Make sure dinner's waiting when you get home


Good intentions are all very well, but when you get home after a long day, it might be tempting to fall back on convenient foods that aren't that healthy. The Russell Hobbs slow cooker from Debenhams (£25) can hold 3.5L of deliciousness, and even has a chalkboard front, so the whole family will know what's cooking and when it'll be ready! Vegetable stew anyone? Yum.
