Slow Cooker Black Bean Butternut Squash Chili and a Giveaway!

Hope you all had a great weekend! Fall is definitely in the air here and one thing is for sure – the slow cooker sees a lot more action in the cooler weather.

Hamilton Beach was kind enough to send me their Set & Forget 6 Qt. Programmable Slow Cooker With Spoon/Lid to try out. All I can say is, I LOVE it! The programmable option is wonderful. The lid clips onto the base which makes it easy to carry and take with you. And, it comes with a thermometer probe. All great things!
