I love cookbooks. I am the low-risk type of person who would rather follow a recipe than experiment and have my dinner turn out horribly wrong. I am also a sucker for cookbooks with pictures, which is why I love the Crock Pot Incredibly Easy Recipes book that my brother gave me as a gift.
On May 20, I tried the "Classic Pot Roast" recipe from this book. However, I have a love-hate relationship with roasts done in the crock pot. The meat comes out so tender, but the fat on the roast, that would normally cook off when done in the oven, remains. But, of course I am always willing to try another roast, until I can figure out how to cook it better. So, because this recipe needed to cook for 8-10 hours, I got myself up early to begin before going to school.
