As the Christmas weather begins to settle in I’m ready for easy-to-make comfort foods. One of the simplest ways to make a meal with a lot of flavor, and little hassle, is by using a Crock-Pot. You just put everything into the pot, turn it on and walk away. So easy! My mother regularly made Crock-Pot meals when I was growing up and I have found this is the best way to cook Pot Roast. It makes the meat so juicy and flavorful it just falls apart. Perfect!
