If it’s possible to love, Love, LOVE an appliance, then that’s EXACTLY how I feel about my crockpot.
In fact, whenever my husband eyes the counter space occupied by my somewhat rotund beloved, I give him a dirty look and say that HE doesn’t understand our relationship.
Oh the bliss of quickly plopping in random ingredients at lunchtime to spend the afternoon in my office with the smells of my favorite comfort food simmering away. And the relief to wrap-up a busy day, knowing that dinner is already done.
Oh my love – how I adore you! Ahem…sorry about that! Back to my point…
Seriously. My crockpot is the key to my survival as a mompreneur. Balancing work and family commitments means that both need to get a LOT simpler and cutting out a night of cooking is one way to do it.

BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches
Pork roast (shoulder or tenderloin)
1 onion sliced
1 can diced tomatoes
¼ cup chicken stock (or to cover)
1 bottle BBQ sauce
Place pork in the crockpot and add onions, tomatoes, chicken stock and half the BBQ sauce. Cook until pork is fork-tender and shreds easily (5 to 6 hours on high or 7 to 8 hours on low).
Remove pork from liquid and shred. In a separate saucepot, combine the remaining BBQ and 2 cups of the onion tomato mixture. Thicken over medium heat (puree if desired).
Add to the shredded pork and serve on crusty rolls.
