My New Favourite Thing

Over the past few years, I have managed to accumulate some pretty awesome kitchen appliances – most of which have been given to me, since I am not terribly kitchen-savvy and never think to buy these things for myself.  I have a brand new toaster oven, a bread maker, an ice cream maker, a food processor, a rice cooker, a deep fryer (well techinically that was given to Ryan but the kitchen is MINE so everything in it is mine too) so on and so forth.  But the universe has outdone itself this time with my newest appliance that my mom gave me for Christmas, so now I’m going to rave about it.

Are you ready?

It’s my CROCKPOT.

Oh yes.  And this is why I love it.

I hate cooking.  LOVE baking (which is why I have a ridiculous amount of cookies and muffins packed away in containers ALL over the house) but cooking seems to be a different story.  But I don’t love what I’m not good at, and cooking is one of those things.  Put the simplest recipe in front of me and I will somehow manage to fuck it up.  I don’t get it – my mom is a whiz in the kitchen and I grew up watching her bake and cook, and I can bake REALLY well, but the cooking skills somehow skipped me altogether.

With my crockpot, it’s a different story.  You throw some shit in it in the morning.  You turn it on.  By dinner time, you have – well – DINNER.  Simple.  A monkey could do it.  I love it.

Just don’t buy those frozen “premade” crockpot dinner things.   They’re gross.
