With the heat making it too hot to turn on the oven, I thought this would be a good time to share another crock pot idea with you all...baked potatoes. I have to give credit where credit is do, this one comes from my friend Dee Dee. She's a full-time nurse, mom & wife and loves her crock pot as much as I do. :)
All you have to do is wash 4-6 (or however many you need) baking potatoes, poke them with a fork a couple of times, slather on some olive or grapeseed oil (garlic GSO from Wildtree will make them really good), sprinkle with salt & pepper (optional for those that actually like to eat the skin, too), and wrap each one in foil. (You can skip the oil step, but they stay more tender with a little on them.) Once the potatoes have been prepped, place them in the appropriate sized crock pot and top with lid. Cook on Low for 8 hrs. or High for 4 hrs. They come out cooked to perfection! Plus, it's an easy way to make a bunch of them to have throughout the week if you'd like. My mom has actually made them and reheated them in the microwave later and they were still very good.
Stay cool and keep...
