Delicious Recipes For a Busy Lifestyle

We’ve all been there: arriving home from work at 6.30pm on a Wednesday evening, with nothing accessible in the fridge for dinner. After working all day, the last thing on our minds is whipping up a gourmet, two course meal – the allure of the takeaway menu is undeniable when there’s nothing homemade to hand!

However, we’ve got a secret weapon up out sleeve: the Crock-Pot. Hailed as the original slow cooker, Crock-Pots were initially used for cooking beans – yet these days, they’re substantially more exciting…
