Easy Slow Cooker Recipes for Hectic Weeknights

These slow cooker recipes guarantee you’ll have a hot, delicious meal on your dinner plate – even on the most hectic days!

Wake up. Commute. Work. Commute. Gym. Shower. Dinner. Bed. Repeat.

Sound familiar?

Chances are you have a variation of that schedule during the week, and it’s probably way more hectic than that if you have kids. I admit that sometimes (okay, most of the time) it feels like dinner is an afterthought for me. I’m so focused on everything else I have going on that I forget how important it is to plan healthy meals.

Recently my friends have been talking about their slow cookers and how much of a lifesaver it is to have their dinners cooking during the day while they’re at work. When they finally get home at the end of the day, they have a hot, healthy dinner all ready and waiting. I’m not sure why I hadn’t thought of it before, but rest assured I quickly added one of these handy gadgets to my wedding registry and can’t wait to start using it!

Here are some of the yummy slow cooker recipes I can’t wait to make:
