Crock pots have so many uses, especially around the holidays. They can serve as another “oven”, keep things warm while you are busy preparing other dishes, or serve up the best hot beverages ever tasted. Spice up your holidays with this amazing recipe for Divine Holiday Tea (made in a crock pot). It’s perfect to serve at a holiday party or get together with the adults in your life. The sweetened condensed milk is awesome with the chai spices!
There is a local restaurant near us that makes the most delicious chicken pot pie, I order it every time we eat there! Last spring we ended up ordering dinner to-go from this restaurant, and of course, I ordered my usual chicken pot pie. That’s when I discovered it wasn’t actually a pot pie–it was a puff pastry with the usual pot pie filling poured over the top! That’s when I thought…oh I can totally do that!
So I bought puff pastry that next week at the grocery store. Did you notice that I said this happened last spring? I kept thinking about it, and not making it. I don’t really know why. I even tried searching to find a recipe like what I wanted to create and I couldn’t find one! Last night I finally decided to go for it and the results were fantastic! Read More
Last week I just had to try this recipe from my friend Crystal at Mommifried. I love turkey and it’s one of those meals that I know my kids would eat without a fight, even the picky one and the local grocery store had turkey breasts on sale. Score!
And what goes with turkey and gravy better than mashed potatoes? Nothing, that’s what! My daughter requested these mashed potatoes and that made me realize I had not yet shared this recipe with you all, so here I am doing it now. Read More

Fall is officially here! In New England, that means crisp, cool air, majestic colors lighting up the roadside, and apples, apples, and more apples! It’s apple picking season and we got our journey on a few weekends ago. We also picked up some organic cider, which is made locally, literally a minute from our house. I used a good amount to whip up one of our fall favorites, Crock Pot Hot Spiced Apple Cider. Read MoreTagged in: apple cider, apples, crock pot, drinks, fall, Food, recipe
