My slow cooker is probably one of my most used appliances. When my kids were living at home, our afternoons and evenings were so busy with after school practices and lessons. My slow cooker came to the rescue by allowing me to have deliciously cooked meals when we all returned home at the end of the day.
Things haven’t changed much for me. True, I don’t have five kids living at home but I do work from home and am so grateful that I can still have a wonderful meal ready for my husband and I at the end of our work day.
We’ve rounded up several of our favorite and most popular Crockpot and slow cooker recipes that require very minimal prepping. Most of these slow cooker recipes allow you to just add the ingredients to a slow cooker, set it and literally forget it until dinnertime.
