Since I am a vegetarian, the vegetable pot pie is something that I would like to try in the slow cooker. Thanks for the link to the recipe.
Things do not get easier than a slow cooker recipe. One that is low in calories is just an added bonus, but not the only reason I would use the slow cooker.
Just like my husband always says, “I am never going to turn away from a good slow cooker recipe” :)
These look awesome, plus they are low in calories so that is a major bonus.
Total bonus that these recipes are low in calories. I love the fact that I can whip this altogether and just let it sit in the slow cooker for the afternoon.
I love to use the slow cooker on a lazy day. It is just a bonus that these recipes are a little healthier than what I normally put into one :)
If you are going to give me a slow cooker recipe or two, I am going to listen up right away. I LOVE to “cook” in one of these things and even got a larger one for my birthday because of that reason.
I do not care what anyone says, the slow cooker is the best thing around! You can make so many meals and with this list, now you can make healthy ones!
Does anyone know that you can cook just a bout anything in a slow cooker? I have even used it to re-heat foods, since I am not thrilled to use the microwave if I do not have to.
I think these are great recipes. Every one has been in a pinch for time and slow cookers come to the rescue at that point!
Crock pot, or slow cooker, recipes are my favorite. I make a mean chili in our slow cooker and I think I might tray a few of these to keep the calories down to a minimum.
My girlfriend is going to freak when I show her this. We were just talking about this type of thing. I love the slow cooker and any time that I can get recipes for it, even better! Being able to save on the calories is just a bonus.
I have seen that more men are likely to “cook” when a recipe sends them to the slow cooker! I am not going to complain, unless the meal does not turn out and it was a waste. A+ for effort, however.
I am so happy to have had the slow cooker in my house. Now my husband can follow recipes and actually make a meal for us that we can enjoy!
I have done Crockpot Quinoa before. It is VERY good, in fact, I have recommended it many different times before.
The Crock Pot Bolognese looks sooooooooo good. I am going to try this sometime this week! Thanks for posting these slow cooker recipes!
Slow cookers were invented so that I could actual “cook” something :) These are great recipes that I might just have to try!
Artichoke, Roasted Red Pepper & Feta Frittata is going to be great when I try it later this week. I have always been a fan of slow cooker recipes!
I have made my oatmeal in the slow cooker, it is one of my favorite meals out of there. You can add so many things to it to add the flavor that you want!
One of my favorite to use gadgets in the entire house! The slow cooker has so many uses, including the ones you have listed here.
Gadget!? LOL. Nice. Not a whole lot of technology here, but you know that already. The slow cooker is the lazy mans over and I am OK with that!
