The weather outside is getting chilly PCH fans! Soon enough the last of the leaves will have fallen and we’ll be snuggled up inside with some blankets and maybe even a toasty fire in the fireplace. Even though I am a summer weather girl at heart, I do enjoy this time of year for one reason in particular – cold weather recipes! Nothing tastes better after being outside on a chilly day than some warm and hearty food that’ll keep you feeling toasty from the inside out!
Let me tell you fans, there are so many delicious recipes that are just perfect for this time of year. When you think of cold weather recipes, what is the first thing to pop into your mind? If you thought of soups, stews and delicious chili then you are on the right track! In fact, I love cold weather recipes so much I wanted to share a few of them with you today!
Break Out The Slow Cooker
Yep, I said it fans. That magical kitchen must-have that creates delicious meals with minimal effort. It’s the perfect way to cook up something delicious without spending hours in the kitchen or using every pot and pan you own. In fact, I love our slow cooker so much that my husband and I make it a point to do a slow cooker Sunday whenever he is not working! We’ve come up with so many great dishes in the past and we’ve even found some new ones using the one and only PCHSearch&Win .
In the past few weeks we’ve tried a chili recipe and a soup recipe, but my all-time favorite was this delicious pulled chicken recipe we found! It was so simple using just chicken, BBQ sauce and some spices! A few hours in the slow cooker and my house was smelling amazing.
The finished product came out absolutely delicious. We served it up with some coleslaw and French fries for one warm and satisfying dinner!
Gravy Makes Everything Delicious
If you aren’t a huge fan of slow cookers but want that warm and hearty meal there are still some amazing recipes you can make in a skillet right on your stove top. A few weeks ago, I came home on a chilly day after a long day of work and wanted something warm and comforting for dinner. Clearly, I didn’t have enough time for a slow cooker recipe (unless I wanted to eat dinner at midnight!) so I had to come up with another plan. I took a look in my pantry to see what ingredients I had and found 2 jars of Homestyle chicken gravy.
I immediately logged on to PCHSearch&Win and started looking for “cold weather recipes using chicken gravy” and found a TON of results. Now fans, as someone who likes to cook, I tend to try and put my own twist on the recipes I find. After a few minutes of looking I decided on this tasty sounding chicken skillet with Homestyle gravy, egg noodles and vegetables. The recipe didn’t call for much and I had most of the ingredients I needed. The best part was it was done in just about 30 minutes! Can’t beat that for a fast dinner.
Hungry yet PCH fans? If these photos and recipes didn’t make your mouth water then it’s time to start searching for more recipes just like these! Trust me, it won’t be hard to find something completely satisfying and delicious (especially if you use PCHSearch&Win to help you along!)
