Crock Pot Recipes – Ideas for Cooking with a Slow Cooker

Most busy homemakers love easy recipes, and you truly can’t get much easier than crock pot recipes.

If you asked me (and many cooks) the question: “What is one cooking appliance that you cannot do without,” my guess is that the most popular answer would be “My crock pot, of course!”  A slow cooker saves cooking time and make the house smell great. These 40+ Crock Pot Recipes will give you a different one to try each day of the month!

Crock pots, also commonly referred to as slow cookers, make the task of getting dinner on the table an easy one. (Not all slow cookers are crock pots though!)

All you need to do is load the crock pot in the morning and get on with your day. The house will smell wonderful later in the day and many crock pot recipes don’t even need any additional tasks doing once the cooking is finished.

Why use a Crock Pot to cook?

Crock pots save energy and tenderize meats. They generally need no babysitting (and don’t like it if you do). A crock pot frees up your oven and is easy to clean up, especially if you use crock pot liners.

With all these things going for them, it is no wonder that crock pots are so popular.
