I never realized that I had a passion for cooking until I was in my early 40s. Up until that point, I lived on microwave meals or fast food with the occasional nice dinner out with friends or family. All of that unhealthy eating caught up with me because my doctor told me to start eating healthier. I knew that meant I would have to start cooking, but that turned out to be a good thing. Everyone really liked the recipes that I was making, so I decided to get the crock-pot scvt650-ps. I really liked slow cooking and knew that I would need the large 6.5 quart crock pot if I was going to have enough for everyone who wanted to try my latest concoctions. If I didn’t already love my job, I would think about a career change to a chef! As it is though, I’ll just keep this as one of my favorite non-work things to do.
