Five Easy Crockpot Recipes

five easy crockpot recipesWe are in the midst of a heat wave here in Northern California.  Just the thought of being in the kitchen in the evening is enough to make me want to jump in a tub of ice water!!

We have a few options for avoiding the stovetop and oven.  Fast food, grilling and salads are three of them.  But one of my all-time favorite methods of cooking is in a crockpot.  It’s easy, takes very little prep time and doesn’t heat up the kitchen.  If you don’t have a slow cooker, you can find them cheap at yard sales.

Here are my five favorite (and easy) crockpot recipes:
