He seems to think all the recipes are like the crap his mom made. Yanno the 70s? Add a can of creme of celery (mushroom or chicken) soup, packet of liptons onion soup mix and water and chicken, slow cook all day...

Eat over noodles or rice.

He doesn't think it's useful.

I've seen a lot of good slow cooker recipes too...I just kinda had to tweak them to work in a conventional oven.

They are like $25 for a small one just go get one and don't tell him about it. When he likes what he is eating them let him know.

RE: My sausage casserole smells delicious
I am just starting to learn the wonders of the crock pot for my personal self.
My mother uses it all the time back home during winter. My flatmate has one so I thought I'd give it a go.

Seriously Momsurroundedbyboys, it takes like 5minutes to prepare then it's just leave and forget.

Here's what I did:

Slice and core a green apple. Place it in crock pot.
Slice a couple potatoes into decent sized chunks and put into crock pot.
Put in sausages.
Take sausage casserole mix, add half a cup of water, 2 tbs of tomato sauce and stir.
Poor liquid into crock pot.
Put on lid, turn to LOW, leave and forget.

You can turn it on in the morning before you go to work, then it'll be ready for dinner time.
Or you could leave it on before you go to bed the night before, it doesn't matter. You can't burn it.
OH, and you're suppose to put in an onion as well, but I hate onions.

Works for beef chunks, chops (as Erxy pointed out...), sausages and my personal favorite, chicken.
It's the perfect, very very very quick (in regards to preparation...), very very yummy, and perfect in a cold winter as it's nice and warm.

pro tip: Put in a chicken oven roasting bag (or turkey) and cook everything in the crock pot in that roasting bag.
It'll save on clean up, and save things sticking to the side.

My husband won't allow me to get one :-(

Won't allow? Huh

How much of the cooking does he do? Whose kitchen is it?

What do you not allow him to have?

RE: My sausage casserole smells delicious
Boy, your husband needs some training!

At our house it went like this:

"You know what? I want a crockpot."

"What size? What color? Any other preferences?"

"The bigger the better. Maybe just call me and let me know what they have".

Off goes hubby, drives into town, calls from the store, tells me what they got, I pick one, he brings it, I cook in my crockpot.

Forward to dinner time, hubby and me happily eating beef stew. Both in a very good mood. Good things to come.

Of course mine was retired, so he enjoyed driving around and going on missions.

Tell your hubby he is missing out on awesomeness. And so are you.

To tell the truth, I find I can get similar results in a pressure cooker as a crockpot. Don't get me wrong, I use both, crockpot is right for potluck parties, pressure cooker is right for chili on a Wednesday night, but other than the vast difference in time, I honestly can't tell the difference. BBQ pulled pork shoulder in the pressure cooker for an hour, for example, is even more fork tender than the crockpot for 8-10 and the pressure acts like a flavor injector. ... Could just be my unsophisticated palate, though.

This is not my signature.

RE: My sausage casserole smells delicious
If I didn't have a crockpot, everyone in this house would starve. Except the critters. In fact, spaghetti sauce has been simmering all day.

I think I have four...some get used for holiday meals to keep things warm, like mashed potatoes, works great. And no, none of the cream of whatever soup recipes any more.

See here they are, the bruises, some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

He's an occasional chef. I'm a full time cook Big Grin He actually enjoys cooking but rarely has the time. He always tells me how to improve my cooking skills.

We've been married a long time, I'm sure I've said "no" to him a few times.

Maybe I'll have to do a little experiment...like a double blind study.

I'll cook something, half in cock pot and half in oven. See if they tell the difference or if they prefer one over the other.

My friend has a fancy one she got at Williams Sonoma that you can brown the meat inside the insert for the slow cooker on the stove (or something). I'll ask if I can borrow it.

He doesn't see that it might be useful -- the only way he'll change his mind is if he has proof.
