There is nothing better than a good bowl of chowder to keep you warm at night! Corn chowder and boston clam chowder are seriously so wonderful, aren’t they?

Whoever invented the crock pot should be honored with a giant golden statue. I mean, really. No other appliance takes SO much work off of the hands of home cooks and gives back freedom and time on busy evenings. A few minutes of prep (mainly dumping stuff in) in the morning and then practically just dishing it out in the evening is pure magic.

The slow cooker recipes that don’t require a whole lot of prep work are my favorite. Using bagged shredded carrots and store-bought pre-diced onions (seriously, brilliant idea!!! I am the worst cryer when it comes to cutting onions!), and tiny baby potatoes means that your prep-work is even faster than normal. Don’t spend precious morning minutes when you could be sipping your coffee or checking facebook browning the chicken, or sautéing the veggies. Just throw everything in and let the slow cooker do the work! Because, seriously, that is what its made for.
