Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff (with no canned soup)


Tuesdays and Thursdays are my slow cooker days. These are the days I depend on my favorite small appliance in my house, my slow cooker. If I don’t make a casserole for the firstĀ  person home to pop in the oven you can bet dinner is cooking in my slow cooker. My family loves mushrooms….

BBQ Chicken Tostadas


My family loves barbecue chicken so I am always trying to find new things to do with it. I had some leftover corn tortillas so BBQ Chicken Tostadas were a snap for dinner. Verdict: These were so simple to make and the family loved them! I let my chicken cook in the slow cooker all…

Creamy Ranch Slow Cooker Chicken


Notice a trend in my posts lately? Creamy. Slow Cooker, Warm. All the titles have fall like comfort words. Yes, we are getting (or have already started) back to school in many areas. This is my New Year’s Day when the kids head back to school. I always see the passage of time in school…

Ground Beef Packet Dinners in the Slow Cooker


If you have ever been camping you have probably had one of these or something similar for dinner. You can make them with chicken, pork chops, fish, etc… and the vegetables of your choice. I don’t know why I never thought of making them in the slow cooker before. These would be great on a…
