About our Crockpot Recipes
Our Slow Cooker Recipes are Delicious
We aren’t here to waste anyone’s time. If a recipe isn’t great, it simply doesn’t make the cut to be in our recipe index. Like you, if we’re going to spend time cooking, we want some yummy food on the table! So deliciousness was our first and most important goal.
Most can be Made in the Instant Pot too!
Most of our Crock Pot Recipes have instructions for the Instant Pot. We worked hard to perfect the cooking times for each of these cookers to ensure you aren’t overcooking (or undercooking) your food.
Our Recipes are Freezer Friendly
Every recipe can be made fresh or prepped as a freezer meal. That means it must freeze, thaw, and prepare successfully, with no major textural or taste changes along the way.
Made with Mostly Whole Foods
What makes our recipes stand out from most Crock Pot recipes is that they are primarily made with whole-food ingredients. Each one reflects our commitment to the “whole-foods philosophy,” where cooking at home, carefully selecting all-natural ingredients and eating a variety of vegetables and fruits, whole grains, healthy fats, and local or organic meats are the foundations of a healthy diet.
Easy to Prepare
We know you have a packed schedule. As much as you may love cooking (or not), your time is precious. So we’ve intentionally created recipes that are simple enough for anyone to make. We tried to find the shortest path to the best result in every single one.
