AllRecipes.com is my favorite place to go for recipes because it has such vast array of them. It also has reviews from real people, which helps me know if it’s suited for my, uh, limited cooking skills.
I love crock pot recipes because you do a little bit of work in the morning, and by dinner time it’s good to go. Add that to the fact that roasts were on sale at Giant last week, and I had dinner plus a few day’s worth of leftovers.
This is my go-to recipe when I make pot roast. This is a good, basic, reliable pot roast recipe. It also lends itself well to fancying it up in the way you like. I added mushrooms the last time I made this, and I really want to get a good red wine so I can add a splash or two the next time. If you look in the comments, you’ll see some other suggestions for customizing your roast!
I am not a that adventurous when it comes to food. I’m trying to change this, so when I’m at the grocery store, I’ll sometimes pick up a random food item and figure out what to do with it later.
One day I did that with two big bags of spinach. I’ve had spinach plenty of times in salads, but never cooked. I bought it and went to Chef Google. This was the recipe I found: The Neely’s Sauteed Spinach Recipe.
I usually avoid recipes from the Food Network, because they tend to go a little beyond the realm of my cooking skills. However, this one was easy and so good. It also fancied up the basic pork chops we had for dinner that day.
Try it! It’ll make you strong like Popeye!
