20 Delicious Winter Crock Pot Meal Ideas


Everyone is busy, especially during the winter months. You’ve got the holidays, you’ve got winter kid’s activities, work obligations, and everything in between. Sometimes, getting a hot meal on the table for dinner is next to impossible.

That’s where the trusty old crock pot comes in! All you have to do is start your meal in the morning before you leave for the day. Guess what you get to come home to? A house that smells wonderful and a hot meal that’s been effortlessly cooking all day.

No more hitting the fast food joint for boring dinner dishes that you’ve had twice already this week. Crock meals save you time and money and they are also healthier than eating out.

I’ve decided it would be a great idea to put together a roundup of some of my favorite winter crock pot meals. I’m kind of an authority on the subject because I use my crock pot a lot during the winter months. I don’t even put the thing away. it’s basically a centerpiece in my kitchen.

I think my husband might even miss some of those fast food meals haha! Oh well, when it gets cold, it’s crock pot season, baby!

Well, enough jabbering on. How about we get to that list?

Mexican Chili Lime Chicken

If you’re craving a classy Mexican dish but don’t have time to spend hours cooking in the kitchen, turn to your slow cooker for help. You can cook the main component of this sassy and spicy meal in the crockpot and throw together the other stuff in about 20 minutes.

It’s delicious! My family likes to eat this with tortilla boats. So yummy!

Philly Cheesesteaks

We all love Philly cheesesteaks. Well, at least my family does. They are seriously delicious. Did you know you can cook the meat mixture in your crockpot? Yep! Simply serve it up on buns and add your Swiss cheese for a heck of a meal.

This food is piping hot and perfect on a wintery day.

Pot Roast

A roast is probably one of my favorite things to make in the slow cooker. It comes out so decadent and juicy. You’ll love the gravy that this recipe produces, too. Oh, and the carrots…heavenly! I think crockpot roast carrots are one of my favorite side dishes.

Cooking a roast in your slow cooker is beyond easy. Any first timer can definitely conquer it.

Chicken Supreme

You are going to love the flavor mash-up in this yummy chicken dish. The crockpot cooks it all together so amazingly well. This chicken will literally melt in your mouth.

I like to serve this meal with whipped potatoes and biscuits. Keep it simple by making instant potatoes and frozen biscuits. Easy!

Beef Stroganoff

My family adores beef stroganoff. The meat, the veggies, the noodles! It’s all pretty much a big bowl full of deliciousness. The first time I made this dish in the slow cooker was a mega-hit. I had never added carrots to the mix before, and I’m glad that I did. Delicious!

Creole Chicken and Sausage

This is such a cozy meal with a kick! You don’t need to go to The Big Easy to get yourself a plate of this yumminess. Dump the ingredients in your slow cooker and let the magic happen.

I swear when I eat this meal I can hear blues music playing in my ears.

Sausage Lentil Soup

This is a GREAT idea! This poster takes the easy factor and raises the bar to shockingly simple proportions. So, what you do is place the ingredients into a freezer bag on a cooking prep day. Put the bag in the freezer and when you’re ready to make this heavenly soup, put it into the crockpot. Boom.


I was a little leery the first time I heard of crockpot lasagna, but let me tell ya, it turns out GREAT. You may think that what you’re left with is a pot full of mushy noodles and sauce but on the contrary, my friend! You get a hot helping of firm noodles, melted cheese, and Italian goodness.

Minestrone Soup

There really isn’t anything better than coming out of the cold to a warm house and hot soup simmering in the pot. This soup is delectable. It’s a recipe for homemade minestrone and it couldn’t taste any better than if my grandma came on down from heaven and cooked it herself.

Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Here we have another hot and hearty soup given to us by the dear old crockpot. Doesn’t this dish look steamy and delish? I like to serve this soup with crackers or maybe rolls. I keep it simple. We almost always have seconds and thirds of the stuff so I don’t really need to provide much else as a side. Nobody walks away hungry, that’s for sure!

Honey Garlic Chicken and Veggies

Now, that’s what I call a one pot meal! Everything is made right in the crockpot. There is no need to bugger around with making sides for the honey chicken. All you do is open the pot, plate ‘er up, and eat.

Chicken and Corn Chowder

Chowders are thick, heavy, and hot. The perfect meal on a cold, winter’s day. You can serve these in bread bowls if you want to take that extra step. However, a slice of good ‘ol white bread from the bag will do just fine, too.

Butter Ranch Chicken

This amazing slow cooker meal will totally knock your socks off. For one, you only need 3 ingredients. 3! For two, it tastes amazing. I like to serve this chicken with either buttered noodles or mashed potatoes. We’ve even eaten it with French fries, before. It’s your call, mama.

