Delicious, Easy, Healthy. My perfect meal in 3 words. Especially tucking in with a warm bowl that’s just waiting for us after a long day of work or chilly afternoon of fall clean up in the yard. The slow cooker becomes my best friend through the autumn and winter months, as I know it is for many of you! I haven’t gotten on the Instapot train yet, I actually prefer that it takes a really long time for the meal to cook, that way it can be cooking for me while I’m away for the day.
Once the frost hits, I take to Pinterest (you can find me here) and pin my little heart out. Each recipe looking more divine than the last. Here are 13 wholesome, flavourful recipes that your whole family will love.
