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 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. I made…

Slow Cooker Sesame Ginger Pork with Grilled Pineapple

Hawaiian Ginger Sesame Pork in the slow cooker. Easy. Healthy. Delicious! Recipe on GoodieGodmother.com

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…

Slow Cooker Chili

I have a confession to make darlings. I nearly got into an altercation, at the farmer’s market, over the crockpot. Not really, but it sounds more dramatic if I tell it that way. What actually happened was that the Godfather and I ventured out to the farmer’s market last Saturday to pick up some local produce. There was a poultry vendor at the market, and so we stopped by to…

Clean Eating Cuban-Style: Slow Cooker Cuban Chicken

We are heading into our first “real” winter. The Godfather and I have never actually lived somewhere with “seasons” in the traditional sense. We knew rainy season and not so rainy, blistering hot, and the beach at Christmas – not snow. I really don’t want to think about that right now. I want to cling to the last few rays of warm sunshine, revel in the amazing fall colors and…

Rosemary Asiago Cheese in the CROCKPOT! (Seriously)

Can you be BFFs with a website? Because I think my BFFN (best friend for now) social media website has to be Pinterest. I thought it was Instagram (and I still love my picture feed), but Pinterest is my favorite way to pass a few minutes before bed each day looking at pretty pictures, planning my dream closet, getting ideas for our next home, discovering recipes, it’s a wealth of…

Chicken Pesto Slow Cooker Soup

Delicious, healthy, comforting, and filling! This slow cooker chicken pesto soup is a hearty meal perfect for chilly weather!

This post updated October 2015 as part of the #ThrowbackThursday photography project. There are no old photos because apparently I was so embarrassed that I removed them previously and left the post without pictures.  Baby Girl entered our lives just under twelve weeks ago. Some things have changed dramatically, and other things have stayed the same, but the one thing that absolutely floors me is how quickly the time is passing. I saw…
