- Crockpot Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti– one of my most popular recipes on my site ever! Lots of cheese, chicken, peppers and pasta!
- Crockpot BBQ Chicken Cheddar Sliders – Cook the chicken first, add to slider rolls and broil with extra cheddar. So so delicious. One of my kid’s favorite dinners.
- Slow Cooker Pot Roast with Buttermilk Parmesan Mashed Cauliflower – The perfect rainy or cold weather crockpot meal. Slow cooked pot roast with carrots and onions, served oer mashed cauliflower. Mashed potatoes work just as well too!
- Crockpot Chicken Taco Meat – I made this recipe with frozen chicken, let it cook all day and shred to serve in tacos for dinner. So simple and you only need salsa, green chiles, taco seasoning and chicken.
- Crockpot Bolognese Sauce – I love cooking Bolognese all day, but can’t always watch it on the stove. This is the perfect set it and forget it meal. Cook pasta when you’re ready to eat!
- Crockpot Pesto Stuffed Shells – A great Sunday dinner meal that you can make in advance. The creamy pesto filling is SO dreamy!
- Creamy Crockpot Cauliflower Soup – This is a lower carb soup that has simple ingredients that doesn’t take very long to cook because it’s vegetarian. Top with grated cheddar cheese and bacon for extra deliciousness!
- Slow Cooked Tri Tips & Gravy – The recipe that put Lauren’s Latest on the map! Probably the most popular recipe I have for a simple stew. The gravy in this is like velvet. So smooth and delicious.
- Crockpot BBQ Chicken Wings – For a different kind of dinner made in the crockpot, give chicken wings a try! Cook them in the crockpot and finish them off under the broiler. Great for a simple supper or game day.
- Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup – a veggie packed soup that tastes great with all the taco toppings you could handle. Guacamole, cheese and cilantro are my favorites.

- Healthier Crockpot Sloppy Joes – This recipe is half meat and half veggies, but no one will know! Everything cooks down together, so when you serve over rolls, no one will see or be able to taste all the onions, zucchini and squash. Yes I’m serious.
- Root Beer Pulled Pork Sandwiches – For those who love a good pork butt, try my pulled pork sandwiches made with rootbeer! The sweet flavor cooks down and makes that tender pork amazing!
