Slow Cooker Stuffing with Sausage

It’s getting so close to Christmas!!! Well not really.. it’s still November… But hey American Thanksgiving is right around the corner isnt it?? Not that I celebrate with a turkey or anything, but for some reason I was really craving a big old roast chicken with stuffing and lots of it!!! You can’t fit nearly enough stuffing in a little chicken though, so I had to come up with another option. Alas, crock pot stuffing was born!! And it’s simply brilliant!

Slow Cooker: Chicken Tangine

Blogging in the wintertime is definitely a challenge. Especially when you work full time. When I get up, it’s dark; when I walk to work the sun is hardly rising, and when I walk home from work, the sun is just about setting. Doesn’t make for much time to take photos when all the natural light is when I’m at work! This is when you have to get creative. That means making things and saving them for the weekend so you can sneak some of that natural light in… Or you know spending your whole weekend blogging? But hey who has time for that!

Cheddar Jalapeno Cornmeal Muffins

I always forget how much I love cornmeal muffins. Andrew’s mom used to always make them whenever she made chili, and every time I vowed I would make them… and keep forgetting! So finally, I remembered to make some cornmeal muffins with my chili! However, I decided to spice them up a bit, (literally) by adding jalapenos and cheddar cheese!

Recipe Roundup: October Favourites

I can’t believe it’s already November… It is seriously baffling my mind how fast time flies when you are working full time!  Back when I was in school, it felt like time would stand still and I would never get through it!  October was a lovely month for me as I was hired on as a full time permanent employee!  I am feeling very grown up and independent these days!  Although I am sad to see October come to an end, I’m excited for what November brings!  Lots of exciting new recipes will be coming your way – especially in preparation for Christmas!  On that note, here were your favorite of our posts from October!

Slow Cooker: Turkey Chili

I had a very special friend of mine ask me what I put in my crock pot chili!  I got so excited because I had actually recently made a big batch of chili with jalapeno cheddar corn muffins (recipe to coming soon).  I lso got excited because maybe this is the inspiration she needs to finally take the crock pot I gave her out of the box! ;) Did you also know that chili freezes extremely well?  This chili recipe makes a very large batch, so whatever you don’t eat – stick it in small containers and put it in the freezer!  You could wither take these with you to work for lunches, or just de-thaw them when you don’t feel like making dinner.

Banana Coconut Pineapple Upside Down Cake

So I kind of messed up… I accidentally opened a can of pineapple rings when I had intended to open a can of crushed pineapple… So I guess you could say I was almost forced to make this cake; I mean what else do you do with pineapple rings??? Does anyone know? I’ve also slowly but surely been accumulating all these over-ripe bananas in my freezer. There is always that one banana that just gets way too ripe and doesn’t get eaten in time. Thankfully, I came up with a delicious solution to my problem.

Crispy Roasted Parmesan Garlic Chickpeas

My preferred way of eating chickpeas, if you haven’t guessed by now, is puréeing them into a wonderful creation known as hummus. I don’t know how many times I may have said this but I absolutely freaking love hummus and it eat like it’s going out of style. Chickpeas themselves though, I’m not so crazy for. It’s the texture that gets to me, it makes sense as a dip but eating them in a salad is not my forte. However, When you roast them in an oven they take on a certain crispiness that I am growing to love and are a great healthy snack.

Slow Cooker: Overnight Apple Cinnamon Quinoa Oatmeal

Those of you who know me, know I love a goo hot breakfast. Although during the week, it is often not easy to get a hot breakfast in as I am trying my hardest to leave on time to get to work. I mean don’t get me wrong, I do love my homemade granola in the morning, but sometimes it’s nice to switch it up! The best thing about this oatmeal is that it takes no time to prepare in the morning! You dump all the ingredients in the slow cooker, and go to bed. When you wake up, you are left with a fabulous and fulling gluten-free breakfast!
