With Everything So Fast Paced, Cook Slow

We live in a society that is constantly on the move, and always fast paced.  We pay more and more each month to ensure that we have the fastest internet connection, the latest technical advances in our smart phones, and, of course, the fastest cars.  With all of that constant on the go, why not cook slow?

Slow cooking in a crock pot is amazing.  You can throw the ingredients in before you head out to work and you will come back to a kitchen that smells amazing.  It’s like having a private chef that ensures that your dinner is ready when you get home – but, you know, without having to pay for a private chef.  Another added bonus, it is really hard to screw up cooking in a crock pot.  Not to mention, you can cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner – as well as appetizers, main dishes and desserts!

For breakfast, or dessert actually, I would HIGHLY recommend Nutella French Toast Casserole with Caramelized Bananas.  I know what you are thinking – and yes, this is a real thing, you’re welcome.  You can prep it in about 10 minutes, and we eating in as little as two hours

It’s just like getting takeout from the local Chinese restaurant, except rather than waiting on the delivery guy, your dinner is waiting on you. This recipe for honey garlic chicken is one you should definitely try.

Bottom line: If you don’t have a crock pot, get one.  And if you do, dust it off and get cooking!
