If you’re looking for something differently delicious, then I hope you’ll give my slow cooker pumpkin butter a try.
I use my slow cooker a lot. I mean, A LOT! And as a working mom, it’s the main reason my family has food for dinner on busy weeknights.
I equate having a slow cooker to having a personal chef on hand. I can five it all of my ingredients at the start of the day, and come home to delicious food magic in the evening!
While I primarily use it for main course meals like soups, chilis, stews and more, I’ve made a few desserts in it too. I even use it to keep things warm on a holiday buffet!
