Slow-Cooker Roast Beef


Ever since I was a child, one of my favourite Sunday dinners has been roast beef.  On Sundays when we’re home in the afternoon, I’ll roast the beef in the oven.  A lot of times, though, we go out on Sundays to spend time together as a family.  On those Sundays, I often cook a […]

Slow-Cooker Apple Maple Pork Tenderloin


Bennett has been taking karate lessons from 5:30-6:00pm on Wednesdays, so that night has become our slow-cooker dinner night. We come in the door after karate to a hot dinner waiting for us. One Wednesday, I decided to make up a recipe using a pork tenderloin in the slow-cooker. I found one lonely Ambrosia apple […]

Crockpot Berry Pudding Cake


  This summer has been a great one. I’m doing my best to live it up while it lasts, so bring on the summer desserts! With the hot weather, it’s nice to have a dessert that won’t melt but also won’t heat up your house with a hot oven. This crockpot pudding cake fits the […]

Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala


I don’t know about you, but I don’t feel like cooking when it’s really hot out. I’d rather spend the afternoon outside in my backyard with a cold drink in my hand, enjoying the sunshine while the kids play. That’s why I love using my slow cooker on hot days. I can get dinner started […]

Crockpot Gyros


An authentic gyro is roasted in a vertical spit, but this crockpot version is a great homemade alternative to the real thing. I discovered this recipe through Pinterest at Rainy Day Gal. Her recipe is an adaptation of one by A Year of Slow Cooking. I couldn’t find ground lamb, so I used beef instead. […]

Slow Cooked Ribs


Hey there, remember me? I’m back and I’m finally posting a new recipe! Sorry to be absent for so long. I don’t really even have a good excuse, since we`ve been back from our trip for almost 2 weeks now. We went to Cuba for our 10th wedding anniversary (kidless!) and it was wonderful. Here are some […]

Crockpot Goulash


 Goulash is basically a stew seasoned with paprika, often served with pasta or potatoes. I like that this version is done in the crockpot, because I love using my crockpot whenever possible. It’s nice to prepare a meal ahead of time and just forget about it until dinner-time rolls around. All you need to remember with […]

Turkey Vegetable Soup


After indulging in far too many unhealthy treats during Christmas, I’ve been starting to crave wholesome and nutritious foods that have been sadly lacking in my diet lately. I happen to have a lot of leftover turkey in my fridge, as I’m sure many of you do, so this soup was a perfect way to use some of […]
