  1. Julie I love it for comforting soups in the fall.

  2. The crockpot is seriously a working mom’s best friend – when I’m out of the house for 10+ hours a day and want to spend some time with my toddler, it’s so great to toss something in on my way out the door and have dinner ready when I get home!

  3. Hi Maria, this pulled BBQ chicken looks super yummy! I don’t pull chicken that much, mainly pork, but you make it look really easy so I’ll be giving it a try. Thanks a bunch!

  4. This sounds so easy and delicious. I’ve heard of shredding chicken in a stand mixer, but not using a hand mixer. That would make this so much easier. Thanks!

  5. We have a lot of chicken in the freezer I need to fix, this looks delicious.
