This great recipe is from The Lid Pocket. 

The Lid Pocket makes preparing meals in a slow cooker even easier by solving the problem of where to put your slow cooker lid. It attaches easily right to the side of most slow cookers and holdsthe lid in place so your hands are free to stir, season or plate the food.  The Lid Pocket is also designed with a reservoir that catches the condensation so it doesn’t drip in your food or on the counter top.

The Lid Pocket makes a great hostess gift, bridal shower/wedding gift or gift for teachers or anyone who owns a slow cooker.  It can also be easily included in a gift basket with soup kits; or with cider seasonings, and a ladle. The possibilities are endless.
