I feel like we’re all needing some new recipes right now. I know so many are cooking at home more than ever, I just wish it were for better reasons than our current reality! Luckily though, if you’re tired of cooking (and cleaning!), you’ll appreciate how simple and easy this new Slow Cooker Sausage & Potato Soup with Broccoli recipe is.

Plus, it makes a lot, so those with smaller families will have leftovers that you can save either in the fridge or freezer for a rainy day (for when you really don’t feel like cooking or run out of food!). It looks like we’re in this for the long haul until things are back to normal. :(

I’d love to hear what you’ve been cooking at home in the comments. We can all use new ideas!
