Baked Ziti is a classic dish and this version of Crockpot Baked Ziti gives you a slow cooked meat sauce without overcooking your pasta and making it mushy! The sauce comes out perfect and the pasta comes out nice and tender. If you would prefer to switch out the ground beef with turkey, you can and it will cut down on some of the fat. [Read more…]
I love super easy recipes and this one for Crockpot Chicken Thighs and Potatoes couldn’t be better. The crockpot does most of the work and the sear on the chicken thighs before you put them in makes the chicken get an awesome flavor that matches perfectly with the garlicky potatoes. This is a great option for a mid-week meal. You can have a delicious dinner waiting for you when you get home! Who doesn’t love that kind of ease? [Read more…]
There are some foods that can go with anything. Chili is a great dish because you can always mix it up however you want! You can have chicken, vegetarian, etc. This Hearty Beef Chili is a great version because you can prep it easily and let it cook all day while you do other stuff and it will be ready to chow down when you are! If you want to let this simmer on the stove instead, just follow the instructions and put it in a soup pot on low to cook nice and thick for you. I prefer to top with cheddar cheese and sour cream but you can use whatever you want; jalapeños, use a piece of Honey Cornbread for dipping, anything goes! [Read more…]
I love baked potatoes! Especially Crockpot Baked Potatoes! They are an easy side dish that can be filled with anything! Sometimes though, they can hold up your dinner if they don’t cook long enough in the oven. If you want to take that worry away, you can make them right in your crockpot! They come out soft and delicious and you don’t have to worry about timing them around your main course. You let them slow cook away and they will be ready just in time. They will also save you on oven space since these will be cooked elsewhere. All you need to get ready is all of your favorite toppings, you can watch the butter and cheese melt right in and your ready to eat! [Read more…]
January is the time where every starts over and tries to commit to a healthier lifestyle. This is harder for some people but there are ways to help make the lifestyle choices you need to.

This version makes about 10 servings and is 173 calories per serving! Plus it’s so filling that you can eat it by itself and it will fill you up thanks to the spinach and peppers! [Read more…]
I love coming up with different ways to make chicken. It can get boring if you have a chicken heavy diet without variety to there are tons of recipes here that can get you out of that rut. Like Pineapple Salsa Chicken! Pineapple in salsa is a great combination, the sweetness of the fruit helps counteract the spiciness of the salsa so it makes for a really delicious mix of flavors! This meal gets slow cooked in the crockpot so you can prep it and then get other things done while this simmers away for you. If you can’t handle a lot of spice you can take out the jalapeño or the chili powder to tone down the heat for you. [Read more…]
