A Big thanks to my friend Christina Dymock for sharing her delicious and healthy slow cooker recipe–a perfect meal for this busy holiday season!

This week is a busy week. Between the release of Echo Ridge, the start of the holiday season, and the candy high the kids are riding after Halloween, we could use some hearty and healthy food. These Turkey/Veggie Joes from The Healthy Family Slow Cooker Cookbook are perfect. They cook the day away in the slow cooker and are hot and ready to serve just in time for my big and busy boys.

Use some of that extra time to read a good book! There are just a few days left to get our Christmas Kisses anthology for only 99 cents!  Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, iTunes, GooglePlay, Smashwords
