I like to make crockpot corn. You put frozen corn, cream cheese and some sugar and let it cook until the cream cheese has melted.

renee said...

Roast beef in the crock pot is the best!! But you have to rub on onion soup and brown it just a couple minutes before putting in the crock pot. Really got to try it amazing what that onion soup does to the flavor of that roast. Yummy!!! have a blessed day~ hugs Renee

sisjulie1 said...

Would love a chance at some Copics! That would probably start another "gotta buy" list.

Put a round steak in your crockpot with a can of cream of mushroom soup, a package of brown gravy mix and two cups of water. I put the meat in last after I stir up the liquids. Cook all day for fall apart meat and gravy that goes great with mashed potatoes and corn.

SPT said...

I make pulled pork BBQ in the crockpot. Slice up onions and put in bottom of crockpot. Salt and pepper a pork roast put on top of the onions. Pour BBQ sauce on top. Slow cook for 8 hours. Shred the pork. Serve as sandwiches with the cooked onions and extra sauce.

I love to make a Sunday roast in the crockpot. You can even cook it from frozen. Just put your roast in the crockpot top with some sliced red onions and a family size cream of mushroom soup. If it is frozen start cooking it at 10 the night before on low and let it cook until 5 or if it is thawed you can start it at 8 in the morning and cook until 5. It is so tender and just falls apart.

Lisa Hjulberg said...

Hi Cami! I wish I could offer up a good recipe, but I'm allergic to cooking. Just kidding! But, honestly, my husband does most of the cooking for us lately. I will, however, take a look at recipes people leave you and maybe recommend one or two to Paul! Thanks for a chance to win... Lisa

I made some peanut butter granola bars today from a recipe I tweaked big time to satisfy my picky eaters and they loved them. Recipe is really long, but easy. If you want it, just let me know.

Janet said...

I too, love my crockpot. It's so easy to use. I just throw in any type of meat, and add some kind of liquid and voila! supper.

Thanks for sharing.

Debbie N. said...

I just made beans with ham and vegetables in my crockpot. I used left over ham and hamhock frozen from Christmas. It was good but I made sure it was made on a night that my husband didn't have to work the next day. Next time I'll make a beef stew. YUM!! I love my crockpot but should use it more often. Thanks for the chance to win. I love your blog.

I like to make BBQ pork ribs in the crockpot. You brown some boneless ribs in the crockpot, throw in a sliced onion and BBQ sauce.

Tami said...

Great candy! I like to make crockpot salsa chicken. Boneless skinless chicken breasts and put a jar of salsa over it (along with black beans) and put it on high for 6-8 hours or low 8-10 hours. YUMMY! I like to eat it with brown rice. You can also add shredded cheddar cheese.

Susan said...

Great Blog Candy. I don't have any copic markers yet so I am definetly putting my name in for this drawing. Sorry...I'm not much of a cook so I won't be leaving you any cooking tips. LOL
Thanks for the chance.

Anonymous said...

I like to Crockpot Cook, but I don't really have any specific recipes except...put a little of this with that and what do you get recipes....Mostly, I make chili or soup in my crock pot....if you make the real deal homemade chili with dried beans...you have to prep the beans by boiling them ahead of time...which I do in a mixture of beef boullion and chili powder..oh and garlic and salt.... bring to boil and simmer for about 1-1/2 hours...IF you don't cook the beans...when you throw them in your crockpot with tomatoes, the acid in the tomatoes will not let the beans soften....I know this from experience!!!! Anyhow, after you prep your beans....put in crockpot rest of ingredients: fried ground beef...diced onion, canned tomatoes, and whatever secret ingredient you want...I like to add brown sugar...put your beans with the broth in...turn on low and at the end of the day....yum..

This is not necessarily a quick meal to put in the crockpot...but...it's worth the morning prep to have it nice and savory by the end of the day!

Theresa said...

My sister told me about this easy dish. Just take an entire bag of frozen hashbrowns. Mix it with one can Cream Of Celery soup, shredded cheddar cheese, and diced ham. Bake it at 350 for a good long while. I have started adding a small amount of shredded onion, too. Yummy, but bad for you.

