Slow Cooker Christmas Kitchen Sink Soup

Remember this from Instagram land? WELL, it’s now available at a website near you!  I call it the “Christmas Kitchen Sink Soup” because: a) It’s all Christmas-y with some serious cinnamon and nutmeg business. b) You can pretty much throw anything into this soup (except ornaments, duh) and still have your face melt off in […]
