Hi Ho Hi Ho...

back to work I go. :(

This thursday (12/4) is when I go back to work after having Caleb.  Can't believe the 12 weeks have flown by.  It has been amazing time being able to spend it with him and being able to bond - I will miss being able to hold him.

What does this mean for the good ole' blog?  It only means it will probably be swamped with a bunch of slow cooker meals and a minor break - while I get into the swing of things.

Slow cooker meals are a major plus for everyone though.  So don't be heart broken.  :)  I am going to aim to post recipes at least twice a week - so be sure to check back often.

Mexican Chicken Enchilada Pizza

I love pizza.  We are also trying to eat healthier and there isn't much that is really unhealthy about this recipe other than the sour cream, cheese and crust.  But really in moderation it's not terrible.

Buffalo Chicken Pizza

I love spiciness and this hit the spot.  It was covered in blue cheese (per Justin's request) and I love buffalo sauce.  The Asiago slices were a nice touch on top.   Have I got you convinced?  Click HERE for the delicious recipe!

Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup

What better way to solve a cold or a flu then by homemade chicken noodle soup?  This soup is hearty and makes you feel good --- even if you aren't sick!

Slow Cooker Stuffed Peppers

I made these a few weeks ago.  Nothing like a convenient dinner to come home to after a long day at work.  It was very filling and was pretty healthy.   Click the picture for the recipe and my experience:

Slow Cooker Enchilada Soup

Gotta love all day slow cooker recipes.  Although this didn't quite work out for our family, doesn't mean it won't work out for yours.  I still feel the need to share it with you because it was delicious.  So give it a try, you may not be disappointed.

Here's the recipe (click the picture):

6 Month Birthday for the blog!

Not sure how I missed it but I've hit the 6 month mark for the good ole' blog!  Hot damn!  I'm really happy.  I have enjoyed sharing all the recipes I have found and tested for my family and YOU!

Looking forward to what the future brings, the number of visitors has been keeping steady - so thank YOU!  And for all my friends who enjoy trying the recipes I share and providing encouragement and feedback --- thank you :)

Since Justin and I love Mexican food, what better way to celebrate the 6 month mark (I'm technically a few days late) then to share a Mexican recipe!

Stuffed Pizza Burgers

I'm not a big fan of burgers because I'm too impatient to make them, usually.  But I saw this recipe on one of my new favorite blogs (thanks Bethie for showing me her blog!!!),  PointlessMeals (Pointless referring to the Points for Weight Watchers ;)).  She has so many delicious recipes I plan on trying.  This one was very easy and worth doing.... and I plan on making them again sometime soon.

It makes me wonder - do you have any delicious stuffed burger ideas?  This has my mind running - thinking of all the different concoctions to try!

Buffalo Chicken and Bean Chili

I couldn't wait to share this recipe.  In fact I made this for dinner tonight (technically last night since it's 12:18 a.m.).

Don't be mislead by the "Buffalo", it requires Frank's Red Hot Sauce.  But it's not a buffalo sauce.

Also, it uses ground chicken --which was only $2.99 a pound versus $3.99+ for ground beef.  I may have to use chicken more!

Chicken & Cheese Casserole

Remember that saying from the Pantene commercial that says "Don't hate me because I'm beautiful."  Well this recipe is more of a "don't hate me because I'm delicious."

If you want comfort, you have found the right recipe.
