Have I mentioned how much I love using my slow cooker!? I use it at least twice a week, and it makes dinner time go by so smoothly. It’s also great for making large meals without having to dirty up a bunch of pans! As some of you know, my husband is living a gluten free dairy free life so I try to make sure I make meals that he can eat and the kids will still love. This week I’m sharing one of my daughters favorite recipes, my Gluten Free Dairy Free Slow Cooker Mongolian Beef Recipe! This is SO easy to make, and when done is fork tender. You can serve it over rice, noodles, or as my daughter likes it, mashed potatoes! You can also make a big batch of this and freeze it for later! Continue reading
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 recipe allows for substitutions, too. Use your favorite “cream of” soup; use ground beef or turkey instead of sausage; use unpeeled or peeled potatoes; vary the cheese using Swiss or spice it up by using pepper Jack. This is our favorite Sausage & Potato Slow Cooker Supper .Continue reading

Growing up my favorite casserole my mom made was something she called Minnesota Casserole. It was delicious good and always smelled good when she cooked it in the oven. The best time was when she cooked it in the crock-pot because then it smelled delicious all day long. It is truly a recipe you can put in the crock-pot and leave for the day.
