When they are just turning brown, add the remainder of the ingredients. Stir until the cheese is melted. Pour into a 9x13 pan and bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes.

My fastest to make:
2 pounds ground beef
1/2 box of instant rice
1 can of mushrooms
1/2 small onion, chopped
2 gravy packets
Water for the rice and gravy.

Brown the meat with the mushrooms and the onions. Stir the gravy mixes and water for them together, pour over meat. Pour in rice and stir in water. Let sit for 10 minutes. You can add bean or corn to this, it can be rolled up in tortillas! Freezes really well.

Sounds strange but my family loves it.

Cook a small pasta. Drain. Add two cans of Fat Free Lentil Soup into the pot, a jar of spagetti sauce, and some seasonings like garlic and pepper. Then mix back in the pasta. Mix and cook until the rest of the ingredients are warmed up. Serve with mozzerella cheese.

I don't know how we came up with this, but it works. The family loves it, it's easy to make and affordable too.

Thanks for the giveaway!

I just posted this recipe today. It's delicous!

Cream of Chicken and Wild Rice Soup
Serves 8

1/2 cup butter
1 finely chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup sliced carrots
1/2 pound fresh sliced mushrooms (I leave these out, because if my daughter spotted a mushroom, she'd refuse to eat the soup.)
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
6 cups chicken broth
2 cups cooked wild rice
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cooked and cubed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 cup slivered almonds (optional)
3 tablespoons dry sherry
2 cups half-and-half

Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the onion, celery and carrots and saute for 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and saute for 2 more minutes. Then add the flour and stir well to create a roux. Gradually pour in the chicken broth, stirring constantly, until all has been added. Bring just to a boil, reduce heat to low and let simmer.

Next, add the rice, chicken, salt, curry powder, mustard powder, parsley, ground black pepper, almonds and sherry. Allow to heat through, then pour in the half-and-half. Let simmer for 1 to 2 hours. Be sure not to boil the soup, or your roux will break.

**Note: The longer this soup sits, the thicker it gets. When you reheat it, you'll need to add some water or chicken broth to thin it out slightly.

I like to rub a roast with chili seasoning, put it in the slow cooker and cover with BBQ sauce. I let it cook all day, then I pull the beef into shreds and serve pulled-beef sandwiches with a little cheese on top. So yummy, and so easy!

I have totally made that pot roast and it is insanely good! One of my favorite things to do it melt white or dark chocolate morsels with my kids and have dipping parties- they decide what to dip but they have to eat it! Not really a recipe but a fun way to "cook" with the kids!

Ginny said...

I am terrible cook, but my husband makes a great beef stew in the crockpot. I'd love this prize, it would really help!

Let's see, I know he adds beef, onion, carrots, celery, potato, beef broth & those onion soup packets. That really adds so much. Not sure how it actually cooks, if you cook I'm sure you already know, lol.

My favorite recipe is opening the frozen food box & popping in the microwave, LOL.

My Dad's Chicken Noodle Soup:

about 2-3 lbs. chicken--I usually use breasts, but the soup is more flavorful if you use dark meat.
4-6 chicken bouillion cubes
small (8 oz)can of tomato sauce
1/2 bag of baby carrots
4 celery stalks
12 oz bag of reames frozen noodles
garlic salt and pepper to taste

Boil chicken until cooked--do not overcook. Take chicken out and add bouillion cubes to the water it cooked in--this is your soup base. Let cubes dissolve, add tomato sauce.
Add garlic salt and pepper liberally to taste.
Let broth boil for a while--a couple of hours on low heat is best.
About 1-2 hrs. before serving, add veggies and turn up heat.
About 45 minutes before serving, add noodles. Bring to full boil as per directions on noodle package.

This is VERY yummy topped with green onions. For leftovers, I generally add water and more garlic salt as the noodles absorb a lot of the broth.

My best and easiest slow cooker recipe is

Pour all the cans of soup over the roast. Cook all day in slow cooker. I start it on high and switch to low a few hours later.

It is so yummy and easy.

One of my favorite recipes:
Turkey tenderloins browned on each side. Pour about 1/2 jar of salsa over the tenderloins (or more if you want!) cover and simmer about 10 min until tenderloins are cooked. Sprinkle cheddar, or mozzarella cheese) over top of tenderloins and cover abt 5 min (until cheese is melted). Serve over rice. I also put in a can of corn last night with the salsa and that was really good too.

