And now, I’m craving chicken and dumplings, chili and cornbread and chicken alfredo! Yum!

Hope you all are staying warm!


Happy Tuesday! We’re back home from our escape to warmer weather and time with family. It was a bit crazy to leave 80-degree temperatures on Sunday to come home to a forecast of ice and snow overnight on Monday. Just the thought of it had me pulling out the slow cooker that I keep in our RV to make a big batch of white chicken chili for our supper!

There’s nothing like starting something at the beginning of a trip, smelling it cooking for nine to ten hours and over 500 miles, but then having a hot meal for supper ready when you arrive home.

Boy did the trip smell amazing!

Thank goodness for slow cookers! Especially the kind with secure locking lids for the bumps along the way!




So, to celebrate being home, having tons of laundry to catch up on, but loving having a hot meal ready when needed, I’m giving away a slow cooker to TWO members of the Add a Pinch family. 

To enter, leave a comment on this post about your favorite cold weather meal!

This giveaway ends Wednesday, February 25th at 11:59 PM eastern. I’ll randomly select the TWO winners and contact him or her via email and update this post. Good luck!

Love ya!

  1. Mmmmmmmmm, I have so many … soups, chili, granola, frijoles negors … but right now I’m smelling the onions I’m caramelizing for part of tonight’s dinner and am loving it!

  2. Our favourite cold weather meal is good old fashioned English fish and chips with a bottle of Chiantis in a very hot bath!!! Ian walton

  3. On a cold day putting chili in a crock pot is the best way to start your day off, having a nice warm meal waiting for my husband when he gets home is wonderful . I love cooking in a crock pot , so many meals you can make in them, even mu busband loves using it. I have to share mine with him, he likes to rake it to work and cook for his co workers, they enjoy it so much . Thanks for posting all the different tyles of soups, I enjoy them very much !!!!

  4. My favorite cold-weather crockpot dish “Drunken Pig Soup” and the family gets excited about it every time I make it. Yum! It is my own recipe and I’ll gladly share with anyone interested.

  5. I have missed my slow cooker this year, it got lost in a flood.

    I would use it all week at times, making Bone Broth to add different vegetables and meats throughout the different days.

    Love your site!

  6. I love making all my chili recipes, soups, mustard chicken, etc in my crock pot!! I have so many recipes but my crock pot got dented in my move and it is not working correctly! Need a new one – and it is sooo cold this winter. Geri

  7. Ham & Beans with fried potatoes & sweet cornbread. Dang! Now I have to go start a crock pot of it! It’s gonna be good! Especially with all this cold weather going on…

  8. As a Southern (Alabama) girl, I aways put on a pot of chili. Chili, cold weater, and snow (like today!) just seem to go together. It’s one if our favorites, and has now become a tradition. If I don’t have ingredients for chili, then old fashion beef stew is a great second choice.

  9. My favorite cold weather meal is my homemade Chicken Stew! I look forward to cold rainy days (which don’t happen too often here in Southern California) to make my stew!

  10. I love your Balsamic Pork. We are making a batch to use as our Saturday Sampler in our store. (an olive oil and vinegar tasting bar, so have lots of Balsamics to choose from.

  11. My favorite slow cooker recipe is Swiss steak. My Dad prepared this meal Once a year about this time. We loved it. Many years past since then. With 4 children and a full time job There never anough time to cook this. I used my old 3 qt crock pot one yr. We loved it. It turned out better then fussing over the pot on the stove. I have been making swiss steak every year since.

  12. Love a slow cooker pot roast the first night, then return the leftover roast to the crock pot the next day with enchilada sauce, black beans, green chiles etc. for a great taco filling.

  13. I would LOVE to win one of these slow cookers because I have been wanting one for YEARS, but I can’t afford one. Everyday, I look at these delicious recipes and I just drool. This would make a great graduation gift for me so that I can use these recipes and share the food with others.

  14. My favorite cold weather meal is homemade turkey noodle soup and grilled cheese sandwiches (with 3 different cheeses). Thanks for hosting the giveaway!
