    What have you been cooking this winter? I'd love some new recipes. I have been using my Instant Pot and slow cooker a lot.

    Three of my favorite winter recipes for the crock pot are potato soup, chuck roast, and vegetable soup. They can cook on low all day.

    In the winters, I don't cook much. I have 1 easy recipe, but it is a cheat recipe. It comes in a bag. It is called "Darn Good Chili." You just have to add tomato paste and meat if you want meat in it. It already has the beans in it.
    Now I am craving clam chowder after seeing potato soup. I have a wicked recipe for it, but it is fattening! It even has bacon in it.....lol

    Not cooking but I do love a Winter salad to take to work.
    Red cabbage, carrot, onion, celery, raisins, walnuts, seeds with a dressing. Add some protein in the form of cheese (Brie is nice), smoked mackerel, chorizo or anything really.

    Chicken Soup with carrots and either rice or noodles.
    Vegetable Beef and Barley soup.
    Chili.
    Ham and Bean Soup
    Pasty - usually hamburger, potato, and onion. (sometimes carrot) Sometimes I do it with beef cubes and sausage, potato, and onion. Gravy for a topping. I cheat with store bought pie crusts when I will be short on time.
    Oven roasted veggies, rice, and some type of fish or skinless boneless chicken breast.
    Pasta with ragu (not the jar).
    Hallushki with sausage or kielbasi.
    Pierogi
    Slow Roasted chicken with veggies.

    I probably haven't had that since I was a kid. It sounds good too. I am going to have to quit looking at this thread. It keeps making me hungry for stuff I don't have....lol I am going to shop today though. :)

    lentils with sweet potatoes. yum! just google spicy lentil stew ...and then add sweet potatoes, cause well, why not! And then today started thinking about beets, not sure why. But then googled some pretty dished with roasted beets with feta cheese and herbs. Oh. my. gosh. I love learning recipes through the internet. This is how I waste lots of time!

    I forgot about the lentil stew I made last year. It had sweet potatoes. I'll have to find the recipe I had. It was really good.

    This is the spice I have. It's pretty good but I don't know how it compares to authentic spices from Morocco.

    Ok, the above recipe looks super yummy so I will share the one I found on line that has been my go to this year. I don't follow the blogger, or know anything about them - just found the recipe one night while looking.

    That one looks good too. I don't really follow bloggers so I get my recipes from a variety of sources. If the blogger is too wordy (if I have to scroll forever to even get to the recipe) I will just skip it. I like the pictures of their cooking process but I don't need to know every darn detail so it just puts me off.
