My five favorite slow cooker recipes

I hear it time and time again: "I don't have time to cook my family a home cooked meal every night." 

I hear what you're saying. You have work/home/church/civic/school responsibilities. You're tired and stretched too thin. 

I stay home with my kids, and I have a small business. So my time is far more flexible than more women I know and I still don't always find time to cook. 

But, I have found that for me there is always time to throw some stuff in my trusty slow cooker and go about my day. 

So here are my five favorite slow cooker recipes.

Pizza Pot Pie

Who doesn't love pizza? I mean love it.

This was crazy simple. I mean crazy simple and will make a great week night meal.

You basically put your favorite pizza toppings in a pan and then cover it with crescent rolls and then bake. You could customize it the way your family loves it. Just vegetables for veggie lovers or lots of ham and bacon for meat lovers.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Cake

It's back to school time. I know because there have been about 1 million Target commercials telling me it's time to buy school supplies. 

My sweet boy will be going to "big boy school" a couple days a week. I will write more on this later, but he started this summer and it has been like night and day with his vocabulary and social skills. 

Back to school reminds me of school lunches. Which reminds me of my favorite childhood lunch- PB&J. This of course led me to bake a cake. 

I present you with the PB&J cake! I came up with it Sunday. (It's just an excuse to eat cake, right??)
