Winter is definitely on its way!

That can mean only one thing…. slow cooker season!

We absolutely LOVE our slow cooker… it is the perfect piece of kitchen equipment for the busiest of lifestyles and you can make so many tasty, healthy and convenient meals in it – what’s not to love?

The best part is, you can make a large batch of food, portion it and chill / freeze it for your week ahead!
