I first made this dish last fall on the stove-top but quickly decided it should be one that needed to adapted for the slow cooker. In this house we pretty much adore (inhale?) foods that can be served over rice. So any of those kinds of foods that can be made in the slow cooker quickly become MY favorites because I can start dinner in the morning along with programming the rice cooker and my job is done before breakfast.
Remember that homemade BBQ sauce we made the other day? Now we are gonna make stuff with it! Let’s start off super simple with this pulled chicken. I know it’s really too easy to call it a recipe except that I want to call to your attention how much better it will be when you […]
I know I’ve already shared a soup recipe with you this week but I was too excited about this one to hold on to it any longer. I do love my soups this time of year. For one thing they are the perfect warm you to your soul food on these endlessly cold days. For […]
Just think about how impressed everyone will be when you say that you make your own BBQ sauce! It’s really pretty simple and perfectly suited to be made in the slow cooker.

Who says eating lighter/healthier has to be boring? Of course we all like to indulge from time to time. Take this version of potato soup for instance. But you know what? This skinny version is just as delicious and you don’t even have to feel guilty about eating it! Huge tender chunks of potato in […]
I did it! Even though the temperatures have been in the super freezing range, I have been dragging myself out of bed at an insanely early hour and out into the cold to go to the gym. Four days in a row I might add. Helps to have a great friend waiting there to meet […]
Remind me again why I choose to live in the freezing cold Midwest? I do love it here but I could do without the wind chills right about now and I could especially do without the pipes that keep freezing in my bathroom. In order to cope I have become a soup making machine. Lots […]
So I’ve had this butternut squash sitting on my counter for more than just a couple days and I finally decided that since I was never going to get around to cubing it all up and roasting it for a side dish that I really needed to find an easier way to use it up. […]
If I eat these with Skinny Mashed Potatoes it qualifies them as healthy right? Okay, fine. But nonetheless they are still the perfect pair. These chicken meatballs are so tender and flavorful and the cream gravy with asiago cheese is amazing. Worth a little splurge even at this time of the year!
Don’t forget to register for my thank you giveaway!! You could win a knife and cutting board set! This chicken was MADE for the slow cooker. How is it I’ve never heard of it before? As soon I saw what was in it I knew I had to try it! I mean tomatoes, tomatillos, adobo […]
