      One of our most-viewed recipes is classic slow cooker pot roast, and we think we know why it’s so popular. After all, it only involves dumping a few simple ingredients into the slow cooker and walking away for 8 hours! So how can we achieve the same bang for our buck, but with a twist that makes pot roast special for the holidays?

      To start, we simply add a few seasonal root vegetables like turnips and rutabaga. Then, we dress up the sauce with flavorful spices and succulent cranberries. Add a few sprigs of fresh herbs before placing on the table, and Voila! Dinner is served, and my, does it look tasty! This year, the holidays will be as easy as any weekday dinner, but with all the exceptional and thoughtful touches that make the season sparkle.
