This Hot Dulce de Leche Chai is sure to warm you up on these cold winter nights. Simmered in the slow cooker, it’s as easy as pouring all the ingredients in the crock and letting it simmer away!

I’m excited to be a part of “Crockuary” – a full month that Tammilee has dedicated to recipes made in the slow cooker. It’s amazing how dependent we become on this appliance during the winter months specially, although throughout the year it’s a time saver for busy weeks. When brainstorming what to make in my slow cooker, I decided on a hot drink: it’s trendy to make small batches of drinks in slow cookers, it’s super simple, and the results are fabulous!

And sure, everyone will love a cinnamon-spiced hot chocolate as you welcome them into your home, but how about serving up mugs of this Hot Dulce de Leche Chai? It’s sweet, decadent, and takes it less than 5 minutes to throw together!…

Crock Pot Pear Butter Recipe

I am deeply in love with this Crock Pot Pear Butter Recipe! I already loved the crock pot but you add in the sweet smell of pears and I am sold!

With John sick this week I needed to use up a ton of pears that I had for his lunches. I decided to try my hand at making pear butter. I of course had to use the crock pot to make the recipe. I am absolutely hooked on crock pot recipes. There is nothing quite like getting the Crock Pot set up and walking away from it. The Crock Pot does all the work and you get the satisfaction of an amazing meal to serve to your family.

Crock Pot Bourbon Banana Bread

Oh my yumminess is how I would describe this Crock Pot Bourbon Banana Bread! This bread is decadent, rich and oh so tasty! The house smells so good while this is baking. The bourbon adds a nice rich flavor to the banana bread with a bit of crunch from the pecans.

I am so glad we picked up a bottle of bourbon while we were in St. Thomas on our cruise a few weeks ago. I am looking forward to making many fall recipes with the bourbon. I really like the smoky rich flavor it added to this Bourbon Banana Bread. Do you have any recipes you love for Fall?

Now that the weather is cooling off here in Spokane I am starting to think about heartier recipes. I see a lot of crock pot recipes coming up on the blog over the next few months. The house smells so good all day while the crock pot is going. This is a dangerous benefit/temptation when you work from home.
