During these cold winter months my crock-pot is literally a dinner saver. The evenings really do feel shorter with it getting dark so early and nothing starts my day off on the right track like having dinner in the crock-pot first thing in the morning! Not to mention, who doesn’t love the smell of comfort food in the kitchen after a long day? I love this easy beef stew because not only is it hearty and flavorful but it is chock-full of veggies and pretty guilt free! It has become a staple at our house lately and I know you will love it!
