Guys, I am really excited to start a new series on the blog.  One thing I’ve come to realize over the past year is that you guys LOVE slow cooker recipes.  And that’s just awesome, because I love my slow cooker, too!

One problem I’ve always had with my slow cooker is that often times it cooks really large batches of food.  Big batch shredded chicken, or beef, or large amounts of sweet potatoes.  As a family of three, we always end up with lots of left-overs.

Rather than eat the same dish over and over again, I thought it would be great to come up with multiple ways to use these left-overs!

Even if you have a big family and don’t end up with left-overs, I hope these recipes can help you diversify your dinner routines.  Having slow cooked portions (be it chicken, beef, or sweet potatoes) on hand makes dinner SO much quicker to whip up.

So let’s get started!  Today I am sharing a (ridiculously easy) recipe for crock pot sweet potatoes.  If you can even call it a recipe.  Because all it is is sweet potatoes + slow cooker.  And after 8 hours on low, you are going to have the most tender, creamy sweet potatoes ever!

Wrap ’em in some aluminum foil (I like this because then you can just pop them into a tupperware in the fridge and they seem to keep pretty well this way).  Place in the slow cooker.  You can probably fit 3-5, depending on the size of the potatoes, into a 4-quart slow cooker.

Cook on low for 8 hours.
