Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken and Biscuits


This dish wasn’t quite what I meant it to be in the beginning. I put the chicken in the slow cooker and planned on being home about 8 pm from Lansing to make simple Baking Powder Biscuits to go with the meal. When at 9:30 pm we were still searching for book covers for the…

Top 3 Posts for August


Every month I try to highlight the top three to five posts from the previous month in case  you missed them. This month highlights are a salad, a pizza, and a slow cooker meal. We are definitely into the change of seasons. I think everyone is caught between summer and fall right now. I posted…

Eye of Round Beefy Stew


When I saw this tree I was shocked. When did this start to happen? It is far too soon! I know fall is on its way but I am pretending it is not happening this year. No fall means no winter, right? Okay, so I cannot stick my head in the sand at the beach…

Barbecue Chicken Tacos


I am always looking for new ways to combine the flavors my family loves into new things. I hit upon tacos the other night. Why can’t I stuff tacos with Korean beef or barbecue chicken? Buffalo chicken or pizza toppings? Of course I can! We are trying to conserve money this month and clean out…

Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie Soup


Breathe. Breathe. This is the mantra I keep repeating to myself all day. We are trying to keep things super simple right now. It seems that every year the schools, lessons, and classes try to pack more and more into May and the first week in June. Every class seems to have a recital or…

Angel Pork Chops


We spent the entire weekend in Milwaukee, Wisconsin at two Feis (rhymes with mesh). We headed home.  She earned a 2nd place trophy in Treble Reel, 3rd in Traditional Set (both days), and a 3rd in Slip Jig. She was pretty pleased with her first day of dancing not so much on her second day….

Happy Easter! Top 5 Recipes for March 2018


What a week it has been. I overestimated what being away and working 12 hour days would do to me. I thought for sure I could keep up my blog while away and have no problem. Boy, was I wrong. But, I am home now and having a wonderful day with my family. I hope…

Slow Cooker Salisbury Steaks II


I found the picture in the depths of my computer after thinking I lost it! Our weather is finally starting to temper a bit. We are still having some wide swinging days where it is 20s one day and 55 degrees the next. But, those 20 degree days are getting farther and farther apart. We…

Slow Cooker Zuppa Toscana II


This is a throwback Sunday recipe. I went back into my earlier blog posts and looked for something I hadn’t made in awhile to see how the recipe held up. Do I make it differently now, and have the ingredients changed for us? Like I encourage you to do I make these dishes according to…

Slow Cooker Swedish Meatballs


So these are not “authentic” Swedish meatballs.  But rather our simple version of them. These are amazing with homemade meatballs but sometimes you go with simple. Can’t find lingonberry jam to put on the side? You can use cranberry sauce or raspberry jam in a pinch. Verdict: We made this as an alternative to the…

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Chili


The lower the pantry cupboards and freezer gets the harder it is to come up with quick easy meals. I am scouring the cupboards and freezer trying to put things together that make sense. We have quite a few cans of beans, tomatoes, and corn left from the November canned goods sale at our local…

Teriyaki Slow Cooker Pork Loin


The picture above says Slow Cooker Chicken Teriyaki, it is not. It is a pork loin. I was thinking about how I could also use this on chicken lost my mind and wrote chicken on the picture. In the meantime I was talking and accidentally erased the original picture so I only have this copy…
