Go-To Crock Pot Recipes

My crock pot is a work horse in our kitchen. With three kids and busy schedules all around, I love when I’m not required to be tied to the stove come five o’clock. With the mix of fall weather and after school sports and practices, I find myself reaching for the crock pot on a regular basis this time of year. And then I find myself preparing the same handful of recipes over and over… and over! I realized that I needed to expand my list of go-to’s so I took the logical step and reached out to my Instagram friends asking for recipe favs. My mouth watered as I scrolled through the responses! I decided the best way to round everything up would be to share everything in a blog post so that we can all bookmark and refer back.

Below you’ll find a go-to list of yours and my favorite crock pot recipes. If you have any others that you think everyone would enjoy, feel free to share! I plan to keep this list updated over time. Enjoy!

    What is your fave?? I’m eyeing the garlic butter chicken and zuppa toscano. And beef barley! Too many to choose from before Souptober’s over.

      I’m slowly working through those that were recommended to me (still a lot to try!) but there are too many favs to pick from! The garlic chicken is SO easy and delish, nothing fancy, but a solid dinner. The beef barley is fantastic. We often do it on the stove, but it’s nice to have options. We made the Acini di Pepe soup for your parents last night and they loved it. And of course Zuppa Toscano and White Chicken Chili (that’s a regular here) are great. And I just tried the glazed pork last week that someone sent to me and oh my goodness! That wasn’t helpful at all, was it, haha!
