It’s Crocktober, that means it’s crockpot season!


I love pulling my crockpot out of storage this time of year; it’s one of my favorite cold-weather appliances.  If you don’t have one, I recommend getting this crockpot.  It comes in four different colors: chevron, purple, charcoal, and turquoise, so you can easily match your kitchen decor and then feel good about displaying it on a kitchen counter when not in use.  This crockpot features a durable, stainless steel exterior with a removable dishwasher-safe stoneware crock insert and glass lid.  It’s easy to cook meals using the high/low cook settings and even has a convenient warm setting to keep foods warm and ready to eat after cooking is complete.




Crockpots can save you a ton of time, especially if you’re like me and have a busy schedule.  The ease of use can be a lifesaver since you can just dump the ingredients in, set the temperature to high or low depending on the recipe and voila, arrive home to a delicious and nutritious done for you meal.

This veggie chili has just the right amount of flavor and heat without meat to leave you feeling satisfied without feeling full.  It makes a great #meatlessmonday option!  Don’t shy away from making this if you have meat-eaters in your family, I do too, and even my boys don’t miss the meat when I serve this because it tastes delicious.
