Tasty Tuesdays: Crock Pot RecipesThere's nothing worse than coming home after long day at the office or toting your children around the town like a chauffeur only to realize that you have no idea what to make for dinner! That's why the crock pot is so incredibly handy! Some people fear it, some people love it. Hopefully after you see all of this week's linked posts, it'll become more of a "love" for you!

For me...it's my "Go-To Saving Grace"! It takes very little planning - you can toss just about anything in a crock pot - and very little time on my end. The end result is {9 times of of 10} a delicious meal that tastes like you've slaved over the stove for hours to prepare...when in reality it only took you 15 minutes to toss the ingredients in the crock pot and turned the dial to "high." The crock pot can cook up all sorts of dishes from appetizers to main courses to desserts...and just about anything in between. So...let's share favorite crock pot recipes here this week! You can either link up your absolute favorite crock pot dish or even one that you'd love to try but haven't gotten around to it yet. Get out your crock pot ladies....and enjoy!

Here's a family favorite from me...

Unbelievable Meatballs

1 bag frozen italian meatballs
1 jar grape jelly
1 jar of chili sauce or ketchup

Put all of the ingredients in the crock pot and cook on HIGH for 1.5 hours. Stir and turn dial on LOW for another 30 minutes . Stir and serve over cooked wide egg noodles.

It's delicious...a crazy combination, but once you try it...it's sweet and saucy...and oh-so-good!

Tip: I get a huge bag of frozen italian meatballs at Sam's Club and use about 1/3 - 1/2 of the bag -- depending on the amount of people I'm having for dinner. I use ketchup because it's not spicy...so it's kid friendly. It's still just as delicious!


So...now it's your turn...link your favorite crock pot recipes below!

Until we get everything "ironed on" with Mr. Linky on the CCM blog...
For this week...just LEAVE A COMMENT with your linked Crock Pot Recipe posts!
Thank You!!!

I hope that I did this right. I'm new to blogging. Couldn't figure out how to import the Tasty Tuesday pic to my blog. Let me know when the link is running.

Karin - as far as importing the pictures for Tasty Tuesday to your own blog...all you have to do is right click over the pictures or pictures of your choice. Then click "Save Image" - save them images(s) to your own hard drive...then when you are posting a Tasty Tuesday post on your blog and you'd like to use a Tasty Tuesdays image, just click "Add a photo" when you're creating your post, select the image you saved...and viola! :) I know blogging can get overwhelming when you're learning new things! If you have any more questions...don't hesitate to ask!
