Easy Crock Pot Pork Recipes  in Crock Pot Convenience Chapter

I had so much fun at WFAA Good Morning Texas this past week. Believe it or not, you can cook an entire meal, from entree to dessert, in a crock pot. My newest cookbook, KITCHEN 101: Secrets to Cooking Confidence, has a whole chapter on Crock Pot Convenience.  Cuban Pork and Black Beans is an out of this world dish, so full of flavor, and best of all you simply throw together a few ingredients, head to work, and dinner has cooked itself by the time you get home! I have a “D” by all diabetic-friendly recipes throughout the book, and yes, this is one of them that meets with the ADA guidelines.

From Crock Pot pork recipes to Divine Desserts all in the crock pot!!!

With Bananas Foster in the crock pot, serve dinner, and you have a hot, home-cooked fantastic dessert ready at the end of the meal.  Also, look for the crock pot symbol throughout KITCHEN 101 to easily find slow cooker recipes.

I think the only bad part about cooking in a crock pot is when you have an at-home office and the wonderful aroma of this recipe cooking all day keeps me anxiously awaiting dinner and starving thinking about it.

 Diabetic Friendly Crock Pot Pork recipes

What’s great about this recipe for Cuban Pork and Black Beans is that the recipe is also diabetic-friendly.  There’s no magical diabetes diet so I have indicated a “D” to indicate diabetic-friendly recipes throughout KITCHEN 101 to help you enjoy the healthiest meals of all.
