Garlic Shrimp {slow cooker}

I have a shrimp obsession. At a work conference, I filled up a whole plate of food and then discovered there was shrimp. WAIT, WHAT?!? So I did what any shrimp lover would do. Piled the shrimp on high over the other food   I then ran across this recipe from the Washington Post (and by ran across, I mean I… Continue reading

Chuck Roast BBQ {slow cooker}

Yum….bbq! I could have everything doused in barbecue sauce and be a happy camper. Since we are moving soon, I am trying to cook EVERYTHING that we have in the freezer. I found a vacuum-sealed chuck roast and knew what I had to do– cook it in the slow cooker and cover in it barbecue sauce. So I did, and… Continue reading

All hail the crock pot! It has been my favorite thing this winter. The hubby even got me a new one for Valentine’s Day, and this one has a timer — dream come true.

Crock Pot Beef

This is one of the first times I have used my slow cooker this winter season.  Doesn’t make sense, right? I should  be using it all the time in the winter, but I’m gone for longer than 8-10 hours most days, so it doesn’t quite work out with the slow cookers.  I had one epic fail, and everything was super… Continue reading
