Every year as that very last leaf falls, the end of autumn is not far behind and winter is on its way.  With the change of seasons comes the hustle and bustle of the holidays.  Shopping, school concerts and family gatherings fill the calendar and it always seems like we're watching the ball drop on New Year's Eve while wondering where December went.  

This busy time of year is a wonderful time to get reacquainted with your trusty old slow cooker.  After a late night of present wrapping, Santa watching and kids who are too excited to fall asleep, it's nice to have an easy breakfast option that will cook itself without compromising the delicious taste.  This Slow Cooker Candy Cane French Toast puts a festive touch on a traditional breakfast favorite.
