Slow Cooker Red Beans and Rice

A bowl of red beans over rice

The entire time I was making/eating this dish I had Sir Mix-a-Lot’s “Baby Got Back” in my head – ‘Red beans and rice didn’t miss her!” I’ve been hitting my slow cooker hard lately but for some random reason I’d never made beans in my slow cooker.  Weird right?  I mean dried beans and slow cookers go together like peanut butter and ...

Slow Cooker Italian Turkey Pot Roast

Why is it my best meals never photo well? *frustrating* I tried to make this meal three separate times previously and something always happened to foil my plans (husband cooked it on high for 9 hours, slow cooker broke, etc.). Well I finally made it, and it was glorious!  Everything just combined in the cooker to make magic and I thoroughly enjoyed every ... Read More »

Let me preface this by saying that we’ve figured out that we do not like beets – at all.  Although if given a choice between a simple sautéed swiss chard dish and beets I’d probably go beets (at least there were kind of sweet).  The husband really liked the chard but hated the beets. Go figure. So I’m going to have two variations/ideas ... Read More »

Fish Tacos topped with Grilled Corn and Grilled Avocado Salsa

So I finished my Finance midterm in an hour and a half…and I was the first one done…crap.  I’m hoping I’m not being crazy but I’m always worried when something like that happens.  Either I did extremely well (which considering it’s finance probably isn’t that likely) or I bombed it.  Fingers crossed! Basically after that test my brain was fried ... Read More »
