This stuffed pepper recipe for the #crockpot is different than the one I normally make. I like that you use cauliflower in place of rice. And I really like you can make a bunch of them for freezer meals and pop in the crockpot! You don’t even have to defrost them first!
Who doesn’t love spaghetti!?! It’s the American food of choice and having this easy crockpot spaghetti sauce on hand in the freezer makes our fa[mily happy! I’m sure it will make yours happy too!
When Bill went to Ireland, he knew I was making the crockpot freezer menu. I asked him which meal he wanted me to take out and cook for his return. Utlimate Beef Stroganoff Crockpot is the one he picked. Great choice Bill! I love that man. He knows I’m not a fan of mushrooms so he told me to make it without. Yeeha!
We’ve all been seeing the buzz on Pinterest and Facebook about Crockpot freezer meals and how you can make a bunch of them all at once to save time and money. The organization of it is what set me (Chris) up for the challenge. Bill is off to Ireland this month so I have extra time on my hands. Upfront, these are the points I learned from my easy crockpot freezer meals:
Before you discount this Zucchini Pizza Crust recipe as too “green” or healthy, it’s a fantastic way to enjoy pizza without the heavy feeling. AND a great way to use up some zucchini. If you have a garden or know someone who does, then you know what happens when you grow zucchini or summer squash! [Read more…]
Ever get super excited to invite friends for lunch and then be stumped on what to feed them? Here’s the answer: CRUSTLESS QUICHE! Mine is made without crust, as I try to limit wheat. I used the last of my asparagus and one lonely leek and some chicken. It was a crowd pleaser.
Ever roasted cauliflower? Ever roasted it and then made soup from it? I hadn’t, but let me tell you: I love the result! This is an easy and healthy vegetarian recipe! Plus an added benefit is how incredible the spices smell as the soup heats. The longest part is the roasting so it might be a good fall or winter recipe too but in the summer also ….
It’s So Worth The Wait!!
Here’s what to do:
Hands down, this easy potato salad recipe is the best I’ve ever had… EVER. And I’m proud to say it was passed down from my mom. She’s one amazing cook and I’m glad I paid attention for this recipe. My family loves how creamy and flavorful it is and I love that it’s a healthy potato salad. I usually make a large amount for a party but below is a potato salad recipe for a few people that serves 4-5. [Read more…]
I LOVE corn chowder and every winter I crave it. I realize the winter is over, the snow is melting but I made this recipe a month ago and am just now getting around to sharing it with all of you. It’s so easy to make! I’ve heard chowders are tricky because of curdling the milk and you need to watch it closely but this easy crockpot corn chowder recipe changed my life! I’m looking forward to experimenting with other chowders over the summer like seafood chowder. Mmmm mmm! If you have any favorite recipes, we would love to hear about them! Please, pop on over to our Facebook page and share! [Read more…]
If you are looking for a healthy vegetarian soup for a main course, look no more! I made this for my boyfriend’s vegetarian sister and we all loved it! I actually doubled the batch! To be completely honest, my boyfriend added a little spice to his (meat) but his sister enjoyed it as is and so did I. I’m sure you will too! [Read more…]
I used to work at a ski resort and they had delicious vegetarian lasagna. Since then I’ve searched for a replacement recipe. While this vegetarian lasagna recipe is a red sauce and that one was a white sauce, I really like this option! My bf isn’t a fan of the white sauce version… and I’m not sure if it’s healthy anyway but this version is! You can use whatever vegetables you would like but the following is what I did. After it was cooked, I added garlic salt to mine. I just prefer a little more zap to my flavors. Everyone else loved it as is. I’m sure you will too! [Read more…]

Pair this with our yummy kale salad and you’ve got amazing flavor and a healthy meal! [Read more…]
It’s the dead of winter here in Maine. Yup, everything “garden-y” is dead. Kind of depressing unless you buy fun green veggies and make amazing salads that encourage thoughts of warmer times to come. Enter in Kale Salad!
Years ago a friend had given me some kale from her garden. Oh, goody I thought. Then I was embarrassed not to know how to eat it — cook it? chop it? steam it? add to soups? Absolutely all of those things can be done with kale! I haven’t forgotten the kale chips that are all the rage now, but it’s not something I have done — yet.
This version of kale salad is best enjoyed the following day. The kale will soften some and the flavors will meld into a deliciousness that is worth the wait. Trust me! [Read more…]
As Bill from the Wayward Wanderers travel blog pointed out, it’s not very often people are going to search for “How To Make a Cheese Ball Igloo” especially for cream cheese and black olive penguins, but it is a needed tutorial.
We decided to do this for game night at our house and it was a big hit! It just so happened we had a snowstorm the same day so the wintery theme of this project tied together perfect! This was one of my favorite projects to make and I hope you enjoy it also! [Read more…]
One of the best parts of Thanksgiving and Christmas are the leftover turkey recipes! My favorite of several is my easy Turky Pot Pie recipe. It’s wholesome ingredients add comfort to the cold months ahead… if it lasts that long. In my house, it doesn’t stand a chance!
