Heather at Celiac Family will be hosting the Gluten Free Menu Swap this week.  The theme is “Slow Cooker.”   If you have ever taken even the littlest peek at my blog, you know I have a deep love for my slow cooker.  Well, I should say slow cookers (yes, I do have more than one.  Eh-hem…)    Any-hoo, all my slow cooker tastiness can be found on my Slow Cooker Recipe Page.  Nom, nom, nom!  I am cranking up the slow cooker love all week!  What is your favorite thing to fix in the slow cooker?
