Slow Cooker Brown Sugar Flank Steak

By |January 24th, 2017|All Recipes, Dinner, Gluten Free, Slow Cooker|

Flank steak! I love flank steak. IMHO it's the most underrated steak of them all. I find it's the easiest to cook if I'm in a hurry. No mess to clean, no opening windows in the dead of winter because my smoke alarm is going off, no letting the steak rest for 20 minutes at [...]

Pumpkin Soup

By |September 27th, 2016|All Recipes, Dietary Restrictions, Dinner, Gluten Free, Lunch, Slow Cooker, Vegan, Vegetarian|

Pumpkins, pumpkins, everywhere! I'm not the typical pumpkin fan. I'm not a huge fan of pumpkin pie or pumpkin spice lattes (gasp), but I do like my pumpkin savory. This Pumpkin Soup recipe is adapted from a recipe I found online. It's hearty, smooth, and creamy. It really hits the spot on a chilly fall [...]

Pumpkin Turkey Chili

Fall is almost here! All soup lovers rejoice! Fall is in 2 days, but I couldn't wait a day longer to start cooking chili. The weather has already decreased in temperature to a brisk 85 degrees in the afternoon after all :) I'm not a huge pumpkin fan. I don't go crazy over pumpkin spice [...]

Crockpot Chicken Cordon Bleu and Green Beans

By |April 6th, 2016|All Recipes, Slow Cooker|

I wanted a one pot meal that I could throw into the slow cooker yesterday. I am busy working and packing up our house for our move and the hubby had basketball last night, so something easy that involved protein and vegetables was the goal. One of my favorite dishes is chicken cordon bleu. It [...]

Overnight Maple Bacon Steel Cut Oats

When you're rushed in the morning it can be hard to have a hot healthy breakfast option. My solution? Put some oats in the slow cooker before you go to bed and in the morning you'll have a steaming hot, filling breakfast ready for you and your loved ones. Pre-chop some toppings the night before [...]

Short Ribs in Red Wine Sauce (Slow Cooker Recipe)

By |November 17th, 2015|All Recipes, Slow Cooker|

Short ribs are always so delicious and I rarely eat them. Usually if I do it is at a restaurant. I decided to try cooking them myself and in the slow cooker. Lately I've been cooking a lot in a slow cooker. I own two so I can alternate them if one isn't clean, but [...]

Slow Cooker Barbacoa

Yay for Chipotle! Chipotle is such a good option for a quick, fresh, on-the-go meal. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on your perspective) the Chipotle near my house is TERRIBLE. Slow service, always out of everything, long lines, etc, etc. It's so bad that I've vowed to never step foot in there again, so if I [...]

Beer Chili

By |October 21st, 2015|All Recipes, Large Groups, Party Food, Slow Cooker|

Can you really ever have too many chili recipes? The answer is no. I love beer chili. It makes an already hearty chili even heartier. This recipe is similar to my signature chili recipe, but with MORE BEER and MORE MEAT! My preferred beer of choice if I'm going to make a chili is an [...]

Vegan Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

My mother-in-law went on an international trip. As a thank you for a ride to the airport, she unloaded all of the leftover produce she had harvested from her garden and gave it to us in one glorious veggie heap. We're talking tomatoes on tomatoes on tomatoes and tons of green beans! Needless to say, [...]

Vegan Butternut Squash Soup

By |October 2nd, 2015|All Recipes, Gluten Free, Large Groups, Slow Cooker, Vegan, Vegetarian|

Butternut squash soup is the creamiest, most comforting food in my opinion. There are a ton of ways to use butternut squash in soup and I've never met a butternut squash soup I haven't liked. It can be sweet; it can be savory. It tastes good with some spice, or a kick of cumin. It's [...]
