Last year, I started a run of over 20 days of strictly slow cooker recipes. We had spent too many days eating junk in a row, and I was sick of not eating a real meal. I love my crock pot and the fact that I can put a meal together in the morning, and have it ready by the time we are ready for dinner. We are often swamped with after school activities and I just don’t have time to make dinner in the evening.
Since then, I have had so many ask for recipe ideas, and rather than answering a bunch of emails, or digging up old post, I thought it would be nice to put some of my favorites in one place for you! All of the recipes are super easy, and if I figured out a way to make them even easier, I included that as well.
They’re also kid-friendly which means you only have to make one meal for the whole family! *Happy dance* If you’re trying to get your dinner menu organized, here is a FREE menu planner printable for you! It’s super cute, and will help you to sort out your week.

Slow cooker must-haves
