I simply remember my favorite foods and then I don’t feel so baaaaaad!!!

Now that you have that song in your head for the rest of the day we can get on to business. I have probably cooked, oh, about 500 different slow cooker recipes in the last 2 1/2 years. I have my own system of rating each recipe (which you can read more about on my blog). But just because I’ve rated something with 5 stars doesn’t mean I’ve made it a million times. It just means I really liked it. Why haven’t I made it again? Well maybe the ingredients were a little hard to find. Or maybe it just took too much time. Or maybe I loved it but nobody else in my family did. So I’ve decided to compile a list of my favorite recipes. These have passed an important 3-pronged test:

  1. It tastes good
  2. It was fairly easy to make and the ingredients are easy to find
  3. My family liked itThese are the recipes that I keep coming back to. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
