Today was the first day that many felt the cold gust of winter wind in the air, and you know what that made us want for lunch? Something warm and comforting. If we could live in a bowl of warm oatmeal or rich stew throughout the winter, we probably would.
Unfortunately – because that has yet to become possible – we will revert our attention to making decadent and delicious meals that will satisfy our every sense. As the days get shorters and the plethora of holiday tasks and activities pop up here and there, we also find ourselves feeling not only chilly but also a little tired and worn out. Sometimes when we get home at around 6:30 it will already be pitch black, and the last thing we feel like doing is cooking an elaborate meal. The remedy for this? Using a slow cooker or crockpot!
Slow cookers allow your recipes to be cooked overnight or during the day, so that when you arrive home you will have ready-cooked meals to be gobbled up. From breakfast to dessert, we’ve got you covered with the healthiest and most heart-warming dishes ever.
