Happy New Year! January is the perfect month to embrace slow cooking and all things comfort food as you fall back into your post-holiday routine.
In the Northern hemisphere this month brings cold and dark days, which sometimes makes it difficult to find the energy and motivation to make elaborate and tasty meals (not to mention - you're likely exhausted from all the busyness that comes with the holidays...anyone else looking for another holiday after their holiday?).
Thank goodness for crockpots which make it easy to dump all your ingredients in one pot, set it, and then forget it! Plus, the longer it cooks, the tastier it gets.
