Get familiar with every setting on your machine so it’s not a huge guessing game every time you want to make a meal!
This book came out of the Cooking with Confidence Challenge that I hosted with members of the Crockpot Express Community. Every week I sent them a new email “chapter” with detailed recipes and instructions on how to use each setting on the CPE.
When the challenge was over (after 5 weeks) I collected all the information and put it together in eBook format. Here’s what a few of the participants had to say about the challenge:
The Cooking With Confidence Challenge was not only a great learning experience, it was also fun! It helped me conquer my fear of a pressure cooker and encouraged me to try new things. It was helpful to see everyone else trying the same things and it was wonderful to get advice and tips! I now have the confidence to convert some of our family favorites! -Sadie Read Zimmerman
The Cooking with Confidence Challenge gave me confidence that I could successfully use the CPE. While it seems like a rather intimidating appliance, it’s also a pretty easy one as long as you follow some of the basic rules (close the valve, always add enough liquid, etc.).
The recipes were fabulous, especially the roast and the steaming of broccoli and cauliflower. -Elizabeth Woodfield
CWC really helped me understand my machine better and gave me the inspiration I needed to branch out and concoct my own recipes! Oh, and I’m never allowed to stop making brownies in my CPE. The second the last piece is eaten another batch must go in, lol. Brownies, people, brownies! -April Bagwell
