Disclosure: I received a free copy of the cookbook for review, but all statements in this post are my own opinion.
I am so excited to share this post with you today. A good friend of mine, Sarah, has published an AWESOME cookbook. If you are a busy mom, you simply must get this book. It became my all-time favorite cookbook about 10 minutes after I started looking through it!
The book is called ‘The Magical Slow Cooker: Recipes for Busy Moms”. I am loving it because it has all kinds of recipes in it, from the expected soups, stews, and main dishes, to side dishes and breakfast dishes, and even has a bunch of dessert recipes! Slow Cooker Cheesecake, anyone?? You have to try this to believe it!
I am planning on eventually eating my way through the entire book (focusing on that amazing dessert section!), but for starters, I decided to go with a dinner. As I was flipping through the main dish section, I noticed this one recipe that looked SUPER easy and delicious, and I didn’t need to look any further. I knew this recipe and I were destined to be together!
There are only 3 ingredients (not counting salt and pepper and the optional cilantro) – this recipe just about makes itself! It took me literally 5 minutes to throw everything in the crock pot, and then I forgot about the whole thing until about 20 minutes before I wanted to serve dinner. At that point, I made some quinoa (the recipe calls for rice, but I was out, and the quinoa worked just as well), steamed some asparagus, and bam! Dinner was ready!
Kids loved it, DH loved it, and I loved it. Dinner that night was a major success, and I still had the energy to take pictures of it for you! 😀
Sarah would love for you to stop by her website, The Magical Slow Cooker. And get yourself a copy of her book for an amazing collection of slow cooker recipes your whole family will love!
