Favourite Slow-Cooker Recipes

As fall drew to an end, I decided to do a post on my favourite slow-cooker recipes, to get everyone into the mood for some comforting winter food.  And here we are, almost the end of January... better late than never, right?

Cooking for me this winter has really only meant using my slow cooker, for the most part.  Time is a precious entity these days and I love how you can whip together a healthy and delicious meal in under 30 minutes when using your slow cooker.  I also love coming home to a delicious smelling house.  And, not having to race to get everything ready last minute, as the kids scream from hunger!

These recipes are my favourite slow-cooker recipes, in no particular order.  I also have a slow-cooker tag on the left side of my blog, if you want to check out others.

I apologize for the quality of some of these photos.  This was way before I knew anything the manual settings of my camera or even knew what the word white balance meant ;)  I promise you, however, that these recipes are delicious, even if the photos of some of them are not the most appetizing.
