Favorite Crock Pot Recipes | Photo by SaucyGlo

Most days around my house tend to spiral out of control. What might have started out as a calm ‘birds-chirping’ kind of morning usually ends up as a poop-explosion, emergency-bath kind of situation. I am often still rocking my husband’s bathrobe by lunch time. While I’m not entirely proud of the morning madness, I love that my time is spent with my daughter and I know that she won’t be this little forever.

One thing that I have really come to rely on throughout these crazy days is my trusty crock-pot. I may have soldiered through the day accomplishing very little in terms of household chores, but when my hubby catches a whiff of my pot roast…I am a hero!

Here are three easy recipes that you can basically plop in the crock-pot and ignore until dinner time. Usually when I make these, I have enough left over to freeze for a few lunches throughout the week.

In Him,
