Who wants to work all day and then come home and spend an hour or two preparing dinner? There are a few tips though that can save you even more time and allow you to get the most out of your slow cooker.

One thing you can do to make things easier is prepare as much as you can before bed and put this in the refrigerator. Then when you get up in the morning, you can throw everything in your slow cooker and your off! There are some ingredients that you will not be able to do this with so be sure to check your recipe and prepare as much as possible. After all, you have enough to do in the morning with getting ready for work, breakfast, the kids and so on.

If you are using fresh vegetables in your recipe, it is best to place these on the bottom of the slow cooker as they take longer than meat. Canned vegetables cook fast and should be placed over the meat.
