Warm Up with Lighter, Satisfying Meals from Your Slow-Cooker

The New Year brings plenty of cold weather and that often inspires a craving for warm, comforting meals. After the holiday rush and lots of big meals during December, you may also be looking for healthier meal ideas that will satisfy the whole family without requiring too much effort. From College Bowl games to the Super Bowl, this is also a prime time of the year for some new snack options. You can make a variety of dishes using a slow-cooker that will meet all of these needs and more!
