Ode to my slow cooker

How do I love thee?
Let me count the ways
I love thee to ends of the earth
My sweet slow cooking friend
You fill my world with delicious fragrance
Mouth-watering, tantalizing scents
My life is oh, so simpler now
Let all thanks be to you
No frying, no browning
No time consuming baking
Blending and thickening are gone
My time is mine all over again
And cooking is no longer a chore
I will lament over the evening feast
Not a single minute more
Your always nutritious bounty
Never fails to please
I love you like a well cooked casserole
A curry cooked all day
And I love you for the food you bring us
Each and every day


  1. I love my slow cooker, too. I only really use it for corned beef, pea and ham soup and stews, and really only in winter. There is no better smell to come inside to than that of a slow cooked meal. My husband says he can smell it before he even opens the front door. Have you tried making cakes in yours yet? I'm wondering how it would go.

  2. Since noting that you are following my blog I've been having a read of your today. This post has given me a laugh as I too love to use my slow cooker. Beautiful pictures of your family. Keep up the good work entertaining your readers, Sarah