Becca said...

I love taco soup in the crockpot, we just put a packet of taco seasoning with a can (or 2) each of corn, diced tomatoes, and either pinto or ranch style beans, and cook on low 4-6 hours. We serve with either rice or cornbread! Thanks!

I like BBQ chicken potatoes. I cook the chicken in the crockpot all day, adding 2 bottles of BBQ sauce, some water and sugar to taste. I cook it for 8-10 hours (probably could cook less, but it is the amount of time I am gone from home). I shred the chicken, which falls apart anyway. Prepare baked potates just as I always do. Add butter, sour cream, etc to the baked potatoes, top it off with the BBQ chicken. Viola! A perfect meal. :)

It's really long so here is a link-

It's Italian bread. So yummy and easy! I eat organically so I bake a lot of our bread cause it's hard to find organic bread or even just bread without HFCS!

This book would be a gift for a friend of mine that just moved to her first apartment and doesn't know how to cook much and has a crockpot. She is going to grad school and working so she is busy so this would be great for her!

This is a very simple, tasty recipe.

Crocked Beef

2 lbs Stew Meat Cubed
1 Envelope Dry Lipton Onion Mix
1 Stick Butter or Margarine
1 lb Wide Egg Noodles

Place Beef in crockpot. Add envelope of onion soup mix, then place stick of butter on top.

Cook on High for 4-5 hrs or Low 6-8hrs. You do NOT need to add any other liquids or even stir this until you are ready to serve. The beef creates it's own juices that make the dish a lot like a stroganoff.

Served with a big mug of tomato soup. Yes, it needs to be a mug. Just not the same in a bowl.

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Easy to make & even better to eat. Great use for those bananas that are starting to get old that no one wants to eat.

Cream 1 Stick Margarine and 1 Cup Sugar add 2 eggs and blend until creamy. Next stir in 1 tsp baking soda, 1 pinch salt, 1 pinch cinnamon, 1 pinch nutmeg. When everything is well blended add 1 cup banana and 2 cups flour.

Stir in Chocolate Chips (milk chocolate or semi-sweet) I usually use about 1 cup but you can use more or less. Bake at 325 degrees for approximately 1 hour or until inserted toothpick comes clean. Makes 1 loaf. YUUUUMMMM!

Thanks so much for the AWE-some Give-oh-Way!

1-2 packages onion soup mix

Place roast in crockpot.
Mix soup, soup mix, and water, then pour over the roast.

Simple and YUM.

rlgrady said...

Sloppy Joe

2 lbs ground beef, browned and drained

Then I add ketchup, vinegar and brown sugar to taste. Just add enough to be the consistency you like.

Serve on a hamburger bun.

Occasionally I add a sauteed green pepper, or onion.

I like this recipe because it doesn't have to be exact measurements, and you can add whatever you like for variations.

Boston butt pork roast (whatever will fit in your crock pot ~4 lbs)

couple dashes liquid smoke.

cover and cook for 8 hrs on low. Best to put the crock pot in your garage with the door closed or your house will smell like bbq for ever!

Remove pork from crock pot and shred with 2 forks, discarding any fat. Mix with bbq sauce (jarred or homemade) and serve on buns as a bbq sandwich, or on baked potatoes!

Pulled-Pork Sandwiches

1 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
4-5 cloves garlic, chopped
3/4 tsp dried sage
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp pepper
3-5 lb boneless pork shoulder
hamburger buns or hoagie rolls
barbeque sauce (Sweet Baby Ray's is our favorite!!!)
coleslaw (optional)

In the crock-pot, mix ketchup, brown sugar, garlic, sage, oregano, salt and pepper. Trim fat from pork and cut in half. Add meat to crock-pot and turn to coat all sides with ketchup mixture. Cover and cook on low until very, very tender. About 8 hours on low; 6 hours on high. Transfer pork to a large bowl. Using two forks, pull meat apart until shredded. Pour juices from crock-pot over pork to moisten. Spoon onto buns or rolls. Add barbeque sauce and/or coleslaw if you're from the South. So delicious.

Thanks, I'd love to win this book!

