Life is crazy, busy and hectic enough without needing to worry about what you are going to make for dinner each night. Taking advantage of your slow cooker allows you to plan ahead and put your meal in the Crock-Pot in the morning and go about the rest of your day and come home to dinner ready to serve later that day. We at CrockPotLadies.com aim to provide easy and quick slow cooker recipes using easily found ingredients that result in finished dishes that you would be proud to serve to your family and friends for any occasion.

Heidi Kennedy is a work at home mother of 5 children (ages 22, 16, 10 and 9 year old twins) and resides in Wyoming with her high-school sweetheart. As a busy mom she is always looking for new ways to save time and money. Crock-pot cooking fits the bill and lets Heidi prepare warm and satisfying meals without slaving over a hot stove. In her spare time Heidi enjoys cooking (of course), reading, learning new things everyday, shopping, saving money, gardening and spending quality time with her family, friends and pets.

- Location: Wyoming

- Crock-Pot she cooks with: Because I have a large family I do most of my cooking in a 6 Quart Rival Crock-Pot model #SCCPVL600S but I also recently picked up a smaller slow cooker so that I can make some of the recipes that do not require such a large crockpot. I snagged a Rival 2.5 quart Crock-Pot model #5025WG.
