Slow Cooker Shredded Chipotle Pork

Slow Cooker Shredded Chipotle Pork  - perfect for tacos, burritos and enchiladas

Happy Monday!  It’s gotten to be quite the tradition around here, sharing a slow cooker recipe on Mondays.  I think I will do a few more slow cooker recipes and then for the summer we may switch it up and do easy summer and grilling recipes.  What do you think? There are several things I really like about today’s recipe.  It has great flavor thanks to chipotle peppers and it is so versatile.  The pulled pork can be used so many different ways.  I like to just serve it over [Continue Reading…]

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff is a  simple and delicious solution to dinner!

Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Ginger Chicken

This month I got together with a group of bloggers to have a little fun and take the Mystery Basket Challenge.  We all contributed ideas to a list of ingredients and then we all made up a recipe using at least 3 of the ingredients on the list.  It’s kind of like that TV show “Chopped.”  Have you seen it? Here is the list of ingredients we had to work with: I am a big fan of chicken thighs so I knew that was one of my ingredients.  I wanted [Continue Reading…]

Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Carnitas

This slow cooker salsa verde carnitas is definitely a family favorite around here! I think today’s recipe gets the award for the most cooked recipe by my college kids.   I’ve had college kids for about the past 13 years (the baby graduates this April!!) and my four kids have probably made this recipe more than any other one while they’ve been away at college.  There are a couple of reasons for this.  It’s easy and it’s delicious! It is made in a slow cooker and it also makes a [Continue Reading…]

Slow Cooker Citrus Chicken

This is becoming a habit.  Mondays and slow cooker recipes.  I have found that I love using my slow cooker on Sundays especially.  We have 9:00 am church and are home by noon, or at least I am home by noon.  Because of his calling at church, my husband, can be there most of the day.  I love having dinner waiting in the slow cooker so that when he gets home, dinner is ready and waiting for us.  Sunday is suppose to be a day of rest, right?  Using my [Continue Reading…]
