Moving and Easy Meals: Slow Cooker Mac and Cheese

Feel free to get caught up on Alison's week long adventure with preparing dinners ONLY with her crockpot in hopes to make easy meals in her almost empty kitchen before she moves.
Day 1: Salsa Chicken
Day 2: Broccoli and Cheese Soup
Day 3: Pizza in the Crockpot
Day 4: Pork Tenderloin in the Crockpot

I cannot believe that this is Day 5!!! Where has the time gone? Our kitchen is nearly all packed up and I am getting so excited to start organizing in our new house!

Last night’s pork recipe got a 7/10 rating. While it was SUPER easy and fast, I didn’t love the wine flavor (and just to be clear I do LOVE wine) and the meat was a little bit dry. My husband liked it more than I did. I think I’ll stick to the BBQ Pulled Pork recipe that I’ve tried time and again.

To be honest, I almost gave up for tonight as I’m tired and want to completely pack everything in the house and have it done – including the crockpot!!! But…I decided to head back to the site where I got the pizza idea as we liked it so much…maybe they would have something super easy and good once more. Tonight, we will give Slow Cooker Mac and Cheese a try. I particularly like the idea of not having to cook the pasta as our pots are now packed!

With only two more days to go before the big move, I think I may call it quits with this Mac n’ Cheese meal and resort to take-out. I think I did pretty well sticking to a full working week of crockpot meals! Thanks for coming along with me on this challenge and I still hope to hear your ideas and recipes for the future.

Tips & Tricks: Mess Free Kitchen When Using the Kitchen Aid Mixer

I am a messy cook! Ask my husband, my kids or even my sister's dog (who knows all of the spots where I spill when he visits!).

Most of the messes I make are just part of me and the way I cook, but I have learned a few tricks along the way.

One appliance that I use many times a week is my Kitchen Aid Mixer. I love it! I make bread, muffins, pizza dough and more with my mixer.

The Kitchen Aid Mixer can be VERY messy! If you are required to "stir" dry ingredients OR when you are adding dry ingredients to wet ones, the mixer has been known to go "Z-Poof"!

One trick that I have learned is that when you are using any dry ingredients (either on their own or with wet ingredients) to cover the mixer with a tea towel. This prevents the "poof" from landing all over your kitchen!

Here is what it looks like:

Cinnamon Streusel Loaf

I love cinnamon! When I saw this recipe in the March edition of my Canadian Living magazine I had to try it. It's been a HUGE hit with me, my Mom, all the Cinnamon lovers in the house, in fact I've already made it again since!

Recipe -  Cinnamon Streusel Loaf


Thankfully Canadian Living has posted this awesome recipe on their website too, check it out here.


Our Changes


I added 2T of cinnamon vs their suggested 1/2t, I suggest going with a full 2T, it's not over powering - it's just right.

Delicious!  Really recommend this recipe.

Moving and EASY Meals: Crockpot Pork Tenderloin

Feel free to get caught up on Alison's week long adventure with preparing dinners ONLY with her crockpot in hopes to make easy meals in her almost empty kitchen before she moves.
Day 1: Salsa Chicken
Day 2: Broccoli and Cheese Soup
Day 3: Pizza in the Crockpot


Day 4 has arrived! Wow time is flying!

Last night’s pizza was sooooo good! It received another 10/10 from the DH! I would give it a 10/10 for taste but because my slow cooker is smaller than the one featured in the video, I should have halved the dough – it came out WAY too thick.

I may experiment next time though and divide the dough in half and do a layered pizza – just not sure how the dough will cook in the second layer…have you ever tried this? I would love to hear your crockpot pizza stories and have some more recipes like this one to try!

For tonight’s dinner, I decided to look in my freezer to see what I could use for our Monday night meal and realized I had a pork tenderloin – perfect! As I have made Crockpot BBQ Pulled Pork many times, I wanted to try something different.

After a bit of searching, I settled on trying this recipe for Crockpot Pork Tenderloin mainly because I had all of the ingredients. I plan to serve it will an arugula salad and maybe some hash browns that I also found in the freezer (I haven’t quite packed away all of the pans yet…).

THREE MORE DAYS UNTIL WE MOVE!!!

Moving and EASY Meals - Pizza in the Crockpot

Feel free to get caught up on Alison's week long adventure with preparing dinners ONLY with her crockpot in hopes to make easy meals in her almost empty kitchen before she moves.
Day 1: Salsa Chicken
Day 2: Broccoli and Cheese Soup


Day 3 has arrived and the soup was a success! My DH gave it a 10/10 – he actual said that any soup would get a score of 10 from him as he LOVES soup! I ended up adding cheese to mine and none to his – it worked out great. I ended up adding a bit more salt to mine (bad I know…) as I didn’t add much at all before putting the lid on the crockpot.

I should mention that my husband took some of the leftover chicken from the night before and added it to his second helping of the soup. We each got a big bowl, DH had a second and there is one more serving left for lunch today – super helpful that I don’t have to make lunch while we are packing up boxes!

So what to make for night three? We LOVE pizza and so I started to do a search for crockpot pizzas. Many of the recipes that came up required the use of a frying pan and while I confess I haven’t packed that yet…I want to stay true to my original plan which was to make dinners in the crockpot that only require the ingredients and the pot itself! Eventually I found a few recipes that seemed good.