Anita said...

Maybe not my best recipe, but one we use the most. Originally used for pizza crust, it's now what we used for focaccia, bread sticks, wrap and flat breads, stromboli, and so on.

1 1/2 c hot water
1/4 c sugar
1 scant tb yeast (or one pk)

let this sit until bubbly.

1 egg
1 t oil

Mix in:
5 c flour
tsp salt
Optional: any flavoring you'd like to use: garlic, onion, red pepper flakes, rosemary, etc.

knead until elastic. Place in a greased bowl and let rise as little or as long as you like. We often punch this down a couple of times before using.

shape into whatever form you use.
for flatbreads, we bake at 500 degrees for a few minutes.
For pizza, we top and bake at 500 degrees until done (time depends on how thick you like your crust)
Breadsticks are best slightly undercooked.
Use your imagination. This is a very easy, forgiving recipe.

Richelle said...

I love using my crockpot! One of my favorites is making lasagna. Brown the hamburger, mix in cr. of chicken soup, jar of spaghetti sauce, cheddar cheese, cottage cheese. I usually use bow tie pasta. Just press it in on top. Yum!

I have always loved doing the cheese dip in a crock pot. Take 1 block of velveeta cheese, 1 jar of salsa, 1lb cooked ground chuck (or you can use sausage) and combine it in the crock pot. Once it is all melted you can dip chips or crackers in it. It is very very good and easy. Thanks for the great giveaway.

1/2 medium onion, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
garlic powder to taste
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed golden mushroom soup
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed Cheddar cheese soup

2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Combine the ground beef and onion in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally until beef is no longer pink, and the onion is translucent. Drain off excess grease, and season with salt, pepper and garlic powder.
Return to the heat, and stir in the golden mushroom and cheese soups until well blended. Heat through, and remove from stove. Transfer the mixture to a 9x13 inch baking dish. Cover the ground beef mixture with a layer of frozen French fries.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven. When the fries are golden brown, remove the casserole from the oven, and sprinkle cheese over the top. Return to the oven, and bake just until cheese has melted.

Thanks so much!

Cola Basted Ham


Place ham in roasting pan. Cover ham with pineapple. Stick cloves in pineapple. Pour cola over ham...saving some for basting during the roasting.

Place in 350 degree oven. Roast for an hour or until top of ham in nicely browned. The smell will be fabulous. Be sure to continue basting the ham with the Cola. It will be so moist and yummy!

My families favorite is bbq pork sandwiches. Just cook your pork in your crock pot w/ about 1/4 cup water and about 1/2 cup chopped onion cook all day and by dinner time it just falls apart. If there is a lot of juice then strain it and mix in your favorite bbq sause and serve on rolls or buns. My family likes coleslaw with it as well. Thanks.

One of my favorite easy recipes is for Mud Pie.

You can just use a premade chocolate crust or use a recipe for a chocolate wafer crust.

Then you take 2 of the small containers of Haagen Dazs coffee ice cream or your favorite flavor. Soften the ice cream slightly so you can spread it in the crust and then put it in the freezer until the ice cream hardens.

Then spread on a thick layer of fudge sauce such as Smuckers or Ghiradelli and place back in the freezer.

When ready to serve cut it into pieces and serve with whipped cream. It is so yummy. I want to make some now.

I just love my crockpot and can't wait to try some of these recipes. I make an awesome pot roast in mine, using venison. I brown the roast first in a little butter. Place roast in the crockpot then add a large can of crushed tomatoes, 1 pkg of Lipton Onion soup mix, salt, pepper and 6 beef boullion cubes. Then pour 3 cups of water over the top. Cook on hign for a half hour then add potatoes and carrots. Then I like to cook on low for 6 hours...the meat gets much more tender!

My favorite recipe is a crockpot recipe actually! You put a roast in the crockpot, sprinkle an envelope of French Onion Soup mix over the roast and then spread a can of Cream of Mushroom Soup on top of that. Put the lid on crockpot and turn on Low for 6-8 hours. The meat is so tender and the gravy is fabulous. I take the roast out and if the gravy is too runny, I add in some cornstarch to thicken it up. I love to use the leftovers the next day to make stroganoff by adding sour cream to the gravy and chopping up the meat. I pour that over a big bowl of cooked egg noodles! Yummo! Thanks so much for doing this for us!

