Cold Weather Comfort

It’s that time of the year! Everyone is busy picking up last minute Christmas gifts, going to kids’ recitals, wrapping presents, going to holiday parties…you name it. With all of the hustle and bustle, it’s hard to take the time to prepare that delicious heart-warming meal that sounds so tasty when it’s cold out. The easiest way to accomplish this feat is by using the old fashioned slow cooker. With just a little bit of prep work, you can set it and forget it while you are out buzzing around all day! The best part is, you come home to a meal that is ready to go.

One of my absolute favorite recipes during the festive season is beef bourguignon, made famous by chef Julia Childs. This incredibly rich meal can be time consuming (if done the traditional way) but it’s not a hard one to put together using the slow cooker! Here is the recipe that I have been SO happy with. It is a complete meal in itself, is so hearty, and pleases just about any crowd. Feel free to change a few things up as you wish! I am always a fan of getting creative with recipes.
