  3. I love cooking with a slow cooker for a few reason, first I can turn it on in the morning & when I get home from work, dinner is made! Also no time to clean up, as the food is always moist!

  4. My favourite thing about cooking in a slow cooker is convenience. I can prep the meal and get it simmering in the morning and walk away. It allows me to get things done throughout the day without having to worry about meal planning or cooking later in the day, especially if I am running late.

  5. I like to cook vegetable pot roasts in my slow cooker because I can start it the night before, and it is done when I come home from work.

  6. I love that I can cook a great meal for my family and multi task to do other things that need to be done for the day.

    1. I haven’t tried it, but I bet it would work. You could always test it out first on a small bowl before you add it to the whole batch, to see if it’s good. The soup would be good without the dairy, if you want to skip it all together. 🙂
