One of my favorite parts about this time of year is all the warm, hearty, ooey gooey recipes I get to make! And the best thing is pulling out the crockpot nearly every day, which makes staying nourished so much easier!
Over the years I’ve compiled a selection of recipes I love to make for my family during the cold weather months, and thought I’d share them with you in case you needed a little inspiration to mix things up!Check out this great roundup of cold weather recipes! Click To Tweet
Several of these are great prepared in advance and frozen, so you can work ahead and prepare for the cold days to come when you really want to hibernate!
Chicken soup is obviously a cold weather staple, and can be extremely nutritious if done correctly. I love to make my own slow cooker chicken bone broth to use for our soups to increase immunity through the fall and winter.
My husband was born and raised in Arizona, so we are big fans of Southwestern food around here. I love this one-pan casserole-style dish and it’s a huge hit with everyone in the family. Pair it with some chips and salsa, and you’ve got the perfect dish to kick up the heat on a cold night!
Nothing says fall like beer, bratwursts and brussels sprouts! I love that this dish is so simple, so healthy, and super delicious. Not to mention easy, and your hubby is sure to love it!
This is a classic cold weather staple recipe, and every time I eat it, I get all the warm and fuzzy feels! This recipe is a pretty good, healthy option as opposed to some other (not so healthy) classic versions.
For some reason anytime I see or heart of crock pot roasts I always picture the Brawny man – you know, lumberjack style with the jeans, and boots and red plaid flannel shirt? I have no idea why….probably because this is such a “man” recipe haha. BUT, it’s not just for the men – this recipe is delicious!
We LOVE chili in our house and you know it’s officially fall when the first football game of the season comes on and we enjoy it with our first pot of crock pot chili. This is the basic recipe that I follow but I adapt it a little to use a can each of black beans, pinto beans and kidney beans. Soon I’ll be posting my adapted version, but this will do for now 😉
This is a nice mixed up take on classic minestrone soup wit the addition of kielbasa and no pasta (yay gluten free!) The flavors are so yummy and it’s a really easy recipe that will make you feel like you’re an awesome cook, without having to work too hard!
