One thing I do love around the holidays is these salty, sweet nuts with just a bit of a kick to them. They’re a little sugary, a little salty, slightly spicy, crunchy and just divine. And Sweet Spicy Slow Cooker Nuts are pretty much addictive.
Slow Cooker Zucchini Beef Soup has got to be the perfect end of summer soup, especially if you happen to have a garden still spitting out zucchini! Here in the Twin Cities, I’m still seeing a few on my neighbor’s plants. Me, I know better than to ever plant zucchini – the plants never stop and you’ll have zucchini out the ears, lol!
Not too long ago, I posted out the recipes I have on my site that were made with Lipton’s Onion Soup Mix. Or rather, my Homemade Onion Soup Mix recipe. There were quite a few more than I thought I had on my site, but there was one glaring omission. I’ve never posted it because it’s so easy, it’s hardly a recipe. It’s that Old Lipton Onion Soup Pot Roast Recipe from the 60’s.
I wish we all had time to stand in front of the barbecue and have parties on the deck (or by the pool if you’re so lucky) but man, sometimes we’re just busy and need to eat! That’s when this big batch of Honey Barbecue Pulled Chicken is a lifesaver.
I recently posted a Black-Eyed Pea & Rice Salad (I loooove that salad!) so I thought today would be a great day to talk about Black-Eyed Peas, how to shop for them and how to cook them. (If you are looking for Black Eyed Peas, the meal, like you would serve for New Year’s, see my post on Traditional Black Eyed Peas.)
If you grew up in the Midwest or any area with German (or Eastern European) roots, you might have grown up with this hearty & healthy soup. And you already know that Smoked Sausage and Cabbage Soup is absolute comfort food. A bowl of this will warm you up from the inside out even on the coldest days.
A slow cooker, also known as a crock-pot is a countertop electrical cooking appliance…that facilitates unattended cooking for many hours of dishes that would otherwise be boiled: pot roast, soups, stews and other dishes…Wikipedia

I always say I don’t use my crockpot enough, so if you’re like me, here’s a recipe that will put that slow cooker into regular rotation. Honey Lime Chicken. If there’s ever a better taste combo than slightly spicy, slightly sweet, tangy Slow Cooker Mexican Style Honey Lime Chicken I don’t know what it is…
Hey guys! I’ve been super psyched over my very retro Home-Made Onion Soup Mix. While you can’t say this about everything, it’s been like a little trip to the past that’s actually turned out better than I remembered! One thing I’ve been using it for is this Campbell’s Ultimate Slow Cooker or Instant Pot Roast.
If you saw my last two posts, you probably knew something with a bit of barbecue flair was coming up. The Sweet Heat Rub and the Honey Chipotle Barbecue Sauce were a dead give away. And here it is, Country Style Ribs in the Slow Cooker. They might look a little gnarly but that’s good down home cooking and they are absolutely delish!
I don’t know about you, but I love, love, love me some Chicken Tortilla Soup. Or some Turkey Tortilla Soup. Or probably ANY Tortilla Soup. Just put it in front of me and I’ll eat it – no questions asked.
Slow cooked to perfection, this fall off the bone, tender pork was featured in “Slow Cooker Redeemed” in the New York Times. “It results in a vaguely Vietnamese tangle of pulled pork that is best accompanied by a bright and crunchy slaw, and served on warm flour tortillas…” I made you wait for Vaguely Vietnamese Slow Cooker Pork Tacos, yesterday when I posted the Vaguely Vietnamese Slaw recipe, and I think these Tacos are worth that little delay.
Does it seem you wait and wait and wait for Summer and all of a sudden it’s just too dang hot? And as we’ve all heard, “It’s not the heat it’s the humidity.” What exactly IS that supposed to mean, anyway? Don’t ever say that to me. I’ll be cranky when it’s too hot and give you a “look.” You know the kind of look I mean…the one that says “What in the H E double hockey sticks are you talking about?!”
I’m always on the lookout for budget protein and when I saw this Rump roast at a great sales price I picked it up. Rump can be a tough, dry cut, sometimes a bit tasteless but cooked long and slow in a flavorful bath of aromatics and spices I knew it would be luscious.
Depending on where you live (and if you don’t have a Mexican market nearby) Dulce de Leche can be pretty pricey.
Ropa Vieja. Yeah, it translates to old clothes or old rags – gosh that name just does not do this lovely meal justice! Slowly simmered beef, simmered until it’s all but fallen apart, with garlic and cumin and aromatics. And then there are the peppers. Oh my.
I’ve gotta say I’ve wanted to try crockpot caramelized onions for a long time…and I finally have. I have mixed feelings about my crockpot, btw. What they do well, they do SO well and what they don’t do well…yikes!
Hey guys, it’s me, the Frugal Hausfrau, with an easy crock pot recipe for a “barbecued” brisket or pork shoulder that, wait for it, uses convenience products! Yikes – has the earth ended? Maybe the lunar eclipse of the blood moon we had last week affected my mind! Y’all know I love a good scratch recipe but this Crock Pot Slow Cooker Pulled Pork or Brisket has me breaking that little rule. Oh, I’m such a rebel…
There are so many ways to make Warm Mulled Cider, or Spiced Cider, as it’s sometimes called, but this is the recipe I’ve made for years and it’s really a family favorite.
I always love to make a Slow Cooker Pulled Pork. It’s so easy and there’s nothing like a set it and forget it recipe. Of course, this Slow Cooker Pulled Pork takes a bit of time but that’s pretty much time while you’re doing whatever you have to do. And then there is that tantalizing aroma filling your kitchen, driving you nuts, until the moment you open that slow cooker to this glorious pork and snitch that first bite before you even take it out. Don’t you tell me that’s just me!! I know you do it, too. Or maybe it IS just me?
Hands down one of our favorite family recipes, this Mexican Shredded Pork or Beef has it all. Flavor, as much or as little heat as you want, and a lot of versatility. Make Tacos, Flautas, Tostadas, or Burritos, just to get started. Best of all, Mexican Shredded Pork or Beef is super easy; braise it in the oven or use the slow cooker.
