Slow Cooker Korean Beef Soft Tacos

slow cooker korean beef soft tacosI have one more good slow cooker recipe to share today this one is cuisine fusion.  Korean Beef with Soft Tacos.  The recipe was adapted slightly from a Family Fun magazine feature by Stephanie O’Dea – you may know her better as the lady who blogged about using her slow cooker for a whole year!   A good many of my slow cooker inspirations come from her site.

Slow Cooker Cranberry-Apple Pork Loin

I was a little apprehensive about serving this recipe to my family, because it has some strong flavors that they aren’t particularly keen on.  However, it went over really well, and the pork was so tender…it was kind of hard to slice!

Slow Cooker Cheesy Potato Chowder

One of the things I’ve noticed when going through my blog analytics is that you all love Slow Cooker recipes.  I had a few on the back burner that I have been wanting to make and they came out really well.  So, I’m going to share them with you!

Today’s is one with just a bit of peeling & chopping prep.  It makes a huge batch of soup that your family will want seconds of on a cold winter night.

Slow Cooker Curried Lentils with Pistachios

Sometimes I wish the month of December had more hours in the day than the other 11 .  I’m always looking for the easiest way to do…well everything, because there is just so little time to pack in all the things that need to get done before Christmas Day.  That includes using my slow cooker for suppers, which allows me to get a little bit fancy but still make things easy and efficient when it comes to using my time.  Adding garnishes like holiday nuts to a simple dish makes it festive and takes it up a notch for the Christmas season.

Steakhouse Chili Recipe & the Ultimate Chili Challenge

With football season around the corner, you may be interested in Riunite’s Ultimate Chili Challenge, a nationwide chili cook-off culminating in a Grand Prize trip to the Super Bowl next year. Home cooks around the country are spicing up their recipes and popping open bottles to compete for the best chili creation and Lambrusco pairing.

Loaded Potato Soup an eMeals Slow Cooker Classic Recipe

My family and friends are posting pictures on Facebook of snow and and cold temps, and while it’s just beginning to feel like Fall here (ha ha you all!), I know a lot of you are in the same boat (or maybe I should say the same igloo?!).

Well this is the season where our slow cookers get worked overtime, and we’ve got a delicious and easy recipe from eMeals to share with you:

Ultimate Party Meatballs

Our daughter loves meatballs.  It’s one of her favorite foods to eat.  Maybe because they’re a “mini” food, I don’t know but if meatballs are on the menu, she’s a happy girl.  Last May when her BFF graduated from high school, at her open house party there was a slow cooker full of meatballs.  Amber was in heaven, as a matter of fact she was talking about those meatballs all summer (yeah, she needs some more extra curricular activities apparently). 

Crockpot Chicken and Biscuits

Last month I shared with you about my inept knife skills and how as a Chicago Cutlery Mom Ambassador I wanted to, at the very least, not be scared to use large sharp knives in my kitchen.

Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve confronted that fear, and have been using my Chicago Cutlery DesignPro 8” Chef Knife in the kitchen when prepping our food.

Creamy Ranch Crockpot Turkey with Italian Cheese Mashed Potatoes

I think I’ve mentioned before that my family is kind of picky when it comes to food.  It’s because of this that I very rarely make a recipe as it’s lined out.

I’ve been stalking Pinterest lately because there are all sorts of recipes that have been pinned on there, that I’d never be able to find myself online.  And maybe it’s because a lot of them come from ‘mom blogs’ and if I can’t use the recipes as written at least they’re fairly easy to modify to fit the tastes of my family.
