From soups, to desserts, to main dishes, I am constantly creating new and easy slow cooker meals that all of us will enjoy. Of course when I do I love sharing them with all of you to help you out as well.

Sometimes all you have time to do is a little bit of prep in the morning, that’s where crockpots come in SO handy! They literally last forever in a day, and you can’t just own one. I have a few different sizes.
One that is a perfect size for dips and a small casserole, a large version if I know company is coming over, and one that is perfect for feeding our family of 5. These are my favorite styles I recommend everyone has in their cupboards.
- Large crockpot – perfect for a larger crowd and crockpot soup recipes
- Casserole crockpot – not just for casseroles but perfect for dips too
- Medium crockpot – perfect for our family of 5 with maybe 1 serving for leftovers the next day
- Disney lovers crockpot – my next purchase!
I can say I have never used crockpot liners, but some people swear by them to eliminate some of the mess/scrubbing. When it comes to many meals I almost prefer it cooked in the slow cooker. Even if I had the time to make it on the stovetop the gradual slow cooking really brings out a lot of flavor in just about any recipe, especially soups.
Here are some of our favorites with links to a total of over 50 different crockpot recipes for you to try and enjoy. Let us know which one(s) are your favorite!
