Honey, I’m homeeeee! The last 4 weeks have been IN. SANE. I traveled to 5 different places including Wisconsin, Arizona, Denver, New Jersey, and New York City. Guess what? I am home in Minneapolis until Thanksgiving shenanigans start in November minus a quick trip to Madison for the Badger Homecoming (I’ll be wearing a Minnesota shirt under my red shirt).
I can not begin to tell you how happy I am to be home. I’m happy to be sleeping in my own bed. I’m happy to be working out on my own schedule. And I’m happy to be making my own food. I’m especially happy that this week and next is peak leaf changing in the Twin Cities. You bet yer bippy I’ll be making my way to the St. Croix and Lebanon Hills to fully take advantage of these beautiful colors.
To celebrate me being back in Minneapolis for the next 6 weeks + Fall– we’ve rounded up 50 of our favorite ways to use your slow cooker! After all, FFF will be 7 years old in November and we’ve got a boatload of slow cooker recipes!
Let’s talk about slow cookers for a second here. 1. If you don’t already have a slow cooker, you get your ass to the store and buy one and 2. we love THIS one. We love it because it’s big and because it does a good job. There’s nothing worse than a slow cooker that’s too small and that doesn’t get as hot as it says it does (speaking from experience, here).
This round-up features some of our favorite FFF recipes as well as other pulled from our blogging frands. You’ll find meat-filled dinners, vegetarian lunches, meal-prep lunches/dinner, delicious breakfast, and then some! Most of these can be cooked on either low for 3-4 hours or high for 6-8 hours. It all depends how good your slow cooker is 😀
