Since I turned the calendar page to August (okay, my calendar app did that), life got busy. Everyday seems not to have enough hours. School, errands, new recipes, photos, videos, laundry (ugh, that always appears out of nowhere!), dishes – so.much.to.do. At least dinner is easy. I said it so many times before, here on my blog and to my friends, that I am so grateful for the invention of a slow cooker. This machine saves me so often and our dinner time too. When Crock-Pot® invited me to create recipes this fall using their slow cooker, I was thrilled! I am a huge fan of the Crock-Pot® brand and all of it’s countertop appliances, most of all the original slow cooker.

I know I am not alone in this busy time of year and try to find ways to make every day easier. I hope this recipe will do just that. Cheesy comfort food that takes only few minutes to prep and cooks pretty much itself. Yes, winning at dinner time every weeknight!

Muffins are my most common go to snack to make. I love to bake a batch and have my children pick out the add-ons. Watching the muffins rise and bake in the oven is like watching magic for them. Waiting for them to cool is the hardest because they can’t wait to dig in!

Even though me homeschool, I still love to make lunches that I can prep in the morning while the kids are still asleep and when it’s lunch time, all they need to do is help place everything on the plates. When we are running errands or go on a road trip, I always take muffins into our lunch bag.
