I have gotten some wonderful recipes while visiting the blogs of others. There are so many wonderful recipes for muffins, breads, cakes, and cookies, not to mention main meals. I haven't tried them all yet, but the ones that I have tried, I've been very happy with the results.
Lately I had been looking for some good recipes for my slow-cooker. I love using a slow-cooker because you can prepare everything in the morning, and then just go about your day (and usually there's just one pot to clean up)! I usually put the slow-cooker away for the Summer as we cook on the grill outdoors more often then, and I need the precious counter space it takes up to set up for parties, but once Fall rolls around the big pot comes back out and I start hunting for recipes.
You don't have to look very far when you are blogging. I came across all sorts of good recipes for soup, and loin of pork (one of my favorites!), and chicken, and beef.
I especially look for EASY when searching recipes, and I came across a great recipe for pot roast thanks to Jane at Frugal Fine Living, her blog is a font of information with many tips on how to live a frugal life. You can see her recipe here.
This is what I used:
And this is what I used:
(Okay, this time I did have another pot to clean because I made egg noodles for those who refuse to eat vegetables! And I made a substitution to the original recipe, instead of using cooking sherry I used cranberry/cherry juice [found in a recipe book].)
The results were fantastic! Everyone said they loved it and they really did all seem to enjoy it.
And we had peach cobbler for dessert. I got this easy recipe from Barb at Bella Vista, Barb's blog has wonderful recipes and she shares her many creative decorating and crafting ideas with her readers too. You can get her peach cobbler recipe here.
Here are my ingredients:
And here were the results:
(I made a bigger cobbler than the recipe called for so I did a recipe-and-a-half)
I don't eat peach cobbler, but everyone that did eat it said that it was good! And I promise you that it was a very easy recipe to make!
I still have many more recipes left to try, and once I do I'll be posting the results for you!
