It’s Comfort Food Time. Our Favorite Time of Year. Fall brings cooler weather which means cooler temperatures. Fall brings hearty, traditional and satisfying meals like soups, stews and crock-pot meals. Pot Roast’s are slowed cooked in the oven. Roasted chicken and turkey are back on the menu. Pumpkin, pears, apples and cranberries are turned into delicious desserts. Slow Cookers are brought to the front of the cupboard again for easy access.

Old Fashioned Pork Roast with Vegetables is one such recipe. This recipe has been made so many times in my house I couldn’t even begin to count them. When I was young, my grandma made pork roast often and we loved going there for dinner. My grandma made the best pork roast gravy. Flavorful, thick and deep chocolate brown. My only regret is my grandma never showed me her secret to making her gravy.
