Crock Pot Saag with Tofu

Hello out there! Sorry for the delay in posting – it’s been quite a summer. I left Seattle shortly after the 4th of July and have moved in with M in La Crosse. I took a new job at Kaplan Professional Education a couple miles from where we live. Lots of exciting but overwhelming changes! ...

Crock Flops

Hello out there! It’s been a while since I’ve posted, I know. The reason for that is that I have been creating some serious Pinterest Fail-worthy food lately. I think it’s unfair to only share my successes, so I am sharing some of my embarrassing kitchen train wrecks of the last month. You can’t learn ...

Crock Pot Butternut Squash Soup

Hello out there! Now that I’ve emerged from my House of Cards Season 2 binge, I’ve got another really good recipe for you this evening. I adapted this one from a Betty Crocker recipe for a dutch oven. I wasn’t sure how it’d go, but it turned out really well! What appealed to me most ...

Crock Pot Vegetarian Pesto & Walnut “Meatballs”

Ok, I know what you are thinking – vegetarian meatballs? Hear me out – these turned out AWESOME. I’ve officially been vegetarian for one month now and I’m going strong. I thought I was going to eat some meat occasionally, but I really don’t have any interest. It probably isn’t helping that I’m in the ...

Crock Pot Falafel & Yogurt Garlic Sauce 4

Hello again! Second post in one week – look at me go! The Seahawks won again, which means I’ll be hibernating until after the Super Bowl. Ugh. Between Chris Kluwe’s experiences with bigotry and all this other general ridiculousness, I’m not feeling the NFL. The hyper-masculinity of the sport has always kind of been a ...

Crock Pot Spinach & Mushroom Lasagna with Alfredo Sauce

Hello out there! Happy New Year! As promised, M and I have been planning all kinds of fun vegetarian slow cooker recipes that we’re excited to share with you! Last week, I tried another one of America’s Test Kitchen recipes. I have to say I’m not overly impressed with a lot of what it’s in ...

Hello my Crock Pot friends! Once again, long time no see. It’s been a very busy fall/winter. I will be posting more in the near future because now that the holidays are over I’m going to be cooking more again — cooking for two in fact. Good lord, no, I am NOT preggers. I am ...

Crock Pot Chinese Hot Pot Soup

Hello out there! Once again, I am sorry for the lack of posting. I moved across the country in October from Chicago to Seattle. I’ve been out here a month and I am loving it so far! I’ve upgraded from studio living to a spacious one bedroom with a fantastic kitchen. It’s all been great- ...

Crock Pot Black Bean Enchiladas 2

Hello my friends! Wow, summer got away from me! Sorry about my super long absence. I’ve been out and about and on vacation rather than in the kitchen. I’m trying to get back on track this week. I’ve been meaning to make this recipe for a while now and I finally did it tonight! Enchiladas ...

Crock Pot Chicken Noodle Soup 1

Hello out there! I’ve got a rockin’ recipe to share with you today and a story of how this recipe accidentally came to be. On Sunday, I set out to create my very own Lo Mein recipe. I was very excited about this Lo Mein so I treked to the grocery store for some Lo ...
