Crockpot Pineapple BBQ Chicken Tenders

Crockpot Pineapple BBQ Chicken TendersWhenever we are crazy enough to ask our little purple princess what she wants for dinner we must prepare ourselves for the inevitable answer of “Chicken and SpongeBob”.  Okay, okay.  I know she’s really saying french fries but it seriously sounds like SpongeBob so I think that’s just what we will be calling our fries for the next 100 years.  Well, me being me and all and not wanting to go out to eat and spend $6 on a kiddie meal (that’s not really healthy anyway) I’m always trying to devise ways of making meals she will eat at home.  After more fails than wins I must say we finally have a home run!  Chicken tenders (no breading, no frying!!!) in the slow cooker.  Not only is the princess pleased but we are all loving dinner!

Crockpot Pork Chops with Creamy Herb Sauce

I was lucky growing up in that my family all ate dinner together almost every night.  I didn’t realize it at the time, but it really was a big deal.  It’s something that many families struggle with now days, mine included.  I always remember my favorite meal being a big ole crockpot of pork chops [...]

Crockpot Cheesy Chipotle Chicken Chili

What is it about the start of fall and the first few cool, crisp and rainy days that makes wrapping your hands around a nice hot bowl of steaming soup seem like the answer to every bad day you’ve ever had?!  As an obsessive committed Crock-Pot user I can honestly say that I use my [...]

Crockpot Chicken Thighs with Creamy Lemon Sauce

My new favorite chicken.  What?!  I know.  Just the other day I said this chicken was my favorite.  And it is.  But so is this.  Like “eat it every day for the rest of my life and never get tired of it” kind of favorite.  Crazy.  Obsessed.  That’s me.  But don’t judge until you’ve tried.  [...]

Crockpot Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup

I’m admittedly not a fan of chicken noodle soup.  I think I just have a notion that you should only have it when you are nursing a cold.  BUT this chicken noodle soup is the exception.  I could eat it everyday for lunch along with a nice toasty sandwich.  Juicy and flavorful chicken thighs, mushrooms, [...]
