As we sort of step back and take a breather throughout the holidays and then after, I like to step out of the kitchen a bit too. During the holidays, it feels like almost all my free time is spent in the kitchen.

Of course, I am a food blogger, so there is a lot of work for me to do during the holidays but on top of that I am typically making dishes and treats for family too. That means it’s A LOT of cooking during that season, not to mention eating. It was nice knowing you, waistline… oh wait, that was gone ages ago! Let me just finish up this last cookie.

Once the holiday season winds down, I like to use my trusty slow cooker and dream of heading to the spa. Dream… remember that.

Recently, I decided to use a beef roast to make a slow cooker sweet potato roast. I absolutely love the sweetness of sweet potatoes paired with maple and cinnamon. If you top that over a roast, you have a wonderful aroma drifting through your home and a roast bursting with flavor on your tongue. It’s a beautiful pairing. Plus, it’s so delicious!

My husband is a skeptic of roasted beef. He is just not a huge fan of roast beef, but when it’s combined with maple, he’s all in.

This roast can be topped with cinnamon and sweet potatoes, or you could even add sweet onions as well if you would like. This particular time I left the onions out, although I like how they complement this dish too.

Do you need a little bit of a cooking break? If so, be sure to add this slow cooker recipe to your menu, then head to the spa while dinner cooks itself. I promise, you deserve it!
