18 Hearty Slow Cooker Recipes

A round-up of 18 delicious slow cooker recipes, perfect for crock pot cooking in the fall and winter!

These past few weeks, the weather around here has been crazy in typical Chicago fashion. A week ago, we were swimming in the pool, and today…well it’s definitely hoodie weather.

And even though we had the longest, coldest, snowiest winter in a loooong time, I’m quite ready for the cooler fall weather. It is, after all, my favorite season!

I use my crock pot year round; it’s perfect to use in the summer because we are on the go so much that it’s nice to have dinner ready and waiting when we get home. However, I really like cooking with it in the fall because of all the hearty, delicious meals one can make. Think chili, stew, soups, pork roasts…yum!

These recipes are perfect for a cool, fall evening. Or for the big game on Sunday!
