Have you ever read Stone Soup by Marcia Brown (1947)? It has been a favorite in our home. Recently we invited some friends to join us for an Almost Full Moon Snowshoe Outing and Stone Soup Dinner. Say that three times fast! [Read more…]
Right from the get-go I will say that weather can be a drag! Check out this thermometer!It’s hard to motivate for anything outside with this temp! I’m lucky that I can plan my outdoor activity around the sun and wait until the temperature rises a bit. Last week Chris shared her ideas for when the weather is less than pleasant. What do you do if it’s uncomfortable to go outside and exercise? [Read more…]
This chili recipe is quick to put together as well as tasty and filling. You can use canned ingredients if you’re short on time without affecting the flavor, but it’s more fun to start with dry beans. I like to make it early in the morning in winter and keep it warm on the wood stove. [Read more…]
Snowman skillet party dip is a really quick and fun way to add a touch of winter to your food. This snowman is the cutest and tastiest! I made this food for a New Year’s Eve party but it could be made for any winter party.
Stir-frying is a great way to get some extra veggies in your meals. It’s also a great way to use up left-overs in the fridge! This sauce is fantastic and adaptable for heat and sweetness. Whip up a batch and enjoy!
I am addicted to Thai food. Growing up in small town Maine I didn’t have the opportunity for Thai food very often. Now I live in a busier place, I have the opportunity a lot more. Andn with the Internet, I can access so many recipes. Add a crockpot and a freezer to the mix and I’m in heaven! This Crockpot Thai Peanut Chicken is scrumptious and touches on all your tastebuds! This is one of my favorites in the Crockpot Freezer Meal series. [Read more…]
Mmmmm! This is another of our favorites from the Sisters Know Best Crockpot Freezer Series. We like it so much because the sausage is actually turkey burger flavored like sausage so it’s healthy and hearty. Get the sausage seasoning recipe here. This Crockpot Sausage and Bean Supper recipe is easy to make, freezes well, and can feed a lot of people. We served it 2 different ways. I opted for it on rice and Bill put his in a wrap. Both were amazing! [Read more…]
My Crockpot Beans and Sausage meal does not use real sausage. I use turkey and season it like sausage. I wish I could take the credit for it but I can’t. I got it from food.com. The only thing I do different is leave out the fennel seed because I didn’t have any and I don’t care for it. I LOVE THIS.
I am new to substitutions and creating my own seasoning blends. Do you have any to share?
This slow cooker chicken sausage recipe is extremely healthy because it uses chicken sausage and peppers and onions. Very few ingredients but it produces a wonderful combination of flavors in your mouth. Bill said we definitely keep this one on the Crockpot Freezer Meal Series!
Bill and I had ours completely different and we both loved it! He had his on a sub roll with ketchup, mustard, relish (he’s the condiment king). I had mine with mustard and green tobasco to make it a little spicy.
Do you prefer sweet or spicy?

These Halloween Party Decorations will be super spooky and fun to make! First things first – do NOT eat the trees! There is a wire in them. (Gulp!) Everything else is edible. These are yummy and adorable Halloween centerpieces! The original post says they are not edible; however, it’s because of the black wire they used. Instead of black wire, I twisted my trees together and then used black electrical tape to tie it together. [Read more…]
These Crockpot Beef Tips & Gravy are part of our Crockpot Freezer Meal Series and they are delicious! I will say they had more of a beef stew consistency from cooking all day but I wouldn’t change them. The beefy broth was scrumptious to the point we wanted to drink it! LOL, maybe not that drastic but it was very good.
One alteration I made is adding pepper and onion at the end. This step was not in the original beef tip recipe. I’m glad I thought to do it though as it added to the taste and texture.
We have the best fun apple dessert recipe ever! Have you ever made something so adorable you couldn’t stop staring at it? These Fall Apple Rose Desserts are one of those for me! Not only are they beautiful but they are perfect for apple picking time and ways to use up apples!
Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken is one of those EASY Crockpot meals in the Sisters Know Best Crockpot Freezer Meal Series. I wish when I bought my ingredients I had purchased enough to make a bunch of these. I only made 2 batches of this one. 🙁 It’s healthy, quick, and flavorful! Not to mention versatile. The next time we have it, the family wants to try it as a burrito. I’m happy with it as is on rice… but I will try it with some black beans added in.
Thai food is one of my favorite discoveries! But when we order take out it’s easily $70! This meal was $10 and we ate it twice. PLUS it’s part of the Sisters Know Best Freezer Meal Series so I have another in my freezer for another time. The peanut butter gives it a creamy flavor and adding the vegetables makes this Slow Cooker Thai Pork with Peanut Sauce recipe a delicious well rounded meal!
Adding vegetables to stuffed shells is a genius idea! We have a delicious stuffed shell recipe but adding the vegetables increases the nutrients and the taste! And it’s a freezer meal that we are going to be adding to our Freezer Meal Series. That’s right! Make LOTS and freeze them for later. [Read more…]
