I’ve been posting crock pot recipes on Friday for a looooooong time. It was one of the very first features I started – it’s something I really enjoy too. I really, REALLY love my crock, so I enjoy sharing my crock love with ya. 😉 I enjoy sharing most things with ya…except my brownies. I don’t enjoy sharing those. The recipe yes – the actual brownie – NO. Back off.

Then, because you asked me for one, I put out my first crock pot cookbook, Crock On, which includes NO cream-of soup mixes. It was a big hit and I’m very happy for the support I received from y’all. THEN you asked me for an actual print book for Crock On, and we happily supplied that too. Are you catching on? Just don’t ask us for our SSNs, okay?

Even through Crock On, I still continued to supply Friday crock pot recipes and I’m still doing that. Do you know how many crock pot recipes that is?! Yeah, me either. Math isn’t my favorite. Brownies are my favorite, but I don’t count those either. I just eat them.



Because there are so many crock pot recipes, they are bound to get lost in all the other posts I do…because I’m talkative and all. I was always told from a family member I have diarrhea of the mouth. But anyway, this post isn’t about bathroom business, it’s about crock pots.

I thought it would be fun for me to put up a list of my favorite Crock Pot recipes from the past just in case you missed them. And if you think my idea of fun sounds a wee bit boring, don’t tell me. I like living in my small world.

If you’re a Trim Healthy Mama like me, you’ll be happy to note even though I haven’t re-worded the posts, I’ve put the THM notes in each printable recipe at the bottom…because I’m a nerd and like doing things like that. I’m a nerd who gets excited about her crock pot. Hmmmmm, maybe that’s why Barry and I don’t have many friends. 😉 It’s not B.O!!!! *Sigh of relief*

So, see below 20 of my favorite crock pot creations, with links…no cream-of soups at ALL! :-) Love y’all!

  1. I love my crock too!! Thank you so much for the recipes. They all look easy and GOOD.

  2. I just want to tell you how happy I am to have found your blog. When I get the email notice that you have posted a new blog, it totally makes my day! I absolutely love your sense of humor and realness. You’re silly (my kind of girl!) and I wish we lived closer because I would probably stalk you – well not stalk you, but hope to run into you one day because I think we’d be friends! :) God bless you, Stacy, you make my day every time I read your blog!

  3. Easy is my favorite!

  4. I love your crock pot recipes! I’m especially loving them right now. When our son was first born, I tried a lot of crock pot cooking, and my husband and I were less than impressed. I’m getting ready to have another baby in October, and I’ve been cooking through “Crock On” to get ready for the new baby crazies. So far, every recipe has been a hit for us! I love being able to prep dinner as I get a minute here or there throughout the morning!

  5. :-) I’m so glad they’re helpful!

    That cheeseburger recipe looks so good, stopped by from Jam Hands.

  7. How do we make the crockpot oatmeal THM? is that possible?

    • Sure – oatmeal is a great E. I’ve updated all of the recipes. Sorry you missed that note in the post. If you’ll click on the link and scroll to the bottom, the THM notes are at the bottom of the recipe.

  8. Jill's Home Remedies says:

    Pinned this, Stacy. What a great list of recipes!

  9. Lorraine Williamson says:

    thanks for all the great recipes visiting from the mandatory mooch blog hop

  10. Joyce Wheeler says:

    Oh my gosh I love the cheeseburger meatloaf recipe. I have made a taco meatloaf but not cheeseburger. At this moment I have a pork ham roast in the crock pot for making into pot pies tomorrow. Pinning to my healthy eating board, followed you here from the Natural Living Link Up.

    Please consider sharing at a new link up called Real Food Fridays.

    • Crock pots are best during the summer to keep the house cool! But they work all year long here. :-) I’m addicted to mine.

  17. Lisa Suit says:

    Thanks so much for this! My 5 week old son has decided that from 4:00 on in the evenings he must be held, which has put a serious cramp on me making dinner for the rest of our family. Crock Pot to the rescue!

  18. Katie @ Nourishing Simplicity says:
