When all goes well, dinner is a family tradition that most moms wouldn’t give up for anything. But when you’re rushed to the max and have kids who need more attention than the duck confit you’re slaving over (we kid), you do what you can to get something that resembles dinner on the table at a fairly decent hour. Two Texas moms realized that the hustle and bustle of everyday motherhood can get in the way of good homecooked meals, so they started a website championing the use of the crock pot. With their new cookbook, The Crockin’ Girls Slow Cookin’ Companion, the Crockin’ Girls collected their best recipes for slow and easy meals, and even added some new ones for moms on the go. With everything from appetizers to desserts, the Crockin’ Girls will turn you into a slow-cooking believer.
