It's just me and my husband at home so we only cook for 2 most of the time. We do have a small crock pot given to us by a friend. But I've only used it once - for a roast.
We are starting to have weekly dinners with friends where there could be 6-8 people to feed so I bought a Rival Programable 5.5 qt crock pot. (after buying it i did read some bad reviews so i am a little scared but we'll see!)
Anyway, are these things really just so easy to use? I feel like I am making it too hard - like I'm trying to read up on how to use them. Can anyone help me w/ just the basic "duhs" of using a crock pot? Like, can you just put meat in w/ no water? Or does there always have to be a liquid in there? Could I use my big pot for recipes meant for a smaller pot? what would happen? etc etc.
thanks so much,
