In Darlene's kitchen, you're likely to find just about anything except food. She stores her jewelry in her oven and her hair products in her slow cooker.

Instead of storage for scrunchies, Jessica says a slow cooker could be the key to Darlene's easiest dinner ever. "A Crock-Pot is actually a great place to start to learn how to cook because there's no flame," Jessica says.

While slow cookers are often thought of as 1970s throwbacks and only good for making heavy stews, Jessica says she uses hers to make everything from whole small chickens to oatmeal and even lasagna.

"There's no tricks and fancy stuff with my food," Jessica says. "This is giant noodles, tomatoes, some spices, some garlic, cheese—boom! Done!"
