I am absolutly obsessed with the slow cooker!

I love chucking everything in and going about my day and then at dinner time – a yummy meal ready to eat with minimal effort!

I make cakes, desserts, side, pasta, stews, chops (you name it – I will try it in the slow cooker!)

Does anyone have a great family favourite they make in the slow cooker? I am always on the hunt for new things to make.

It is the one kitchen contraption I would never give up!!!!

  • Agreed. My slow cooker is always out in winter.


  • I have so many favourite slow cooker recipes, hard to choose just one! I love gadgets and equipment for the kitchen.


  • They can be really helpful, can’t they?


  • I also love what you can make in a slow cooker, its so easy but after a bad experience using one once, where i used a cheats recipe base and even though i followed the recipe to a tee, I was lucky i was at home as with in two hours it was smoking and starting to over heat. I dont know what caused it as i have used it since and not had a problem, although the next time i used the same recipe base i added twice as much water to what i was told just to be safe. But since that experience i will not leavi=e it on in the house without me there.

    • I agree, I don’t like much the idea of leaving it unattended at home either.


  • I’ve started enjoying the slow cooker just a couple of months ago. And it’s impressive indeed. The meat turns out so tender.You can find a lot of great recipes in Mouths of Mums. I’ve posted some I’ve tried myself. Try this one for example https://mouthsofmums.com.au/recipe/chicken-lentil-and-pumpkin-curry/
    I loved it!


  • I love my slow cooker. I make my Christmas pudding in mine. Recipe is in the recipe section
