My family and I love this stuffed shells recipe. When our extended family gets together, it’s often a request of theirs. And the BEST part is it makes 2 pans so I freeze one for later! These are definitely a favorite that you should try.

What better way than with this simple yet delicious and healthy Zucchini Soup Recipe?
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…]
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?
Do you like# burritos? You will love this #recipe and how much time it saves you! Beef and cheddar burritos made ahead and put in the freezer are the way to go! I made these when I made the other meals in the Crockpot Freezer Series and we had them for the first time last night. They are not a crockpot meal but they do go in the freezer. The trick is wrapping them in both the paper towel and aluminum. They were delicious and fresh!
Do you have zucchini coming out of your ears this summer? If you have a garden and it’s harvest time, then I’m sure the answer is yes!

Even though she freezes, bakes, and practically bathes in it, there is always MORE! For some reason, I can’t grow zucchini to save my life but luckily Emily can and we visited last week. Let the zucchini harvest games begin!
This recipe is a family favorite. My mom has made it for as long as I can remember. She uses a large casserole dish like this Corning Ware and it’s enough for the whole family.

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!
