Keep in mind that these recipes can be easily doubled if you have a crowd to cook for. Also, just because it says a specified amount of time doesn't mean you can't set your slow cooker at a higher or lower temperature to adjust the speed. Most importantly, remember that your slow cooker is there to give you a bit of help when the days get shorter and the weather gets nippier this fall.
