My life has been ramped up for the past few months, very busy with a lot going on. We will be starting baseball with my youngest soon, and my 18 year old is coaching his very own team this year, so it will be a fun baseball season at our house!
It seems that my Slow Cooker has been a life saver with everything being so busy. I just don’t have the time to spend preparing complicated meals and finding extravagant ingredients.
I found a few easy, no-sweat meals that you can prepare in your slow cooker and which are fairly healthy. I try to stay away from those recipes that call for canned cream soups, although I have recipe for my own homemade version in my Got Dinner recipe book which has been a life saver for those tummy casserole recipes which call for it!
If you are serious about using your Slow Cooker more in your kitchen, I think it really helps to have one of good quality. For years I used a cheap one, and yes, it did the trick, but I cannot say enough now about having one that is larger, has a thermometer and I can set the timer for it to start and go off! This is my favorite Slow Cooker.
I purchased it off of amazon about 4 years ago, I love the larger size, I really find the big handles on the side helpful in moving it around when it is fully loaded and I really love that it is not White on the outside!
So on to the recipes I have found and we’ve been enjoying. Some have been on our table already and some are yet to come – hope they can provide some fresh inspiration.
