This week many people are enjoying some time at home with family and friends, but next week it's back to work and those hectic schedules--taking kids to practices and lessons and helping with homework and attending meetings.
For those nights, we are always searching for tasty, FAST recipes we can make for the entire family. We're inviting you to post your ideas below so that we can make a virtual cookbook of sorts as we head into the new year! We'll keep bumping this to the top of the page the next few days so everyone can contribute.
Here are three we discovered to start.
Slow-Cooker BBQ Chicken: http://www.delish.com/cooking/recipe-ideas/recipes/a47545/brown-sugar-bbq-chicken-recipe/
