Honey Hoisin Chicken Sandwiches in the Slow Cooker

There is one appliance in the kitchen that is often times under used…the Slow Cooker! I know I’m definitely guilty of it. Another thing I am guilty of is not using my Slow Cooker during the Summer months as much as I should, and really it’s probably a better appliance during the hot months than […]

Slow Cooker Apple Cider Beef Stew

Ah…Fall…I kind of have a love-hate relationship with it. I really love all the trees turning colors, the baking, cooking and enjoying comfort foods, but I really don’t like the fact that the weather is getting colder each day, which around here means lots and lots of snow. For now though, we are enjoying all […]

Slow Cooker Salt Crusted Pork Roast

Eureka! Sometimes I amaze myself, with Liz gone the past couple of days it’s been all up to me to get meals on the table for the family. So I decided to experiment with some seasonings that she doesn’t necessarily like, or at least the amount. I’ve been seeing some chefs on TV preparing their […]

Slow Cooker Rotisserie Chicken and Weekly Menu Plan

Yesterday was a busy day in the household, two boys working at the last minute on school projects (of course the projects are due today). Liz was working on cupcakes for her first eBook and then there was me trying to get a jump on the blogging for the week. Sounds like a busy day […]

3 Sausage Chili with Green Chiles

Every now and then Liz will give me full run of the kitchen to come up with a different version of a familiar dish. Which has at times made for some very interesting… shall I say concoctions of the past few months. Some that have been deemed worthy of sharing and some that made it to the […]
