No matter what time of year it is, my slow cooker is always my best friend.  I only started using it a couple of years ago and instantly fell in love. (I know, what was I thinking?) Since then, it’s become a huge time saver and what’s more, the food is delish! With about 5 million other things to squeeze into a day, why not making cooking a little easier? I’ve scoured the web and leaned on some of my blogging buddies to come up with this fabulous big list of 44 slow cooker recipes with 4 ingredients or less! Please do note, that I do not take credit for creating the recipes, unless they are on my site. I am simply linking to recipes for your convenience and hopefully enjoyment ;)

    Wow, thanks for these! For sure I am going to fix the Cranberry BBQ Chicken! I can taste it now, I am so hungry for it! (I’ll fix the others, too but this one just makes my mouth water)

  12. cori-jo p says:

    Oh boy! Tried out the monkey bread and it is amazing! So easy to do and clean up after. I picked up the biscuits as a last minute idea and was able to make it while I was making other dishes and they were ready when I was done. What a perfect treat for the big kid in the house for the first football game of the season (hall of fame game)! Thanks for sharing!

  13. Thank you so much for including me in the roundup. Slow cookers are the best!

  14. Love this! Definitely doing the spicy buffalo chicken tonight!!

  15. I’m gone to inform my little brother, that he should also pay a visit this website on regular basis to take
    updated from newest news.

  16. But, committing to right choices and developing habits that will
    help you stay healthy can be simple if you follow a few helpful tips and
    determine to keep your eyes on the ultimate goal – a happy, healthier you.
    This can help your body produce protective hormones faster.

    and then you have to realize that this diet shouldn’t be that cuts back on your eating habits completely, because many times these aren’t going
    to have the proper nutrients for what you need as you are doing aerobics.
