Nonetheless, we’ve got some amazing heart-shaped treats, etc. to share with you. My bloggy friends worked hard on these for Valentine’s Day so share, pin, comment, like, and show some love!

A Slow Cooker Pot Roast Recipe

A Simple Slow Cooker Pot Roast - My family's favorite pot roast recipe. It has simple, wholesome ingredients and it will have your loved ones returning to the dinner table again and again. Ode to the crock pot!January 31, 2017

We moved from Dallas to an Amish town in rural Ohio about 1 month after we got married. We were only there for about a year because my husband’s business project came to end. It was a rough year though and I was homesick a lot. However, one good thing did come out of it . . . slow cooker pot roast!

In hopes of making the most out of the harsh cold weather during my first winter up north, I cooked a lot of pot roasts. Through these recipe trials and an even more trying winter, I finally came up with a slow cooker pot roast that works for us. It’s a simple recipe but it turns out great every time. It has had my hubby returning to the dinner table for about 5 years now so it must be worth sharing.
