Sausage & Potato Slow Cooker Supper Recipe

Sausage & Potato Slow Cooker Supper

   Sausage & Potato Slow Cooker Supper Recipe The busier life gets, the more I use my slow cooker.  I like meals that taste baked, but are actually made in the slow cooker which is a very easy method of cooking.  This casserole bakes slowly with very little moisture.  I was skeptical, at first, because this recipe didn’t call for any liquid in the slow cooker.  But, I gave it a try, and I’m so glad I did.  The edges browned beautifully giving the dish a crispy texture.  This ...

Baked Chicken Fingers Recipe

Baked Chicken Fingers Recipe Boneless chicken has been on sale for the last couple of weeks. This is a great recipe to use and make ahead a time and freeze. !

I have been using the same chicken ...

Slow Cooker Lasagna Recipe With Bertolli Sauce

slow cooker lasagna recipe

Slow Cooker Lasagna Recipe With Bertolli Sauce Growing up, my mother would strive to make each and every birthday special for my sister and myself. On your birthday, you could pick any dinner you want, and Mama would prepare it for the Birthday Girl. My birthday dinner was always lasagna. This was probably because the classic dish was not something Mama prepared very often. And, it can be a pricey dish. However, it feeds a lot of hungry folks, so it is a favorite in many families. I decided ...
