Slow Cooker Italian Roast Beef #ImprovCookingChallenge

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it 1,000 times. I am not a fan of winter. It’s cold and gross and makes me crave comfort foods that are usually chock full of calories and other unhealthy things. But this Italian Beef Roast only has a few ingredients, is really […]

Mashed Potatoes for a Crowd

I’m back with another recipe for Holiday Side Dish week! I’ve probably mentioned this a million times but my mom has never been a great cook. But one thing that she always did was make homemade mashed potatoes. I honestly didn’t even know that you could get “mashed potatoes” from […]

#FestiveFoodies: Crock Pot Turkey Breast and Gravy

  I used to think that February was the winter month of bitter cold, living here in Maryland, but this winter has proven that January can be just as cold. For the last 10 days or so we’ve had temperatures in the single digits but then it decided to warm […]

Spicy Two-Bean Turkey Chili

I haven’t done very well with keeping you updated about the new eating plan I am following or even blogging in general lately. Sorry about that! I’ve been super busy at work and by the time that I get home, making dinner requires all of the effort and then some […]

Marsala Beef Stew

Beef stew is one of my favorite winter dishes. It’s hearty and warm and is the perfect comfort food still filled with veggies so you can feel like you’re eating healthy. I love the combination of mushrooms and beef together and was excited to try out this recipe. It does […]

Crock Pot Apple Butter

The first time I ever had apple butter was after Tom and I had visited an orchard. He loves the stuff and picked up a jar of it while we were there. I’d never heard of it before and was interested to see just what this stuff tasted like. Let’s […]