Jana Weaver said...

Oooohhhh...Copics! I'm making dinner right now, but it's just a beef roast from Trader joes with some pasta (my crazy family doesn't eat potatoes...can you believe it?) and some brocolli. No recipes tonight.

sandie994 said...

1 cup diced carrots
1 cup diced celery
1 cup onions

1 8 oz philadelphia cheam cheese

Cover and bring to a full boil, reduce heat, remove lid and stir with a wooden spoon and watch carefully until vegetables are tender--turn off heat and while it is still very hot--not boiling. add 8 oz block of cream cheese cut up in small pieces, stir until it is melted. enjoy!!

Gabriela said...

Recipes? As in culinary? No fair! I don't cook! But I did spy my DH tossing chicken pieces into the crock pot the other day, dumped a whole bottle of BBQ sauce over said chicken, and set the crock pot to LOW for 8 or 9 hours. The BBQ chicken was out of this world! Fell right off the bone!

Stampwithjoni said...

I was going to leave a recipe for Taco Soup, but it looks like someone else beat me to it. Thanks for the chance to win!

Connie said...

Crockpot Pork Chops are so easy! Mix flour,sage, salt and pepper - coat pork chops and brown in oil. Put in crockpot one can cream of chicken soup- put chops on top. Top with onions or mushrooms or both and let it cook several hours. The porkchops are so tender and the soup makes a nice gravy to have over rice!! Yummy!

Crystal said...

BBQ Beef if what I usually make in the crock pot. Simple, and most everyone will eat it at my house!

I once stayed at an inn where they had spiced cider in the crockpot available in the afternoon. It was quite yummy!

Stephanie said...

Here's a favorite for a cold winter day (crock pot or stove top).

Halupki (Stuffed Cabbage) Soup
- 1 1/2 carton beef broth
- 2 large cans diced tomatoes
- cabbage (cut up into small pieces)
- ground beef (1 - 2 pounds, cooked)

I add rice when serving otherwise it swells up.

Jane Bosi said...

Oh.....ME ME, Pick me!!! I love that little ellie! Ellie's are big deals around our house....:) If you are looking for crock pot recipes, there's a blog you have to check out: http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/

Angji said...

Ok that stamp set is toooo CUTE! I love elephants, especially after watching the Planet Earth series. They are so hardy and resourceful. Ok running on here. I don't use my crockpot much. Just for cooking my whole chicken for chicken and dumplings. Pick me please! :)

Syme Family said...

I imagine you could do this in a crock pot. I have only done it in a dutch oven. Chicken (I usually use boneless skinless chicken breasts) + 1 can of Coke + 2 cups of ketchup =Yummy! Cook until chicken is cooked all the way through.
Would love to win this. I have yet to use a copic and would like to try them out!

wendyp said...

I am not much of a cook, so I just kinda wing it when it comes to the crock pot. One of my families absolute favorites is stew. I just throw in a chuck roast, cut into 1-2 inch pieces, 5-6 potatoes quartered, 4-5 carrots, an onion and a bit of pepper. Cook all day. I just love how yummy the house smells all day. One might actually think I can cook by the smell of it, LOL!

pbo said...

I would love to have some Copic markers! I love to cook, but not much in the crockpot! I do really enjoy reading your blog and other crafty bloggers who live in our beautiful state of Oregon!

What great blog candy. I can't think of a good recipe off the top of my head. However, I love the idea and will be looking at other's crock pot ideas.

Kerry J. said...

Oooh thanks for the chance to win! I'm sure I've left my recipe for Italian crockpot chicken here before - it's still my fave!!

Melissa Miller said...

I like pulled pork with NY Spedie sauce. Put pork tenderloin in the crockpot, add bottle of NY Spedie sauce and half cup water. Let simmer for 10 hours. I live in NY and this sauce is a popular item! Available at most grocery stores. Ohhh... love your stamps and am hoping to start my collection by winning some candy!

Tori Wild said...

