‘Tis the Season (for Crockpot)!

My crockpot has been in overdrive this month. The frenetic holiday season makes it difficult to dedicate long periods of time to cooking, yet my family and I are craving warm, cozy and healthy meals.  Thus my crockpot has become a very dear and loyal friend. We are all loving this healthy turkey chili that can be mild or spicy and is very easy to make. If you don’t own a crockpot, get one. Amazon sells excellent models at low costs. You can thank me later!

Happy Holidays! ​
