Ok. It’s not really a homemade bug dope. It’s more like a DIY salve or DIY balm. It’s super easy to make, it’s natural, and it works! [Read more…]
One of my favorite desserts growing up was mom’s homemade strawberry shortcake. Anytime we had biscuits with dinner there was a good chance strawberry shortcake was to follow. Mmmm! Childhood goodies. [Read more…]
I’m writing this crockpot recipe as the pork roast simmers in the crockpot and I can tell you, my mouth is watering. The smell is AMAZING! This easy 4 ingredient crockpot meal is so simple but creates such an intense flavor, people will think you worked on it all day. The best part is you can freeze it! [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.
