Book Review: Creative Slow-Cooker Meals

Do you have a slow-cooker? Do you have two? I love this recipe book by Cheryl Moeller entitled Creative Slow-Cooker Meals: Use Two Slow Cookers for Tasty and Easy Dinners by Harvest House Publishers. Let me tell you… the title is misleading… this cookbook is brimming with FAR more than just dinners! There are breakfast recipes, dessert recipes, beverage recipes and they all are cooked in the slow-cooker! Bread Pudding I’m a work-from-home, homeschooling mom of teenagers.

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Last week I shared a dear friend’s Crockpot Lasagna recipe. Today allow me to introduce you to a wonderful homemade chicken noodle soup courtesy of sweet friend Lori Lauth.

Crockpot Lasagna

Want a homecooked meal this week, but you’re short on time? My friend Michelle shared this recipe for crockpot lasagna some ten years ago and it’s still a family favorite to this day. Last night while cooking supper I multi-tasked and put together crockpot lasagna in less than 30 minutes. When it was ready, I simply put the crockpot insert into the fridge. This morning I started the crockpot and for lunch we dined on homemade lasagna. Crockpot Lasagna 1 {Read More}

Grandma’s Steak & Potatoes Crockpot Casserole

Some of my earliest memories are of eating Sunday lunch with my Grandparents at May’s Restaurant in Winfield, Alabama. I always chose the same thing from the buffet line: country fried steak, mashed potatoes, English peas, and a dinner roll. Years passed, May’s closed, and Grandma was given a steak and potato crockpot recipe that became her favorite. She loved making this casserole because she could adjust the amounts easily for her and Grandpa. If she told me once, she told me a {Read More}

Monday Madness

It starts on Sunday evening. My stomach get tight, my brain starts working overtime, and I get a little anxious. This has happened to me since Kindergarten – you can ask my mom! It’s not because I don’t love Sundays – I do! As a matter of fact they are my favorite day of the week. It’s Mondays I’m not so fond of. Everyone is a little more tired on Monday than usual even if bedtimes were kept rigidly. We’re {Read More}
