I'm sure I've told you this before, but one of my favorite things to cook on busy nights are slow cooker recipes. My other favorite thing to cook is a casserole. Casseroles are easy for the same reason as slow cooker recipes. You generally throw it all together and go! They are extremely delicious and most of the time, creamy. I envision creamy foods more appropriate during the winter, but are always good for dinner.
