Adapting recipes for crock pots is easy.
You probably have favorite range-top or oven-baking recipes that you wish you could prepare in a crock pot.
You can--and successfully, too!
Crock pot cooking is easy, time saving, delicious, and budget friendly. And a crock pot doesn't heat up your kitchen in the summer time like an oven can. So, why not adapt?
And while you are adapting a recipe for dinner, is your daughter sitting at the kitchen table doing her homework? Is she struggling to learn addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division facts? Check out speedmath.org Or, is your son struggling with decimals, measurements, basic Algebra? He's just tearfully announced loudly, "I hate Math." Click on mathfoundation.com for e-learning tools guaranteed to reap "lightbulb moments."
