Crock-pot/Slow Cooker December

unnamed

Howdy followers and readers. Or should I say Merry Christmas. It’s that time of year again! Lights, music, Mall Santa‘s, of course awesome recipes. I decided this month, since I have a lot on my plate to preview some of my favorite crock-pot/slow cooker recipes. If you are like me, you have relatives arriving in a week, with several other Christmas events in the community you must also be prepared for. So let’s commence Operation Crock-pot/Slow Cooker December. With some other recipes thrown in there for kicks.

 

A lot can be had with that pot you plug into the wall. And with little to zero prep. If you don’t have a crock-pot, these recipes can be adapted to be slow cooked on the stove or in the oven. Don’t you worry your pretty little head. You will truly love these recipes. You will believe the kitchen Elves came in while you weren’t looking and made a gourmet meal.

Just a hint: but that bag is the best thing ever. Requires little to no cleanup for you. Hence why Crock-Pot/Slow Cooker Recipes are so awesome.

 

Prepared to be awed. Check out my next post: Crock-pot Pot Roast!

I will be making a category solely for Crock-pot/Slow Cooker Recipes just for your ease and comfort.

I’m going to start doing my recipes a bit differently, making a recipe card of sorts (an image) that you can save to your desktop so that you don’t have to pull this up or save this page or be online for that matter to get this recipe.

Lemon Tuscan MuffinsI don’t have any fancy software to do this, so paint, the snipping tool, and some fun fonts is what you get.

Here are some photos to the above directions:

Combine dry ingredients: flour ingredients Make a Well as you see above. Grate your lemon with a tool similar to this or use a cheese grater and use the small side.

Combine Wet ingredients and Lemon Rinds, Juices.

Wet Mixture

Put the wet ingredients in the well of the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined. (DO NOT OVERMIX)

Batter

In your prepared muffin tins (that have cupcake liners), Use a ice cream scoop to drop batter. There is enough batter to fill 12 cups.
