As a busy teacher, I am always searching for better ways to plan out our weekly dinners. Coming home after a long day, it is important to switch over to that mom hat -- helping with homework, listening to stories of the day, overseeing play. So where does dinner prep come in? I have tried (with some success) to pre-cook and plan weekly dinners at the beginning of the week, but I am always looking for new options. Well, as author Daniel Cook says, “Want to have a personal cook? Buy a crockpot. Want to have a professional chef? Buy this book.”
What I notice right away are the secret ingredients in some recipes. I have a number of crockpot recipe cookbooks on my shelves and lining my Pinterest walls, but Daniel Cook came up with some unusual combinations, including Dr. Pepper in with a shoulder roast, cream soups, and spices.
Out of everything in the book, here is what I’m adding to list of next week’s dinners:
Cream Cheese Chicken Taquitos, General’s Chicken, Cola Chicken, Mexican Pulled Pork Tacos, and Honey Apple Pork Loin, Knock Your Socks off Chicken and Sausage. That last recipe especially looks company-worthy. Can’t wait to try! The list would be even longer, but since I am gluten intolerant, I will have to figure out a way to tweak some of the other recipes first.
