If you haven’t tried out making dinner with your slow cooker, then I am here to tell you to get it out and start cooking! The slow cooker is so handy, and you can make just about anything in it! Just get all of your ingredients ready and put them in the slow cooker earlier in the day. It cooks all day while you are gone and is like magic when you come home. Plus, your house smells like someone has been home cooking all day. It is a great way to get amazing flavors and very tender meat!

Slow Cooker Tips
Cooking slow cooker dinner recipes is not hard! But I have come up with a few tips that will make it even easier for you during cooking and cleanup!
- Slow cooker size: The most common size to get for a slow cooker is 5-6 quarts. These are big enough to cook a meal for a family but not small like the appetizer ones.
- Spray: If you spray your slow cooker with some nonstick cooking spray before you put your food in! Then, your cleanup will be so much easier! You can thank me for this tip later.
- Preheat the Slow Cooker: A lot of people don’t think to do this but treat your crockpot like an oven. Turn it on about 20 minutes before, just while you are prepping your food. Heating it up beforehand will help with even cooking!
