Easy & Delicious Crock Pot Chuck Roast

Easy and Delicious Crock-Pot Chuck Roast – Cook once, Five Days of Meals

One of my favorite go-to meals is pot roast. It’s one of the few things that everyone in my family will eat without complaint. It’s super simple to cook and is very hard to ruin with this Easy and Delicious Crock-Pot Chuck Roast recipe! I’m all about the set it and forget it cooking style! That is why I love my Crock-Pot (6-Quart Countdown Slow Cooker with Stove top-Safe Cooking Pot) so much. I use my slow cooker several times a week, even in the summer. It is a lifesaver! This particular Crock-Pot has a double-duty DuraCeramic cooking pot. I no longer need to use a separate pan to brown, sear, or saute ingredients before putting them into the slow cooker! The DuraCeramic cooking pot is safe to use on the stovetop, brown the meat and …

All opinions are mine alone. #EatLightEatRight #CollectiveBias I can eat soup anytime… it doesn’t matter what the weather is like outside, a piping hot bowl of Progresso® soup always hits the spot for me. It is a staple in my pantry; I stock up on all the amazing Progresso® Light varieties especially when they are on sale at Walmart. It’s a quick and easy meal that’s filling but low in calories. Perfect on those busy days when I don’t have a lot of time to make lunch. One day I had a major craving for my tortilla soup but I didn’t have all the ingredients on hand. I looked around my pantry to see what I could make and a light bulb went off. I …

Super Easy & Delicious Pumpkin Bread

Tasty Tuesday – Super Easy Pumpkin Bread

My family has become slightly obsessed with pumpkin bread. It calls to me when I walk near a Starbucks, and always seems to find its way into my cart at the grocery store. But purchasing pumpkin bread isn’t cheap when you have five little girls who will eat a whole loaf in one sitting. I discovered a pumpkin bread mix at the grocery store and it was an okay substitute for the store bought bread, not amazing, just okay. Last night I was having a major craving for some pumpkin bread, but the store was closed and I didn’t have a mix on hand so I pulled some things out of the pantry and decided to make my own version of pumpkin bread. I have to say it turned out …

Black-Bottom Cheesecake Bars

Black-Bottom Cheesecake Bars

“Black-Bottom Cheesecake Bars” has been sponsored by Ankarsrum Original USA but all photos, thoughts and opinions are my own. Over the years my sweet-tooth had diminished a lot. Now I find myself attracted to more savory foods like Shrimp Tacos with Creamy Jalapeno Sauce, Inside out Grilled Cheese, Iowa Pork Tenderloin sandwiches with Tangy Apple Slaw, just to name a few. But there is one dessert that gets me every time. Cheesecake. I just can’t resist it’s creamy deliciousness. So when I saw the newest Cook the Book with Denise and Jenni featured cheesecakes from Melanie Underwood’s book Making Artisan Cheesecake, I knew I couldn’t miss it. (You can watch the replay here.) Every cheesecake they made on the show looked amazing! But as soon as I saw the Black-Bottom Cheesecake bars I knew I …

Tasty Tuesday – Fresh Mozzarella and Sausage Frittata

Tasty Tuesday – Fresh Mozzarella and Sausage Frittata

It’s really tough to find something that my whole family will eat for breakfast. One hates bacon (if she didn’t look just like me I’d question her parentage), one doesn’t like most cheeses (ditto), one doesn’t like pancakes, several don’t like oatmeal… but they all love this frittata. It took me a little coaxing to get some of the girls to try this, but once they did they were hooked! Any time they see mozzarella and eggs in the fridge they ask me to make a frittata. It’s simple to make and you can easily substitute ingredients to customize it for each person… make it vegetarian, fill it full of meat, add roasted peppers, artichokes, swap out the cheese, anything you want! In case you aren’t familiar with what a …

Did you know August is National Sandwich Month? My family has been eating a lot of sandwiches this month. Not because we are celebrating National Sandwich Month, but because I haven’t had time to actually cook! “Mom! What’s for dinner?” “I’m working. Make a sandwich.” “Not sandwiches again!!” “It’s that or go hungry.” “UGH!!!!” Between work, back to school shopping, unpacking from our move, and my firstborn heading off to college, August has been one of the toughest months for me. The only reason …
