The reason I haven't been posting fast recipes for the busy mother is because I no longer NEED them. Because I found the greatest recipe book on earth. (That may be the humorist exaggeration taking over in me, but it's how I feel.) The book is called, Slow Cooker Revolution, by America's Test Kitchen.
I do not exaggerate when I say I cook out of this every day. It is full of slow cooker recipes that do not look and taste like mush at the end of the day. They use real ingredients and the spices they use give it amazing flavor. My kids LOVE everything I have made from this book, as does my husband. No, this is not an infomercial, this is just a mother saying to all of you people like me who struggle to get dinner on when we are so busy parenting and writing; this will solve your problem!
I just put it on in the morning and go. One less thing to worry about....and there are tons of recipes for every taste, which is why I can cook out of it every day. You will also save money and increase your family's healthiness by cooking things from scratch instead of relying on ready-made foods. I hope it helps your family as much as it helped mine!
Happy parenting! You'll have much more time to do it now!
