The Top Ten Recipe Collections from Two Years of Slow Cooker from Scratch!

The Top Ten Most Popular Recipe Collections from Two Years of Slow Cooker from Scratch!

The Top Ten Most Popular Recipe Collections from Two Years of Slow Cooker from Scratch!

Two years ago today I officially launched Slow Cooker from Scratch, starting the adventure of finding and featuring from-scratch slow cooker recipes from talented food bloggers all around the web.   When I was thinking about an appropriate post to celebrate the two year birthday, I thought about sharing the top ten recipes from the last year.  Then I checked my stats and I was surprised to see that many of the most popular posts this year have been round-ups.  (I was delighted to see that, because one reason I started doing more round-up posts was to have a chance to feature more blogs.)

So to celebrate two years of slow cooker goodness I decided to share The Top Ten Recipe Collections from Two Years of Slow Cooker from Scratch!  I hope you find at least a couple of new recipes to try.

No one was more surprised than me when this collection of 15 Recipes for Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos became one of the most popular posts on Slow Cooker from Scratch and it's stayed close to the top of the list of favorite posts ever since.  I guess people love chicken tacos.

During the second year I did a whole series of Slow Cooker Summer Dinners, and this collection of 20 Favorite Summer Dinners in the Slow Cooker was collection number two.

I was surprised again when this collection of Slow Cooker Pasta Sauce Recipes from Food Bloggers showed up in the number three spot.

In the number four spot was this giant collection of 50 Recipes for a Slow Cooker Thanksgiving.

Last year's birthday post featuring Ten Often Purchased Food Items to Make from Scratch in the Slow Cooker came in at number five.

And to round out the top ten, this collection of 15 Recipes for Slow Cooker Pork Tacos from Food Bloggers.

Of course, there were a lot more recipe collections posted over the last two years!   You can see them all under the tab for Recipe Collections.  And if you've made it this far in the post, thanks for joining the celebration.  I hope my posts are helping you enjoy using your slow cooker!


  1. Congratulations on two great years! I've learned so much from this blog and it's really opened up a world of slow cooker possibilities for a new slow cooker user like me.

  2. Thanks Lydia; it's been fun for me too!

  3. That two years went fast! What a great way to celebrate, Kalyn. Congrats and thanks to you! :-) So many of the recipes you share are naturally gluten free or easily adapted because you focus on real food recipes--love that!


  4. Thanks Shirley, glad you have enjoyed the recipes.
