There is no better feeling than coming home to a delicious, prepared meal after a long day at work! On a busy weekday, a slow cooker is your best friend and this recipe is a winner in our house! Minimal work, healthy ingredients and a comforting meal!

I don’t know how I went without a slow cooker for so many years! It wasn’t until I borrowed my mom’s slow cooker one day that I got my first taste of what it could do. I kept that slow cooker for 2 more weeks and tried out some other delicious recipes too. After gushing about how helpful it was having dinner ready when I got home, my mom gifted it to me and it has been a superstar in our kitchen ever since!

What is not to love about having dinner ready when you get home? There is seriously nothing better!

It’s been fun experimenting with recipes and trying to modify my stovetop meals into slow cooked versions. Many of the recipes for slow cooked meals are loaded with canned ingredients and that is something we avoid in our home. This recipe is free of any canned, processed ingredients! A healthy, delicious meal is truly easy to achieve in your crockpot and I am eager for you to try it!