Beef and Noodles are my favorite in the crockpot-- I get stew beef, salt and pepper to taste... add two cups of beef broth and then cook it on low most of the day--- about an hour before we're ready to eat, I through in a bag or two of Reames Egg Noodles (the precooked ones)-- and warm until the noodles are soft and ready to eat. SUPER GOOD comfort food!! :)

Melanie Kulig said...

Favorite Crockpot Sausage Appetizer:
1 package of cocktail sausages
1 bottle of cocktail sauce (usually found near the ketchup)
1 small jar of grape jelly
Put all into a crockpot and cook on low for about 3 hours or longer.
Serve them wtih fancy toothpicks.
Melanie

Pegg S said...

I don't have a crockpot, so don't have any recipes to share. It sounds like such a great addition to the kitchen. Maybe when I have a house one day. For now, the George Foreman grill makes quick and healthy weeknight meals. Just grill up some chicken for over pasta or salads or with som roasted vegetables.

Melissa Sauls said...

OH wowowow!! Thanks so much for the chance to win Copics AND the cutest stamp set!!! I just got back from Archiver's and was looking for Our Craft Lounge and couldn't find any. :( Guess this just means I have to place an order online! ;)

Nicole said...

HI GIRL, the easiest recipe I have by far for crockpot is barbecued porkchops. I get the THICKEST (bone in or boneless), and stack them on top of each other, covering each one with barbecue sauce so that there is BBQ inbetween and all around, then put it on low for 6-10 hours depending on how hot your crockpot cooks! Mine seems to cook really HOT on even the low setting, so mine are done in 6 hours!

Thanks for the chance to win some goodies!

I like to make chicken soup in the crock pot. I use the whole chicken, carrot, and Chinese dry mushroom. Add some salt and fill the water up and let it cook at 350 degrees over night. Wake up in the morning and the kitchen is filled with the fragrance of the mushroom. Very easy and convenience.

Jazzy Roast

Mix 1 cup beef broth/bouillon, 1 can Rotel tomatoes, and 1 can cream of mushroom soup. Put a 2-3 lb. roast in the crockpot. Add chunks of onion, potatoes and carrots. Pour the liquid over the roast & veggies. Cook on low for 9 hours. Great flavor and makes alot of "juice" which is perfect over some Southern Style biscuits.

Patti Chesky said...

Place a pork shoulder roast, add 1 1/2 cups chicken broth around roast.

Add large diced onion, 2 cloves garlic (smashed) to the broth

Ok this is not a crock pot soup but I really think you will like it. Green Chili Chicken Soup
This is sooooooooo good. I make this soup for just about every potluck or when I need to feed a lot of people. I also keep copies of the recipe printed out and take with me whenever I take the soup. People Always ask for the recipe !
Hope you enjoy. Would love to know what you think.

3 chicken bouillon, cubes
5 14 oz. cans chicken broth
6 cups milk (I use skim)
3 pounds chicken breasts, cooked
1-teaspoon garlic powder, or fresh garlic
1 onion, medium, finely chopped
1 green chili, Bueno Mild chopped
1/4 green chili, Bueno Hot, chopped
4 to 5 green chili, roasted, chopped (opt)
1 cup half and half
salt and pepper
Roux
1 1/2 sticks butter
1-cup flour
Bring chicken broth and cubes to a boil in a large pot. Add cooked chicken, green chili, onion, and garlic. Simmer 20 minutes. Add milk bring to a boil again. Meanwhile, in a small pan, melt butter, and then add flour cooking until paste like. Slowly add to boiling soup. Soup will begin to thicken. Simmer for 30 minutes. If simmering longer, stir often. Just before serving add half and half. Serve with flour tortillas. May keep leftovers refrigerated for 3-4 days.

What a great giveaway! I don't have a crockpot -shocking, I know! Mine died a few years ago and I never got around to replacing it. I like simple stir fry dishes - tonight I julienned carrots, zucchini, peppers and onions and added some pre-cooked shrimp for some fast shrimp fajitas. Yummy!

