I always turn to my tried and true kitchen appliance, slow cooker, when I am feeling a bit lazy or in most cases am lacking time! There is only so much we can fit into one day, right? Slap pork into the slow cooker the night before and its all ready in the morning to prepare a protein packed lunch. On the weekends, I may start in the morning and dinner is done just in time. Let me know your thoughts or what is your go to kitchen appliance.
