While the rest of the country has had abnormally warm winter weather the last couple of weeks (I’m looking at you NYC & Chicago!) my lovely sunny San Diego has been drowning in rain for the last two months and much cooler than usual.

The one good thing about this “Freaky Friday” weather we’ve been having is busting out the winter slow cooker recipes to warm up! I’ve been making everything from Spicy Chicken Enchilada Soup to Thai Peanut Meatballs to Slow Cooker Pot Roast to help get us through these brutally cold winter days in San Diego. (And by brutally cold, I mean lows in the 40s and highs in the 50s! 😉

You know when you meet someone and you instantly want to be best friends with that person?! That’s exactly how I felt when I met my friend Laura! She’s a fellow blogger at Distillerista.com and the owner of the only craft destination distillery in California, You & Yours Distilling Co. in downtown San Diego. Needless to say, she’s a boozy boss lady, which I love! In addition to dominating in the distillery world, she’s also the sweetest person ever and so much fun!

Laura will be appearing as a guest on my web series “29 Minute Meals” next Wednesday, so be sure to subscribe on YouTube to watch the episode & see what she’s mixing up!
