How to Bake a Sweet Potato in the Crock Pot




Baking sweet potatoes in the slow cooker is one of my favorite holiday tricks.  They come out beautifully cooked, creamy, and never dry.  Without ever having to turn on the oven.  It's a perfect solution for when you really want sweet potatoes, but have already used up the oven space on turkeys and casseroles!  And make sure to serve them with some Whipped Maple Cinnamon Butter!



Slow Cooker Baked Sweet Potato, Ingredients:



Slow Cooker Baked Sweet Potato, Directions:

  1. Wash and dry sweet potatoes.  Rub lightly with oil or butter, then sprinkle with salt.
  2. Wrap potatoes individually in foil, then pile into a foil lined slow cooker.  (Seriously, line your slow cooker.  I didn't do this the first time, and clean up was a nightmare.)
  3. Cook on low for approximately 6 hours.
  4. Serve with some Whipped Maple Cinnamon Butter, and enjoy!

Tomato and Summer Squash Stew




This Tomato and Summer Squash Stew is a quick easy and incredibly delicious meal.  It's the perfect dish to ease you into the cooler fall evenings while still hanging onto a little bit of that summer flavor.  Apologies for the single cell phone picture, but we gobbled this up before I could take a proper shot.  Next time!

I refuse to acknowledge that it's 90+ degrees out. #mamalovesfood


Tomato and Summer Squash Stew, Ingredients:

  •  olive oil
  • 6 roma tomatoes, small cubed
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, chopped
  • 3 summer squash, cubed
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 small sweet onion, minced
  • 1 - 4 cups chicken (or vegetable) stock (here's how to make chicken stock)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Tomato and Summer Squash Stew, Directions:

  1. Add all ingredients except stock to a large pan and simmer on medium/low with a small amount of olive oil, covered until squash is cooked tender and the vegetables have created their own broth.
  2. Add desired amount of stock to reach your preferred consistency (I like only a little bit so it's thick and hearty) and simmer an additional 10 minutes.  Salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Enjoy!
