Easy (and quick) Crockpot Recipes

Sharing is caring!

We are a busy family. Life is go, go, go. And I do not necessarily mean we are on the go leaving the house. Life is just busy!

Am I preaching to the choir?

Without meal planning, dinner would not get on the table for our family.

Recipes with short ingredient lists that require little to no babysitting are a must for me. And the crockpot… it is my most used kitchen appliance.

Here are my go-to quick and easy crockpot recipes that are perfect for busy moms like you and me.

What a great idea for Fall! Crock pot meals are such a necessity in the fall - not to mention how great they make the house smell! I am hosting an "It's Fall Y'all ~ Linky Party" .... I would like to invite you to share this project, and other Fall related projects/recipes, you may have. All links will be pinned to a board dedicated to the party. You can find the party at Love Bakes Good Cakes. Hope to see you there!
