Do you ever dream of coming home after a long hectic day to a wonderful home cooked meal — you didn’t have to cook? Does this sound too good to be true? Not if you have a slow cooker. Slow cookers can help you prepare meals, save you time and money.
Tips
• Fill the slow cooker one- half to two- thirds full of water.
