Comfort Food Slow Cooker Give-Away

Posted on November 12, 2014 by Amanda Holliday | 178 Comments

While it's still technically fall, it feels like winter in much of the country. And when it's cold outside, we crave comfort foods that cook low and slow in the slow cooker all day. The slow cooker really is a parent's best friend—it does all the work while you're at the office or running errands. Our slow cooker lives on our counter top throughout the fall and winter.

In addition to the convenience, the versitility of a slow cooker makes it a great tool for Real Food baby and toddler meals. You may already know about one of our favorite crock pot recipes—Pear Applesauce . But what about Herbed Pumpkin and Rice, or Spiced Carrots and Raisins? Or cook up a batch of Beef Stew for the whole family (you can puree baby's portion if needed). Check out our Pinterest board for more great slow cooker recipe ideas. 

In the spirit of the holidays and these slow cooker recipes making us feel all warm and fuzzy inside, we're hosting a giveaway, complete with everything you need to make slow cooker meals for the whole family.

    From Farm to Pouch | Fall Edition

    Posted on September 30, 2014 by Amanda Holliday | 1 Comment

    Even though in parts of the country it still feels like summer, we are getting into the fall spirit. If Costco already has Christmas decorations out, we can at least start thinking pumpkin patches, apple picking and comforting fall recipes, right?

    One of the best things about the changing seasons is that it means our farmers market will be stocked with all sorts of new, in-season produce.
