Easy Slow Cooker Meals
When it comes to saving time in the kitchen, especially when my kids were in school, this handy appliance was my best cooking friend. I could load up my slow cooker or crockpot with a protein, vegetable, or pasta and let it simmer all day.
Many Christmas Day meals consisted of our Crockpot Mac and Cheese dish. This is so easy to make and it only takes 3 hours. Sprinkle a little Tobasco sauce on top and it is divine!
After opening gifts under the Christmas tree, we could relax playing games, reading books or listening to music while this simmered away. Perfect meal.
Save More Time in Kitchen
This handy appliance helps you save cooking time, but there are ingredients and products you can use with these recipes to also help you save time!
Bone Broth is an ingredient that takes a long time to cook to reap the benefits – think of how healing grandma's chicken soup was. Brodo is a small business located in NYC and they have cooked and flash frozen this healthy broth for you!
Easily order your favorite broth flavor online and they will ship right to your door.
I've used the chicken flavor many times and it is delicious in soups, chili and I even use it in my chicken pot pie recipe.
Other Time Savers:
- Crockpot Disposable Liners– these make cleanup a breeze. Line your crockpot, cook and then toss the bag when done. You can find these on Amazon or in your local supermarket.
- Grab and go? Yep! Cook and bring your lunch or dinner with you in a crockpot travel bag! I just learned about these! I really like the design of this travel bag I found on Amazon- I'll be ordering one of these bags for myself!
- Have the right tools like a good peeler, sharp knife, can opener, and cutting board to name just a few. Just a few simple steps for prep work will save you some extra time.