Taco Pie Recipe

Taco Pie

1 Lb ground beef
1 C rice
1 C Shredded Cheddar
1 C corn
1 Pkt Taco Seasoning

**Cook the rice separately according to directions
** Brown Beef and drain. Mix in taco seasoning

In a large casserole pan layer items:

Beef, then corn, then rice, and top with shredded cheddar. Bake at 350 for approx 1/2 hr.

This comes out like a Sheppard's pie and can be cut into squares. It can be served alone or accompanied by a salad. We like to serve it with fresh baked bread.

I am sure there are many variations. We like these:

* Try Ground turkey or chicken for a lower fat alternative
* Try Shredded chicken, possibly from leftovers
* Mashed potatoes can be used instead of rice
* Montery Jack or Pepper Jack s=can be used instead of cheddar
* Top the casserole with Cornbread mix before baking

Hope you enjoy this frugal recipe. It's one of our favorites!

Favorite slow cooker recipe is the easiest and what my mom always made. One beef roast, 1 pkg Lipton Onion Soup Mix, 2 beef bullion cubes, a few potatoes cubed, bag of baby carrots, and about 1/2 cup water. Cool on low for about 8 hours. Super simple and always yummy.


Aleta said...

New England Boiled Dinner

1 nice piece of corned beef

Place Corned Beef in crockpot...add chopped carrots,potatoes,onions and rutabaga. Cover with water. I place wedges of cabbage on top of all this in the last 2 hours of cooking. Crockpots do varie in temperture...mine cooks this delicious meal in about 6 hours. Don't forget a stick of butter and some vinegar for the cabbage!

Smells great while cooking too!

Meredith said...

My mom and I just rediscovered the wonders of our crock pot and would love to have this book!

One of my favorite recipes is a quick recipe for crepes that I got in a family and consumer science class in 7th grade.

•1 cup flour
•1/4 teaspoon salt
•2 eggs
•2 Tablespoons sugar
•1 cup milk
•2 teaspoons oil

Place flour, sugar, and salt in mixing bowl. Add milk, eggs and oil.
Beat ingredients with wire whisk until smooth. Batter will be thin.

Heat large skillet. Spray with cooking oil. Pour desired amount of batter into skillet, tilting the skillet to make a large thin pancake shape. Cook until lightly browned on both sides, turning once.

Repeat until out of batter.

Fill with desired fillings (i.e. fruit, powdered sugar, chocolate, chicken strips, etc.)

Tip: Crepes can be cooked in advance and stored in refrigerator for up to 2 days before filling and serving. Place sheets of wax paper between crepes and store in plastic bag until ready to use.

I have these crepes every once in awhile and they are delicious! My parents love putting peanut butter on them.

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 can (10 3/4 oz) Campbell’s Cream of Chicken Soup
1/4 cup Mayonnaise
2 tblspn honey
1 tblspn spicy brown mustard

Cook Rice according to directions on box/bag. Meanwhile, in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat, in hot butter, cook chicken 10 minutes, turning at half-way point or until browned on both sides. Remove; set aside.

In same skillet, combine soup, mayonnaise honey and mustard. Heat to boiling. Return chicken to skillet. Reduce heat to low. COVER; cook 5 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink, stirring occasionally.

yipeee.. .delicious and easy. Enjoy!

Julianne said...

Hey, I just tried that roast about a month ago and it was delicious.

My husband loves my potatoes au gratin. I cut 5-6 potatoes in thin slices, leave the skins on. I dice up 1/2 an onion. Put both of these in a greased 13X9 pan (or a crock pot if I have all day to cook it).

On the stove top I melt 1/4 cup butter. I then add 1/4 cup flour. I add 2 cups of milk and stir constantly until thick like gravy. I add 1 tsp of salt and a 1/2 tsp pepper. I pour in 8 oz of shredded colby jack cheese and stir until well blended.

Take the mixture and pour over potatoes and onions and mix together. I cover the pan and bake for 1 hour at 350 and then uncover and continue to cook for another 10 minutes or so until the potatoes are golden on top and tender with a fork. I often add diced or sliced ham to this as well for a main dish. For my family, I have to double this recipe.

