{Nourish} Crockpot Giveaway with Summer Recipes

Friends, I have admittedly been MIA. Life has been nutty so I hunkered down and prioritized my work commitments.  As much as I love this blog and all of you, I had to stay true to my new, healthier self, and not over do it. This is self-care in action and it helps, I can tell you! That being said, I have missed this site and I am eager to get back into the swing of things and to re-connect with all of you. As a thank you for your patience, I am psyched to giveaway this fancy new Crockpot. Truth be told, I have never been much of a crockpot cooker but I appreciate it’s beauty as a time saving trick. Again, self-care means making your life easier and cutting out the stress, so it’s fitting.

Forget those soups and stews from the winter for now, here are some recipe ideas that you can make in your slow-cooker right now. And if you don’t have one of your own, enter the giveaway at the end of the blog!  Continue reading “{Nourish} Crockpot Giveaway with Summer Recipes”
