About: Hi, I'm Jen! In my free time I'm a crafter, food lover, and cake decorator. I also can't stop taking photographs! I have a genuine love and appreciation for all things creative and handmade.

Lasagna is typically a labor of love with all that it involves. Boiling noodles, making sauce and layering ingredients into a pan takes a lot of time. Making it in a crock pot cuts the time down significantly! This is a great weekday meal for busy families!
