Honey Garlic Slow Cooker Chicken

I love my crockpot.  I have 3 and could easily get more.  There is nothing better than coming home from a hard stressful day at work or returning from a killer workout to a house that smells delicious and dinner is ready to eat.  This is by far one of the easiest recipes I have thrown together in the crockpot.  The only downside is that it is not pretty.  However the meat is so flavorful that you are not going to care what it looks like.  You will just shovel it into your face hole!

Mojito Fruit Salad

The holidays are over and life is starting to settle back to "normal."  I wanted to share a recipe that I made for Christmas Brunch but loved it so much that I attempted to make it again for a birthday pot luck that I went to.

This super duper easy fruit salad got rave reviews from everyone who ate it.  It is also a great recipe for all of those health conscious/ resolution makers. No guilt!

I like the fact that this recipe can be easily changed up with whatever fruit you enjoy or what is in season!  Even if you don't cook you can make this recipe.  No stove required

Adapted from http://www.momontimeout.com/2013/07/mojito-fruit-salad/


8 cups fresh fruit, chopped (nectarines, peaches, strawberries, blueberries, kiwi, grapes, melon, plums, pluots, etc.) (My first had strawberry, blueberries, pineapple and grapes and my second attempt I used Strawberry, Raspberry, Grapes, Blueberries and Cherries)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup lime juice (I just did this but if you want a boozy brunch add the rum)
OR 1/4 cup lime juice and 1/4 cup rum
2 Tbls fresh mint, chiffonade

Alternate recipe- 
I tried to make a this fruit salad again but forgot to buy the mint. =( Kinda takes the Mojito out of the fruit salad.  So I improved and swapped the sugar for brown, took out the water, and added cinnamon and cherry extract.  This was also delicious.

8 cups fresh fruit, chopped (nectarines, peaches, strawberries, blueberries, kiwi, grapes, melon, plums, pluots, etc.)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup lime juice
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon cherry extract

1.Combine sugar and water in a small saucepan over low heat.
2.Heat until sugar is fully dissolved. Let cool.
3.Stir in lime juice and/or rum.
4.Drizzle about of the lime mixture over chopped fruit and gently stir until combined.
5.Continue adding lime mixture just until fruit is lightly coated. You don't want a puddle at the bottom of the bowl.
6.Sprinkle with fresh mint and stir gently just prior to serving.

Easy Crockpot Beef Burgundy

I love my crockpot.  There is nothing better than coming home from a long day at work and dinner is ready and waiting for you to eat it.  This recipe was a gamble...I wasn't sure how it was going to work out but I was very impressed at the richness of the gravy and the tenderness of the meat.   It will be added to my regular crockpot rotation.

1/4 cup flour
2 tablespoons cornstarch, divided
1 teaspoon steak seasoning
2 pounds cubed beef for stew
4-5 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion
1 cup red wine
2 tablespoons minced garlic
4 ounces sliced mushrooms
1 tsp salt
3 bay leaves
1 cup beef broth
1/4 cup warm water
Combine flour, 1 tablespoon cornstarch and steak seasoning in a ziploc bag and shake to mix.
Add stew meat to the bag and seal; Shake to coat and set aside.
Add the olive oil to a large skillet over medium high heat.
Once the oil is hot, add the beef mixture and cook 5-6 minutes, turning often to brown meat on all sides.
While the beef is browning, peel and slice the onion in half and chop into 1/2-inch pieces.
Add the onion and the wine to the pan and cook for 2 minutes.
Stir in garlic, mushrooms, bay leaves, and beef broth, and bring to a boil.
While that comes to a boil, add 1 tablespoon cornstarch and the warm water to a small bowl and stir until dissolved.
Pour the cornstarch mixture into meat and stir for 1-2 minutes.
Remove from heat and pour the stew into the crock pot.
***At this point, the stew could be refrigerated overnight to slow cook the next day. IF refrigerating overnight, add an extra 1/4 cup each beef broth and red wine to the stew. ***
Cook on LOW for 8 hours or on HIGH for 4 hours.
Discard bay leaves before serving and add salt & pepper to taste.
Garnish with chopped parsley if desired.
Preparation time: 10 – 15 minutes
Cooking time: 4-8 hours, depending on temperature
Number of servings (yield):  6

Pizza Meatloaf

I overheard a coworker talking about making a Paleo version of Pizza Meatloaf.  I couldn't resist making my own version.  This was delicious and the black olives were perfect in keeping this loaf moist. 

I typically don't make ALOT of meatloaf.  I enjoy the meat blend of ground beef and Italian sausage.

Adapted from mccormick.com/

Serves: 10

1 pound  ground beef

1 pound Italian sausage

2 eggs, lightly beaten

4 ounces chopped black olives

1/2 cup milk

1/4 cup dry bread crumbs ( I only had panko on hand)

1 teaspoon garlic

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon McCormick® Oregano Leaves

Pepperoni Slices

1/2 cup pizza sauce

1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


Preheat oven to 375°F. Mix all ingredients, except pepperoni,  pizza sauce and cheese, in large bowl until well blended.

Shape meat mixture into a loaf. Place in foil-lined baking pan or sprayed with cooking oil.. Top with pepperoni and then pizza sauce.

Bake 55 minutes.(Mine took about 70 minutes to be fully cooked through) Sprinkle with cheese. Bake 5 minutes longer or until cooked through.
