Frugal Cooking - a Slow Cooker (Crockpot) is an Essential in a Frugal Kitchen

If you don't already have a crockpot, then you'll definitely want to invest in one. :) Why do I think a slow cooker is so worth it? With a slow cooker, you'll have delicious home cooked (and healthy) meals ready for you and your family to eat as soon as you get home in the evening! And, thankfully, with such little effort...

There are loads of free recipes on the Internet for Crockpot meals, but here is my favorite, easy recipe for you to try:
  • BBQ Beef, Pork or Chicken - Just put your meat of your choice, a chopped onion, a few sliced peppers, a few tablespoons of brown sugar and a half bottle or so of good quality barbecue sauce. If you like spicy foods, add some cayenne pepper. Always add some salt and pepper too, of course. Cook on low for about 8 hours for scrumptious BBQ'd meat. You can also pull the meat apart and serve on rolls with the delicious, tangy sauce.
