45 Crockpot Meals for Hot Summer Nights

45 Real Food Slow Cooker Recipes | ADelightfulHome.com

No one wants to turn on the oven in the heat of summer! The extra temperature in the house can make you completely miserable.

Not to mention that many of us are spending a lot more time outside, enjoying our family, or working on special projects, leaving little room (or desire) to slave over a meal in the kitchen.

This is where the slow cooker comes in handy. Toss a few ingredients together in the morning, and enjoy a scrumptious meal at night. What could be more perfect?

One issue I have with many slow cooker recipes is that they contain undesirable ingredients, like cream of chicken soup (from a can). To save some time, I’ve collected 45 real food slow cooker recipes and am sharing them at Keeper of the Home today. 

All the recipe contain real food ingredients! Find them here: 45 Slow Cooker Recipes for Summer

And now I have a question for you: 

Do you say slow cooker or crock pot?

I flip flop between the two, but seem to say crock pot more often.

Not that it’s important! Although I would love to know.

  1. Thank you for this very useful post. I live overseas, in a very warm climate. Such recipes are always welcome! A few years ago, I didn’t know what a crockpot was. In the UK we always called them slow cookers. Crockpot is an American term for the same thing, I believe there’s a brand called Crock-pot which retails in the USA.
    Slow Cooker? Crockpot? I don’t mind as long as I can leave it to cook dinner!

    I just double checked on Wikipedia. Here’s the link : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slow_cooker

  2. I say crock pot, as that’s how it all started back (‘way back) when I was a bride and there was only one. Later, I think slow cooker was used to avoid law suits against other pot manufacturers. It’s my rut, and I’m comfortable in it. 😉
