Now the cold, dark nights have set in the last thing I want to do when I get home from work is COOK.
This is how my love affair with the humble Slow Cooker came about.
We were gifted one seven years ago, just a cheapie from Argos, no bells and whistles just simply a Low and High button and seven years on it is my saving grace all year but especially come winter.
We are lucky enough now to have two Slow Cookers, our original and a super sized one that can be used on the hob too.
Joints of meat are how I started and I cook mine no other way now, but the Slow Cooker can be used for so much more, so I have searched through many awesome blogs to bring you a Top 20 of Slow Cooker Recipes to go try out.
Just simply click the link below each picture to be taken to the original post for full guidance on how to achieve that delicious picture.
Do let me know if you try any out, I would love to hear how you got on and equally if you have a great recipe you would like me to feature comment below or drop me an email.
