Lamb Casserole.This morning I woke up thinking lamb casserole, I was so full of enthusiasm for life and the day ahead, and thought to myself  - this is gonna be a great day to share one of my favourite recipes with YOU.

Hi to all my fellow home cooking chefs here on the East Coast of Africa and around this beautiful world we live in.I was going through some of my old slow cooking recipes, and came across  what must be one of the best casserole I've ever made. Yip! 

And before we start with this delicious recipe, one quick question: How many working mothers leave for work early morning, then getting home late afternoon after a tiring day and have to cook for the family ?.

 Answer. Thousand upon thousands. Well, we here at Home Cooking Have think we have a solution to this, you guessed right Slow cooker/Crock pot. We think this appliance, was invented by  a woman and is certainly something all families should have. It actually gives you an extra pair of hands.

Okey Dokey time to prepare and cook this once tasted never forgotten casserole.
