Crockpot Caramelized Onions

Make perfect Caramelized Onions in your crockpot! They're amazing in grilled cheese sandwiches. Freeze them in muffin tins, so you can always keep some on hand.

Caramelized onions are pretty fantastic. They add a perfect combination of sweet and savory flavours to just about anything, like quesadillas, grilled cheese sandwiches, pizza, eggs, grilled meat, pasta sauce, hamburgers…whatever you want! They take your food to a whole new level. But they can be tricky and time-consuming to make, because they usually require a lot of […]

Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce

Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce

Oh yes! Two of my favourite things in one post: spaghetti and slow cookers.  We eat spaghetti quite often, and I also cook with my slow cooker a lot, so I’m surprised I’ve never shared a recipe for slow cooker spaghetti sauce before now.
