Slow Cooker Recipes

What’s on the menu for dinner this week?  How about adding a slow cooker dish to one of your family meals?  We’ve collected some delicious recipes for you!

I remember the first time I was introduced to the idea of using a slow cooker.  I was teaching at the time, and a fellow teacher mentioned to me that she threw some chicken in her crock-pot along with a few other ingredients and couldn’t wait to get home to enjoy it.

Well… this was a completely foreign idea to me — growing up, our family never used a crock-pot.  I could not wrap my head around putting uncooked ingredients in this electric appliance, the “crock-pot,” and walking away from it for hours!   But then…  after asking around and learning more about it, I went out and got my very own slow cooker!  I was HOOKED!

Our school had a book fair soon after that first conversation where I learned about the slow cooker, and guess what I was doing during my lunch time?!  I was at the book fair, completely engrossed and leafing through the Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook series and of course went home with a copy for myself!  I went on a slow cooker kick, and started using it at least once a week!

Now, as a mother of two little ones, some days I feel like I barely have time to cook!  This is when the slow cooker becomes a very good friend in the kitchen again.  How about you?  Are you good friends with your slow cooker?  Do you have a favorite slow cooker dish or go-to recipe?  Please do share and leave us a comment!
