After the birth of her third child, she was diagnosed with celiac disease. This discovery turned her bread and pasta-filled life upside down and set her on a mission to find out what healthy meant for her family.

Ah, dinners in the slow cooker. They’re perfect for busy moms… or dads… or single people. In the morning, stick it in, let it cook all day, and it’s ready for dinner. There’s usually not much prep, and the rewards are pretty tasty!

When I first started using slow cookers, I was nervous to do meat in them. I am notorious for forgetting to thaw meat, and my husband is a tad picky about it being too dry or something like that.

Then I hit a revelation: I didn’t need to thaw the meat first! (Actually, a game hunter in Montana told me this, but anyway.) By cooking at a higher temp, I could stick a frozen roast in the slow cooker and it would still be done in time for dinner. No more meat thawing frustration for me!

This is pretty much how I do meat in the slow cooker now. Whole chickens, pork, this roast… straight from the freezer into the slow cooker!

This roast usually takes about 6 hours in my Crock-Pot, but remember, every slow cooker cooks a little differently. Don’t forget that if you own an Instant Pot, you can simply use the slow cook feature on there. No need for a separate appliance (just one of the MANY reasons we love the Instant Pot). If you have an instant pot and are not sure how to use it, make sure you check out this post here.
