Ok, We have been talking a little about our crock pots on the team Flylady Sparkers, so I put a little challenge out there for both team Flylady Sparkers and Losing and Playing. I want everyone to start adding their favorite crock pot/slow cooker recipes into the SP recipe data base, then come here and post the link to it. This in turn will give you the nutritional break down, but also help us out with new recipes to try :)
First, I would like to explain the difference between a crock pot and a slow cooker for those that may not know the difference. Both cook foods over a long period of time, ranging from a couple hours to 8 to even 10 hours. The crock pot cooks at a higher temp than the slow cooker. The crock pot is also usually digital, so you can set it to go off at a certain time. I have both, and love both, but I tend to only use the crock pot when I am home since it cooks at a higher temp. Also, since it cooks at a higher temp, more liquid is needed since the higher temps will make the liquid evaporate.
Here is the link to the Spark Recipe database:
If you are on one of those team's, please go to the challenge under the challenge forum in that team. If you are not part of one of those teams and would like to join us, feel free to join a team, we would love to have you :)
