I love my slow cooker!! I know that’s probably not a shock to you Mom’s out there. The slow cooker is probably my absolute favorite kitchen appliance. Yeah, I like to bake and cook on the stove top – okay, I like to cook. But I just love the convenience of the slow cooker, especially on days like our Mondays.

Dinner-time is hectic around our house on Mondays. Both boys have swim lessons at 4:30p-5:00p. They, of course, think they must “shower” in the locker-rooms after, which takes about 15 minutes (it’s busy, so we often have to wait). Then it’s another 15 minutes home. So by the time we get home 5:40ish, it’s already past our normal 5:30p dinner time. The kids are getting cranky and the Hubster is getting frazzled. So, it just makes sense to use my slow cooker on Mondays. Sometimes (like this week) I even use TWO slow cookers!

And those are the two recipes I’m going to share with you today. Quick and easy to prepare. YUMMY to eat!!

Gluten-Free Slow Cooker: Annette’s Italian Red Potatoes

Adapted from this recipe

You will need:

5-6 large red potatoes, quartered with the skin still on

1 cup warm water

1/2 cup butter, cut into chunks

1 TBSP Italian Seasonings

2 tsp Sea Salt

Ground Black Pepper to taste

1 1/3 cup whole Lactaid, warmed

Step 1: Have a super cute 7yr old wash the potatoes.

Step 2: Cut potatoes into quarters (sorry, no pic of this one)

Step 3: Cut butter into chunks. I like that the butter has these handy-dandy TBSP lines so I know where to cut!! I know…it only feeds my Type A personality, but I’m okay with that!

Step 4: Place potatoes in slow cooker first. Then add liquid ingredients.

NOTE: A super cute 7yo is a perfect model for your blog pictures!!

Step 5: Add seasonings and butter chunks.

Step 6: Cook on High for 4 hours or low for 6 hours. Just ignore the dirty crock-pot – I borrowed it. Okay, no I didn’t. I just wash the inside ceramic pot and always forget about the outside – until I take pictures for my blog.

Step 7: ENJOY!!!!

Come back next week when I’ll share how I made the wonderful chicken in the picture!! YUM!!!!

NOTE: If you run low on time, you can put the ceramic portion of your Crockpot© in the oven up to 400o. I found this information here on the Crockpot© website.
