Cooking It Crockpot Style! - Part 2

In a previous post I talked about using your crockpot to simplify your winter menu and provide a warm and hearty meal for your household.  As Spring approaches, let's look at a new crockpot recipe lineup for your convenience as life gets hectic with things like prepping the garden, cleaning out the gutters and Spring cleaning like there is no tomorrow!  Visit Annie's Recipes for tons of Spring menu ideas.
Crockpot Italian Meat Balls
Granted, the Italian meat balls do require a bit more prep work than tossing in some ingredients, setting the crockpot to low and rolling out the door.  However, I would argue that you can use this recipe to wow and amaze your family with your Italian cooking prowess.  (They don't have to know the meat balls cooked themselves while the house was mostly empty.)

Crockpot Chili
Chili you say?  For Spring?  Yes, yes of course.  Chili on a chilly March evening, when the rain (and in my case the snow) may still be coming down is a great meal to warm up with.  And, if you are like a friend of mine, every first weekend in March you pack a pot of chili on your annual "Chili" Ride, (which entails riding four-wheelers and ATVs in the desert and eating chili in between trails).

Crockpot Onion Swiss Steak
One more crockpot recipe for the gold!  (Pun intended.)  Though I don't think Swiss steak is a traditional Irish meal to enjoy for St. Patrick's Day, it comes close.  I suppose you could adapt the recipe to include beef and cabbage to be more authentic.  Add a little Guinness and you've got yourself an Irish crockpot sensation!

Enjoy!  We love feedback and photos, so if you try one of these recipes please send us a photo and we'll feature it!