Cool, what a great giveaway! Thanks for always sharing great ideas and inspiration! Have you ever compiled all the recipes somewhere? I tried to copy a bunch when you asked for them last year, but it got huge and I think I lost it!

Crafty Cathy said...

I'm a crafte, not a cooker! I'm blessed with a DH who loves to cook, so I let him. I have played with the crock pot before but best leave it to professionals. :o) I do love Copics and have been pining for Mr. Peanut since he was released. Thanks for the great candy opportunity!

Kathy said...

Wow, what fantastic blog candy ! i have been drooling over the renditions i have seen of Peanut. My favorite recipe for the crock pot is to throw a lb of stew meat, 1 can of tomato sauce, about 4 carrots slice thick , 2 sweet onions (chopped large), 4 large celery sticks (sliced), 2 large potatos (cut into chunks) and half a dozen mushrooms (quartered) into pot cover with water and cook on low while you craft. Eat when desired.

One of my favorite crock pot recipes is called Pizza Chicken. Place chicken strips/breasts (either!) in crock pot. Season with garlic powder. Cover with sliced green peppers and chopped onion. Pour favorite spaghetti sauce over and let cook on low all day. Serve over cooked egg noodles and top with sprinkled shredded cheese...yummm-o! : )

Here'a really simple crockpot recipe:

Beef roast
Jar of whole peperoncini over top, juice and all.
Cook all day.

Remove whole peppers, shred meat into juice.

Serve on hoagies with provolone cheese and slice peperoncini rings.

Yum!

Charlene H. said...

Wow! Great recipes. I don't cook very much in my crock pot - mostly because I forget to use it. The main thing I do cook in it is a roast - either pork or beef. I usually add a couple of cans of cream of chicken soup (I don't like mushrooms) and a package of Lipton Onion Soup Mix. Stir it up and stick the roast in. Makes great gravy. Thanks for the awesome blog candy.

SusanH said...

Wow, copics and elephants! what more could a girl want? And I don't use a crockpot - some of the recipes look pretty good, I may have to get one. Oh wait! I have used one for the velveeta cheese, rotel tomatoes, and sausage dip - good stuff with corn chips!

Sue said...

i dont' cook or at least not on a crockpot :)... but i am apprecaiting this opportunity! thank you! those copic marker have my attention and one day i will take the plunge and get them...

stampylisa said...

doesn't need a crockpot, but all ya need is some rotisserie chicken-pulled off the bone, a can of black beans, a can of Rotel brand tomatoes (whichever flavah is your fave), and a can of corn or black olives. Then make up a pot of brown rice (reg or the 10 min kind) and mix all the above and throw in the chicken. This is better the second day, but great w/tortilla chips, on heated tortillas and if you want, you can jazz it up w/some shredded cheese or sour cream. buon appetit!

Hi Cami!

Crockpot Chicken Stew

Cube and saute boneless chicken breast with salt and pepper. Then dump in crock pot with some frozen corn, chicken stock, green chile, canned tomatos (drained), cilantro, oregano (dry) and salt. Then, after it has simmered for several hours, serve it with tortilla chips and throw in some jack cheese. I made it the other day and it was yummy. :)

Shannon said...

It's 1:30 am so I'm not going to be able to come up with a recipe at this time. I do love when you meet up with Mrs Copic!

I love a beef roast cooked in a crock pot. To make I usually just buy a cheap cut of meat, brown it on all sides with a little oil, drain it,. Place in a crock pot with about 1 cup of water some onions a beef boullion cube and leave it be. Yum!

Thanks for a chance at this equally delicious candy

One of my favorites and easiest ,and we just had it, is an arm roast, then I "dump" a can of Campbell's French Onion soup and a can of water over it, it makes the best, moist meat ever, and then I strain all the "stuff out" and make this wonderful rich gravy with the broth! It also smells as yummy as it tastes, while its cooking...Its an all dayer on low, perfect! Thanks for the chance at your yummy copics and stamp set!!

MJ said...

Oh how sweet is this. I am in on this one, don't hop on many of these but when they have Copics I do! Here is a recipe from the Dinner Tonight Blog.

