Supper With Nana Blog & Slow Cooker Recipes

Hello Yall,
I hope everyone in Austin and the heat wave states are staying cool.
Turning on our oven to cook supper is definitely a dreaded time in our day. So to save some stress by heating our kitchen up I want to share the links to these slow cooker recipes.
Supper With Nana is the sister blog to Southern Made In The Shade. I had so many requests for recipes that it was time to start a recipe blog. I am not as talented as most people in multitasking so my limit is two blogs.

Please help me grow my followers by joining Supper With Nana! I really appreciate all the support you all give me. I follow back so be sure and leave your blog address.
On Supper With Nana you will find different reviews, shared recipes, and giveaways.

Happy eating,
Nana
