5-Ingredient Slow Cooker Apricot Chicken

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on July 18, 2014

I have a problem. But I know it’s a problem and I’m working on it. Each week is different, some weeks better than others. Here is my problem: I bite off more than I can chew. (Not with food…with our schedule.) While I crave simplicity and flexibility, I also know that I don’t like to […]