Southwest Meatloaf Burgers

Ingredients

Serves 4

* 1 1/4 pounds ground beef chuck
* 1/4 cup plain dried breadcrumbs
* 1 cup (about 1 bunch) scallions, minced
* 4 cloves garlic, minced
* 1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons tomato-based chili sauce
* 1 large egg, lightly beaten
* 1 tablespoon chili powder
* 2 teaspoons ground cumin
* Coarse salt and ground pepper
* Warmed tortillas, for serving (optional)
* Pickled jalapeno slices, for garnish (optional)

Directions

1. In a large bowl, combine beef, breadcrumbs, scallions, garlic, 1/2 cup chili sauce, egg, chili powder, cumin, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Using your hands, mix just until combined; do not overmix.
2. Divide beef into 4 equal portions. Form each portion into a 4-inch-diameter patty, about 1 1/2 inches thick. Place on a plate; cover tightly with plastic wrap. Refrigerate until ready to use, up to overnight.
3. Preheat oven to 425 degrees with rack in center. Transfer patties to a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until browned, about 15 minutes.
4. Lightly brush tops and sides of patties with remaining 3 tablespoons chili sauce. Return to oven; cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted into center registers 160 degrees. 5 to 10 minutes more. Serve immediately, with tortillas, jalapenos, and radishes, if desired.

Jannette said...

I have a crockpot and I know I should use it more but my hubby does most of the cooking. If I do use the pot it's throw a roast in with a can of aujus, onion, water to cover. I know my hubby adds more stuff but I don't know what. Garlic most likely. Thanks for the great give a way.

Jannette D.

just me....lynn said...

I just throw some veggies (whatever i happen to have) along with some tomato juice and some cooked ground beef and some macaroni and i get veggie soup - easy peasy and its great!!

Heather "Hev" said...

Hello Cambria :)

I would just add all my favourite vegies to any leftover roast meat - make a gravy and let it simmer for a couple of hours - yummo!!

Have a lovely day
Hugs Heather

beth g said...

I make BBQ Beef sandwiches. At night I put into the bottom of the crock pot a light coating of dried chopped onion and 3 cloves of minced garlic then I put the beef roast fat side down. When I wake up in the am I drain off the fat/water (keep a little in the crock) and I flip the roast. When I come home for lunch I use 2 forks and pull apart the meat and add one bottle of Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce. I serve this on buns with broccoli and a salad as my side dish. enjoy

Melissa said...

Wow - copic markers I've really been wanting to try these some more.
As far as recipes I'm not a very good cook. I just tried this one from Real Simple and like it because it's quick (I'm more of a OMG what's for dinner I'm starving!)

Angel Hair with Spicy Shrimp
15 min serves 4

¾ lb angel hair pasta or spaghetti
1 T olive oil
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 lb frozen peeled and deveined medium shrimp, thawed
¾ c dry white wine
¼ t crushed red pepper
kosher salt
2 T butter

Cook pasta according to directions. Drain and return to pot.
Meanwhile, heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic, cook, stirring for 1 minute (do not let it brown). Add the shrimp, wine, rep pepper and ½ teaspoon salt. Simmer until the shrimp are opaque, 2-3 minutes. Stir in the butter until melted. Toss the pasta with the shrimp mixture.

Good LUCK to everyone!

Love your blog! Here's a recipe for Baked Stew. It's for roasting, but I put it in a crockpot, and so did the person I received it from. It's delicious - and hope you like it.

Baked Stew - in roaster, or crockpot

3 pounds stew beef
2 cups diced onions
2 cups quartered potatoes
2 cups carrots (large chunks)
2 cups celery (large sections)
1 6-oz can sliced mushrooms
2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
5 tablespoon tapioca
1 tsp sugar
3 cup V-8 + 3/4 cup red wine (I use all V-8 juice, with no wine)

Place all in order given in roaster with tight-fitting lid (I use crockpot). This means the beef in placed in crockpot first, next is onions, potatoes, carrots, celery, musrooms, etc). If using roaster, bake at 250 degrees for 5 hours. (In crockpot, I cook all night). No browning necessary.

