    It would be helpful to know how many servings these make….. and even more helpful if they told us how many grams per serving.

    • Lkessler41

      Amanda: a typical serving of anything is the size of your fist… You could always use that as a measure…

      I think at a serving as being that size–and I do much better while eating out.

    • Masonsmommy37

      It says in the paragraph before the nutrition stuff how many it serves then you can get a rough estimate from the calories

      • masonsmommy37

        And once u open it not sure if all of them but the ones I thought were tastey, I was looking as well

    • Mike

      When you read the recipe. It says how many servings and serving size.

    • Jamie

      On Pinterest they have the serving size.

    • Ali

      Read the descriptions – they do say how many servings, and give an approximate serving size in most of them. Gram-weight doesn’t make sense because depending on how much water evaporation you have (how long you let it sit in the slow-cooker) the gram-weight can vary a lot from batch to batch.

  • I’m amazed at not only how many different foods can be made in a slow cooker, but how easy it is to get it right (or at least not ruin it.) That’s great for people of my skill level! Thanks for the recipes.

    Thanks for including my slow cooker frittata. Just one correction; that recipe cooks in just a few hours so it’s not suitable for cooking overnight.

  • Pam

    Wonderful to have slow cooker recipes that are low calorie! Thanks

  • jm

    Most of these recipes say 4 hrs of slow cooking. So what if you need to do them overnight or all day for 8-12hrs ? They would also turn out good?

  • Jim

    I do a lot of cooking. And I do a lot of what my friends call imagination cooking. For example I cannot do white potatoes in my diet so I substitute either cauliflower florets or shred it and skip the flour to make it thicker, especially in soup. I make my own broth using chicken, turkey, pork or beef bones it cuts down on sodium intake. And keep in mind that many recipes can be flip flopped from oven to stove to crock pot depending on time constraints. I love to cook. LOL I love to eat. Eating the right things and exercise is key. There are ways to eat enough and lose the weight. In seven months I have dropped 39 pounds. I am not tooting my own horn I am offering that as hope to all out there who needs the hope. Keep up the great work all.
