Best Slow Cooker for Easy Dinners
Why, you ask? Because I love slow cooker meals and recipes that make the cooking for the family aspect of my life a little more stress-free. I mean, lets face it: when the dishes are piling up because the repair people still don't have the dishwasher part in, errands have to be run because they don't take care of themselves, and somehow deadlines keep creeping up--well, that's when I want to just throw it in the slow cooker and leave it.
I mean, lets get real peeps. We all have busy lives and somehow we manage to squeeze everything into our day the best we can. Yes, this means we divide and conquer. Sometimes (okay, a lot of the time) it means we let something slip to the wayside that can be done another day. But, we still have to feed our families.
Easy Dinner Recipes Two and Leftovers for Tomorrow
With kid-friendly recipes and a product that acknowledges dietary considerations, I know that Crystal Farms cheese can be trusted for easy morning & weeknight recipes the whole family will enjoy. Hassle-free. No stress. Cooking for the busy family in mind. That is all.
That's why I love this recipe when I'm thinking of easy dinner recipes for two--because the husband travels after all--and sometimes (make that all the time) I like to be able to have leftovers for an easy lunch the next day.
I've been using Crystal Farms cheese for about forever now. I love that it is a product that is very local to me. Lake Mills, Wisconsin, the home to Crystal Farms for the last 25 years, is right down the road from where I live. Well...within a 40 minute drive anyway. Which makes it super close.
Any time I can find a product that delivers a consistent quality and great taste--I'm going to be buying that product again.
Get a load of these points Crystal Farms cheese can be proud of:
- Natural product with few preservatives
- Rich source of calcium
- Located in the refrigerated dairy section
- All products are gluten-free
- Lactose tolerant
