The simplicity and deliciousness of this recipe will convert you to being a vegetarian (if you aren’t already), because we bet you can’t get enough.

These soft and tender fall-of-the-bone ribs will be perfect for anyone at almost anytime. As with all slow cooked recipes, you can’t go wrong with this one too. This is probably the most familiar dish to our taste buds in this whole list, perfect for those who are more comfortable with tastes from home. Remember to use low sodium soy sauce to avoid feeling like you are eating something cooked with Dead Sea’s water.

5) Zesty Lemon Garlic Chicken

Okay, I was wrong. This recipe is even easier than the lasagne’s. But that is not even the best thing about this foolproof recipe.Yes, you guessed it! It is yet another rendition of our (my) favourite “cai fan” lemon chicken, but this time, better with a twist of garlic and fresh thyme.

6) Tender Salmon with a tinge of Lemon

Another recipe that uses lemons – this vitamin C-packed citrus wonder has got to be my favourite. Salmon is not only delicious and flavourful, it may even help lower you risk of getting a heart disease, arthritis, and more. Enjoy this nutrition-filled meal for both the kids and yourself.

7) Tomato Soup for the Soul with Basil and Parmesan

Tomato soup is probably everyone’s all time favourite soup. This recipe is super easy to make, and your kids will love the parmesan.

BONUS: Chocolatey Gooey Brownie

Raise your hands if you are a fan of chocolate lava cakes! This brownie is sure to be a favourite among you chocolate fanatics. It is the best dessert for a cosy weekend night while watching your favourite movie. Caution: Do not wear a white shirt when consuming this.

 If you don’t already own a slow cooker, I hope this convinces you to get one! Despite the long time it takes to prepare the food, the slow cooker is really convenient. It is also healthier, as the slow heat gently cooks meat, hence reducing harmful compounds that meat might generate. And there is an added bonus of making any cheap cuts of meat extremely tender.
