Each Thursday during the Fall and Winter I will showcase a slow cooker (crock-pot) recipe that I have tried and tasted. By sharing I hope you will be able to save a little time during the week as we all know saving time is just as valuable as saving money. And you will be able to enjoy a hot meal at the end of your day.
This week’s recipe is for Chicken and Dumplings! I personally love chicken and dumplings so I was excited to find an easy recipe to try. One thing to note is I put more celery and potatoes in then called for so I had to add more water to the pot in order for it to not be a large mess. Good rule of thumb is to keep the water level at 2/3 of the pot if it’s a soup or stew.
*Or on HIGH for 4 to 5 hours.

** Substituted White Sweet Potatoes for Yukon Gold Potatoes and Oregano for Thyme as these were what I had on hand.
Thanks The Centsible Family!
As promised here is my favorite crockpot pork recipe using boneless sirloin tip roast. My house smells like heaven on Earth with this super easy pulled pork recipe and the most important thing for a working mom like me is that it is super easy to prepare. I love this and my children do as well.
I have to say this week I am so busy I do not have time to make anything new. I know sad ha? I thought I would share a quick dinner idea that I used last night since we had Karate at 4:30-5:30 and then basketball 6:00-7:00. I mean sometimes you just have to do what you can.
1 bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce
1/4 cup of water
as many ribs as your family can eat or will fit in your crockpot
Place 1/4 cup of water in the crock pot add ribs $4.18 and pour on the sauce $1.00. Place your crock pot on low for 8 hours… Voila dinner!
I threw in some Uncle Ben’s rice 90 seconds (free) in the microwave and a bag of Dole Salad mix ($1.00). DONE for under $7.00!
