When I have a busy day or have to be out all day I love coming home to dinner in the crock pot. The second you open the door you know somethings cooking. Then 5 minutes later you think you’re starving even though you weren’t hungry 10 minutes before. I think we’ve all done that.

I love cooking with Simply Potatoes, they have so many varieties to choose from. Simply Potatoes are fresh potatoes and never frozen. You can find them over at the refrigerated dairy section of your supermarket. The best thing about them is they are so easy to prepare and ready whenever you need them. No peeling or shredding required! They’re also made with real ingredients like milk and butter. A couple of them even come seasoned. I’ve tried the Garlic and Herb Hash Browns and love them.
