Game Day Cheesy Sausage Dip

So, Sunday is the Big Game (I can’t believe that no one has trademarked “Big Game” yet, since it’s used about 10 million times a day in commercials this week!). Normally we have a small get together, but this year the game interferes with Downton Abbey, so we might have to come up with alternate […]

Irish Stew for the Slow Cooker

Alright, I promise this is the last St. Patrick’s Day post this year! Even though the temperatures are warm in South Texas, it’s still a little chilly in the rest of the country. So, while Irish Stew might be a bit much around here, I think most people still appreciate the gesture! Besides, if it’s […]

Sweet and Sour Chicken for the Slow Cooker

This is another recipe from my grandmother. Her recipe was actually something always served at potlucks as a sausage appetizer.  Her peachy sausages were pretty much always available at group functions. I’ve adapted her recipe for chicken and the slow cooker. I’ve made this quite a few times, and I think I’ve come up with […]

Red Beans and Rice for the Slow Cooker

I was sure that I had posted this recipe ages ago, but when I went looking, I couldn’t find it anywhere. I didn’t try red beans and rice until well after I was married. It’s not something we ate in our family, and trust me, you don’t want your new husband comparing your red beans […]

Chicken Taco Soup

This was the main part of our Father’s Day meal last night. It was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone in the family. My husband was saying that I had a week’s worth of posts last night because every part of dinner was so good! I love my husband and his complimenting ways I loved how easy […]

Cookbook Review: Fix-It and Forget-It

What week dedicated to slow cookers would be complete without a tribute to the mother of all slow cooker cookbooks?! The Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook has been my go to resource since I first bought my slow cooker as a newlywed back in 2002. (I don’t know what it is with me and the run […]

Sweet Potato Stew

I was thinking about what to make for dinner last night.  Something told me I should be making a Cinco de Mayo dish, but I hadn’t planned ahead and the thought of taking my three little jumping beans to the supermercado ended with me beating my head like a pinata. So, instead, I dug through […]

Pulled Pork Burrito, Enchilada Style

Shh… don’t tell anyone, but when I moved to San Antonio from Salt Lake City, one of the things I missed the most was Cafe Rio’s Pulled Pork Burrito, Enchilada Style.  I know, I could get deported from Texas for preferring Utah Mexican to Texas Mexican! There’s just something about a gigantic burrito filled with […]

Chocolate Fudge Crock Pot Cake

After reading Rhonda’s guest post, Sarah and I decided to dedicate this whole week to the crock pot. I loved the idea of using it on a more regular basis. A crock pot night is like a night off in the kitchen since the recipes usually go together easily, and I can put them together […]

Bacon Wrapped Chicken by Rhonda Steed

I’m so excited for our first guest post today! I met Rhonda while our paths briefly crossed in Nova Scotia. I had a chance to taste her donuts, which are pretty much the best I’ve ever had, so I thought that we would be great friends. But they moved. And we moved. And now we […]
