Between the kids being home for the summer and just the plain ‘ole heat factor I have rekindled love for our slow cooker. Super easy to put all of the ingredients in during the morning and get on with your day. (Just remember to turn it on AND plug it in. I have done that too many times.) Plus it doesn’t heat up the kitchen at all.
Slow-cooked lasagna from Tastes Better From Scratch. While it tasted good the noodles were overcooked. Maybe it was me, but the few slow-cooked noodle recipes I have made have all had over cooked noodles. S0 don’t see slow cooked noodle recipes on our menu anymore.
I have also cooked these recipes: (all from my Pinterest boards)
Slow Cooker Cheeseburger Soup, Slow Cooker Garlic Butter and Chicken and Vegetables, One Pot Crock Pot Sausage Dinner, Crock Pot Baked Potatoes, amongst other recipes from my Pinterest Slow Cooker board.
Then there were these beans, inspired by Mandy from Biblical Homemaking blog. I just put a bay leaf and a generous amount of salt, low boil for a few hours. Beans, so healthy, so cheap. They are mainly pinto beans with a few black beans I had sitting around. These didn’t go with any recipe but our kids, especially The Chief, LOVE beans.
Green Chili Posole from Around the World in Eighty Days with pre-packaged cornbread. This was super YUMMY. Then again most food is better with green chili. Can anyway say green chili cheeseburgers!?! One of my favorite foods.
Our two daughters and I made these Thick and Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies…SOOO very good. Recipe from The Kitchen Magpie.
