my suddenly quiet friend Sarah, I came across this message for a blog of a lady who apparently cooked in her crock-pot EVERYDAY in 2008. So while, I am a little late to her party, I'll gladly snoop around and post this for everyone. I read a little here and there, she tries to cook gluten free as much as possible -- but it really looks like she uses "normal" ingredients for the most part. She apparently also made it on the Rachel Ray Show, who I love, but can't stand her voice and mannerisms, so I never watch. (I know, doesn't make sense) http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/ Enjoy!
Keeping with Karyn's question (and I'll feel really dumb if it was Becky and NOT Karyn!) - what do you do to cook everyday? Martha Stewart answer are NOT accepted :)
