Which came first, Fall or the slow cooker recipes? But seriously, there’s not much better than coming home from a windy, rainy day at work, stumbling in through the door, and being met with the smell of some lamb that has been marinating and cooking ALL. DAY. LONG.
The slow cooker is, obviously, a wonderful invention because it allows you to essentially throw together some random foods and spices and come out with something wonderful. It does all the cooking. Oh, and the whole one pot thing? Genius.

Here’s a line up of a few of our favorite slow-cooker recipes.

1. Tuscan Sausage and Kale Soup 

Veggies? Check. Protein? Check. Delicious? Check. This recipe literally has two steps and is full of ALL the goodness. It’s also perfect for reheating for lunch the day after. Full recipe

2. Santa Fe Chicken 

Leave dry chicken behind. This recipe gives you chicken that is tender, falling apart, juicy and packed full of flavor. Serve it on black or wild rice, or on corn tortillas. Full recipe

3. Fish Curry 

Chicken and beef are not the only proteins you can cook in a slow cooker! And this dish really makes the case for cooking fish this way more often. We can smell it already… Full recipe

4. Ranch Roasted Potatoes 

Betcha never thought of roasting potatoes in your slow cooker before! Well, think again. It works. And they are delicious. Full recipe.

Put the hipster bread bakers to shame. This stuff right here is the real deal. You will need to keep an eye on it every now and then, but it will turn out great. Who needs a bread machine? Full recipe.

7. Chicken and Sweet Potato 

Six ingredients, 10 minutes of prep. It can’t get much simpler, or effortless than that. And did we mention the flavour is phenomenal? Full recipe.
