'Tis the season for meals that cook all day long filling your home with delicious aromas.

I was gifted a slow cooker after a roommate of mine was getting married and received two off of her registry. Boy, you would have thought I had just been proposed to with that gift. I was elated to receive what I believe is one of the best kitchen gadgets to have in your home. Ever since I was a kid, I loved smelling that meal cooking away all day long.

It made eating feel like an all-day event.

So, in my quest to find new slow cooker recipes, I stumbled across "The Best Slow Cooker Recipes from Every State" on Taste of Home. Jackpot! Not only could I find new recipes to test out, but I could eat my way through the nation. Basically, Taste of Home received a bunch of slow cooker recipes from cooks all over and determined which ones were the best in each state.

They chose a recipe for Sweet and Sour Meatballs in Wyoming.

This recipe was submitted by Rachelle Stratton of Rock Springs, Wyoming. This recipe stands out for the homemade meatballs. The combination of vinegar, brown sugar, chili and tomato sauces bring out the sweet and sour. I make a similar dish, but just use chili sauce and grape jelly... Trust me, it's delicious!
