Crock-Pot Saturdays (FOR Monday)

On the Facebook Root&Blossom page I asked if people would be up for 'Crock-Pot Mondays.' People were interested but on Tuesday one of my sweet coworkers said she loved the idea but would like the recipes on Saturday so she can get them read for Monday. Why didn't I think of that?! Thanks 'C' for your wonderful idea! SO, here it is, Crock-Pot Monday Saturdays.

Slow cooking is something I've wanted to be good at for quite sometime but unfortunately I don't get the grasp of it like I do baking. I have spent countless hours searching blogs, Food Network, Taste of Home, and books looking for recipes that I felt would be worth trying... Here is to that journey in search for try-worthy slow cooker recipes. My goal is to use our slow cooker once a week because I know this will help elevate time demands on our evenings, hopefully...

Potato Chowder from Taste of Home


  • 8 cups diced potatoes
  • 3 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) chicken broth
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, cubed
  • 1/2 pound sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled, optional
  • Minced chives, optional


  • In a 5-qt. slow cooker, combine the first five ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or until potatoes are tender.
  • Add cream cheese; stir until blended. Garnish with bacon and chives if desired. Yield: 12 servings (3 quarts).

Mine came out thicker than the picture from Taste of Home and actually had more of a mashed potato consistency the second night however the taste was fabulous and will definitely be cooked again in our home!
