This past weekend and week have been all about slow cooker recipes. I’ve gone on and on about my love for my slow cooker and slow cooker recipes many times before, but seriously, this week she’s been my right and left arms, too!

Favorite Slow Cooker Recipes |

You see, we’re hosting two parties at my house this weekend, an engagement party for one niece and an 18th birthday party for another. As you can imagine, I decided it was the perfect time to clean out pantries, closets, and the cabinets under my bathroom sink.

And then I start thinking, “Why in the world am I cleaning out under my bathroom sink? There is stuff that has been hidden under here for five years for a reason!”

You’d think I’d just concentrate on getting my rugs cleaned and make sure all the light bulbs were working in my lamps, but nooooo, I have to take it 100 steps farther and decide to clean out places that surely no one will ever see during a party.

So, anyway, back to my favorite slow cooker recipes that we’ve survived off of this week plus plenty more that we love.

Slow Cooker Vegetable Soup |


Slow Cooker Vegetable Soup has to be one of the easiest recipes to toss all of the ingredients into the slow cooker and let it go for the day. It tempts me all day long with that glorious smell! Add a little bit of cornbread and we’re set!


BBQ Pork Chops |


Slow Cooker BBQ Pork Chops are so ridiculously easy that it is embarassing to even call it a recipe. But oh are they scrumptious!


Balsamic Roast Beef |

You probably could have guess that my balsamic roast beef had to happen. It is such a great recipe to cook once and then eat at least twice. We had roast and then french dip sandwiches and then stuffed mushrooms. It was heavenly.

If we’d not decided on the balsamic roast beef, this espresso roast beef I shared a while back would have been my go-to! Oh my word, it makes my mouth water just thinking about it.

Chicken Enchiladas Recipe from


And tonight, well these chicken enchiladas are happening in my house. I can’t wait!


Slow Cooker Oatmeal |

At the beginning of the week, I toss steel cut oats into the slow cooker for this overnight slow cooker oatmeal. That along with my slow cooker grits, baked bacon, and hard cooked eggs in the oven or some yogurt and we’ve not realized I hadn’t cooked in the morning!

  1. would love, love, love this slow-cooker. Haven’t been feeling well for several months, so do more slow-cooker meals than ever. Want to definitely try the Balsamic Roast. Have some great balsamic and hubby loves roast beef

  2. I love soup, almost any soup, and could eat soup 365/6 days a year. So, should I be the recipient of that s-l-o-w cooker, soup it will be.

  3. Your recipe for Slow Cooker BBQ Pork Chops looks yummy. It would be perfect for a weeknight meal. I’m going to try that one soon. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I want to try your balsamic roast beef and your chicken tetrazini. I already follow you on pinterest and by email. I pinned your chicken tetrazini.

  5. I would like to try the slow cooker Pot Roast. I pinned that recipe to Pinterest (Elisabeth Arian), followed Add a Pinch on Pinterest and on Twitter. I also subscribed by e-mail.
