A few of them are my recipes, but the majority of them come from my blogger friends.

    I haven’t used my crock pot for awhile. With all these yummy recipes I pinned it’s time to make something. Thanks for sharing :)

  2. says

    There are a lot of recipes here that look like they would be really good. We have a couple of slow cookers and we use one of them quite often. Most of the time we do roasts or chicken dinners. I’m bookmarking this so I can come back and try some of them out.

  3. Priscilla S. says

    Awesome selection of recipes! I especially love using my slow cooker when the weather heats up so I can avoid turning on the oven.

  4. Sue Hull says

    I’m going to try the steel cut oatmeal. I didn’t know a lot of the other meals could be made in a crock pot :)

  5. Alayne Langford says

    I love my slow cooker and the first recipe I would like to try of yours is the Slow Cooker Cranberry Chicken. Two of my fave things in the world. Thanks!

    I love wonderful list of great foods so make and the slow cooker makes it all possible. We find it so simple to use them we have 2. My son has to eat gluten free so one is for him.
