Crock Pot Recipes for Busy Cooks
Thanks to my crock pot recipes, Sundays are spa days. On Sunday morning I pull out two crock pots. I cook dinner in one and dessert in the other. And while they happily bubble away in the kitchen I turn my tiny "master" bathroom and bedroom into a personal spa.
Dinner recipes will usually take longer to cook than dessert recipes. If your slow cooker turns off automatically after timed setting be sure to put it on a warm setting until ready to serve.
Classic Beef and Potatoes
1 lb ground beef
1 - 8 oz can tomato sauce

1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 cups dry mashed potato flakes
1 - 16 oz container sour cream
1/3 cup water
1 1/2 cups Velveeta
In medium skillet, brown ground beef. Drain well. Put ground beef in slow cooker and add tomato sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper, mixing well. In medium bowl, mix sour cream and potato flakes with water. Spread potato mixture over beef and top with Velveeta cheese. Cover and cook on low for 7-10 hours. Serves 4.
