The Crock-Pot: A Family and Nanny Crowd-pleaser

FAN2024679Let’s face it, we’re all quite busy people. With summer over and fall well underway, our time is becoming increasingly limited. School, soccer practice, art class, tutoring, dance … a million and one things that all seem to take precedence over cooking a good, healthy meal.

Family dinner at the end of the day is arguably one of the most important family bonding times of the day, and passing up such a precious opportunity due to a lack of time would be such a shame. So, nannies, mothers, fathers, family assistants and housekeepers, rest assured that we’ve got the absolute perfect solution for you… the Crockpot!

In the morning, or even the evening before, throw a few ingredients in, turn on its slow-cook feature, and you’re free until dinner-time! Easy and delicious, they’re sure to be a real crowd-pleaser.  Here are a few of our favorite “can’t miss” recipes:
