As much as I don’t want to admit it, summer is quickly coming to an end. Although many kiddos have already gone back to school, we still have one last hurrah…Labor Day weekend! Whether you’re hosting a picnic or have been invited to a pot luck, here are my favorite crockpot recipes for a large crowd.
My cousin Jill wrote this recipe for our Oven Freezer Meals eCookbook and the sauce was so delicious that I wanted to drink it with a spoon.

It’s delicious, healthy, and so easy to make!
