I’m a fairly new when it comes to using a slow cooker (I only bought my first one last year!) and I’m now kicking myself for not doing it sooner! I LOVE the convenience of having dinner cooking away during the day and then not having to do too much to get it onto the table, and I admit I’ve become a bit obsessed with searching for and saving yummy slow cooker recipes, with my ‘must make’ list growing every week!
While using a slow cooker seems to be more of a ‘winter thing’ they really can be used all year round and are a MUCH cooler alternative to having a hot oven blasting for hours in your kitchen. I use my slow cooker for making both dinners and desserts (we LOVE puddings made in it!) and I decided to put together a collection of some of my families favourite slow cooker recipes to share with you too.
