Pin-Spired – Slow Cooker Edition

Hello all! Tomorrow is November 1st already!! It’s getting chillier by the minute here in Philly – time to bring out the jackets, boots, dark rinsed jeans and that occasional hat! 😉

Besides the fashion, Fall time is great for comfort foods…especially those smooth pumpkin spice lattes (mmmm). I want to try something new and prepare some meals during the weekend to make for the next few days. I got a new crockpot and found some recipes on Pinterest to try.

You can buy a slow cooker just about anywhere nowadays

I believe this is a 4-qt pot. Fits a good amount of food 🙂

For anyone whose never used a slow cooker before, IT’S THE BEST! Start off earlier in the day and prepare some raw food (I.e. a roast, potatoes, other veggies) in this electric pot, add some seasonings, put the lid on and set it to cook for up to 8 hours. Want something quickly? Put the setting on “high.” By the time you come home, your house will smell lovely. It takes some prep time earlier in the day, but it’s all worth it when you have a full dinner ready for you.

I am antsy on using the slow cooker for other things besides pot roast dinners. Here are some new meals I found on Pinterest! Push the pics below for the direct recipe:
