Myth #5: There's Nothing You Can't Make in a Slow Cooker
We were thrilled to learn that aside from the usual pot roast and pulled pork, Crock Pots can also turn out perfectly gooey brownies and even pizza. There are limits to the craziness, though. O'Dea once tried making hard-boiled eggs in the cooker and wound up with stinky, greenish orbs that had to be triple-bagged before going into the trash. Bacon-wrapped scallops were another mistake. But, in general, if you can make it in the oven, you can make it in a slow cooker.
