Nikki’s Slow Cooker Chicken Chili

My cousin Nikki is on a fun journey that includes parenting, baking (a lot), and freelance writing… Needless to say, she’s a busy gal and she gets things done when it comes to baking and cooking. I am grateful for those around me that are good in the kitchen, as I am NOT!  I can cook, but it just isn’t my thing.  My son even asks, “Who cooked this?” when something isn’t that good, because he already assumes it was me. :-/ Can’t say that I blame him, I just don’t have the mind or patience for cooking. Oh well, we each have our thing…

So, I leave it to the experts around me. I wanted to share Nikki’s latest recipe, she posts recipes every Wednesday on her blog, Super NoVa Mom.  For this weeks “What’s Cooking Wednesday?” she is sharing Slow Cooker Chicken Chili, check out

Thanks, Nikki! 🙂

She is unbelievably creative and I enjoy when she comes to visit and brings her Noms by Nikki!! This weeks recipe was Double Chocolate Pumpkin Cupcakes with Pumpkin Spice Buttercream icing! Unfortunately, because she lives in Northern VA, and I haven’t actually gotten to eat one of these beauties!

They are so pretty and look scrumptious!!!
