Let’s just say — I love my slow cooker (and I always say slow cooker since Crock Pot is a brand and not one I use – though nothing against the brand, I just don’t personally own it). In fact, I own three slow cookers and use it for far more than casseroles, soups and stews (Pumpkin Pie Steel Cut Oats or Breakfast Banana Bread Pudding anyone?).
The slow cooker really is such a versatile piece of equipment if you know how to use it. And it can be used year round for getting quick, delicious meals on the table when time is tight. It always makes me sad when people talk about putting their slow cookers away when spring or summer rolls around. That is when they really come in handy and help keep the kitchen cool rather than using a hot oven!
I created this recipe for Slow Cooker Mediterranean Salmon several years ago and it it one of my favorites. Try it out! It is our most re-pinned and shared recipe.
