Easy crockpot dinner recipes for busy moms

Are you looking for easy crockpot dinner recipes? I am a busy person too, juggling homeschooling, extra-mural activities and working on my blogs. Cooking elaborate meals is not always possible, especially for the days when I’m not in the house. Crockpots and slow cookers come in handy on such days. My other problem is that I am not much of a cooker, with the only crockpot meals that I master being stews.

It is always a challenge for me to find recipes that the whole family loves – especially one that appeals to my 9-year-old daughter. She is a picky eater. This recipe combines a few ingredients and takes a few minutes to prepare them.

Another yummy creation for the whole family!  Mac and Cheese is a staple in my house (for the kids 😀),  and throwing the ingredients in a crockpot saves me a lot of time.

Easy Orange Chicken

I’m glad I found this Orange Chicken recipe. An almost similar recipe landed on my lap once, but it was tedious.  Needless to say, it did not come out right.

Baked Potatoes

The slow cooker baked potatoes are a genius! Just top them with bacon, avos, sour cream, and you have a decent meal to serve yourself and the family. One of the best easy crockpot dinner recipes so far! I don’t eat potatoes, so I’d substitute with sweet potatoes instead.

Meatball Subs

I am not a sub person, but one can benefit from this recipe by substituting the bread for something else. The gist of the recipe is in the meatballs themselves.

Easy crockpot dinner recipes for vegetarians

I love going meat-free now and then.  Vegetarian meals are just as tasty as meat based meals.  It can be a challenge though to put together easy crockpot dinner recipes when you are not a vegetarian.  Here is a list that I find useful.

  1. Vegan Irish Stew 
  2. Slow Cooker Veggie Lasagna Recipe
  3. Chickpea and potato sweet chili
  4. Butternut squash risotto
  5. Homemade minestrone

I just love all these easy crockpot dinner recipes, and will even try the vegetarian variety.  We are approaching winter here in the Southern Hemisphere, and there is nothing like a good slow-cooker meal to warm the coming days.
