There’s nothing better than comfort food on chilly evenings, and after my trip to visit my sister in Jackson Hole, I was inspired to come up with a clean version of one of my favorite comfort food crock pot recipes, beef stew.  Stay tuned later this week for a few other crock pot recipes we created during our ski trip!
