Make your Own Nutella

I know many of you love Nutella – I have absolutely no love for it..(I know.. crazy stuff, right?!) but my 8 year old can smear that stuff on everything. She can also eat it right out of the jar….. needless to say, that jar can last a max of 2 days if I’m not […]

Recipe | Slow Cooker Beef Lasagna Soup

Slow Cooker Beef Lasagna Soup In the Crock Pot

I came across this recipe last week and thought it would work super for us – not only as a quick dinner but also as a Crock Pot Freezer Recipe. The original recipe asks you to use Raw Ground Beef sprinkled on the top before you cover in the crock pot – and I did […]

Recipe | Crockpot Strawberry Jam


Have you picked up Jam lately? The price of Jam is sky high – at least for the variety without High Fructose Corn Syrup…..  Cascadian Farms is what we usually buy but I can’t bring myself to spend $3.39 on a tiny little jar. That’s just outrageous. I have been wanting to try making jam […]
