I really love cooking with the slow cooker!!!! I can throw it in before work and when I come home, dinner is ready for the whole family!!!! In the winter months, nothing tastes better than a warm chili. When I make one of the chili recipes, we have featured on our blog, seriously, my girls do the happy dance!!! Little do they know that this chili is such a healthy choice for dinner.
