8 Slow Cooker Recipes That Will Simplify Your Weeknights

I don't know about you, but ever since I've subscribed to the slow cooker lifestyle, I haven't looked back.

The likelihood of cooking every night becomes increasingly obsolete as the daily grind of the work life balance intensifies. Let's be real, after working a long day, meeting the needs of the other humans in your life, and coming back home to you at the end of the day – who really feels up to the hassle of cooking that elaborate meal you bought groceries for the week before? I sure don't.

While grocery delivery services like Hello Fresh and Blue Apron have popularized in recent years, as well as meal-prepping, but I've found a great alternative by cooking long pots in the form of slow cooker meals. These days, slow cookers are used for more than just soups and stews.

Check out 8 of my favorite slow cooker recipes that simplify my weeknight meals down below.

5 Things To Tap Into For 'UnPrisoned' Season 2

This article is sponsored by Hulu.

UnPrisonedhas returned for its highly anticipated second season, delving deeper into the complex dynamics of the Alexander family.

'Love Island USA' Star JaNa Craig On The Reality Of Black Women On Dating Shows

Love Island USA just wrapped up its sixth season, and it has been the talk of the town. According to Nielsen, it's the No. 1 show on streaming, proving it's just as entertaining as the UK version. One of the reasons this season has been successful is due to the authentic relationships formed between the islanders in the villa.

You have the sisterhood between Serena Page, JaNa Craig, and Leah Kateb, aka PPG, and the real relationship moments between couples like Serena Page and Kordell Beckham, who were named the winners of this season. The other finalists include Leah Kateb and Miguel Harichi, Nicole Jacky and Kendall Washington, and JaNa Craig and Kenny Rodriguez.

While JaNa made it to the finale with her boo Kenny, her journey in the villa was far from perfect. Viewers saw the Las Vegas native get her heart stomped on a few times after many of her connections didn't work out.

At one point, it even looked like she was getting kicked off the island. While she had a lot of support from people watching the show, it was clear that she was in a position that many Black women on reality dating shows find themselves in: not being desired.
