It makes getting healthy, delicious dinner on the table about 6 zillion percent easier, so we have no trouble finding uses for the time-and-effort-saving miracle that is the crockpot year-round. But it’s right about now – as the days get shorter and the temperature dips drastically – that it begins to occupy a nearly permanent place on the kitchen counter.
