Crock Pot Lentil Soup

I’m working on a series of recipes catered to the Arbonne diet program. If you’ve never heard of it, it’s a lot like Paleo. It’s gluten free, dairy free, soy free, sugar free (well no added sugar anyway), vinegar free. It actually follows a lot of Michael Pollan’s ideas in …

Crock Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup

I’ve been trying to make more soups lately because it’s been annoyingly cold out lately and soups reheat so well. I went to the store and loaded up on all things fake Mexican like enchilada sauce and decided to give this soup a go! It turned out great so I …

Crock Pot Jambalaya

Recently I was thinking about the restaurant Heaven on Seven in Chicago. It’s amazing Cajun food (for the North anyway) and they have some killer jambalaya. I thought it would be fun to try my best to make my own. I’m not going to pretend that I know much about …

Crock Pot Broccoli and Beef

Hey everyone! Happy February! I’ve been busy hibernating so far this month. How about you all? I gave up booze for the month and it’s been really a lot more difficult than anticipated. It doesn’t help that we are provided with free beer at work on Fridays. I look forward …

Crock Pot Black Bean and Mushroom Fajita Chili

Crock Pot Pulled Pork with Honey Mustard Sauce
