Hassle Free Holiday Meals : Crockpot Favorites

I have a secret!! I don’t really “cook.”

Nope not even during the holidays. And the best part is no one complains!

It’s been a running joke in my family that I’m the “Crockpot Queen.” However, joking aside they save my butt when it comes to any kind of cooking, even holiday. When I was working as a teacher, I had to use one or else getting a hot meal not from a restaurant was very unlikely. During that 11 years, I learned to get creative with recipes, bought way too many cookbooks and became a Pinterest over-pinner. Don’t laugh. You know you’re one too.

Through the years I’ve established quite the collection of crockpots, and believe it or not they all serve a purpose. I literally can cook an entire meal of entree and multiple side items in crockpots only. I think that’s quite the accomplishment. Best part?? You can too and your family will think you’re a star chef!

So here links to a few of my favorite recipes that will keep your holiday jolly and your bellies full.

From my kitchen to yours, Bon Appetit!

Bonus tip...get an electric pressure cooker aka InstaPot. It saves tons of time and can be used as a regular crock pot too.
