Using a deep ,covered stoneware baker for the first time

Out of all the cooking gadgets I own, I have never owned a deep covered stoneware baker. Woo-hoo... I have one now and can't wait to start using it.

My plan is to cook a roast or chicken with red potatoes, onions, carrots, a little garlic, black pepper.

If I cook the roast, I'll spray a little non-stick cooking spray on the roast, then coat it with flour, brown the roast on both sides, with a little oil in a very hot iron skillet. Then place that into my NEW deep covered stoneware baker.

My father was a great old time southern cook and while I didn't want to learn how to cook when I was a little girl, I still remember watching him work his magic in the kitchen. He would always brown a roast just a little bit before slow cooking the roast in an old cast-iron crock. Talk about good eatin'!

I'll share more with you later on some of his magic in the kitchen. ( I think I learned more than I realized.)

Till next time.... happy eating!
