January is National Slow Cooking Month

January is National Slow Cooking Month and because of that we thought we would share some fun recipes you can use in your slow cooker to cook lunch or dinner while you work.

Have you checked out the craze with Instant Pots? Instant Pot is a multi-cooker that does the job of a slow cooker, electric pressure cooker, rice cooker, steamer, yogurt maker, sauté/browning pan, and warming pot.

We don’t know about you, but we feel the easier the recipe the better. So, here are some quick and easy recipes you can simply set and forget until mealtime:
