The three things to consider when creating a DIY college care package are to make it personalized, helpful and sharable.
When the cooler air finally settles in for the fall, you’ll want to have hearty, seasonal recipes on hand.

It’s perfect! With these slow cooker recipes, you’ll always have something tasty to eat in the fall.
