16 slow cooker recipes that are perfect for you to try. Some are very simple, others might require a few different ingredients, but the method is the same.

One of the biggest issues adults have is planning their evening meals. It doesn’t matter if you are a parent and struggling to find time to make nutritious meals or just someone who has a committed job and works long hours. Whatever situation you find yourself in, there is nothing worse than getting to the end of a busy day and then having to figure out what you are going to make for your evening meal.

The truth is, wouldn’t it be great if you got home and your meal was already prepared and cooked for you? While the cooking fairies do not exist, although I think many of us wished they would, there is one kitchen appliance that can help you out. The slow cooker!

However, while many of us will have a slow cooker in our cupboards, the chances are you don’t use it as often as you should. The great thing about the slow cooker (or crock-pot) is you pop all of the ingredients into it in the morning, and then by the end of the day, your meal will be cooked. How great is that? The problem usually lies in figuring out what to cook there.

This is where I have you covered. I have found 16 slow cooker recipes that are perfect for you to try. Some are very simple, others might require a few different ingredients, but the method is the same. Pop them all into the slow cooker and let it do its thing. Without further ado, here are 16 slow cooker recipes that you have to try.
