We absolutely love using our slow cooker and make a hearty stew or thick, rich soup. We do this at least twice a week year round.  In fact, our crockpot gets such a workout that our kids even come up with their own slow cooker recipes. This Slow Cooker Winter Stew Recipe is one of our new favorites. It is hearty, spicy and tastes amazing.

    That really looks good. I use the slow cooker a lot in the winter, but I have never made anything using shrimp. Shrimp is so high priced here I save it for special occasions but this stew does look like it might work well for a potluck and would be imprressive.
