Autumn is in the air, which means it’s time to dust off the slow cooker. I love coming home to the scent of dinner that has been cooking all day filling the house. It’s the epitome of autumnal cosiness and marks the start of a new season.
Plus as busy routines start up again after a summer break, it’s good to know that dinner is one thing that can be sorted in advance and pretty easily too!
While putting this list of easy slow cooker recipes together I came across some amazing sweet treats which I am just dying to try. I may even consider investing in a second slow cooker just so I can have dinner and desert sorted with little fuss.
I hope this list serves up some much-needed midweek super inspiration. Enjoy!
