Thank you so much for this link. I have had such a busy life lately and am always looking for ways I can use my crockpot to make things easier
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-3 (ESV)
The above is Stephanie O'Dea, The Crockpot Lady, 's blog on summer crockpot cooking.
One thing I will add that's not on here . . . when cooking for a crowd and you don't have time to make laborious things like potato salad, a Baked Potato Bar is the bomb. And YES you CAN bake potatoes in your crockpot, even borrow a few crocks from neighbors and load them up, in order to not heat up the oven and to use less electricity than the oven; or, to leave the oven free for something else. Baked potatoes travel well, too, and don't have refrigeration concerns that the mayo in potato salad has.
