We love crock pots around here. I have several and they get tons of use.

If you are in the market for something new, I really love my Ninja cooker. The nice thing about this is you can brown the meat in the same slow cooker for recipes that call for that.

It is so handy to just have the one pan to clean. It has become of my favorite kitchen appliances.

I also really like this crockpot as well.  I use this all the time and it’s great.

My favorite feature is that you can lock the lid down. This is awesome for when you need to take the crockpot somewhere.

Another favorite is this programmable crock pot  for when I am am not at home all day. I love coming home to a nice meal ready and waiting!

I also like to use crock pot liners to make clean up a breeze. These are worth every penny and save a ton of time.

Try slow cooker lemon chicken for a great meal. 

This is such a delicious meal and so easy. Garnish with lemon slices and you are set. It is so pretty and a great meal to serve for company but simple enough for busy weeknights.

You can easily substitute other types of pasta.  Linguine, bow tie, penne and more taste great and you can easily use whatever you have on hand.

Try using chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts. They are just as delicious. You can even use a mix of both.

Just use what you have. This recipe is so versatile.

I am all about using what is on sale at the grocery store or that I already have in the freezer. I cut our grocery bill by 50% off by following these 8 Tips for for Saving Money on Groceries by Menu Planning! Save that money for something else or to give you family wiggle room in the budget.

Easy recipes like this keep my family happy and my grocery budget in good shape. This is how I keep our grocery budget reasonable.

Plus, being able to throw this together quickly and easily really helps to avoid the temptation of getting take out.  Everyone is much happier with a delicious home cooked meal anyway.

Take out these days is not that fast and costs a small fortune. It is even more if you have 8 kids like I do.
