My Slow CookerWhen they say, “set it and forget it” that is literally all you have to do. My favourite things to make in the Crockpot are pulled chicken, [toss chicken breasts in an oiled Crockpot with something as simple as a litre of chicken broth, bbq sauce or a fancy marinade..wait 4 hours a pull the meat apart with two forks. Ta da! Told ya it was easy], oatmeal, chili and chicken/turkey soup from scratch! Recipes like these only require about 15 minutes of prep time means I’m free to do something else, and there isn’t much clean up either. I’ve had my Crockpot for over 8 years and it continues to serve me well. It isn’t fancy, it just lets me choose low or high for cooking and then the cooking time. I honestly don’t need it to have any other features though.
My Food processorI use my food processor primarily for making cauliflower rice/cauliflower pizza crust/grating cheese, making hummus and dips. While you can definitely use a grater to make cauliflower rice, I’m a huge fan of my fingertips so..I don’t do that. I got the 10 cup food processor because I can fit 1/2 a cauliflower head in at one time which means I’m spending less time prepping and more time cooking.
