I love summer slow cooker recipes that are simple versions of our family favorites. Pasta dishes, barbecue chicken, and of course the classic slow cooker pot roast are all regulars on my menu plan. In the summer, I keep my slow cooker out all the time since I use it so often!
I use my 6 quart slow cooker more than any other, but you may want to invest in a smaller 3 quart slow cooker for side dishes, and a larger 8 quart slow cooker if planning to feed a larger family.
