Easy Crockpot Recipes and Menus e-book

One reader, Nancy, recently wrote to ask for a little more detail about what is in the new Easy Crockpot Recipes and Menus e-book. I thought many of our readers would be interested as well, so here’s what I told her.

Nancy, there are so many good recipes in this book that I don’t know where to start. It is a lot like a crockpot version of Dining On A Dime in the sense that it includes recipes that all use “regular” ingredients that most people have on hand. I tried to make is easy, easy, easy and quick, quick, quick, so most of the recipes have as few ingredients as possible. We also designed it so you could easily add or take away ingredients to most of the recipes depending on what you have on hand.

There are over 60 pre-made menus included in Easy Crockpot Recipes and Menus. Each menu includes a recipe for a main dish that can be prepared in the crockpot and a regular recipe for another dish like a salad, vegetable or dessert.

The e-book includes 187 recipes, including many traditional recipes like:

  • vegetable soup
  • stew
  • clam chowder
  • chili
  • corn chowder
  • split pea soup
  • chicken pot pie
  • chicken and noodles
  • garlic roasted chicken
  • barbecued chicken and beef recipes
  • how to cook turkey breast in the crockpot
  • enchiladas
  • pork chops
  • roast recipes
  • Saucy Italian Link Sausages
  • Creamy Potatoes & Polish Sausage


Easy Crockpot Recipes and Menus also includes recipes for easy side dishes like:

  • macaroni and cheese
  • rice dishes
  • sweet potato recipes
  • many regular potato recipes
  • vegetable dishes like carrots, various squashes, veggies


You’ll find easy recipes for unusual things like:

  • Chex mix
  • venison
  • boiled peanuts
  • many hot drinks and dips
  • Vegetable Slaw
  • Hearty Pepper Salad
  • Ranch Spinach Salad


Easy Crockpot Recipes and Menus is full of delectable desserts including:

  • Butterscotch Shortbread Cookies
  • Oreo Poke Cake
  • Easy Apple Dumplings
  • Blueberry Cream Dessert
  • Quick Chocolate Mousse
  • Cinnamon Roll Cake
  • Cinnamon N’ Spice Dip
  • Heavenly Fruit Salad
  • Muffin and bread recipes
  • Hot Baked Fruit
  • Quick and Easy Banana Bread
  • Triple Layer Pretzel Brownies
  • Lemonade Pie
  • Sweet Potato Pecan Muffins

As in our Dining On A Dime cookbook, many of the recipes in Easy Crockpot Recipes and Menus are traditional comfort food recipes but quite a few are new ones too. It really is a nice balance.

As I was proofreading the e-book for the last time, I kept turning the pages thinking, “What a yummy sounding recipe,” and, “Boy, I think so and so would love this,” or “So and so could use this.” I thought, “I wish I could get a copy of this for them” forgetting just whose book I was reading! …duhhhhh – Since I wrote it I think I might be able to get a copy or two. What planet was I on? LOL

This list is just a small sample of the amazing goodness you’ll find in the Easy Crockpot Recipes and Menus menu guide!

    Jill, You are so funny. I was laughing by the time I finished your post today.
    I think I will order the crockpot cookbook for my son. We gave him one for Christmas and so far he has just done chicken and a pot roast. Might be good for him to see some other options. Perhaps this could be a good Christmas gift. I am starting to do some mini-shopping so I will be ahead of the game this year. Last year I was sick and had a tough time shopping so am starting early this year.

      You know what they say Maggie “The mind is the first to go” but with me there are some days where I don’t know if my mind is going or I just don’t know what planet I’m on. I don’t know which is worse. Then of course there are the days where I suffer from both and that is really bad. I do hope my kids don’t read this because they will not let me live this post down. :)

    I had one of those days this week. Couldn’t find my flex spending card. Took it out to pay a bill, thought I left it on my desk since it wasn’t in the place I usually put it in my wallet. Looked everywhere. Cleaned out my purse. Finally found it in my wallet but in a different spot. Then couldn’t find the paper I needed to use to pay the bill. Misplaced a check that I wrote to pay for baseball tickets. When all this happens, I just take a deep breath and try to relax and wait a while. Then I can reasonably look again and find what it is I lost. I get so frantic that I lose all train of thought and then panic thinking I have lost the item forever. Think it could be related to age or that I just have too much going on? I’m hoping it’s the latter. :)

    Jill and Maggie,

    I can so relate to your “mental misfires”, I have them almost every day :) And, Jill, my saying goes: the mind is the second thing to go — I don’t remember the first!
