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!

Tender Roast And Veggies

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

I have your cookbook and have made a boat load of your receipes. this year for Christmas I plan to give apple butter and plum butter as Christmas gifts to family and friends. Christy, you have made everyones life so much richer and fuller by bringing us so much of yourself and your lovekly family. May God Bless!

  3. Hey, Christy! Great stuff! I’m now out in Iowa, but there are plenty of nursing homes, assisted living centers, etc. out here. Just wondering why you chose the Suave body wash. Is it mild? Our family would love to adopt a home out here. God’s richest blessings on you and all your readers today! Mary

  4. Awesome, awesome, awesome! I love my crockpot, especially as I have four children and homeschool. I have tried almost all of the recipes you listed above, but there are a few I haven’t, so I am super excited to try new ones. My family has loved every single recipe we have tried of yours. What a talent you have!

  5. I just love my slow cooker. It is a time saver for me. I work full time and my husband works long hours away from home so most evenings it just me and the kids. It hate to get home from work and then try to get supper ready. The chessy chicken and rice is so yummy, thanks for the reminder to make this again. The apple butter is on my to try list this year! The bowl of chili makes me want to go and get a spoon and dig in! I love how you can just throw a few things in there and have a wonderful meal that tastes like you spent all day making it! Thanks Christy
