Slow Cooker Heaven….

I’m a working mom. When I get home from work in the evenings I want to run around with my daughter, take my dog for a walk, catch up on my Reality TV obsession, basically anything except cook.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate cooking. I hate cooking after a long day at work. I could feed my family toasted sarmies every night but somehow don’t think that would go down very well. I have 2 hard working men in my house as well as a teenage boy and a daughter that will eat anything. And they all need a good meal at the end of the day.

This is where the Slow Cooker comes in. I ‘gifted’ myself one earlier this month and all I can say is WOW. My life just got so much easier! I get up in the morning, put a bunch of ingredients in the cooker, put the lid on and go to work. When I come home I have a cooked meal waiting for me. I mean, really, what more could I possibly say to make you want to run out and get one……

So far I have made:

Chicken Curry

Lamb Stew

Beef Curry


Corned Beef


and Creamy Chicken, Brocolli and Bacon soup.

All were absolutely amazing. Here are a few recipes that I am dying to try out, I found them over at the Recipe Critic. Click on the photos if you would like the recipe.
