Easy Crockpot Meals
I was an overwhelmed mom of a 2-year-old and newborn. I will never forget the day that my first child was diagnosed with food allergies. It rocked our world. I was an overwhelmed mom of a 2-year-old and newborn. I was barely keeping up with the demands of life and eating out too much was part of my coping strategy.

Tips For Cooking Easy Crockpot Meals
- Follow recipe instructions. I do not suggest doubling or halving recipes until you have tried the recipe at least once.
- Do not lift the lid during cooking. Each time you lift the lid during cooking you are letting out heat. Unless the recipe specifically tells you to open and stir just leave the lid on. Opening the lid effects the cooking time of recipes.
- Know your crockpot. Different crockpots can vary slightly. Your crockpot might heat up more or less than mine, so if you have problems with over/under cooked crockpot recipes it could be that you need to slightly adjust cooking times.
- Use crockpot liners when you can. Crockpot liners make clean up so fast! No more soaking and scrubbing your crockpot.
