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.

Worth The Wait: 10 Virgins Reveal Why They Are Waiting Until It's...Right

As much as I talk about sex, this is a topic that I was excited to shed a spotlight on. Why? It’s simple, really. Despite how sexed — and sometimes it really does seem oversexed — that our culture and society may be, virgins are not extinct. Believe it or not, it’s been reported that around 27 percent of guys are still virgins when they first step foot on a college campus (as a freshman) and, globally, approximately 38 percent of people between the ages of 18-24 are still virgins too. And even though it’s not a ton of ‘em, there are still some virgins who are over 40 (I personally know three, although they declined to be interviewed for this article).
