One taquito. Two taquito. Three taquito. Score! How do you spell taquito anyway?  I could’ve sworn it was tacquito (with a ‘c’), but Google says otherwise.  Weird. Just when you think you know how to spell something.  My name is still spelled J-A-Y-M-E, right?  Just checking. However they’re spelled, taquitos are yummy.  They’re one of Read more


Tender Pork Chops – Made In A Slow Cooker!

I’ve been loving my slow cooker all the more these days.  As a working mom, it’s been so easy for me to stick a meal into a slow cooker and let it simmer for most of the day.  But on my stay-at-home mom days, it’s also been great.  I’m not restricted to meals that need Read more


Slow Cooker Ground Beef Stew!

It’s almost soup season!  Well, for those that thing there is such a thing as soup season.  I, personally, don’t think there is a soup season – I think everyday is part of soup season.  I eat it year round, but I’m willing to concede to those who think that while you CAN eat soup Read more


Easy Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches!

This recipe was born out of necessity and a little trial-and-error. See, I had bought a roast when it was on sale “Buy 1, Get 1 Free”, but I didn’t know what I wanted to do with it.  It was summertime and I wasn’t really feeling pot roast (as delicious as it is), so when Read more


Crazy Good Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff

OH MY GOSH!  Please make this Beef Stroganoff!  Please! Please! Please!  For the love of all that is good and right in your kitchen, make this recipe!  It’s THAT good.  Now, I’ve made some good Beef Stroganoffs before, but none nearly as good as this.  And this doesn’t have any ‘Cream of’ soups or ‘packets’ Read more


How to Make Homemade Chicken Bone Broth

Disclosure: Contains affiliate links. Full disclosure policy here. I’ve already talked about how I like to make a whole roasted chicken.  It’s just delicious!  But I like to do it for more than just the meat.  I also like it because I use the chicken bones to make homemade chicken broth!  You can even do this Read more


Slow Cooker Minestrone Soup

Minestrone is a classic Italian soup – at least what we consider an Italian soup here in America.  I don’t often have it and that’s a shame!  I often think about ordering it when I go to Olive Garden, but I love their salad so much that I just always go that route.  Occasionally, my Read more

Disclosure: Contains affiliate link. I’ve made a few different soups with my Instant Pot (I have this one).  There have been some definite misses.  I’ll keep working on those.  But there has also been some hits.  This started off somewhere in the middle – it was just okay.  But a few tweaks later and I love Read more


Slow Cooker Chili (Freezer Friendly!)

Ahhh…chili.  Such fond memories of it. Football season is drawing to a close.  High school football is done.  College football is done.  The NFL is in playoffs.  I don’t know why I associate football and chili together.  I have images in my head of big football parties and a whole vat of chili on the Read more
