Slow Cooker Honey Sesame Chicken

I have seen varieties of sesame honey chicken circulating Pinterest, but the picture from Family Fresh Meals really caught my eye. I adapted their recipe, using two large one pound frozen chicken breasts, extra honey, extra cornstarch, and voiding the red pepper flakes. After slowly cooking for hours, our house smelled somewhat like a sweet […]

Slow Cooker Garlic and Brown Sugar Chicken

I am always one to try out new slow cooker recipes. Really, what could be easier than putting your dinner in a crockpot, leaving it alone for several hours, and coming back to a delicious full-cooked meal? There is not much extra prep for this recipe (which was adapted from Six Sisters’ Stuff). The sauce needs […]

Slow Cooker Vegetable Beef Chili

This chili is a play on one of my favorites: hearty & healthy turkey chili. Other than adding extra peppers and using some different beans, the base is basically the same. Ground beef is featured this time around in lieu of the ground turkey. (Both meats are easily interchangeable for this recipe).   5.0 from […]

Slow Cooker Cream Cheese Chicken Chili

I love trying out new slow cooker recipes. When I saw the cream cheese chicken chili on Plain Chicken and then again on Six Sisters’ Stuff, I couldn’t wait to try it. I have a very large slow cooker, so when I make recipes in it, I often double the ingredients to make a huge […]

Slow Cooker Pork Chop Pulled Pork

My husband loves pulled pork, but every time I make it in the slow cooker I end up with a week’s worth of leftovers. Did you know that you can actually scale down the recipe by using pork chops instead of a huge pork loin? It may not seem possible, but I promise you: it […]

Olive Garden Pasta e Fagioli Soup (Copycat recipe)

When I saw this recipe on Food.com, I just knew I had to try it. My parents and I are big fans of the soup and salad special at Olive Garden (although they go more frequently than I; my husband prefers Red Lobster when given the option). For the price, there’s not much beating an […]

Fresh Slow Cooker Corn Chowder

Here is a wonderful recipe for Slow Cooker Corn Chowder. Not much could taste better than amplifying the taste of this chunky soup by using FRESH corn kernels straight off the cob. Use half and half instead of whole milk, good quality bacon, and you will have the richest, freshest, most satisfying corn chowder out […]

Slow Cooker Hearty & Healthy Turkey Chili

Hearty & Healthy Turkey Chili It may be late April, but here in western New York we are experiencing a lovely phenomenon known as a nor’easter. It’s hard to believe we had sixty and seventy degree temperatures last week, as today is a chilly thirty-two degrees out. Speaking of chilly, nothing warms me up better […]

Slow Cooker Seasoned Roasted Chicken & Vegetables

     Congratulations to Jenn of Eat Cake for Dinner. She is the winner of the Things Cooks Love giveaway.      Today I am changing things up a bit and posting a slow cooker recipe. All you need to make this is a roasted chicken and whatever vegetables you have on hand. The chicken is […]

Slow Cooker Corn Chowder

Slow Cooker Corn Chowder If you are a fan of vegetables and like thickened soups, then I have a great recipe for you. This corn chowder is chock full of beautiful red potatoes, sweet pepper, and two types of corn (creamed and kernels). Freshly crisped bacon and a hint of brown sugar compliment each other […]
