One of my absolute favorite fast food meals in the world is a bowl from Chipotle. When you're on the go, or in a pinch, nothing can quite satisfy that hunger like a bowl of delicious Mexican food. I use the same toppings everytime, too: grilled peppers and onions, pico, cheese, sour cream and guacamole.… Continue reading Copycat Chipotle Carnitas Bowl
There are certain recipes that you attribute to people in your life. My coworkers and I are known for specific things that we always bring to parties because they're so beloved. Emily's corn dip is the best I've ever had. I can eat a dozen of Halee's ham pinwheels and not feel guilty about it.… Continue reading Crockpot Christmas Candy
Are you a ham or turkey kind of person for the holidays? I'm a turkey kind of gal. Actually, I could care less what the entree is; my favorite part of holiday meals are the sides. Give me a plate full of stuffing and mashed potatoes any day over sliced turkey or ham. My family… Continue reading Slow Cooker Pulled Ham
One of the reasons you rarely see beef recipes on my blog is because they're so gosh darn hard to photograph. I've got pictures upon pictures of meatloaf and meatball recipes that I can't use because they look, well, horrible. With beef having such a dark brown exterior, it does no good for pictures even… Continue reading Texas Pot Roast
Y'all. It's suffocating outside. The humidity levels are hovering in the 70's. Add that with a temperature of 85 degrees, and it feels more like 95 degrees...and it's only 10 a.m. The unbearable heat will continue throughout the day until we get a quick break tonight when a cold front moves in. I feel so… Continue reading Crockpot Beer Cheese Chicken
It's been a while since I've whipped out my slow cooker. I tend to use it frequently in the winter months. When things start warming up, you're more likely to find me making salads, sandwiches and skillet meals. That's not to say I shove my slow cooker to the back shelf and forget about it… Continue reading Slow Cooker Greek Chicken
Being from Texas, I know barbecue. I mean, really understand it. I've grown up on brisket dinners and pulled pork cookouts. Sweet and spicy thick barbecue sauces are ingrained in my nature. Mesquite smoke-flavored chicken lives on my tastebuds. I've branched outside of good ol' Texas barbecue many times before. I've had Memphis-dry rubbed ribs… Continue reading Pulled Chicken with White BBQ Sauce
It's now been a year since Rob gifted me this laptop. I've probably posted 100 recipes since then. It's hard to believe that 2018 is coming to a close! I don't know about y'all, but my family always has a specific meal for New Year's Day. It's a tradition and it's supposed to bring you… Continue reading Shrimp and Greens Stew
Use frozen meatballs to make this dinner in a breeze. Slowcooked to delicious goodness and topped with Parmesan, this Swedish meatball soup is a good one for cold winter nights.
"Cacciatore" means "hunter" in Italian. This Italian slow cooker version takes it to another level. Add all the veggies and olives you want!
