For the Love of Cooking {Fall Favorites}

Woohoo!!! I've been looking forward to this day 
for a few weeks now!  It's hibernation season (as I call it)!  Time to
break out those big chunky sweaters, your super stylish boots, 
and oh yea one of my favorite accessories, scarves!
My arms are reached out wide welcoming the cozy 
season that is FALL! 

I am by no means a chief, but I do love to cook!
On a busy week, for the simplest yet tastiest dishes I  turn
to my trusty ole crockpot! It is always a  guaranteed home run
in the Gaither house.  

Here are few of my faves!
