One thing I loved about fall as a kid was when my mom pulled out her trusty Crock-Pot and got to work on preparing hearty stews for our family.
The entire house would be filled with the tantalizing smells of her delicious meals, and I could almost never stop myself from sneaking a taste whenever she wasn't looking.
Now that the cool season is here, I find myself wanting to recreate her recipes. Unfortunately, I don't have my own slow cooker, but I just might have to cough up the money to get one -- especially now that I've seen all the amazing dishes I can make with them.
1. Because really, who doesn't love chicken fajitas?
