A friend recently asked me for an easy crockpot recipe that she could freeze, dump and go, or just dump and go, which would be a little healthier. knew! This ragu has several different vegetables. It’ll be done in 5-10 minutes (depending on your chopping skills and how often you’re distracted by kids). Served with pasta, it’s a comforting meal that’s super easy to prepare. I recently finished writing my first cookbook, which just so happens to be The Idiot’s Guide to Slow Cooker Cooking. Cooking up 120+ different slow cooker recipes in just a few months was an adventure. My friends have all asked me if I’m off the slow cooker for the next few years. honestly? No! My love for the slow cooker continues unabated. It does some really cool things and can come in handy. Pick yourself up and come home to a slow-cooked meal at the end of the day.
