Apparently I still haven't figured it out. I made another shitty, shitty dinner tonight. Wonderful. Emily gave me a crock pot that she wasn't going to lug back home (thanks so much!!!!) and I was super excited to start using it. I went to Barnes and Noble today to find a recipe book for my new appliance but nothing really wowed me. I did find a neat little recipe card tin thing from Rival that has a few adaptable recipes. Everything mixes meat and dairy so I'll have to figure out ways to tweak it...or I might return it. I haven't decided yet. Either way, I tried my hand at baked ziti tonight and it flopped in the worst way possible. It was so dry and crunchy. I don't know if I cooked it for too long, if I should have added more water....what did I do wrong? Greg wasn't very helpful or encouraging either so that didn't help. Ugh. I hate failing. The entire dinner went in the disposal. What a waste of food. I feel like crap.
Anyone have a good recipe to try in the crock pot?
