Slow-Cooker Potatoes

I love my slow-cooker. It is so convenient on days that I'm working, to just pop in some food on my way out the door, and come home to an apartment filled with the smell of a dinner that is all ready-to-go. I've even gotten Rob hooked! He recently purchased a small lunch crock-pot of his… Continue reading Slow-Cooker Potatoes

One of our recent date nights had us going to see the movie A Star is Born, starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga.
