a little success.

Via Katherine Marie Photography.

Today I tried my hand at adapting one of my favorite recipes to the crock pot.  There is something that is warm and comforting about crock pot meals.  Who doesn't love coming home to the smell of a yummy dinner just waiting to be eaten?  Unfortunately,  sometimes the recipes I've found for slow cookers are either a) too complicated (isn't the point to be able to dump basically everything into it and end up with a meal?) or b) not very tasty (so why bother?)  I'm happy to report that my attempt was a smashing success, and I will most likely be sharing this recipe with you as part of the Roaming Fall Recipe Exchange (hosted by Pretty Mommy) that I mentioned earlier this week.  Until then, check out Torrie's recipes for Butternut Squash Soup and A Perfect Autumn Salad as well as Katie's recipes for Pumpkin Apple Breakfast Muffins and Chicken Pot Pie.  They all look delicious!

And more yumminess in store via the links below.  Enjoy!

  1. So cute and I am loving this memes!

  2. Oh my gosh this is too cute!!

  3. Yes- LOVE the crock pot.

    A couple of weeks ago, when we were really getting into the school/homework routine, I knew that I wouldn't have time (or be in the mood- 'routine changes' don't always go so well with my kids- which can be trying on my mood:) to cook during the mid afternoon/early evening. So, almost every meal that week was a crock pot meal! Taco soup, pot roast, coq au vin, shrimp creole... Loved it, and loved adapting non-crock-pot to crock pot recipes/tossing extra on-hand ingredients in/and the wonderful aroma!

    And you're right, simple is a necessity with CP meals. Thanks for the shout out and looking forward to your recipe:).

  4. Have I told you I am loving this series. Those muffins sounds so yummy. And this picture is too cute. You have to frame this one (maybe in the kitchen) I love it
