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…

Beef Tallow

Save money and eat well by making your own grass fed beef tallow in the slow cooker!

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…

How to Make Bone Broth in Your Crock Pot

You won't believe how easy it is to make your own beef bone broth at home in no time!

Have clearer skin, shinier hair, increased energy, and a self-cleaning house just by drinking bone broth! Kidding. 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…

Only a few weeks to go until it’s officially Spring and I can put our first “real” winter (the kind with snow) behind us! A “winter person” I am not. It’s lovely to visit after a fresh snow, but the frigid temperatures, grey skies, and not nearly enough “Winter Wonderland” type scenes to make up for it all winter style of Northern Virginia needs to be replaced by spring, flowers, and…

Slow Cooker Short Ribs

I think every year needs a word to be a personal theme or mantra. Last year, I chose “fearless” and worked on letting go of a lot of my fears, whether it be a fear of walking away, fear of trying something new, fear of unfamiliar territory… I spent the year letting go of my fears. When I was thinking about this year’s plans the other day, the word “unstoppable” came…

Ropa Vieja – Cuban Shredded Beef

Looking back at my 2014 Pinterest statistics, I noticed that one of the most popular Goodie Godmother pins was the slow cooker ropa vieja recipe I posted in March 2013. That’s some pretty impressive longevity, but I think it’s time to revisit the recipe. For one, my photography has improved dramatically since then and I’m no longer just shooting with my iPhone. And second, because I don’t really use the jarred…

Slow Cooker Ghee

We had a Secret Santa gift exchange with my family this year. We now have 8 adults in the family and one infant. So instead of just buying whatever for each person or couple, we decided to try something more personal. I had gift ideas in mind for just about every possible person EXCEPT the person I drew. Go figure. I know he’s a professional football fan, both my brother-in-laws are,…

Mexican Pork Tamales

We discover a lot of food on our travels. As some of you may have gathered, we travel a good bit both for the Godfather’s job and just on our own for fun. We’ve taken two cross-country road trips so far, and between those trips, we had a sojourn in central California where we were introduced to Mexican food (and its incredible varied regional styles). Growing up in South Florida, Taco…
