Give me easy. Mix a few ingredients. Make it simply delicious.

In the practical world of homeschooling and feeding a crowd on a budget, a long list of ingredients does not make the menu plan. I want to put the slow cooker to work while I take care of other things.

In fact, the first month of back-to-school, I use the slow cooker almost exclusively. So here’s to easy, slow cooker recipes of all kinds!

    Thanks ladies. I just love tucking the ingredients in the slow cooker and walking away :) And that littlest girl of mine is one of my biggest helpers in the kitchen! Enjoy, y’all!

    I never really considered using my slow cooker for batch cooking, but it makes sense because of its size. Thanks for sharing the great list!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!! As we jump back into homeschooling, I’ve been making more and more use of the slow cooker, and it is SO nice to have new recipes to try. :) I especially love the $5 section! 😉

    Thank you all – I just finished putting the ingredients for the Mexican Chicken in my slow cooker. Topping with avocado, maybe some sour cream and a side of chips. Looking forward to supper tonight.

    I really appreciate all these recipe suggestions. I’ve got two crock pots and few good recipes for them. It’s wonderful to have all the hard work done for me. All I’ve got to do is follow the instructions and gather the family for a great meal. Can’t wait to try the desserts, too!

    Can i ask which size of crock pot you use for feeding your family. We have 3 children (soon 4!) under 8 years old who are all big eaters, so i am abit unsure what size to buy. Thank you so much!

      Julie – yes, you need a large slow cooker for your growing family. I believe ours is a 5 or 6 quart. It is not labeled – and I can’t tell from searching online. It has an oval shaped insert. Hope that helps!
