roasted tomatillo salsa beef {crockpot recipe}

Do you use tomatillos often?  I actually just really got into them a couple of years ago.  Before that I know I’ve had them in store bought salsa or when someone else cooked for me, but they weren’t something I bought very often.  If you […]

crockpot chicken noodle and kale soup

Good morning!  How was your weekend?  We had a pretty relaxed one up at the lake house.  Lots of beautiful sunshine.  This little guy loved running around in it.  Rocks in hand, of course. For October the weather has been beautiful.  Not typical, but I’ll […]

crockpot berry cobbler

One of my favorite things to watch is Hunter play and interact with his daddy.  He sure loves him.  One more recent thing that just makes my heart smile is seeing this. Jacob will sit down on the ground with a book, and Hunter walks […]

crockpot beef and broccoli

The sunshine is out, the air is crisp and all I want to do is go outside and rip out some blackberry vines!  Who am I? A girl with a plan.   On days like this the last thing I want to do is spent […]

two crockpot recipes: cafe rio chicken and chicken parmesan

Good morning!  How are you?  I hope well!  Things have been busy and fun around here.  Hunter’s moving more and more, although not crawling forward just yet.  We finally bought a gate for the stairs, now it just needs to be installed before he takes […]

crockpot salsa verde pork

Hi there!  We had a very merry Christmas in our house.  How about you? Hunter was definitely spoiled with lots of clothes and many new toys to play with. And a bouncy red bull to ride. I feel like there’s a toy overload upstairs now.  […]

Pineapple Meatballs (Crockpot)

Cooler weather calls for crockpot meals.  Warmer weather means grilling.  We’re kind of in a transition here, mixing warm sunny days in the upper 60s-70s with rain filling days in the 40s-50s.  On those warmer days all I want to do is BBQ and sit […]
