Although I don't consider myself a good cook, I do enjoy trying out new recipes and we do need to eat! So here you'll find recipes we've made and actually liked - sometimes liked a lot! Enjoy!
We had guests over last week for a whole week. Normally that wouldn't throw me so much but the same week was one of our busiest weeks of the year where we had to leave home before the guests were up, etc.
Enter ... the Crock Pot! I love my crock! It's great for cooking a lamb all day while we're out at church or whatever but this time it served me well as breakfast maker extraordinaire! I made three out of our 5 breakfasts in it this week. Here they are in the order that we like them:
1. Crock pot Oatmeal: Yummy. This was our favorite and it's super easy. Make sure you use the Irish or "Steel Cut" oatmeal though or it probably will turn out too dry.
1 cup steel cut oats
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup chopped dates
4 cups water
1/2 cup half and half
2 Tablespoons honey
Combine all ingredients except the half and half and honey in a greased crock pot (I forgot to grease ours and it worked just fine). Cook on low for 7-8 hours. Stir in half and half and honey and serve hot.
