First of all, I am so excited to tell you that I am guest posting today over at Ginger Snap Crafts! Ginger has one of my favorite craft blogs and I am so honored to be one of her fall contributors. I shared a really fun Halloween craft – be sure to hop on over there to check it out!
It is a chilly, rainy, gloomy day here in central PA today. Boo. But this weather makes me think of cold weather comfort food…soups, stews, chilis…yum! So many of those good old-fashioned cold weather comfort foods are delicious – and EASY – in the slow cooker! I’ve got a Pinterest Board full of great slow cooker recipes and ideas, and I thought today would be a good day to share 3 slow cooker recipes that are on my I-have-to-try-this list!
I came across this Slow Cooker Chicken & Dumpling recipe from Your Home Based Mom just today, but it looks so yummy! My husband is a big fan of chicken & dumplings, so I know I will be giving this a try soon.
Crock Pot is always my go-to way of cooking a pot roast (though sometimes I use a pressure cooker when I’m short on time)…but this Crock Pot Balsamic Roast over on Julie’s Eats and Treats looks like a delicious and out of the ordinary way to prepare a roast. Comfort food, indeed!
I’ve never made Italian food in my Crock Pot, but Family Fresh Meal’s Crock Pot Lasagna Soup makes me want to try it! I bet it would be perfect with some crusty garlic bread.
I don’t know about you, but my mouth is watering over here! I have a feeling I’ll be trying out these recipes sooner rather than later. If you give them a try, let me know how it turns out! And I’m always looking for new ways to use my slow cooker – what are your favorite recipes?
Hope you have a fantastic weekend!
