Although I have not tried this recipe yet, I am going to very soon. It's full of lots of things I love to eat, and it's a very simple crockpot recipe, so no excuses.
I found this recipe on a great website called Recipes That Crock (also a Facebook page), www.recipesthatcrock.com. Talk about mouthwatering! And practical as well, since the ingredients are those easily found in your pantry already or at the grocery store. There's NOTHING like good old down home cookin'!
