Full disclosure: My crockpot has been sitting dormant for the past six full months. However—I think this is the week it finally sees the light of a cozy day. If you don't have one, you might want to take advantage of the fact that my All-Clad version (which I love) is currently 20% off here with code THANKS. The crock pot is a game changer in the world of meal prep, but I’m also really into some of the more seasonally delightful creations you can make in a crockpot when you’re hosting (or just really craving some apple cider TBH). Try making your winter & holiday big-batch cocktails in your crockpot, they'll be real crowd pleasers. And, if you stumble upon a soup recipe or two I need to know about, speak up.
