It’s that time of the year, when no matter how hard you try, you’re never caught up. Having some simple slow cooker recipes is a must, and today I bring you several of them to try. Who doesn’t love dinner that literally cooks itself?
Fix-It and Forget-It Big Cookbook: 1400 Best Slow Cooker Recipes! There was a time when I didn’t understand people’s love of crockpots (just another name for slow cookers). I was a lot younger and had more time. And it seemed to me waiting several hours for my soup, when I could have it in an hour, was a waste of time.
Now, I learned that you can do so much more with a slow cooker.
For example, I LOVE making my oatmeal in the slow cooker and have it waiting for me in the morning. This gets my day started right: no rush, no worries and waking up to the aroma of cinnamon (or other spices you love) in the morning is priceless.
