Autumn and winter is the time for warm hearty comfort foods, but if like me you don’t get much time to cook then these dishes will save you time and you will still get your tasty meals to warm you up on those chilly days. All of these meals are slow cooker and family-friendly. I cook all of these meals for my family and they always go down a treat!
This dish reminds me so much of my childhood. Just the smell brings back so many memories of my mum preparing this before the school run and coming home to the house smelling of stew! I now make this for my children!
Boil the veggies until semi-soft, then place all the ingredients into your slow cooker and leave to cook for a minimum of 3/4 hours.
My great Nan made the most belly-warming chicken casserole, which was always followed by an apple and rhubarb crumble (with custard of course)!
Lightly fry off the chicken, just to seal, then put all of the ingredients into your slow cooker and leave to cook for a minimum of 2 hours. I like to serve mine with some boiled new potatoes.
This is a nice simple, cheap meal what will warm you up on those frosty days!
This is a really nice easy recipe and is perfect for the slow cooker, I would suggest part boiling the potatoes first. Add the kale (can be served separately or put in with the rest of the ingredients) and you’ve got a perfectly healthy warm meal for winter, serve with a nice slice of a crusty loaf for extra points!
I love honey and who knew it would go so well with chicken. This has to be one of my favourites, and my children love it too!
You can make this one of two ways, either in the slow cooker for 2/3 hours (perfect if your going out for the day) or you can roast it in the oven for 30 minutes at 150 deg C. If your roasting this dish, then I’d squeeze the honey over the top of the chicken just before it goes in the oven this will give you a lovely sweet glaze over your chicken. Again I like to serve this with either boiled new potatoes or roast potatoes!

Losing one’s job is painful, it can be one of the most destructive events happening in ones life. I should know I have been through a few of them. Most recently I was laid off March 2nd, 2023. An unexpected shock as the organization I worked for gave no indication there would be any form […]
The pain of being laid off is affecting thousands, but mostly in big tech. It saddens me to say I was just laid off and although I did not work or one of the major big tech companies like Twitter, Alphabet and others we were still apart of financial tech. Here is a recent article […]
Happy New Year 2023! What the new year means to me, to you, to the world. It means something different for everyone. Some create resolutions for the new year to be new person, new goals. I am often reminded of when I would attend my local gym, a 24-hour fitness which by the way is […]
