A few weeks back I made a list of my favorite slow-cooker recipes cobbled together from various social media and blogs I read. My slow-cooker is convenient, but I don’t use it every night. So in the spirit of fairness, here are some non-slow-cooker favorites we’ve added to our meal rotation of late. Funeral Sandwiches …
