Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Now that December is here, I’m all about cozy food. You know, what I mean, right? Cozy food warms you up from the inside out. There’s nothing better than curling up on the couch on a freezing night with a warm bowl of soup. Chicken and dumplings is one of my favorite kinds of soup – it was always one of my favorite things for my mom to make me, and she tells me that her mom’s version was even better. I sure would give anything to have copies of my grandmother’s recipes!
