Fall Gluten Free Recipe Round-up

I’m from Chicago and when the weather starts to get that chill to the air and I can finally pull out sweaters, flannel, and my boots, my heart gets really happy. I start to crave those comfort foods in the fall: biscuits and gravy, apple cider donuts, breads, and soups. For some people, those foods […]

Tortellini Soup Recipe

I found this recipe on Facebook as a slow cooker recipe and the first time I made it I forgot it was slow cooker so I decided to give it a try in just a pot on the stove. It worked great! The kids even ate the soup with no complaints… both times I’ve made […]

Slow Cooker Shredded BBQ Chicken Recipe

I’ve been menu planning for the past 3 weeks and so far has worked out pretty well. I think there’s only been 2 or 3 nights that I haven’t stuck to the plan out of three weeks! One of the meals on my list was shredded BBQ chicken so that I could use it again […]

Slow Cooker Beer Chili Recipe

Yay! It’s fall again. It’s MY favorite time of the year. We can finally cool off from those extremely hot days of summer but it’s not yet so cold that I don’t want to be outside. This past weekend we went camping at Boy Scout camp for their annual Cub Scout Family Camp. We had […]

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe

Here is recipe 4 from my Cinco de Mayo party! Chicken Tortilla Soup! This was my first time ever using a jalapeno pepper. I made sure to wear gloves so that I didn’t accidentally get pepper juice on me. I can imagine doing that, I’m such a klutz! This recipe also came from the cookbook that I’m reviewing: Triple […]

Slow Cooker Tex Mex Spinach Dip

While this recipe does not include avocado, I made it for my party since it was supposed to be Cinco de Mayo inspired. I have the cookbook to review: Triple Slow Cooker Entertaining: 100 Plus Recipes and 30 Party Plans and this recipe came out of it. Once I’ve shared the three recipes I made […]

Paleo Slow Cooker Dijon Ham

Note: I received a cookbook to review, but no further compensation. All opinions are my own. There may be affiliate links located in this post.  As I continue my quest to figure out what’s best for my family, as I’ve said, I’ve looked into Paleo a bit. I was just sent the book  The Paleo […]

Slow Cooker Chicken Caesar Sandwiches on Whole Wheat Slider Buns with Fleischmann’s Yeast

So the big game is this Sunday. I have a simple recipe that you can make that’s delicious! The best part? It’s homemade! Before I get there, I want to talk a little about how I got to this point. I haven’t bought bread in probably 3 months or longer. It’s not because I gave […]

Slow Cooker Strawberry Cake Recipe and Review

I was recently sent the book Slow Cooker Desserts to try out. I immediately leafed through the book and found quite a few recipes I wanted to try. I figured I’d try an easier recipe first since I had the ingredients on hand and didn’t need to go shopping to try something. Some of the […]

Pumpkin Chili Slow Cooker #Recipe

Last week I decided to make Chili on Friday. I threw all my ingredients into the slow cooker and was making my oatmeal pumpkin bars. I still had a half a can of pumpkin left, so I decided to throw it into the chili. My biggest problem with my chili was that I was missing […]

Game Day Chili #Recipe

You can tell I’m really behind. The Super Bowl was Feb 5 and I’m just now posting this recipe. Sigh… better late than never, right? We actually didn’t even make it until the next weekend when we had friends over for a game night. (We ended up going to a friend’s birthday party/Super Bowl party […]

Slow Cooker Lasagna #Recipe

I wanted to try lasagna in the slow cooker but didn’t know which recipe to try. My friend Amanda told me to try this one from Betty Crocker. I found that making it in the slow cooker takes just as much work as making it in the oven and it finished WAY faster than it […]

Slow Cooker Hawaiian Pork Chops #Recipe #Fail

I got this recipe from my friend Erika on Facebook. My husband thinks this would taste better if I made my pork chops in the pan and just made the sauce on the side. My pork chops dried out and had no flavor. I was really looking forward to this being a flavorful dish. You […]
