There are few things I enjoy about the transition from Summer to Fall and Winter, yet at the top of my list is using the slow cooker more often. This handy sidekick is the highlight of the season and one of my all-time favourite small appliances. 

When cold winds blow there is nothing like comfort meals this time of year. Yet, said comfort meals generally take more time to prepare and cook yet we all know that we are not allotted more time in our day to accommodate.

My schedule is still as busy as ever, plus it takes more time to travel to activities in this season, so it’s almost like I have less time in my day. So, where does one find the solution to having those comfort foods in such a busy schedule?

That’s right, my best friend – the slow cooker.

So much can be said for having a meal ready for you, when you get home. Walking in the door to the aroma of dinner waiting for you – is something special {kinda like clean sheet day}.

I have a few hearty soup recipes in my own ‘Recipe Box’ here on My Organized Chaos, yet I’m always wanting to add to that collection. There’s also a wonderful Creamy Chicken Stew as well. I do my best to keep you warm!

Making my own soups never used to be appealing, why bother when it comes in a can? Yet, from the first time I made my own soup and tasted that fresh and hearty goodness, I was hooked. This crockpot potato soup is one that made me fall in love with making my own.

Now, it’s become one of my favourite meals to make in the crock pot. Hot soup with a creamy texture waiting for you when coming in from shovelling on a cold day? Yes, please!
