meat dip

What goes great with game day? Great munchies if I may say so.

That's something this family can agree on! I'll have no problem doing it all again for the next game! This post was sponsored by Wish-Bone® and I was compensated to write it.

Things have been crazy busy lately. I'm sure you can relate! Quite some time ago I picked up a Taste of Home Magazine … [Read more...]

Make pumpkin puree from slow cooked pumpkins #slowcooker #crockpot

Ah. One of the best things about fall has to be pumpkin.  I was so excited about trying to cook pumpkin in my slow cooker that I started looking for them back in August. Needless to say I came up empty handed. More than a few store workers thought I was a strange bird for even asking.

Totally worth the effort to have a homemade start to our morning beyond just a day.

Step Up Your Slow Cooking with these Google Play Apps
