I don’t know what I would do without my crock pot on cold winter days. It makes everything so much easier. From homemade chicken soup to chili, there’s a crock pot recipe for most things I have in my freezer. I’ve even seen recipes for crock pot cobblers, but I haven’t tried one yet.
We’re in the middle of some serious arctic air here in the Ozarks, and I always feel the need to make savory dishes on days like this. I also have an uncanny urge to bake when it snows. I guess my brain is hard wired to produce hot comfort food when everyone is forced to stay indoors.
I also made peanut butter cookies, which are my husband’s favorite food. He worked hard shoveling our sidewalk and driveway. When he came into the house after clearing a path for us through the snow, I presented him with a warm peanut butter cookie. His face lighting up in pure bliss was all the thanks I needed. I sent a bag of my cookies with him for my mother-in-law when he went to her house to shovel her sidewalk and driveway. I wanted to share the love with her, too.
