    There are certain things I regularly use my Crock-Pot for: slow-cooked beef, chicken soup, pork loin, and stew. Those are all classic slow-cooker fare, but you know what I'm finding out? My Crock-Pot can do much more -- SO much more.

    I love my slow cooker. It's convenient and easy to use, and any busy mom will sing its praises as an old-school yet totally awesome must-have appliance. But my slow-cooker skills have been limited -- until now! I have recently discovered that there are so many other concoctions that can be created in my humble Crock-Pot.

    Check out these 6 cool things you probably didn't know you could make in your Crock-Pot!

    Slow cooker. Bacon. Jam. All awesome things, right? So why not combine 'em! Spread this bacon jam on biscuits, toast, eat it straight out of the container, package it up and use it as favors for your next party -- the possibilities are truly endless. Well, at least when it comes to jam.

    This slow cooker bacon jam recipe from Martha Stewart will be the perfect pick-me-up during these cold, harsh, winter days. Because it will make all your freshly baked goods warm out of the oven taste all the better. It's also super easy to make and requires lots of common ingredients. And bacon. Did we mention the bacon? Because there's lots of bacon and that's exactly what you need this time of year.

    You can keep your wire hangers -- the one thing that triggers my inner Mommy Dearest is a messy, overflowing cabinet of plastic storage containers. NO! MORE! PLASTIC! CONTATINERS! Forget the perfectly coordinated, cute Tupperware collection -- for most of us, the dreaded plasticware cabinet is a mess of takeout cups and mismatched tubs and lids. How do you tame the madness? We've got some ideas that will let you keep storing your leftovers without losing your mind.

    Breakfast is basically the perfect food, amirite? Not even just a particular breakfast item, but breakfast in general. Especially since bacon is traditionally considered a breakfast food. And breakfast is also full of carbs, which we all know are God’s gift to humanity.

    So let’s take carbs, add some cream and eggs, fry it, wrap it in bacon, smother it in maple syrup, and dust it with powdered sugar. Did your taste buds just die reading that? Mine are dead because I am eating bacon wrapped French toast bites as I’m writing this. Try not to be too jealous -- you can make your own!

    Restaurant tip stories often run the gamut between the utterly heartwarming -- people leaving $6,000 for one waitress because she was a foster child -- to the absurd -- people stiffing waitresses and waiters for no reason. But even among those stories, I think this one takes the cake. An Oregon couple tipped their waitress with crystal meth. Oh yes. You read that right. She was tipped in drugs.

    This all happened in a steakhouse in Seaside, Oregon when a couple who paid using a gift card tried to tip their server with an envelope marked with a question mark. Inside was a stash of the crystal meth they'd been cooking.

    What isn't clear is how the waitress knew what she was looking at. Maybe she asked. Honestly, I would have no idea what crystal meth even looks like. But then, she called the police. Police arrived and found the woman still holding 17 ounces of the drug. Then they found a meth lab in the couple's room at the Holiday Inn. Dumbest dealers ever? Yes and no.

    Song makers insisted on giving us 12 days of Christmas, so there's no reason why we can't treat ourselves to at least 12 days of delicious Christmas eating. Whether you make these tasty banana eggnog pancakes on Christmas morning, or in the lazy wintry days that follow, you'll smile each time you take a bite and remember the good times you've been having with family and friends.

    And, aside from all of the many sentimental excuses you'll have to make these pancakes, there's a perfectly practical reason behind them, as well: what else are you going to do with all of that eggnog you bought that's just sitting in your fridge?

    There's nothing better than waking up on Christmas morning and enjoying a warm cup of coffee or hot chocolate and taking a bite into a hot, sweet, scrumptious cinnamon roll. This recipe by Pioneer Woman is fantastic because there are so many step-by-step photo instructions to help you make them from scratch.

    Sure, it'll take quite a bit of time, and there's always the ready-made version, but there's nothing quite as tasty and delicious and rewarding as homemade cinnamon rolls. Your family and loved ones will eat 'em up on Christmas morning! Hard to believe it's less than a week away ...

    There's nothing like a warm, hearty bread to fill your tummy on a cold winter day. And Nutella, that intoxicating hazelnut cocoa spread that seems to be infiltrating every dessert from cupcakes to s'mores bars, makes the perfect filling for a sweet and substantial bread dessert. It isn't just delicious -- it's really beautiful to look at, too. 

    This Braided Nutella Bread would make the perfect Christmas morning breakfast -- but why wait that long to sample it? Let's get baking!

    So I was trying to find a recipe for something to do with Nutella, because by the Saturday after Thanksgiving, people are usually pretty done with turkey leftovers, and mashed potato leftovers, and pumpkin pie leftovers, and … well, you catch my drift.

    I did what any normal American female would do and hopped over to Pinterest and searched for Nutella recipes. Boy, we do love our Nutella, don’t we? Anyway, I saw a couple involving pound cake, and more than a few involving bananas … so let’s just combine it all and see what we come up with, mmmkay?

    Most people in my life either love or hate pumpkin pie, but just about everyone can agree on apple pie. It's the all-American classic, particularly perfect for the holiday season, but really, delicious just about any time of year. You might even argue any time of day (my husband would!), but there's a more acceptable way to gobble it up in the a.m., well before your big turkey dinner has even been served: As French toast, of course!

    Bonus: This mouthwatering Apple Pie French Toast recipe is so easy and versatile, you could even go off-recipe and use leftovers from your Thanksgiving apple pie as the topping. Nommmm!
