Blogs to check out

I really love my crockpot. And I've started to use it once a week, usually on Friday nights becuase this is the night I find myself most consistently feeling like, "Let's just grab Chipotle" when Aron gets home from work, regardless if I have a meal planned or not. I have solved this problem by doing a crockpot dish this night and have found it to be very fulfilling and helps us save our "eating out times" for special ocassions.

I found the following link on my friend, Allison's blog. The creator, a woman named Stephanie, has committed to using her crockpot every day this year! She makes everything from apps, to soups, to entrees, to drinks, to desserts, etc. I can't wait to try something new. Click here to view her recipes.

Laurie sent me a link to a great blog, "Flipflops and Applesauce," where the author, a mom, posts crafts and outings she does with her kiddos. Some fun, creative stuff there. She also interviews other mothers from time to time. Click here to see more.


  1. I'll definitely check out that crockpot web site. I always forget that I have a crock pot--I think one of our favorite recipes is the roast beef one. ;)

  2. thanks for leaving the crock pot website. I've been in such a rut with cooking lately and need to step it up.
    If you need an easy recipe:
    3-4 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
    1 can whole cranberry sauce
    1 bottle BBQ sauce
    1 chopped onion
    cook for 4-6 hours
    I served it over rice and it was even a hit with the kids and husband!

  3. Flip flops & applesauce is a great blog! i frequent it often. :) I love using my crock pot too. :)
