Best Crockpot Recipes

Oh, Crockpot Recipes. 

I got my first Crockpot in 1975, about the time they first came out.  Here’s one of my favorites now. 

Boy have they come a long way.  The concept is still the same – pretty much.  Throw your ingredients in, set it, and forget it.  Come back later and it’s done.

I have started using these liners more for easy clean up.  My husband does the dishes so he loves them too.

Utilizing your Crockpot for any meal of the day, even dessert, will just make you happy.  Even if you are just beginning your cooking journey, or don’t enjoy cooking, you will love having a dish hot and ready to eat with little effort.