Paula said...

I make the filling for my enchiladas with the crock pot. I put a roast in the crock pot with a can of tomato sauce, chopped onions and a package of dry chili seasoning. When it's done, I shred it and make enchiladas with it. Yummy!

Here is a quick and easy recipe that I make all the time and get "RAVE" reviews about:

Fruit Dip

Equal parts of cream cheese and marshmallow fluff

Example: 8 oz. cream cheese plus 8 oz. marshmallow fluff

Beat together until creamy and chill. After several hours of chilling, serve with your favorite fruit. Is especially great just with strawberries. Enjoy - oh yeah, please also enter me into the contest to win Copic markers, as I LOVE LOVE LOVE these. Thanks!

Anonymous said...

One of my favorite meals in the crock pot is Corned Beef and Cabbage. Place one onion (quartered), 4 carrots, corned beef and seasonings (don't forget the little seasoning packet if separate in the corned beef) and 3/4 cup water. Turn crock pot on high and cook 7-8 hrs. Don't put potatoes in this recipe, as they will absorb the salt and not taste good. Thank you so much for this opportunity - Copic Markers - WOW!
Thanks, Barb

I have never tried Copic markers or stamps other than SU so would love to win! I didn't read through ALL the posts to see if my recipe is there so it may be a duplicate! Stroganoff: 1lb of cubed beef (whatever cut is on sale!), can of golden mushroom soup and a can of sliced mushrooms (you can add onions if you like them - we don't) and cook on slow all day (8 hrs). Add sour cream just before serving over cooked egg noodles. Thanks for the chance to win!

1 cup rice (not minute rice)

brown beef and drain fat. put all ingredients in crock pot. stir throughly cover and cook on low 6 to 8 hours. I LOVE my crock pot.

Anonymous said...

My favorite thing to make in the crockpot is BBQ beef for sandwiches. I brown a large roast in a skillet then add one or two very large onion(s) sliced and fry until transparent. Put roast and onions in the crockpot with a little beef broth and let cook all day. About an hour before dinner, shred the beef (slice on cutting board then pull apart with 2 forks); add as much BBQ sauce as you like (I prefer "Sweet Baby Rays" from Costco). Leave in crockpot on high until heated or time for dinner. Serve on hamburger buns. So tender and good. Divide leftovers up in freezer bags for later meals.

I would love to win this blog candy. Thanks for giving us a chance to win it.

I like to make scalloped potatoes. Slice your potatoes, butter the casserole dish. Place a layer of potatoes in adding salt and pepper cheese slices, a bit of flour and some milk. Then add another layer omitting the cheese on the top. Cook for a good 1 1/2 hours at 350depending on size of dish. May need longer. Just before removing from oven add the top cheese just to melt.
Thanks for the chance at the copics/stamp set.

I'm so sorry, but I'm not a good cook. So I better not share recipes. I do like using the crock pot too, but don't have many recipes myself. Will enjoy going through the recipes here too.
Thank you for the opportunity to win some copics and your adorable stamps!!

Love your site, you are the best. My fave cheese dip is 1/2 stick Velvetta, 1 can rotel and a little cooked hamburger and cook down in a crock pot. Chips for dipping.

Hi Cami,
I'm crockpot-challenged, but reading all these recipes is very inspiring! Thanks for the opportunity for copics and stamps!

Here is one of our family favorites. You need to try it.

Chicken Divan by Wendy Peatross

2 cans condensed cream of chicken soup
3/4 cup mayonnaise
2/3 cup milk
2 ½ cups grated cheddar cheese
3 tablespoons concentrated lemon juice
2 large bunches of broccoli, cooked
3 pounds cooked, chicken, shredded or chunked
2 cups crumbled Ritz crackers

Preheat the oven to 350’. In a large bowl combine the soup, mayonnaise, milk, 2 ½ cups cheese, and lemon juice. Mix well, but do not beat. Layer a 9 x 13 baking dish with the broccoli, then the chicken. Spread the sauce mixture over the chicken. Add the cracker crumbs. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and top with ½ cup grated cheese. Return to the oven only long enough for the cheese to melt. Serve hot.

