The leaves are just starting to change color here in the Midwest and that means the crock pot is coming out and stew, soups and casseroles are returning to my meal plan! My husband and I are recommitting to our nutrition so many of this week’s recipes are found in Autumn Calabrese’s Fixate Cookbook!
