Your slow cooker is good for many things: Making soups while you sleep, preparing a one pot meal when you're out all day at work, cooking up something delicious when you'd rather be outside than in the kitchen.

But have you ever considered using your slow cooker as a machine to make edibles? It works. Plug in that slow cooker and let your infused foods cook while you spend your time doing something better than monitoring a hot pot. Find some tasty recipe inspiration below.
