  2. Kristi Brown

    Thrilled to see these! Love my crockpot and Instapot but they have been neglected over the summer 🙂 Anxious to try some of these and add to my usual rotation!

  3. Christine M.

    This is exactly what I’ve needed! We are getting so bored of the same old crockpot meals (I love the crockpot for what I know will be busy nights). Thanks.

  4. Katie Massie

    I’m trying to be more organized this year, especially since my husband is now working evenings. I’m looking forward to trying a lot of these recipes. Saved to my Pinterest 🙂👍. Thanks!

  5. Emilee

    My kids are getting older and with all the extracurriculars, dinner time just got crazier. I’m going to have to cook my way through this list so something’s ready to eat when we need it.

  6. Erica Johnson

    Can’t wait to try these! With two kids and dance, Cub Scouts and Fall baseball we are busy. Italian Chicken Pasta is first on the list. You should take a day or weekend trip to Philadelphia. Not far from NYC and tons to do for kids and adults! Our zoo is the best 😁

  7. Alyece West

    Thank you for this post! Back to school has been crazy for my family and this is just what I needed to get us through dinner time this week ☺️

  8. Lori A.

    Love this list of crockpot recipes. We use our crockpot constantly and use crockpot freezer meals all the time. So many of these recipes are now on the “try” list.

  9. Erin From AK

    Looking forward to trying several of these out, with a kindergartener who plays hockey and a 7 month old I’m always looking for fast and healthy dinners! Thank you for sharing these recipes!

  10. Jessica

    Thank you for the list! I love dump and go recipes and I love that they are your recipes and ones you have actually made rather than a list of links complied from other blogs that the posting blogger has probably not made herself.

  11. Tamara H

    I was so excited to find this in my inbox! Thank you for consolidating your many wonderful slow cooker recipes into one place. This is so helpful during this crazy back-to-school season!

  12. Rachel Evans

    Thank you for rounding these up! I love crockpot recipes especially in the fall – I think less light hours make me feel like dinner should be earlier. Can’t wait to try these!

  13. Nicole Austin

    Definitely looking forward to trying some of these since baby #6 due next month! Thanks for coming up with such a great variety of meals to try! Also love hearing about your NY adventures.

  14. Jill Rao

    These crock pot recipes look amazing!! Perfect for the fall! Can’t wait to try them. Thank you 🙂 PS. I live in CT and travel to the city every few months with my hubby……love hearing about your city adventures 🙂

  15. Victoria E

    With having a family of 5, I can’t wait to try these crockpot recipes to hopefully make night time easier. It’s hard with three hungry little ones and anything to make the witching hour better is a win in my book!

  16. Judy D

    I’m definitely going to try a few of these Crockpot meals. I have a question about #19. Am I correct in assuming the ingredients don’t have to be frozen first? If I make it fresh, should I simply let it sit and marinade before cooking?
