This time of year, the slow cooker is your friend. Winter has been long, and while you may see signs of spring, they can be deceiving. At the end of the day you still want a warm, soft, comforting sort of meal.
A slow cooker can be the easiest appliance in the world to operate. Throw in whatever sliced and/or frozen veggies you have, add a hunk of meat (or not) and walk away. Many hours later the house smells great and you can sit back and enjoy a steaming bowl of goodness.