My family loves Chicken Poppy Seed Casserole.
We cook a LARGE casserole, so you may have to cut it down if you have a small family.

One family size package of chicken, we usually use thighs. Boil and cut into bite size pieces.
Mix chicken with family size can of cream of chicken soup, 8 oz container of sour cream and a drained can of cut green beans.
Crush 3 sleeves of Ritz (or off brand) crackers and mix with 1 stick melted butter and 2 tablespoons of poppy seeds.
Spread 1/2 of cracker mix on the bottom of a large casserole dish. (9x12 or larger) Layer the chicken mixture and then top with remaining crackers.

Cover with tinfoil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake for 10 mintutes.

YOUR recipe is actually my best one! I make that crock pot recipe all the time.

Here is one I came up with myself that my kids and hubby LOVE:

1 jar red marninara
1 1/2 cups chopped musrooms
2 cups chopped eggplant
1/2 lb of browned sausage
1 lb of browned ground beef
1 medium onion, diced

Cook all ingrdients on low in slow cooker until eggplant and onions are cooked - on low 4 - 6 hours depending on your slow cooker.

Boil 1 box of pasta. Place cooked pasta in pan. Cover with sauce from slow cooker until covered well. cover pasta and sauce with mozzerella cheese. Cook in oven at about 200 degrees to melt cheese for about 10 minutes. Ready to serve! Leftover sauce can be served on the side.

Kieliszeks said...

I know this sounds to simple but we really like it and its very easy.
Put a pork roast in the crockpot and put a bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce which is sweet baby rays for us. Leave it on low 8 hours and then shred it and place on buns or rolls and enjoy.

tatertot374 said...

Thank you for having this. I use the same roast recipe! Too funny. I also like bbq pulled pork. Just put a pork loin, 2 cans of root beer and cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Drain the rootbeer and pull the pork and add favorite bbq sauce. So good and sweet! Love it.
Thank you!

Carol said...

For the holidays this is a favorite!
1 pkg fresh cranberries
1 cup sugar
1 orange including rind
Crush cranberries in food processor. Add orange that has been cut into fourths and process. Then add sugar. Pulse until mixed all together.

Pam's Pride said...

My family's favorite recipe would have to be steak-umm pizza.
You need an already made pizza crust, 7 cooked steak-umms, and mozzarella cheese. Place the cooked steak-umms on the pizza crust to cover then top with the mozzarella cheese and bake at 350 until the cheese is golden brown. Then I like to top mine with ranch dressing, fresh lettuce and tomatoes!

Katrina said...

Oh, My favorite right now is pumpkin cookies! I stole it from Picky Palate...

1 Spice Cake Mix 18.25 oz
14 oz can Libby’s Pumkin
½ Cup sanding sugar
1 bag Hershey’s Pumpkin Spice Kisses

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a stand or electric mixer beat the cake mix and pumpkin until well combined, about 45 seconds. With a cookie scoop, scoop dough and roll top half in sanding sugar (dough is sticky) then place onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet. Bake for 11-13 minutes, or until cooked through. Quickly transfer to a cooling rack and immediately press kisses into the center of each cookie. I immediately place cooling rack into the fridge for 15 minutes so the kisses don’t melt. I tried both ways and it melts down if just left at room temperature. Enjoy!

Boy, I really can't cook. (Hence, needing this cookbook!) So I would have to say my best recipe is a fried egg sandwich. Fry up an egg - overeasy - add some cheese on top (and bacon/sausage if you want) place it on buttered toast and dig in.

I don't know if this counts, but I hope so. We cover a block of cream cheese (can be fat-free, doesn't matter) with a jar of raspberry chipotle marinade. You can usually find it in your grocery store near the bbq sauces....dip your favorite (hard) cracker in it and yum-a-licious!!!! Hope this counts!!!! It's my favorite this week!

What a brilliant idea! You're doing a great giveaway, but you'll end up getting enough recipes for a book! Mine is for Green Chile Soup.

One "box" chicken broth (I use low sodium)

3-4 chicken breasts, chopped into bite-sized pieces and sauteed.

1/4-1/2 onion chopped and sauteed

2-4 med russet (or any) potatoes, peeled and chopped, again in bite-sized pieces.

