One of the reasons why I love Pinterest so much is because I find the simplest ideas that can really make my life a lot easier.
Like baking potatoes.
Baking potatoes in the oven takes forever. You can microwave them, but they don't taste as good. Thanks to Pinterest, I found out you can cook them in your crock pot! Just poke the potatoes with a fork like you normally would when baking them. Wrap each potato in foil. Put the foil wrapped potatoes in the crock pot and set it. (I set my crock pot on low because they were cooking all day while I was at work) Seriously! That's all you have to do!
When you're ready to eat, the potatoes will be cooked perfectly. You can top them with whatever you'd like. I like steamed broccoli and some cheddar cheese. It makes a great fast and easy meal!
