This easy slow cooker chickpea curry is a perfect, economical vegetarian dinner recipe!
I am a lazy cook when it comes to feeding myself. Times when the Godfather travels for work, I eat a lot of eggs, oatmeal, salad, and slow cooker dishes. Things that are easy to prepare, and use a minimal number of dishes. Before little ones, I would often make a large slow cooker dish, like this slow cooker chickpea curry, at the beginning of his trip and eat that the rest of the trip. Now that I have people to cook for even when he’s gone, I don’t do this quite as often, but still make a few favorites for the family from time to time. (more…)
Slow cooker guava glazed meatballs is a great dish to serve at parties! This recipe is a unique spin on traditional slow cooker meatball recipes.
The first time I truly understood the power of the slow cooker meatball as a powerhouse appetizer was at my baby sister’s rehearsal dinner. To keep costs down, they opted to have a casual rehearsal dinner with a mix of homemade and store-bought foods.

These brownie sundaes couldn’t be simpler to make because the brownies are baked right in your slow cooker! Top them with a dollop of ice cream and some chopped BUTTERFINGER® Minis, and you have one Easter dessert everyone will love! (more…)
Learn how to make your own grass-fed beef tallow easily using your slow cooker!
A quick google search showed me that grass-fed beef tallow is selling at over $15, easily, for a 14-ounce jar. Perhaps it’s because tallow is loaded with healthy fats and oils, making it wonderful for cooking. Perhaps it’s because tallow is very versatile and can also be used to make emergency candles, soap, and a super nourishing body butter. Or perhaps it’s because places like Washingtonian Magazine call tallow one of the 15 hottest food trends of 2015. Whatever the reason, that’s a whole lot of dough to shell out for some fat, especially when you can render your own so easily. (more…)
Have clearer skin, shinier hair, increased energy, and a self-cleaning house just by drinking bone broth!
But seriously, bone broth is one of the hottest new beverages around, which is funny because it’s basically filtered cup o’ homemade soup. I’m not going to suggest you swap out your morning beverage for broth unless you want to (it does taste good), but I am going to tell you that you need to be making this because there is absolutely no reason to be buying your soup stock!
