If you’re in the same boat as me, I feel ya. And that’s why I’m bringing you Thanksgiving recipes these past couple weeks. So that you have one less thing to think about. Last week I shared my Slow Cooker Pumpkin Bread Pudding, and in the theme of slow cookery, today’s stuffing recipe is a Crockpot gem too.Ahhhh stuffing. Are you noticing a theme here? Dessert made with bread. Side made with bread. Yes, I love bread. When I was younger, I never really liked stuffing. Probably because I was hardcore vegetarian back then and even something made with chicken broth was off limits. It…

By now I hope you’ve realized I have an affinity for labeling my recipes with a song of choice. It keeps things interesting over here lol. Anywhooo, Thanksgiving. Amiright?! I can’t believe it’s here either. Pretty sure I just rang in 2018 like yesterday. Okay, maybe 3 days ago tops. This year in particular flew by for me I think mostly because of the post concussive syndrome recovery and also I ain’t gettin any younger. So I guess that’s life now. Every year speeds up a little faster than the one before. That’s what my Dad tells me anyway. He’s a pretty trustworthy dude so I guess I believe him.But you know…

Slow Cooker Chipotle Corn Chowder

Slow Cooker Chipotle Corn Chowder takes less than 15 minutes to prepare and packs in a bit of heat for a whole lot of flavor. Ok I know corn chowder is like a summer thing but roll with me for a minute.

Who wants to hot soup in the summer? I don’t care how fresh the corn is. You will rarely find me eating soup in the heat. Chowder in the fall though is something I can wrap my head around and sink my spoon into.

I figured this corn chowder would be the perfect beginning of fall soup because I’m still seeing the last of summer fresh corn at the farmer’s market and abundant in the grocery store. Also I LOOOOVE how easy this recipe is. The only work you have to do is chop some potatoes, shuck some corn, turn on your slow cooker and let it do the rest of…

Vegan Slow Cooker Pumpkin Curry

A warm and hearty vegan slow cooker pumpkin curry that’s sure to satisfy on a cold fall or winter night. I don’t hate the day when I decide it’s time to bring to the slow cooker out of the storage closet and into the kitchen. It’s usually some day in October when the temperatures start to drop and the heaters start to kick on in our apartment. The leaves have already started to fall and outside is a sea of red, yellow and orange.

But the million dollar question is what is the worthy recipe that will kick off slow cooker season in our household. This year it was curry.I’m a big fan of curry. I’ve been eating it since the first Thai restaurant opened up in my hometown when I was in high school. And I ate loads of it when I traveled to Thailand a few years back. And…

Slow Cooker Vegetarian Guinness Irish Stew

Ready for St. Patrick’s Day? You will be with this hearty Slow Cooker Vegetarian Guinness Irish Stew, perfect for St. Paddy’s or any cold winter night.So it’s the middle of March and the East coast just got hit with a massive snow storm. Which means that you shouldn’t dismiss soups and stews just yet. There’s still a need for warm, hearty comfort foods and if anyone knows warm and hearty, it’s the Irish. I visited Ireland a couple summers ago and you can read about my travels to Dublin, Aran Islands and Galway, Killarney and Dingle. I’ve never felt m ore at peace and at home in any of my travels than I did in Ireland, which makes sense considering my Irish roots.

I have such fond memories of St. Patrick’s Day growing up. Going to watch the parade and then heading over to my Grandma’s house for corned beef and cabbage, Irish…

Slow Cooker Vegan Italian Wedding Soup + $700 Amazon Giveaway!

Slow Cooker Vegan Italian Wedding Soup is a delicious and satisfying plant-based alternative to this classic comfort food. Plus, it’s super easy to make in the slow cooker.Steve and I have gotten into a nice pattern these past few weeks – it’s called slow cooker Sundays. Every Sunday morning/afternoon, we throw ingredients in the slow cooker, move on with our day and then have dinner ready for us in the evening as well as plenty of leftovers for the week ahead. As much as I enjoy cooking, I certainly don’t enjoy cooking everyday. That’s why I love batch cooking – making large quantities of meals to have leftovers for lunch or dinner for the week or to freeze for another time when we’re in a dinner pinch.

I’m really looking forward to spring-like temperatures around the corner but I’m going to shed a tear when it comes time to bid adieu…
