Dinner is a breeze - with a slow cooker!

I have never been a good cook. Its one of those things that I wish I could do well, but no matter how much I try I just can't cook. Its either too salty, or not cooked long enough, or not spicy enough and the list goes on.

For the last few months, I have been debating at whether I should buy a slow cooker. Lots of people love them because they are easy to use and the food is really nice when cooked in a slow cooker. I did my research and could only find positive feedback on the slow cookers. So it definitely sounds worth it.

So I went out on the weekend and bought my very first slow cooker.

I have cooked a few dishes in it now and they are perfect. The preparation to get all the ingredients ready takes me about tweny minutes, I then place them all in the slow cooker and its cooks on low for 8 hours.

I absolutely love it. It saves me lots of time, and the food is always perfect. I have tried Beef Stroganoff, Herb and Garlic Lamb Shanks and Chicken with mushrooms. All great meals. My husband and children love the meals too which is fantastic. The slow cooker is definitely a great investment.

Do you like cooking? What do you like to cook?