1-2 cans of diced green chile peppers (whatever you like)

1/2 t cumin

salt and pepper to taste.

Throw all this in a pot and simmer until the potatoes are done. I made this on the stove tonight--it'll be better tomorrow. But it's best in the crock pot. Serve with jalapeno cheddar bread and buttah or any crusty bread and salad.

AmyG said...

Here is something I fixed one night, when we were low on money & cash. It was very tasty. That night, I fixed it on the stove, but have since done it in the crockpot & it was lovely.

I call it:

Easy Spicy, Bean Soup!

4 cans of Great Northern Beans

1 can of Dark Red Kidney Beans

1 can of Light Red Kidney Beans

1 can of Rotel Diced Tomatoes

1 medium onion, diced

4 cups of water

2 beef bouillon cubes

Pepper to taste

I just opened all the beans, rinsed & drained them, diced up the onion & threw it all in the pan. I lightly drained the tomatoes & tossed that in. Added the water & bouillon cubes & pepper. Put a lid on it & heated through until the onions & beans were tender. I think I had it on medium heat for about 45 mins.

2 c sugar
1 c applesauce (instead of oil)

Beat well and be sure to scrape the sides of your bowl halfway through. Fold in the chocolate chips and pour batter into pan. Bake 35-40 minutes. (Mine took closer 45 minutes.)

This is my family's favorite meal. I would like to give credit to the blogger I got it from, but I have lost it. I think I got the link from the Motherload blog. We like it best with the Barilla Marinara sauce.


To make the dough:
1 cup + 2 TB. of warm water
2 tsp. yeast
1-1/2 tsp. salt
3 cups flour

The easiest way to do this is to use your bread machine on the dough cycle, but if you don't have one simply start by dissolving the yeast in the water. Next you will add the flour and the salt until you are able to handle the dough (it shouldn't be extremely sticky, although a bit of stickiness is OK). Knead the dough on a lightly floured counter for 8 minutes. Place the dough in an oiled bowl (covered with a cloth) for 1 hour or until it doubles in size.

Gather your filling ingredients:
For these calzones I used meatballs and mozzarella cheese. For eight calzones I used approximately 16 meatballs (each one cut in half) and about 1 cup of cheese. You will also need spaghetti sauce, barbecue sauce or ranch dressing, depending on your filling ingredients.

Once your dough is done, divide it into 8 pieces. Roll one piece into a small circle and place your fillings on one-half of that circle:

Fold one-half of the dough over the filling and seal the edges with a fork (kids love to do this!). Be sure to seal the edges well so that the cheese doesn't leak out. Place these on a greased baking sheet:

Repeat with all of the dough pieces until you are done:

Bake in a 425 degree oven for 15-18 minutes or until they are golden brown. Serve and eat with your favorite sauce, or freeze in ziploc bags for later use.

These are great when served with pasta or green salad.

Here's a great slow cooker recipe for chicken and dumplings.

Place chicken breasts, sliced onion, carrots, dab of butter and two small cans of cream of chicken soup into your crockpot. Cover the chicken with water or my preference, chicken stock. Cook for about 5-6 hours on high. Add refrigerated biscuit dough torn into pieces and continuing cooking for about another hour. Easy and delicious!

Lazy Mommy Chicken:

Combine boneless chicken with various veggies (peppers, onions, potatoes, tomatoes, whatever suits your fancy), drizzle with oil and a pawful of Italian seasoning and pop into a 375 oven for 45-60 mins. Yummy and you get to ignore it while it cooks.

I forget where the recipe cam e from but here it is:
Put a whole chicken (cut up) into the slow cooker. Add a cup of chopped onions, a cup of chopped celery, a cup of chopped carrots to the slow cooker. Add a teaspoon of salt, pepper, and garlic powder along with some poultry seasonings. Pour in a can of chicken stock. Place 3 to 4 sliced potatoes on top. Cook on high for 30 minutes, then turn down to low for 6-8 hours.

It is easy, yummy, and pretty good for you.

Butterfinger Pie
(way too easy!)

Blend one small tub cool whip and 2 small cream cheese packages together (I think that's 16 oz ea.). Add 4-5 crushed butterfinger bars and blend again. sprinkle one more butterfinger bar on top of pie. It's really rich, but not super sweet. It's a hit at all potlucks that I bring it to.

