1. Remember when I was really hankering for a crock-pot? We got one this weekend! Tommy and I are excited to start cooking things in it. I spent some of this weekend looking at crock-pot recipes online. There are a couple that I am really eager to try, one of them being French onion soup. 🙂 [Read more…]

Namely because it seems to be the perfect thing to have to cook weeknight meals, when the last thing you want to do when you walk in the door is cook dinner, but the first thing you want when you walk in the door is dinner. It also probably doesn’t help that a lot of my friends are writing and talking about all these tasty crock pot meals they are cooking. [Read more…]
