Spicy Bean Soup

Today was a crock pot soup kind of day.  If you don’t already know what that means, it means that I’m too lazy to actually cook a meal.  But we’re going to call this being efficient, ok?  And it actually turned out well and made plenty for leftovers!  That means that, in addition to dinner […]

Sweet Potato Quinoa Chili

I’ve kind of been stuck on new ideas for recipes to make.  I can’t ever seem to find a happy medium….either I have a billion ideas that I need to do RIGHT NOW or nothing.  So I asked some friends for suggestions.  And healthy chili was one of those suggestions.  It was perfect timing too.  […]

Slow Cooker Pot Roast Ingredients: Beef or […]
