My Favorite Slow Cooker Recipes

Thai Chicken Soup

Guess what? I finally have a slow-cooker in my life! Apparently I dropped enough hints, because my mom and my mother-in-law each got us this beauty for Christmas (yes, we returned one), and my favorite hobby of the new year has been testing out recipes that I can throw in the cooker in the morning… then reap the rewards at the end of the day. I am learning, however, that not all slow-cooker recipes are created equal. There’s a major difference between the mushy, bland quality of some crockpot recipes of the past, and the full-of-flavor, tenderized, comforting dishes we’ve recently been devouring. In honor of these chilly winter days where my tastebuds call out for the latter, thought I’d round up the very best slow cooker recipes I’ve discovered so far. Click through, and I’d love to know in the comments: what’s your favorite slow-cooker recipe? Give me the dish!
