Slow Cooker Peach Cobbler


If you’ve come to this post because your whole stove is out of commission, many of these recipes can be made using a combination of a slow cooker and an electric skillet.

Electric skillets are very inexpensive – here is a good option on Amazon.

I like to spend a little more on my slow cooker and get a digital one that switches to “warm” at the end of cooking time. Here’s a similar model to the one I have.

I don’t like to cook chicken in my slow cooker because I think it really alters the texture of the meat. The slow cooker works well for beef or pork roast, as long as I completely cover the meat with liquid (usually chicken or beef broth) while it’s cooking. 

Here’s to staying cool and eating well all summer long!

Pin for later!
