It’s been hot this summer, so turning on the oven is not a happy thought until it cools down. Crock Pot meals can save the day because they are a great way to de-stress your day by walking in the door to a home cooked meal!

I like to mix it up a bit. I use, chicken, beef, lamb or whatever I’m in the mood for – they all work with the veggies. For variety, I take the meat and veggies out after they are cooked and make a gravy of the juices, then I cut up the meat and put everything back in the Crock Pot for a stew. If you want soup, don’t make a gravy out of the juice. Add some pasta if it tickles your fancy.

This is one of my recipes. We all have different different food preferences, so put in your faves.

A Few Suggestions: Leeks, shallots or scallions Brussel sprouts, parsnips, rutabaga, turnips, sweet potatoes, yams or Jerusalem artichokes Peas Mushrooms Apples Bacon Lamb with a stout or porter beer instead of stock is a winner. Lemon zest to pump it up a notch. Herbs and spices. I find a dash of cinnamon is great in beef.

Enjoy your Crock Pot Adventures!


  • 1 Onion sliced and diced or cut in rounds
  • 4 Garlic cloves
  • 3 Carrots cut in rounds
  • 6 to 8 Small potatoes cut in quarters
  • 1 Lemon cut in quarters - squeeze a bit over the veggies.
  • Veggie, chicken, turkey or beef stock. Wine, marsala or sherry works well too!
  • Olive oil
  • Salt, pepper and the herbs you prefer. Herbs de Provence is a go to for me with rosemary salt.

  • Put all your ingredients in the crock pot and add enough olive oil to coat the veggies. Mix it all up by hand. Take half the ingredients out.
  • Add your choice of meat, then cover with the veggies you removed.
