I may not be a recipe maker, but I AM a lazy cook. So I figured if I'm not going to share lazy recipes with you, I can at least share some lazy cooking tips that I've discovered along the way. Also, I just wanted to say thank you so much for the support from last week's post!

It's a true game changer.
I even have a couple of crock pot recipe posts on the blog if you want to give them a try:
What do you think of this new series? I'm thinking about doing it once a month, but maybe it could be more frequent. Let me know in the comments below!
