slow cooker recipes

Whether you're a mom, a college student or a young professional, it can seem impossible to find time to prepare a decent meal for yourself or your family. At the end of a long day, the last thing any of us wants to do is slave over a hot stove!

That's why slow cooker or crockpot meals are the way to go.

Instead of having to cook in the evening after a tiring day at the office, for example, you can find a time that works for you, like a surprisingly free night or a morning before your crazy day begins. Prepare your meal when you're not in a rush, not tired and also, not starving! Let it simmer overnight or all day while you're out and about, and POOF! When you get home, there's a hot, delicious dinner waiting for you. Is there anything better?!
