It’s the beginning of September and I have already pulled out my slow cooker in anticipation of the fall season.

Don’t get me wrong, I love summer, but there is something magical about fall in my eyes and when it rolls around each year, I try to take full advantage.

Something else I like to take full advantage of when the cooler seasons approach is my slow cooker. Is there really any better invention of convenience? Throw your ingredients in, set it and forget it. Doesn’t get much easier. You don’t have to be a culinary pro to figure it out, but the end result can sure trick people into believing otherwise.
