I was recently contacted by Brittnay Bailey at The Nut Butter Hub to do a guest post on My Sweet Mission of a collection of 8 Unusual Recipes to Make in a Slow Cooker. We loved the topic and thought you would enjoy this collection of interesting and delicious recipes that can be easily made in a slow cooker too!
The slow cooker, an ingenious piece of bench dwelling equipment. Those who use it love it and will tell you all about it. Those who don’t, will have seen the endless lists of recipes to cook in it. The true fans know that they are the pinnacle of intelligence and laziness. You’re smart enough to know what bloody delicious food you can produce with little to zero effort.

It doesn’t involve intense eyeballing of the saucepan ensuring you don’t end up with something resembling road tar for the 3rd time.
