I'm looking for an easy pot roast recipe. Thank you.

Palm Harbor resident Jennie Miller shares a pot roast recipe she has made for many years. It's easily made in an electric cooking pot, and the result is a fork-tender roast and vegetables, no knife needed. I used a rump roast very close to the size the recipe called for. You could certainly adjust the ingredients and size of the roast if you have a larger or smaller family. Jennie also suggests using halved red potatoes or chunks of sweet potatoes as substitutes for white potatoes. I got a late start getting this ready so I cooked it on high for 6 hours and it was perfect. Serve with some biscuits or crescent rolls to mop up the gravy.
Vanessa Lattin of Tarpon Springs would like an old-fashioned, from-scratch recipe for pancakes. Marilyn Holcombe of Palm Harbor would like a recipe for Olive Garden's Zuppa Toscana.