Shredded BBQ Chicken

Making shredded chicken has never been easier than in the crockpot. The meat becomes so tender that it literally pulls apart like nothing. I shred it with two forks without a problem. You can make your own BBQ sauce or use a store-bought variety. It really doesn’t matter.

Chicken Tortellini

Heres another totally delicious Italian meal made in the crockpot. This tortellini is stuffed with all the good stuff. Set it and forget it. That’s it! Well, until it’s time to eat, that is. Then, stuff your face!

Cola Baby Back Ribs

I don’t know about you, but the thought of coming out of the cold to a crockpot full of cola sauced baby back ribs makes my heart thump. I love this meal! It’s perfect for warming up your hands because you can eat these ribs with your fingers 🙂

Wonderful Pork Tenderloin

Who says you can’t cook fancy in the crockpot? This pork tenderloin cooks up amazingly well and is perfect for serving wintertime guests. You could probably even pull this off during a holiday meal. The meat comes out fork tender. Pair it with your favorite pork-sides for a meal you won’t soon forget.

Pork Chops and String Beans

Pork turns out amazingly well in the slow cooker. No matter the cut, you can pretty much plan on having a great dinner on your table. These pork chops and string beans are no exception.

The only exception would be bacon. I wouldn’t try to “fry” bacon in the slow cooker haha!

Brown Sugar Ham

doesn’t this sound heavenly? See, I told you all cuts of pork turn out well in the slow cooker. This brown sugar ham is so juicy and good. The sugar sort of caramelizes on the ham is cooks and creates a syrupy sauce. Seriously, you have to try this winter crockpot treat.

Mac ‘n Cheese

You can’t have a winter meal compilation without macaroni and cheese. Did you know you can make this noodley, cheesy amazing dish in the slow cooker? Yep! It turns out great, too.

Wow, I sure am feeling hungry after all of that! These meals look terrific! It almost makes the cold weather not seem so bad. I mean, think about it, you get to come out of the snow and ice to a warm house with something amazing cooking in the crockpot. Sounds like a good deal to me!

I think, out of all of these recipes, the Ranch chicken and macaroni and cheese sound the best. The two actually complement each other. I have two crock pots. See where I’m going with this?

Which of these slow cooker dishes has caught your eye? I’d love to hear about the ones you make and how they turned out. Perhaps, you have some of your own winter slow cooker recipes that you use? Please, tell me about them in the comments!

Sharing recipes is sort of my thing and I LOVE making new foods for my family to try.

Now, to go get those crock pots out of the cupboard and fill them with something yummy. I see a lot of good food in my family’s future.

Happy winter crocking, ya’ll!

Garnier Whole Blends Maple Remedy Review

Garnier Whole Blends Maple Remedy Review

Recently, I was on a search for new shampoo and conditioner. Normally, after I use a certain brand for an extended period of time, my hair gets used to it, which creates a problem. Why? Because the products don’t work anymore.

I also like my shampoo and conditioner to smell natural. Who wants their hair smelling like a bunch of chemicals? Not me. Now, we all know that when you go totally all-natural haircare, it can get quite expensive. So, what are you to do?

Well, luckily products like Garnier Whole Blends Maple Remedy exist. I couldn’t be happier with this product. The scent is warm and sweet and the blend works wonders on locks that need a pick-me-up. Garnier has an entire line of shampoo and conditioner in their Whole Blends niche. Maple remedy is one of my favorites.

This amazing shampoo and conditioner duo contain things like castor oil and maple extracts. Both of these ingredients deeply nourish, reinforce, and repair hair. You’re left with flowing, luxurious locks.

Another thing I really appreciate about Garnier Whole Blends is that the product is paraben-free. No harmful chemicals! If you are vegan, this shampoo and conditioner are right up your alley because it is cruelty-free and does not use animal or animal by-products.

The best thing you can do for your hair is to purchase Garnier Whole Blends Maple Remedy as a shampoo and conditioner set. The two products complement one another. They are made to restore and condition your hair.

Are you someone who stresses your tresses by chemically processing it or using a lot of heat to style? You’ll be surprised by how Garnier Whole Blends can help tame, moisturize, and calm your strands.

This product line also comes with a leave-in-conditioner product. I recommend using this product if your hair is super dry and frizzy. You should use it up to 3 times a week, under those circumstances, if you have normal hair, use the leave-in conditioner at least once a week.

When it comes to lip care, I’m all about high-quality ingredients. The skin on your lips is thinner than the skin on other areas of your body, therefore, it absorbs lip balm more quickly. You want to make sure the lip balm you are using has non-toxic materials in it.

Can’t be without it!”

Jergens All-Purpose Face Cream Product Review

Jergens All-Purpose Face Cream Product Review


Do you ever look at pictures of your grandmother when she was a young woman and wonder how on earth she kept her skin looking so beautiful? Go ahead and find a few more photos of women from years ago and check out their complexions. Chances are, they’ll be gorgeous!

