Crockpot Fall Harvest Chili

Date posted: September 15, 2014

Crockpot Fall Harvest Chili I declare!  It is now officially fall and therefore time for all things pumpkin!  Or almost anyway.  It’s actually my tradition to treat myself to my first pumpkin spice latte of the season on my birthday (did they come out super early or what this year?!) and since that’s not for a few more weeks, here I wait.  But not to worry, I’m not really missing out because I’ve been busy trying out all kinds of other pumpkin based recipes.  How about you?  Are you on the pumpkin crazy train?  I hope you will join me.  I’m sure my chili made with pumpkin will sound a little crazy but it’s actually so good!  It is just like a big ‘ole bowl of autumn for you to wrap your chilly hands around!

Crockpot Honey Garlic Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Anybody here NOT ever had lettuce wraps?  It started out as a real treat from PF Chang’s and now it seems like everybody has them on the menu.  I’m pretty sure I’ve never tried them anywhere else except for trying to make them at home.  I’ve done several versions that were pretty much okay, but [...]

Crockpot Honey BBQ Baked Beans

Since we are all friends here I must admit something to you.  My best baked beans recipe has historically been nothing more than a doctored up can of Bush’s beans heated up in my mini crock (deep dark secrets here!).  I mean, living in one of the best BBQ cities in the world has left [...]

Sneaky Veggie Breakfast Bites

Summer came and despite my best intentioned plans to keep solid bedtimes and healthy breakfasts and math practice sessions we slid into a late bedtime, sugary cereal, marathon TV session kind of summer.  And you know what I say to that?  Oh well!  Gotta have some fun and relaxation too!  We didn’t go on any [...]
