Things I Like


Slow cooker overnight Apple Cinnamon Oats


Another oatmeal recipe! I really like cooking steel cut oats in the crockpot. It’s nice to wake up to breakfast ready to go and using the water bath method, you don’t have to worry about the oats getting overcooked or burned. Not to mention it gets you a few breakfasts! This is […]

Slow cooker potato chowder

It’s fall and that means time for soups and warm meals! I made this soup on Monday to get us through the next couple days.

This is a super, super easy recipe. I used this recipe as the basis, but had to cut the ingredients down because the original wouldn’t fit in my 6-quart […]

Recipe: Creamed Chicken and Corn Soup in the crock pot

This was a weird weather weekend, wasn’t it? From bitter cold to warm and rainy. Of course, lot of rain on top of a foot of snow and there is nowhere for the rain to go. What a mess. It looked like pea soup in the afternoon on Saturday, too.

I had company for […]

Recipe: Crockpot Butter Chicken (Murgh makhani)

I know – you are all What?? Butter chicken? However, this recipe contains no butter at all There often is butter in this dish, but there are also plenty of versions that leave it out. It really is a very rich dish, which is cut by using lite coconut milk and nonfat greek yogurt instead […]

Recipe: Crock Pot Jambalaya

Okay, this is not technically a jambalaya, but it still tastes really good. It’s almost like a stew that you add rice to.

I found the base of this recipe here at Taste of Home and made changes.

A note on the sausage. Do NOT use an Italian sausage for this. If you don’t have […]

Slow Cooker Sesame Honey Chicken

You know what I love on stressful work days? Leftovers! They are just so easy. Also, it helps when the leftovers taste even better the second day!

I have been pinning slow cooker recipes lately. Or really, I have just been pinning a whole lot of stuff and recipes happen to be some of them. […]

Waiting and Corn and Potato Chowder!

I feel like we are just waiting around here to see what happens with the storm. Being far enough upstate to feel less effects, but not knowing exactly how much we will feel it. It’s scary seeing all the footage of down state. I think the worst part will be the days of wind since […]

Crockpot Cinnamon Chicken

Okay – here is recipe #1 that I tried this month for the crockpot. I am making and posting 3 no matter what the result.

I found this recipe for cinnamon chicken on The Gracious Pantry.

I modified it by halving it, first off, and using sweet potatoes instead of carrots, and I […]

Pheasant suggestions?

I can’t believe July is almost over. Dog days of summer coming up. Since we didn’t ride a lot over the weekend, I decided to go for an early ride before breakfast.

You knew I had to sneak a peek of the driveway in there, didn’t you??

9 solo miles of road riding. It […]

Recipe: Crockpot Teriyaki Chicken

This is one of the easiest recipes to date! I am enjoying finding crockpot recipes and tweaking them a bit.

Now the color of this dish doesn’t look so appealing, but it is tasty!


Tender, fall apart chicken thighs with a sweety and salty sauce with tart pineapple.
