I am always on the lookout for crock pot recipes that have basic ingredients that I usually have on hand. There is something almost magical to me about coming home and smelling a home cooked meal that is almost ready to be enjoyed. Btw, whoever invented the crock pot is a genius!
Anyhow, I stumbled upon a website recently that has a ton of interesting looking recipes and to my joy, a lot of crock pot recipes, and wanted to share.
If you try something off of their site please comment back to me and let me know your thoughts.
This Cashew Chicken recipe was definitely a winner in my house, I hope you and yours enjoy it too!

1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger

Place chicken in slow cooker. Combine soy sauce, vinegar, ketchup, sugar, garlic, ginger, and pepper flakes in small bowl; pour over chicken. Cook on LOW for 3 to 4 hours. Add cashews and stir.