I LOVE your blog candy! I have been wanting copics for so long, but I haven't sprung for them yet. Thanks :-)

O, O, O, pick me! I haven't even seen the Copics in person. I usually make beef stew in the crockpot, I see so many have already done that. I will list what I tend to use.

I usually cut up a 2 pound Chuck Roast (much more tender and flavorful than the 'stew meat' tends to be
I salt and pepper it really well.
Add it to the pot, top it with Onion/Mushroom soup packet
Cut up potatoes, carrots, onion and celery and put on top.
1 bay leaf
1 bottle of beer (whatever I have)
1 cup of beef stock or water

Cook on low for maybe 6 hours or so. You could totally substitute wine for the beer, but I like the beer.

I usually do it on the stove now, instead of crock, coating the beef with flour, and browning in small batches, for added flavor. Allowing the beef to really caramelize before moving it in the pan. Either way is good.

Thanks for the chance to win.

I don't have a crock pot recipe for you as I am more of a baker than a "cooker"....still trying to find my cooking skills. I love your blog, though, and wanted to say thank you for all of the inspiration you give us.

My favorite crock pot recipe lately is pulled pork. The original recipe is more involved, including onion, honey, etc. but I found that if you just take a 2-3 lb. pork loin roast, and about 3/4 to 1 full bottle of Sweet Baby Ray's Sweet Vidalia Onion BBQ Sauce, and put both into a greased crock pot for 8 hours on low, it's the same taste. When the cooking is done, shred the meat (right in the pot) with two forks and stir to get the sauce all over it. Serve on hamburger buns. YUMMMMM! We have it every other week or so! Love you stamps by the way! I just posted my first Bubs the Beaver card the other day. ;)

Awesome blog candy! Love the stamp set and I've never used Copics...what a fabulous opportunity!

Here's an awesome pork roast, that I make every Christmas in the crock pot (really, I should make it more...easy and amazingly delicious!!) The gravy is heaven!

Cranberry Pork Roast

1 Boneless rolled pork loin, roast
1 can 16-oz. jellied cranberry sauce with berries**
1/2 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Cranberry juice (or orange juice) **
1 teaspoon Dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon Ground cloves

1/4 Cup Cornstarch
1/4 Cup Cold water
Salt

Place pork roast in slow cooker. In a medium bowl, mash cranberry sauce; stir in sugar, cranberry juice, mustard, and cloves. Pour over roast. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours, or until meat is tender. Remove roast and keep warm. Skim fat from juices; measure 2 cups; add water if necessary, and pour into a saucepan. Bring to a boil over med-high heat.
Combine the cornstarch and cold water until smooth; stir into gravy. Cook and stir until thickened. Season with salt. Serve with sliced pork.

**When I make this, I use regular jellied cranberry sauce (no whole berries) and I use orange juice. I find it makes for a nice balance with the cranberry sauce. I also turn the roast a few times while it's cooking, since I tend to buy roasts that are really too large..not necessary if you buy a normal size roast.;-)

woohoo great candy...pick me pick me!! thanks for chance to win ... love your blog!

Barbara said...

Hmm. i dont do a lot in the crock pot - perhaps chili now and then.
I have an aversion to anything that calls for a can of any type of creamed soup. Enjoyed reading what others have done tho.

Dawn said...

Wow my first thought was, I should use my crockpot more, but need recipes. Well looking over everyones comments I need to borrow some of these recipes. Looks like some good ones.
I love that stamp set, the elephant is so darn cute! I do not own any copics but wish I did.

I make a yummy roast in the crock pot...

Place roast in CP, cover with some onion soup mix, and then pour a can of mushroom soup, mushrooms & beef broth over everything. Cook on low for 7ish hours (dep. on size of the roast). You can throw potatoes & carrots in the CP with the roast about half way through.

Thanks for the blog candy!!
