Are you looking for kid-approved crockpot recipes with easy prep? Whether you’re facing a busy week, summer heat, or you just need some extra time, slow cooker recipes can save the day when you need a simple, quick way to get dinner on the table without going out to eat.
I love that these recipes are so easy to put together. They’ve been a real lifesaver for us on busy days when I don’t have time to cook dinner. On nights when the kids have activities in the evening, I try to cook with our crockpot so we’ll have something to eat when we get home.
If we end up having leftovers, these crockpot meals re-heat nicely, and make a great lunch for the next day.
