I’m always on the look-out for family-friendly slow cooker recipes. I use my slow cooker all year-round, but I do have to say that I use it more in Fall and Winter!
If you’re like me and trying to balance work, kids, home, spouse/partner and still need to get dinner on the table in between rushing from activities and sports after school, you probably need to have a repertoire of quick, easy, healthy meals your family will love. To be honest, my slow cooker has saved me on numerous accounts!
One of my favourite soups is Split Pea Soup. I grew up on Habitant Soup, so the aroma, the texture, the flavour of Split Pea Soup just transports me back to my childhood. I have a Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup that I like to make. There are never any leftovers when I make this.
We love enlisting the help of fellow bloggers to compile recipe round-ups for our readers. Now that the cold weather is upon is, we’re thinking it’s time for some good ‘ol slow cooker recipes to share!
Now, one thing I have never thought of was making breakfast in my crock pot! Merry About Town’s Ginger Peach Crock Pot Steel Cut Oats is absolutely genius!
My husband and daughter just LOVE ribs. I usually make their favourite rib recipe inspired from a favourite restaurant my family used to frequent when I was a kid growing up in Montreal. It’s actually a pretty labour-intensive recipe. It’s SO good, but takes a while to make. Thankfully, Merry has an Easy Slow Cooker BBQ Ribs recipe!
One of our family favourite soups is French Onion Soup. My kid loves onions so much that she will swipe some raw chopped onions as I’m chopping them while preparing supper! She loves raw onions that much! She loves sauteed onions, onion rings, roasted onions…She just loves onions!
I cannot tell you how excited I was when we discovered Forgetful Momma’s Slow Cooker French Onion Soup!
Who doesn’t love Honey Garlic Meatballs? I love honey garlic everything! Forgetful Momma’s Honey Garlic Slow Cooker Meatballs rank high on my family’s list of what to eat for supper.
Years ago, when we were at a Chinese restaurant in New York City with my family, my husband had a dish that had duck and Hoisin sauce. Ever since that day, my husband (and daughter) have had a thing for Hoisin sauce. They love that stuff!
When I saw Family, Food & Travel’s Slow Cooker Chicken with Hoisin Sauce, I knew I absolutely had to include it in this slow cooker recipe round up!
Also from Family, Food & Travel is her Slow Cooker Chicken and Black Bean Soup with Quinoa recipe.
If you and the kids get a bit peckish at the arena or at the dance studio (or whatever activity you’re at), you’ll probably want to tuck Family, Food & Travel’s Homemade Slow Cooker Bits and Bites recipe in your back pocket. Okay, it might be easier to pin it on Pinterest.
