Here's the scoop: the school year is approaching, your kids are gearing up for long days, and you are gearing up for the school-year cooking routine. What to do to make life easier? My answer is the slow-cooker. I get that baby fired up the minute the school days begin and focus on making the kids' favorites a few days a week. The slow-cooker can be your answer to so many school night cooking conundrums. It is also possible to flip the switch early in the day, leave the house, and return to a nearly complete dinner that both the kids AND parents will love. It makes the school nights so much more manageable and delicious for everyone. Here are a few of our personal favorites to start you off on the right foot! - By Kelsey Banfield
