Slow Cooker

So yes it’s the first #tuesdaytips of the year and while it is cold and snowy outside, we wanted to make your life easier with a roundup of delicious recipes you can through into your crockpot, slow cooker or instapot. I used to only use our crockpot for a few select recipes prior to becoming a mom, but especially as he get older, we have bringing out our instapot and crockpot more and more. It is easy to set up in the morning and have it cooking while we are busy doing other things like lessons, or working, or even running errands. I don’t have to worry about what we will be making for dinner later in the day.

These recipes also make it easy for your kiddos to help out by using knife skills, reading and measuring. Plus who doesn’t love a warm meal that makes your home smell absolutely delicious. We hope you enjoy the recipes below.
