I'm a mom with a full time job, a small business, two large dogs and house to maintain... When I say I need easy, fool-proof meals I mean it. Crockpot is preferred method!
TikTok has become my go-to... I want to see how easy it is to make it and what it looks like when it's done... and I don't want to read a novel to find the recipe.
Here are some recipes or meal inspo I've tried that i'd recommend to a friend.
Preface: Yes these are toddler approved, but admittedly my 1.5 year old son is not a picky eater.
1. This crockpot meal is easy, super flavorful and perfect on a cold day.
I've made it twice now and it's a huge W for my family. I made ours a little thicker & less soupy than this video. Just personal prefernce!
@bysophialee can’t take credit for this crockpot dinner but it is one of our favorites 🤤 #crockpotrecipes #dinneridea ♬ On an Evening in Roma - Dean Martin
2. Same creator -- but a crockpot meal WITHOUT cream cheese! Those are hard to find. I've made this several times and it's so effortlessly good. I buy a box or two of the onion soup mix just to keep around for this recipe when I need a quick, throw together meal.
@bysophialee super easy crockpot meal that doesn’t involve cream cheese 🤪 #crockpotmeals #crockpotrecipes #dinnerideas #dinner #fyp #foryoupage #crockpot ♬ On an Evening in Roma - Dean Martin
3. I call this stuffing chicken... but not dry. Cheap way to jazz up some crockpot chicken! My son and husband really liked it, and I meal prepped it for a few days. I'll make this over and over.
@taylortaborn This was one if the best crock pot meals. I forgot to record the end results 😭🤣 🥰Recipe is in the comments #crockpotrecipes #fall #crockpotmeals #fypシ ♬ Talkin' Tennessee - Morgan Wallen
4. A chicken-y twist on spaghetti! This is a heavier meal with lots of dairy... which means it's delicious, but not for those with dairy sensitive tummys. My son LOVED this. Plus, the veggies mixed in means he's more likely to eat them all.
This creator is a good follow - lots of kid friendly stuff.

5. Quick break on crockpot meals - I'm a dessert gal. Here's a lower calorie and low sugar option for you and the littles. I used it as a fruit dip, YUMMM!

6. Steak in the crockpot? Yeah I know. But it's easy, less messy and delicious. Add some potatoes, too. I meal prepped it.
@foxymamabailey Yummy steak bites!!! Seasonings l!nked in my b!o. 😋 #crockpotrecipes #crockpotmeals #crockpotdinner #crockpot #crockpotsoftiktok #foodtiktok #foodie #food #dinnerwithme ♬ That's Amore - Dean Martin
7. Remember the viral feta pasta dish? Yeah I'm still making it over here... so good and easy. It's in the 'staple meal' rotation over here.
@thehungerdiaries Tried the viral #fetapasta by @feelgoodfoodie + it was 🤌🏻 #easyrecipe #bakedfeta #bakedfetapasta #foodtiktok #foodie #foryou #fyp #feta #pasta ♬ original sound - The Hunger Diaries
8. Okay hear me out on this soup -- I know soup isn't really ideal to feed a toddler but my kid loved it. I had never made this before and it's a million times better than store bought. Pair it with some grilled cheese sammies!
