What’s not to love about coming home at the end of the day and having supper waiting?

That is exactly why my slow cooker is the single most useful countertop appliance I own. Today I thought I’d bring you a collection of slow cooker recipes that I’ve posted here on SouthernPlate.com. I hope you enjoy them!

This is my go-to Sunday dinner. I make the rice in the morning and put it in the fridge, then put the chicken on high before we leave for church.

Ever make a pot roast and have it turn out dry? Dry roasts will be forever behind you now!

  1. Interesting article – I am thankful for the specifics – Does anyone know if my company might be able to locate a fillable FR ASIS-1 example to type on ?

  2. Found your recipe site yesterday and really love the recipes that are all terrific to use and be more organized in the kitchen.
    I’m RN who does travel nursing mainly working in ICU 12 hr. night shifts. My slow cooker is with me coast to coast. My Sis flew in a week ago and I made a few things in there and she was overwhelmed with how wonderful food turns out and how easy it is to put all the food in and it’s so easy to put together and the taste is indescribably delish!
    So I see that you have some nice recipes on here and yes, I will be trying them out. I stay in extended stays so I have a 2 burner cook top,a small toaster oven and my slow cooker. On the cook top I have a Calphalon grill pan and a small 3 quart Dutch oven and a chicken fryer pan. Not a lot but I can make some nice foods and not go out to eat as often as other Travel Nurses have to. My Sis is amazed as how many types of meals you can cook and wants to bake a bread in the slow cooker which I think will be quite interesting.
    Just wanted to say we will be home at the beginning of December so we will enjoy a variety of meals when back where my oven is but still use the slowcooker at intervals. I use liners a lot of the time for easy clean up for some foods but not always as it isn’t too bad to clean soaked in hot water and some good dishwashing soap like Dawn 2x.
    Thank you for posting your very nice recipes. We’re from S. FL. and ys we know good southern food quite well. I’m in California saving lives out here and enjoying no rain and stormy weather like at home. We decided to drive back from Cali to FL when I’m finished with my next contract so figuring around 5 days and home but enjoying some good eating along the way so this will be a foodie trip back home lol. Hoping the I-10has some good places along the way to eat at lol!!!

  3. Peanuts, peanuts, come get your boiled peanuts. Going in the crock pot in the morning as part of our Labor Day fun and feasting. Small, medium, large….. have 3 sizes of slow cookers. Wouldn’t take a plugged nickel for one of them, I love them so much. BTW, what is a plugged nickel????

  4. In that case, you might decide to have one for home, and one to take along, and there are a number of them that
    are conveniently attached to key chains for just such a reason.
    They are simply a rod with a handle on the end and usually made of diamonds or
    ceramic. The family business was incorporated in
    1900 as Case Brothers Cutlery Company, and the brand has been an industry standard since that time.
