Quick & Easy Slow Cooker Meals Heather Hopson October 30, 2014 Health, Wellness & Religion, Mom 2 Comments Disclosure: I am a Hamilton Beach blogger ambassador and received some form of compensation to review this product. However, all opinions remain my own. Growing up, my mother made a home cooked meal daily. She whipped up everything from baked chicken and Salisbury steak to pot roast and stuffed salmon. Then, when I entered the first grade, she went back to work. Her stay at home days ended, but her kitchen didn’t close. Daily dinners, more like feasts, spread out on the table and quickly settled in our stomachs. How did she keep up the cooking? She bought a slow cooker! Although I’m a working mom, a slow cooker wasn’t in my kitchen arsenal. Heck, when I stayed at home, I still didn’t have one. I think anything beyond the stove and microwave intimidated me. That was until recently when Hamilton Beach shipped me a Set & Forget® Programmable Slow Cooker. As part of the company’s brand ambassador program and as a way to step up my culinary skills, I agreed to review the product. And I recruited a sous chef. We had a fun time making a delicious dish. Here are some of the great features of Hamilton Beach’s Set & Forget® Programmable Slow Cooker: Easy, automatic cooking: program, probe and manual Thermometer probe reads the actual temperature of food as it cooks; the temperature is displayed on the slow cooker control panel Travel-friendly design secures contents en route to parties, potlucks, family gatherings and tailgating The lid securely seals in place with sturdy wire clips on each handle After using the slow cooker, I slowly learned that I don’t have to be a top chef to feed my family. I can just Google a recipe or adapt my Hello Fresh deliveries. I also found out that I can prepare an easy, nutritious meal in little time. We can spend the time saved making more memories, like this cooking video. Hey DFTM Fam–How has a slow cooker made your life less stressful? What are your favorite dishes to slow cook? 2 Responses MJ November 5, 2014 Now that looks like a slow cooker I would use! Great review and your sous chef is top notch!
