Question : How many working mothers leave for work early morning, have a busy day at their place of employment and then have to come home tired and probably too exhausted to have to cook for the family?

Answer: Thousands upon thousands.

How would you like to spend 10-15 minutes in the morning preparing your ingredients for supper, throwing it all into one pot before going off to the grind mill.

And then coming home after 8 hours at work, and opening your door and catching a tantalizing aroma in your house and your family all holding their plates, their mouths drooling, waiting to be served whatever it is that smells so lovely.

Sound too good to be true, well now you can do it with Home Cooking Havens Crock pot recipes.
