Got a slow cooker or a crock pot and looking for recipes. I stumbled across this blog last night while doing my menu planning and fell in love. I love my crock pot because I can get it going in the morning and forget about it. Stephanie O’dea has tried most of these recipes out on her own family and compiled them in a book called _A Year of Slow Cooking_ , also the name of her blog. A lot of her recipes are also gluten free for those who are looking for recipes that are gluten free. She was featured on Rachel Ray and has a few Rachel Ray recipes posted on her blog. I love that she even has recipes for slow cooker bread and French toast. While digging through her recipes to help me plan my meals for the next two weeks I was able to catch a glimpse at her humor and frankness about the meals she prepares. I hope that you find her site helpful and maybe even check out her book.
