I'm a working mom who doesn't like to spend my whole evening in the kitchen away from my family but also likes to put decently healthy meals on the table. I also love recipes that make lots so my husband and I can take them to work for lunch through the week. I like casseroles but try to avoid the canned soup stuff that most of them require. Help me out here if you can! :)

    I have a fair number of recipes that fit your category (many nights a week of kids' activities and need to rely on the slow cooker / pressure cooker!). Feel free to add me.
