Top Twenty Tempting Slow Cooker Dinner Recipes of 2012

Twenty Slow Cooker Dinners to try in the new year!

Top Twenty Tempting Slow Cooker Dinner Recipes of 2012

This time of year Best Recipe posts start to show up on many food blogs.  I wanted to spotlight some slow cooker recipes that made me drool through the year, and since every recipe featured on Slow Cooker from Scratch is one that has caught my eye, it was hard to narrow down the list to just twenty!

Most people love their slow cookers for dinners that are ready to eat when you get home, so I decided to focus on Slow Cooker Ideas for Dinner.  And obviously there were a lot more delicious slow cooker dinner recipes featured on the site that I wasn't able to mention here, so if I missed one of your favorites, please share those links in the comments!

Here's hoping some of these will make it on to your dinner menu in 2013!  (All photos below are by the blogger who submitted the recipe, and the links will take you to the complete recipe on the original blog.)
