    Electricity is included as I'm living in a basement suite. I'm just wondering if using a crock pot saves money on your food bills?

    I have also rediscovered my crock pot recently. I always make extra to put in freezer so, when my dad comes for a visit I can always pull a meal or 2 out for him. I also like to share with my neighbors. Spark has many crock pot recipes. I recently made the pork chop recipe with lite mushroom soup and dry onion soup mix. They came out so moist compared to frying.