I like homemade Chili. Brown turkey or low fat ground beef, add a big onion (I remove any fat from the pan before I add the Onions, add garlic and cumin and a bit of coriander. Add chili powder to taste along with a can of beans. I like kidney beans but other types will do in a pinch. Simmer for quite a while. Serve with cheese and pieces of buttered French bread and a green salad. I like almost any kind of apple desert with it.

Wow I love all the recipes I can't wait to go back and read through all of them. I have been eying this cookbook for a long time. I would love to win it.

My quickest crock pot meal is a roast, spices, onion soup mix and cover with water. I sometimes add potatoes and carrots for a full meal.

Kelsey said...

The book looks great!
Oh to pick just but one recipe!?

I guess I Would have to pick my easy cheesy potatoes

2 packages of Simply shredded hashbrown
1 large bag of swiss cheese
1 pint of heavy whipping cream
salt and pepper

Layer hash browns in pan, top with cheese and pour whipping cream throughout. Dot with butter and top with salt, pepper and paprika.

For a variation pick the simply potatoes with spice and use pepperjack cheese instead of swiss!

I just posted one of our favorites on my blog not too long ago...French Dip it's delicious!

Thanks for the giveaway!

Jacqueline in Atlanta said...

this is the easiest all-time appetizer to take somewhere. and it will all be gone when it is time to come home.
Get a pretty glass plate.
Open a block of cream cheese (8 oz) and put in center of plate.
Open a new jar of salsa (16 oz) and pour over the cheese.
Serve with Fritos Scoops or Tortilla chips.
You can jazz it up more with jalapenos, parsley or whatever, but that is the basics and everyone loves it. It is what I grab when I suddenly realize I am supposed to be somewhere and bring something and I totally forgot.

Thanks for having the giveaway!

Almost Nutri-grain bars:


1 (18 ounce) box yellow cake mix
2 1/2 cups quick-cooking oatmeal (use only quick-cooking)
1/2 cup brown sugar (use 3/4 cup for a sweeter crust and topping)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons melted butter (can use vegetable oil)
1 large egg, slightly beaten
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups your favorite preserves (I use boysenberry)


Set oven to 375 degrees (oven rack to second-bottom position).

Grease a 13 x 9-inch baking dish.

In a large bowl combine cake mix, oatmeal, cinnamon and brown sugar; mix with a spatula or a large wooden spoon.

In a small cup whisk egg with lemon juice and vanilla until combined; add to the crumb mixture along with melted butter.

Using a large wooden spoon toss to combine then use your fingers to finish the mixing.

Mix until the mixture clumps together.

Sprinkle a litle more than half of the crumb mixture into the pan then spread out evenly pressing firmly to cover bottom.

Spoon the jam carefully over the crust in the pan and spread evenly.

Cover with remaining crumb mixture over top of the jam then gently pat the mixture down slightly.

Bake for 20 minutes (the top should be very light brown)

Cool completely, or semi-freeze before cutting into bars (this will make cutting the bars easier).

I put my roast in the crockpot with a can of beef broth and a can of cream of mushroom soup. Sometimes I shred up the beef and make beef and noodles with this recipe. The sauce is fantastic!

This is my fave
Fresh Tomato Soup
Serves 4

2 teaspoons olive oil
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
5 medium very ripe tomatoes, cored and cut into 8 pieces each
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 sprig fresh thyme, chopped
pinch of sugar
2 1/2 cups chicken stock
1/2 cup whole milk (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
4 sprigs fresh chervil or 12 leaves fresh flat-leaf parsley

Warm the oil in a medium nonstick saucepan over medium-
low heat. Add the onions and cook for 10 minutes or until
very soft but not brown. Add the tomatoes, garlic, thyme
and sugar. Raise the heat to medium and simmer for 10
minutes. Stir in the stock and bring to a boil, then boil for
two minutes. Remove from heat and cool slightly.

Transfer to a blender or food processor fitted with the metal
blade. Process until smooth.

Strain the soup through a medium fine sieve into a clean
saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce
the heat to medium-low. Stir in the milk (if using). Season
with the salt and pepper. Simmer for 1 minutes.

Place equal portions in each of 4 shallow soup bowls.
Garnish the chervil or parsley.
