Once school starts and the weather turns colder, my slow cooker is a staple on the kitchen counter. Warm dinners ready when I get home from work soothe my soul, and bring calm to my evenings. One our family favorites is slow cooker chili mac.

Slow cookers allow you to add the ingredients, turn it on and walk away to let it do it’s thing. It is so amazing coming home to a home cooked meal each night without the work.
