75 Days of Summer Slow Cooker Meals EatAtHomeCooks


I am ridiculously excited about this series!  I love using my slow cooker and I know you do too. (Links to all the recipes are being added to the bottom of this post.)

Get ready for 75 slow cooker recipes that are perfect for summer.  There’s not a soup or stew among them.  Keep your kitchen cool and have dinner ready when you get in from the pool.

It won’t be all main dishes though.  Look for sides and desserts too.  We want to get everything we can out of the crockpot this summer.

The series starts on June 1 and will run for 75 days.  I’ll share a recipe each day.  Some will be from Eat at Home.  Some will be from around the web.  I’ll be throwing in a few brand new ones that I create, as well.

I’ll also be posting other types of recipes, cooking tips and the sneak peeks at the Weekly Meal Plans each week.  That means that some days we’ll have more than one post for you.  Don’t worry if you’re an email subscriber though, you’ll still get just one email daily or weekly, depending on which you opted for when you signed up.  All the posts for the day/week will be in that email. (You are on the email list, aren’t you?  You won’t want to miss these summer slow cooker recipes!)

  1. Awesome! I’m looking forward to this series! I use my slow cooker a lot during the summer!

  2. This sounds great! I visit your blog every morning.

    • This will also help me in planning what to make on vacation. We are renting a beach house. Coming back to a slow cooker dinner after being on the beach all day will be perfect.

      • Tracy, we love renting a beach house. It’s such a nice, relaxing vacation. And great way to save money of food too. I love that you’re planning slow cooker meals. Smart!

        • We are looking forward to it. It is our first time renting a beach house and our first family vacation. We have a 5 year old little girl and twin 21 month old boys. It will be an adventure!

  3. oh nice! Can’t wait. I’m actually in the market for a new slow cooker and need some ideas for meals!

    I am wanting to order the menu planning, but everytime I click on the link and it takes me to paypal I can not log in, it gives me an error. If I go directly to paypal I don’t have a problem. How can I get the menu plans??? I LOVE your site! I also have 4 kids, and most posts I see are only for families of 4.

  5. SO looking forward to this …. it gets SO hot in Texas!

  6. Hi Tiffany, will the recipes work fir thermal pot cooker?

  7. BritishAmerican says:

    This is perfect. I love your blog and I love the slow cooker. My husband said I need to switch to the summertime menu! This will help a lot.

    That sound you hear is my children cheering because I’ve found slow cooker recipes that are not soups or stews. (Hey, I like soup and stew!) Please don’t be surprised if they hug you the next time they see you. 🙂

  9. Thanks for including my Asian Orange Chicken recipe! This is a great resource.

    Thank you so much!! Im responsible for paying gas costs (oven, water heater, heat. All of this runs on gas), and my electric is my landlords responsibility so naturally im wanting to save $. I have 2 large crockpots, 2 mini crockpots, and an electric grill/ skillet combo. Im utilizing electric cooking sources at every opportunity this summer and plan to continue this in the future . Ive been asking friends but it was mostly soup and stew recipes they had. This is sooooo much better!!

    Sorry for being anonymous, but you don’t post your own recipes — sorry, you suck.

    • I do post my own recipes, but for the slow cooker summer series, both this year and last year, I have shared recipes from other bloggers. I have permission from every blog featured and I link to those blogs, sending traffic their way. During the series, I’ve also posted my own original recipes. Normally, I wouldn’t publish a comment like yours, but I wanted to be clear that I am not scraping content from other blogs.
