Favorite Crockpot Recipes

If you've read my blog for any given amount of time you know that I absolutely love my slow-cooker. While most people use their crock-pot in the fall and winter I use mine year round. It's great to pull-out in the summer when the temps reach over 100 degrees like they have around here this week. Since I make crock-pot meals so frequently I have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly recipe wise. Some recipes look deceptively delicious in the magazine and fail to live up to expectations once they are prepared. Here is my list of my favorite crock-pot recipes from my previous posts:


Country-Style Barbecue Ribs



Curried Chicken Stew


Black Bean and Butternut Squash Chili


Moroccan Ribs

Mustard Greens


Pinto Beans

There are so many crock-pot recipes that I love that this is only a small fraction of them. The last two recipes are my own. I make a lot of pinto beans and mustard greens, they are both delicious! Check back tomorrow for my favorite dessert recipes!

  6. I'm amongst those that only uses theirs in the colder weather - except for when I make beans for a crowd. But these recipes make me want to dust it off!
