  • Slow cookers can be total life-savers for busy people, but you could definitely be using

  • your slow cooker for more things than you are right now.

  • There are tons of things that work really well in a slow cooker, that you may never

  • have considered before.

  • Here are the things you should be using your slow cooker for that'll have you in food heaven.

  • "Mmm"

  • Party mixes

  • Believe it or not, party mixes are actually a great thing to make in your slow cooker.

  • It heats everything at a low enough temperature so that you don't have to worry about burning,

  • but still makes sure that every single piece is coated with whatever delicious saucy seasonings

  • you've added to the mix.

  • Bonus: it frees up your oven, so if you're throwing a party, there's no need to stress

  • about the timing of everything.

  • Baked goods

  • Wait, what?

  • Baked goods kind of have to be, well, baked, right?

  • Actually, there are plenty of baked goods that work super-well in the slow cooker.

  • Things like puddings, crumbles, bread pudding, and the like all can be made in your slow

  • cooker, along with some less obvious things like cakes and brownies.

  • And if you really like that crusty outside on your baked goods, cooking them for a bit

  • without the lid ensures that you're not left with a soggy mess at the end.

  • Get ready to tote out your slow cooker every time you bake brownies.

  • Oatmeal

  • If you're not already cooking oatmeal in your slow cooker, you will be soon.

  • It's as easy as adding all the ingredients and turning it on.

  • You can do a bare-bones, simple recipe with just oats and water, or you can gloss it up

  • a bit with fruit and spices like cinnamon and ginger.

  • Even better, you can cook oatmeal overnight, meaning there will be a warm, comforting,

  • delicious breakfast ready and waiting for you when you wake up in the morning.

  • Stock

  • Stock is the perfect food to try making in the slow cooker rather than on the stove.

  • To get a good, rich stock, you really need to let it go for quite a while.

  • That's where the slow cooker comes in.

  • You can add all your ingredients, then simmer it overnight to make sure that it's rich and

  • flavorful.

  • "Great soup Mrs. Q. Mmmmm."

  • Dessert sauces

  • Like stock, dessert sauces are pretty much the perfect things to make in your slow cooker.

  • These sauces are made for low temperature and gradual cooking.

  • They're susceptible to burning or scalding if made on the stove, when you don't have

  • as much control over the temperature.

  • In particular, slow cooker dulce de leche is as easy as it gets.

  • All it requires is an unopened can of sweetened condensed milk and enough water to cover it.

  • Cook that for eight hours and it's ready.

  • After you make the most delicious dessert sauces ever, drizzle them over desserts or

  • pour a shot into your coffee.

  • "It's like Christmas in a cup."

  • Bread

  • While any bread you make in a slow cooker likely won't be as impressive as the loaves

  • that come out of your oven, this is still a great option if you want to bake bread while

  • you're out of the house all day.

  • The slow cooker operates more like a bread machine, so if you like bread machine-made

  • bread, you'll be leaping for the loaves that come out of your slow cooker.

  • "Oh my god this is so good I haven't had bread since I was like 9."

  • "Are you serious?"

  • "How do you think I got these abs?"

  • Cheesecake

  • Sure, making a cheesecake in a slow cooker will take longer than you're used to, but

  • it's also easier and hassle free.

  • The texture of cheesecakes made in a slow cooker is also much smoother and silkier than

  • a traditional cheesecake because it's steamed.

  • Once it's done, all you'll need to add is fresh fruit, a sauce, or another garnish or

  • make it even easier on yourself and eat it as-is.

  • Now that's finger-licking good.

  • Candy

  • Candy is super-simple to make in a slow cooker, though it may not seem like it would be.

  • Mix nuts or seeds and whatever kinds of chocolate you'd like to in the slow cooker.

  • Let it all blend and stir in any additional mix-ins.

  • The options for mix-ins are endless, from pretzels to Oreos.

  • Let your candy mixture set on a baking tray or in muffin liners and bam!

  • You've made candy.

  • "Bam"

  • Enchiladas or lasagna

  • Enchiladas and lasagna can both be difficult recipes to get on the table, especially on

  • a busy weeknight.

  • "You don't like my lasagna?

  • No it's good!

  • Hmm hmm"

  • Making them in a slow cooker, however, makes these challenging dishes a snap to prepare

  • any night of the week.

  • Lasagna is great to make in the slow cooker because you don't even have to pre-boil the

  • noodles.

  • All you have to do is layer everything in your slow cooker, set it and forget it.

  • "I love it, the richness is divine"

  • Enchiladas also get simplified when made in the slow cooker.

  • Yes, you'll have to mix together the components of your filling and fill and roll the tortillas,

  • but all of the other ingredients are simply added to the slow cooker.

  • Then, like the lasagna, you just have to turn it on and let it go.

  • Mashed potatoes

  • Most people still make mashed potatoes the traditional way, on the stove.

  • If a slow cooker comes into the mix, it's usually just to keep the mashed potatoes warm

  • until they're ready to serve.

  • "This is for Thanksgiving this dish is my moms.."

  • "This smell good what is this again?"

  • "Mashed potatoes!"

  • If you don't want to have to use both a pot and a slow cooker, however, you can just do

  • the whole process in the slow cooker.

  • Add potatoes, water, and butter to the bowl of your slow cooker and cook them.

  • No draining here, just season and mash and they're done.

  • Rice

  • Turn your slow cooker into a rice cooker by making rice pilaf in your slow cooker instead

  • of on your stovetop.

  • If it's a pilaf rather than just straight rice, you'll have to do some minimal sautéing

  • on your stove before spooning it all into the slow cooker.

  • Then add the rest of your ingredients, and let it cook for a couple of hours until it's

  • all done.

  • Fluff it with a fork, garnish with some green onions, and serve.
