26 Satisfying Slow Cooker Recipes

Skip slaving over a hot stove to get a satisfying home-cooked meal on the table and let your slow cooker do the work for you!

If you've had a chance to review our menu plan for September, then you've probably noticed that I've included a handful of slow cooker meals. Believe it or not, there are times when even food bloggers would rather do anything else but cook. With Caroline growing more active with each passing hour (and getting closer to crawling with each passing day), I want to spend less time slaving over a hot stove and more time with her.

I'm calling on my slow cooker to help me out, to do the work for me so I can concentrate on other, more important, things. And, since full recipes can often yield 8-10 servings, I'm going to freeze half of each dish to save for another night down the road.

To help me achieve my goal of spending less time in the kitchen, I've put together this photo-heavy round-up of 26 Satisfying Slow Cooker Recipes that includes appetizers, main dishes (including breakfast), and snacks. If you're looking for some new slow cooker meals to try, then be sure to check it out!
