With chilly nights and breezy days definitely upon us, it’s the time of year that I begin dreaming about hearty comforting dinners. And so it was perfect timing when I received a shiny new Hamilton Beach Set ‘n Forget 6 Qt. Programmable Slow Cooker with Spoon/Lid to review! Moroccan spices are among my favorite flavor combinations and I blended cinnamon and cumin together for a fabulous Moroccan Chicken that cooks itself in the slow cooker. Just assemble in the morning, set the timer, and dinner is ready when you get home from a busy day! One of the best features of the Hamilton Beach Slow Cooker? There’s no need to worry about rushing home to turn off the slow cooker because it works on a timer and automatically changes it’s setting to WARM when the timer goes off! Dinner will be cooked, kept warm and ready for your family….whenever you get home! Best of all, Hamilton Beach has offered to do a giveaway for my readers!
