Comfort Food at It’s Best!

You guys know how I LOVE LOVE LOVE my slow cooker…right?!  I mean, you just toss dinner in, go do whatever needs to be done all day, and come home to a dinner that’s ready to eat!  If you have never cooked dinner in a slow cooker– give it a try– you’ll be totally addicted!  This is my favorite slow cooker because you can just set it and forget it– when your food is done it automatically switches over to warm mode.  It’s perfect for those days when you’re not quite sure if you’ll be home in time.

Oh, and clean-up is a breeze because it’s just one dish….and now that I use slow cooker liners clean up is even easier! Seriously, if you haven’t tried slow cooker liners yet you MUST…they are AWESOME!  And, no this is not a sponsored post for slow cooker liners.

Anyway, there’s something about beef and potatoes that just makes the perfect comfort food for cold days.  It’s such a hearty dish and the gravy….oh the gravy…it’s like the icing of dinner.  Slow Cooker Beef Tips with Gravy Recipe

    OMGoodness, my mouth is watering! I am expecting guests this weekend and I have been fumbling over what to have for a meal. I really wanted something different rather than having the same old dishes I usually offer. This is it! What perfect timing, and I can’t wait to make it. Thank you so much for sharing and including the awesome picture.
