Stuffed Peppers Recipe (In the Crockpot)

Last weekend, I resurrected a recipe from my (no longer active) Crock Pot Virgin archive to make stuffed peppers, and they were just as wonderful as I remember them!

Crock Pot Flank Steak

Last week, I took advantage of some of my vacation time to do quite a bit of cooking and freezing of meals. I love having a well stocked freezer with yummy meals that are easy to heat for lunches and easy dinners.

5 Great Crock Pot Tips

For those of you who were followers of my old Crock Pot Virgin blog, as promised I will continue to share crock pot related tips and recipes here on Girl Going Country. Here is a great article I came across from Stone Gable for 10 BEST SLOW COOKER TIPS ~ Part 1.

But, I also know that sometimes, something really special takes a little more work and so I leave myself open to that.

While I’ve been dabbling in crock pot cooking for a couple years now, I still feel like a newbie. Any tips you’d like to share to help me out?
