Cauliflower “Potato” Cakes and Pineapple Sweet Potato Cakes

Cauliflower “Potato” Cakes and Pineapple Sweet Potato Cakes

I’ve recently had a change of heart. Up until just a few months ago, I hated cauliflower. It looks too much like broccoli for my taste, so for years I’ve despised it based on appearance alone. But I had no idea what you could do with cauliflower in disguise! My first attempt at disguising cauliflower […]

Homemade Stock–Delicious and a Money Saver!

Homemade Stock–Delicious and a Money Saver!

The next time you go to throw out your meat bones or vegetable scraps, go ahead and slap yourself. Then throw them in a gallon freezer bag and save them! When the bag is full, dump it into a slow cooker and cook it all night on low. Or, bring it to a boil in […]

Happy 2nd day of Fall!

Happy 2nd day of Fall!

It’s officially my favorite season of the year. Living in the South, we don’t really have seasons other than Hot, Hotter, and Holy Baby Jesus It’s Hot. But during that time of the year when the rest of the country begins the marked progression between summer and winter, we like to pretend to do the […]

Slow Cooker Orange Chicken

Slow Cooker Orange Chicken

Some time after my son was born, I learned that it was much more efficient to prepare two meals at one time. So whenever possible (if the recipe will freeze well), I bag and freeze an extra dinner while prepping. It only adds a few minutes to the prepping process, and it keeps me constantly […]

Vegetable-Packed, Yummy Tomato Sauce!

Vegetable-Packed, Yummy Tomato Sauce!

I love to make my own tomato sauce for several reasons: It’s incredibly healthy. I know exactly what’s in it (and what’s not in it!) and that makes me feel really good about what I’m feeding my family. Even the pickiest eaters love spaghetti! They don’t have to know just how many vegetables the sauce […]

Bowtie Pasta Salad

Bowtie Pasta Salad

I love this pasta salad! It’s not my recipe, and I haven’t even edited it to make it my own because it was perfect just the way it was when I found it online. Unfortunately, I found it over a year ago when I was searching for a bowtie pasta recipe to serve at my […]

Twice Baked Potatoes

Twice Baked Potatoes

Coat 4 large potatoes with olive oil and bake them at 400 degrees until they have a bit of give, about 1 hour and 10 minutes. While the potatoes are baking, cook 4 pieces of bacon until crisp. Allow bacon to cool, then crumble it.   Thoroughly mix 2 cups of sour cream, 1 tbsp butter, 4 […]

Slow Cooker Sesame Chicken

Here’s another quick and easy slow cooker meal! Start by placing 2 frozen boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a greased slow cooker. Next, combine 1 cup honey, 1/2 cup soy sauce, 4 tbsp dried onion, 4 tbsp ketchup, 2 tbsp oil and 1 tsp garlic powder. Pour mixture over chicken. Add 1 cup of water […]

Slow Cooker Ribs

Slow Cooker Ribs

These are SO good (for the whole family!) and so easy! Prep time is about 5 minutes. Grease a crockpot and line the bottom with 2 cups chopped onion (I use the frozen, pre-chopped onions for faster prep). Place 3-4 pounds of boneless pork ribs on top of the onions. Sprinkle pork with ½ tsp […]
