A Crockpot and a Crockpot Cookbook can Save You Cash.

Here at MoneysTight., we try different things on occasion and lately along with trying, we have been talking with people who use crock-pots to cook a lot of meals.

If you are not a big fan of having something cook your meal while you are out, than the key for you is practice on the weekends when you have time to watch it cook and learn exactly what it takes to start it in the morning, so you will be able to let it go until evening. That is part of the joy and freedom of cooking with a crock-pot.

Get a mid range priced pot for starters and make sure it’s as large as you can go. Always buy American and from a brand name manufacturer.

Once you have a crock-pot & cookbook and you have practiced enough meals on several weekends, than you can use it while you are gone and come home to a good home cooked meal every day if you want.

The main thing you want to make sure of, is that you leave it set on low or simmer and you want to add enough water to the bottom or juices to your broth so that it doesn’t dry out and burn the food over an extended period of time.

The great thing is that it will save you money over using a large oven for a couple of hours and it’s much easier.

There is such a wide variety of dishes and meals you can make and depending on the size of your crock-pot and your family, you may even get two meals out of one. That’s a savings in itself.

So if you want to save some money from the old utility bill, check out some of the recipes and give it a try. You save money and eat good food at the same time and that doesn’t sound to bad at all.
