Tis the season for parties!  As we head into December, the next two months or so are FULL of party opportunities!  Christmas Eve, New Years Eve, the Super Bowl… the possibilities are endless.

I don’t know about you, but our family tradition is on Christmas Eve we all go to my grandma’s house and we have a meal out of appetizers.  It’s the best!!  Then on New Years Eve, which is our daughter’s birthday, we have another appetizer dinner (usually her favorites).

MY LATEST RECIPES

Of course, in between those parties, there is a LOT of cooking and baking to be done for the holidays (and her birthday), so when it comes to the appetizers, I’m ALL about the easy recipes.  And especially, slow cooker ones!

Like most of you, usually when I’m looking for new recipes, I generally hit up Pinterest or work some Google magic.  But this recipe comes from my new favorite place to look, my friend Chrissy’s new cookbook, No-Prep Slow Cooker!  Chrissy blogs over at The Taylor House, and is such a warm, caring person.  I met her during a press trip last year, and I was thrilled when she asked me to check out her cookbook!

So many slow cooker recipes involve quite a bit of prep work (browning, sautéing, etc), and this book is full of recipes that are truly a busy cook’s dream… none of the extra work!

You can find her new book HERE, and I promise, you won’t regret buying it!  So many great recipes… from these sweet party meatballs, slow cooker jerk chicken, and even homemade bread.

I can’t wait to try more of Chrissy’s recipes, as I love meals where I don’t need to make an extra trip to the store.  We’ve all been there… it’s time to find a recipe for dinner, and all you can find are recipes that need some special, hard to find ingredient.  Bummer!  This book is FULL of recipes that use everyday ingredients… most of which you probably already have.

Pick up a copy of No-Prep Slow Cooker and don’t forget to get one for your friends (it is the holiday season after all!).
