Q My wife's exercise class has a potluck luncheon once a month after class. As I'm the cook in the family, I'm always looking for dishes that I can make in a slow cooker to send with her. Help, please!

- Paul


After a strenuous workout, lunch should be easy. Slow cooker dishes are a great way to have a hearty meal ready right away. Create your own taco bar with Make-Ahead Fajitas. The meat slow cooks with onions and peppers, and you can send along the extra fixings and tortillas in a lunch cooler ready to go. Even easier is Vegetarian 15-Bean Chili – don’t forget the shredded cheddar to melt on top. Another delicious option is rich and creamy Slow Cooker Chicken Chowder.

With lunch plugged in nearby, you’ll give them all something to look forward to during those last seemingly impossible ab crunches!
