Mama Kat Thursday: Fav Slow-Cooker Recipes!


Today's Mama Kat blog writing prompt is: 



Drumroll please... and my top 3 favorite and/or most used slow cooker recipes are:

#1)  Slow-Cooker Baked Sweet Potatoes!
 I absolutely love how quick & easy a slow-cooker bakes up 4 to 6 sweet potatoes!
(This blog page also includes a review of Jurassic World!)




Cube steaks are an economic beef option and this slow-cooker recipe cooks 'em up nice and tender with lots of mushroom gravy for rice! Or throw in a few red potatoes in the cooker with the meat and get a full meal in a pot!  Since Hubby is a meat & potatoes guy, this is one of his favorite meals!



This slow-cooker cake is on my list to do again--I just haven't had an good opportunity. Even in a large slow-cooker it only serves 6 people well and I usually have too many Air Force kids on Sunday.
The cake bakes up very nicely & is moist. You have to put a paper towel under the slow-cooker lid during the later portion of baking time, so condescension drops won't fall on the cake.
It would be yummy served with ice cream & Hershey's chocolate syrup!


I love baking desserts in a slow-cooker!

What's your favorite slow-cooker recipe?

Ok, I'm trying that chocolate cake! I've made brown sugar oatmeal in the slow cooker and it turned out so yummy.

Definitely trying the cake! So yummy-looking! And I've been doing regular baked potatoes in the slow cooker. Love the way they come out. Coming at you from Mama's Losin' It!

Seriously, cake?! I was still mulling over the 'how cool to do sweet potatoes' thing! Then cake!
