There has to be a lot to these recipes, they are so exotic. Maybe you did not see the last part of the title…slow cooker recipes…That’s right all you have to do is a little prep work then put your ingredients into the slow cooker and wait. It is so nice to be able to come home after a long day at work and have not just dinner, but a really great dinner waiting for you.