I recall my grandmother’s skin in photos that I’ve seen of her when she was a lass and, wow! What I wouldn’t give to have such a flawless complexion. So what was her secret?

Cold cream! Jergens All-Purpose Face Cream was one of a few popular cold cream brands back in the 1950s and 60s. I think it began even earlier than that. Women would slather the luxurious cream onto their faces in the evenings and take their makeup off with it. Some ladies would even sleep in the thick lather.

This cream is a gorgeous shade of light pink. It smells heavenly with a very classic aroma. Truthfully, it reminds me of my grandmother. It’s not unpleasant at all. You’ll love it! It is thick and ever so silky.

You’ll love that this cream is multi-purpose. It can be used for deep moisturization, taking off makeup, a cleanser, and wearing underneath makeup as a primer.

Jergens All-Purpose Face Cream leaves your skin feeling soft, supple, and smooth. Your complexion will be left glowing! When I use this face cream I honestly cannot keep my hands off my face. My skin always feels so lush and plump.

Many people claim that Jergens face cream helps to clear up acne, mild skin irritation, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also leaves your skin smelling sweet and fresh.

Putting the cream on is super easy, too. You simply lather it over your makeup, if you’re using it as a cleanser. It totally wipes the toughest cosmetics right off your face. You can even use it on your eyelids.

Taking the cream off is even easier. if you really want to go old-school, use tissues to wipe the cream away. Personally, I like to use a wet washcloth.


  • Multi-purpose
  • Leaves skin smooth, soft, and deeply hydrated
  • Primes skin for makeup application
  • Keeps skin feeling soft and dewy
  • Suitable for almost all skin types, even those that are very dry
  • Can be used to remove makeup

A Note From The Company…

“A tried-and-true skin essential, Jergens All-Purpose Face Cream acts as a cleanser, moisturizer, makeup remover, and can even be used as an overnight face mask. The rich texture helps to keep skin soft and supple and protect from dryness. Smooth it on your face and neck in the evening and remove with a tissue to gently lift away makeup and impurities from the day, or leave on overnight to deeply moisturize. It’s a multi-functional product that won’t take up a lot of space on your vanity or in your overnight bag”.

“Our Jergens Family believes in letting your beauty shine. As we have learned from our mothers, passed down from generation to generation, beauty is so much more than skin deep.

Here is a review from a verified Amazon user, “30 years ago, I met a woman who was probably mid-60’s and had the most beautiful skin I’d ever seen. While a lot of how we age is our genes, and sun exposure, etc., there are products that are most helpful for beautiful, smooth skin. I had, by that time, (in my late 20’s/early 30’s) spent a lot on products. She told me she used Jergens Cold Creme (now called face cream). So I got some, and 30 years later, I am constantly being complimented on or asked what I use on my skin. I SLATHER it on at night after I wash my face (and have gone from expensive cleansers to Dove soap when a dermatologist said it was the best thing to use — some use this for removing makeup, I don’t as I don’t feel clean enough, but as a moisturizer…WOW!). For the day, during the summer I use a lighter day moisturizer with sunscreen, in the winter I use a very thin layer of this and my makeup has a sunscreen. All I can say is that I’m tickled how my skin looks, and constantly get compliments. MAYBE it would have happened anyway, and I just saved myself a lot of money. But maybe it is part of the “secret” and I spent very little on fabulous results and wouldn’t trust my skin, or take a chance, on anything else. I used to work for a major cosmetic firm that is high end, so I understand what is out there from a consumer and retailer point of view”.

Here is a review from a verified Amazon user:

“Yum!!!!! What a difference! I had picked up a jar of ghee in the local big box discount grocery/retail store just to give it a try. It was good, but wasn’t organic, etc. So, I ordered this one. It’s SO smooth and even though it has a lesser taste, it tastes better. I use it to cook with and put it in my coffee. By the way, if you’re wanting to try it in your coffee to get some of those healthy fats and feel more satiated, the trick is to blend it, otherwise, it just tastes like you added oil. Yuk! I use an emersion blender but others use their countertop blenders – makes ALL the difference in the world. It’s now one of my favorite drinks!”

Why 4th & heart?

4th & Heart was Raquel Tavares, a woman who was inspired by her mother’s interest and passion for Ayurveda. This was a staple in her home when she was growing up. Raquel made her first batch of flavored ghee while experimenting in her kitchen during 2006.

This company has deep roots in the ghee butter industry. They only use the purest of ingredients to ensure each batch of ghee is pure, fresh, and creamy.


4th & Heart takes great pride in their products. You can always count on your ghee being made with high-quality ingredients and standards. The company has received a lot of wisdom from customers, team advisors, and the food community. With that being said, your opinion matters to them.

Nothing beats the buttery taste of this ghee butter, not even other brands. The flavor is light, smooth, and warm.
