10 Days of Crock Pot Recipes

I’m very excited to be participating in the 10 Days of Homeschooling again (for me it will be 8 days due to my site issues).  This time instead of talking about frugal homeschooling, Ill be discussing crock pot cooking.

I know many people love using the crock pot and truly it is a homeschooling mom’s (or any busy mom’s) best friend in the kitchen.

If you aren’t using your crock pot regularly you should. Here are a few reasons why.

Crock Pots don’t heat up the kitchen.

During the summer months, keep your kitchen cool by using your crock pot. You can even put your crock pot outside to keep your kitchen super cool.

Crock Pots do the work for you.

To borrow a line from a cheesy infomercial, crock pots truly are set it and forget it. Put your meal in the crock pot in the morning and have a delicious dinner that evening.

Crock Pots make inexpensive meat taste great.

The slow cooking method is a great way to make tough cuts of beef fall apart after eight hours in the crock pot. Using a less expensive cut of meat will save on your grocery bill.

Crock Pots save you money.

I’m sure I’m not the only one who has had one of those days where school is finishing up around 4:45pm? Rather than spend $20 or $30 on delivery pizza, if you are using your crock pot your meal will be ready to go, not matter what time you finish school.

Over the next eight days I’ll be sharing with you crock pot cooking tips, recipe ideas, and all around crock pot goodness to help you get dinner on the table in less time and for less money.

Be sure to visit these brilliant women during our 10 days adventure between November 7th-18th! I love these ladies and we know you will too.

  1. Can’t wait! I love love love my slow cooker!

  2. Aren’t crockpots the best? There is no end to the number of dishes you can put in a crockpot, including warm, chocolatey desserts. Looking forward to ten days of more recipes!

  3. I am so excited to have found your blog! I spent only 2 hours today prepping and have 12 *huge* meals waiting for us in ziploc bags in the freezer, ready for me to toss into the crock pot and go! I also cooked a whole chicken (for the first time!) in the crock pot tonight too & your blog walked me through it! You’re right, it’s delicious and SO easy! Thanks!!
