50 Slow Cooker Recipes

Life is busy around my house. Even though I have young kids, we are working on potty training, sharing, walking and just staying safe :) Toddlers are such a crazy and fun age!

School is back in session, or almost back in session, and I am sure life is or will get busy taking kids to school, sporting events, extracurricular activities and pretty much anything that comes with the hustle and bustle of life.  My mom was/is a huge fan of just throwing something in the crock pot in the morning and not having to worry about dinner the rest of the day.  Thankfully, she has passed down that love to me!  I adore my slow cooker! I have said it before, and I will say it again, it is HANDS DOWN my favorite kitchen appliance… and that is really saying something because I have a ton!  There is nothing better than a meal that takes little to no prep work and does the cooking all day long so you don’t have to worry about it until dinner time.  I have compiled a list of 50 slow cooker recipes to give you some ideas to use during your busiest days.

  1. Thank you very much for all of these slow-cooker recipes. I decided just a few weeks ago that I need to make better use of my slow cooker, so your post is perfect timing!! Many thanks.


  2. Yum! I’m in love with my slow-cooker right now, too! And I made your beef & broccoli and the chicken stroganoff last week and they were SO good. I loved the chicken one especially. Thanks to you and your momma for these awesome recipes!

    Ok, this is beyond great – it’s fantabulous! How about linking it in to Food on Friday: Slow Cooker!

    Have a great week!

  4. Hi Nikki – I have been following you for ages and have just noticed that you aren’t following back. It would be great if you followed Carole’s Chatter. Cheers

  5. Wow that’s almost 2 months worth of meals! And yes, I love my slow cooker with a baby and a toddler. So nice to be able to throw it together and leave it alone and voila dinner is ready! Thanks for putting this together! Have an awesome weekend!

    Thank you for doing this. I love my slow cooker, as well. It is nice to set it and forget it. I just don’t know what recipe to try first.

      At least half of them are from other websites :) The links to them can be found above the pictures and it will take you to the website the picture is from and where the website can be found. I was just creating a round up of yummy ones I have seen!

  7. I think you just changed my life! I am also so busy — but because of a ruthless job. I bought a crock pot months ago and have never used it. A few searches never turned up anything I thought looked good enough to try. These all look delicious!

    wonderful!! thankyou! could you please let me know what brand/kind of slow cooker you use? i have one but it burns everything :( even on low. i’d love to get a great one that i can rely on :) thanks for your time!

  9. Thank you Thank you Thank you for having a post that has PHOTOS!!!!! So many times I stumble upon a list of food items with no pics and I get bored and move on. I need enticing! Thanks so much, your newest follower ;)

    Lady, I hope you’re happy. These recipes are so awesome that I now have to buy a crock pot because I cannot wait to try them.

  12. Lovely! I have been TRYING to find a good crock pot, but maybe just a simple $15 will work just as good? Any person who works 40+ hours week, should invest in one of these. Hot meals always ready!
