Slow Cooker Recipes

Slow cooking in a crock pot? Look no further than our delicious and easy slow cooker recipes—from breakfasts to soups to dinners.

We love slow cooking because you can have home-style meals with a busy schedule.

A slow cooker heats food at a low wattage so you can be away from home all day working or running errands while your food cooks!

Slow cooking is also useful if you have guests or you are entertaining.

Slow recipes are those that go in a sort of crock pot that heats at a very low temperature--not "fast" or, in fact, involving any pressure at all.

Roseann, take it easy. There is a huge difference between a "Pressure Cooker" and a "Slow Cooker." You cannot make a "Pressure Cooker Bomb"(used in Boston) with a slow cooker.
