Brrr! Like much of the country, winter is in full swing here in Denver. Honestly, the weather has been fairly mild for the most part, but weeks like this one have reminded us that even though some days may climb into the 50s, it’s still January.
When the air is cold air and frost is on the windows, I always want food that is comforting. Warm soups, pasta, and hearty one pot meals are often at the top of my comfort food list. I guess that’s why during the cold winter months I often find myself reaching for my crockpot more than any other time. In fact, my slow cooker collects dust most of the time during the summer. I guess that’s why they have named January National Slow Cooking Month. Honestly, I can’t think of a more appropriate month to pay homage to this trusty, indispensable appliance.
If you are looking for some hearty, delicious dinners to make in your slow cooker this winter, you’ve come to the right place!