I watched the following video:

The plan is to follow the basic idea from the above video tonight!

For the pizza dough, I just bought fresh pizza dough from the store so that I didn’t have to worry about thawing the dough.

I then added the following for toppings:
  • basic spaghetti sauce
  • turkey pepperoni
  • green pepper
  • black olives (already sliced in a can)
  • mozzarella cheese


My crockpot is smaller than the one featured in the YouTube video, so I hope it turns out – I think it will just be a thicker crust. I also followed the advice on this webpage by placing a tea towel over the crockpot before putting the lid on to help trap the moisture.











Stay tuned…

Moving and EASY Meals - Broccoli & Cheese Soup in the Crockpot

Well it’s Day 2, and to be honest, I sort of panicked this morning as we have to walk the dog and then head out to a play date that usually lasts most of the day! First of all, how on earth would I have time to get a crockpot meal together and second of all, I didn’t even have an idea yet!

Before I get to tonight’s meal, I should report on last night’s Salsa Chicken. It too was a REALLY easy meal to prep. My DH gave it a 10/10 and I gave it about an 8/10. It was good, but it wasn’t as flavourful as I thought. It could have been the salsa I added or that I ‘may’ have messed up and put the crockpot on low instead of high and then changed it and cooked it longer…ooops. I put the chicken in spinach tortilla wraps with some cheddar cheese and olives. Some sour cream and lettuce would have likely added the needed ‘umph’.
EASY Broccoli Cheese Soup in Crockpot

As soon as my LO was down for her nap, I quickly jumped on Pinterest while sipping my morning coffee (ok…I made time for that). I wasn’t having any luck finding something that my stomach was saying ‘YES’ to and so I decided to look up crockpot soups. My DH LOVES soup and I came across a recipe for Broccoli Cheese Soup and liked what I saw. My DH does love soup but he isn’t a fan of cheese (don’t tell him I said that because ever since we have had our LO there’s a new rule in the house – no saying you don’t like something!). I liked how I had all of the ingredients for the soup and that the cheese was an add on after! Some for me and none for the DH! Perfect!!!
EASY Broccoli Cheese Soup in Crockpot

So in about 10 minutes (literally), I put together the meal with very little clean up! I added three mushrooms that I had left over from earlier in the week and as I only had one can of evaporated milk, I added a can of milk using the soup can and another can of milk using the evaporated milk can in order to stick to the amount of liquid that the recipe calls for…it may be too runny but we’ll just have to see.

So, the LO is still napping, dinner is ready and I can head out to walk the dog and play as soon as she wakes! Let’s hope it tastes good!

I would LOVE to hear your suggestions and meal ideas!

Moving and EASY Meals - Salsa Chicken

It is with great excitement that we prepare for our first move as a family!!! Being on maternity leave is a great time as I have had the opportunity to pack during naps (we are blessed with a great sleeper – although it didn’t start out that way!). We are SEVEN days away from the big move and I want to pack as much up as I can now so that we are ready to go on move day.

In the next seven days I plan to only use my crockpot for making meals (dinner) as then I do not need to keep all my other kitchen gadgets out. I am therefore seeking out easy recipes (as healthy as possible) that require very little measuring and preparation.

Tonight I am using a recipe called Salsa Chicken that I found on Pintrest in which it instructed me to throw in 4-6 chicken breasts with a jar of salsa and a packet of Taco seasoning – can’t get any easier than that right!?! Stay tuned.

Banana Blueberry Oat Bread

We were inspired by a recipe over at Inside BruCrew Life so we decided to give it a try. Banana Blueberry Oat Bread - yum!

I love making dessert type breads because they tend to freeze really well and a slice makes an excellent addition to a school lunch.

Banana Blueberry Oat Bread



Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt or sour cream (I like to use greek yogurt for added protein)
  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries, washed and drained


Directions:

Step 1:
Preheat oven to 350℉.

Step 2:
Grease loaf pan and set aside.

Step 3:
With an electric mixer, mix the butter and sugar for a few minutes, until creamy.
Add honey, vanilla, yogurt and banana and cream well.

Step 4:
In a medium sized bowl, mix together dry ingredients.

Step 5:
Add the dry mixture alternately with the milk into the creamed mixture, mixing together in between. End with dry ingredients.

Step 6:
Gently mix in the blueberries.

Step 7:
Bake for approximately 1 hour, until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Family Thoughts:

As per usual, muffins and breads don't last very long in this house! This bread was gone within a day. It was very moist and because of this (and perhaps a few extra blueberries), it did fall apart just a bit, but I would definitely make it again. Everyone enjoyed this delicious, healthy bread.

Taco Cups

I've seen this kind of recipe going around Pinterest, but they all seem to use wonton shells (which is a fun idea) but I went with stuff I have around the house. So here's how I did Taco Cups.

Recipe - Taco Cups 


Ingredients
  • browned ground beef
  • 1 pkg taco spice (and required water)
  • wraps/soft taco shells
  • shredded cheese
  • your favourite taco toppings

Step 1
Mix your browned ground beef with the taco spice and simmer

Step 2
Cut out circles from your wraps to fit in a muffin tin so it goes up the sides (I was not accurate, I just cut one that I thought was good, tried it and then used it to cut out the rest, they don't have to be perfect circles either, gives the cups more character

Step 3
Place wrap circles on a paper towel and microwave for about 10 seconds, then immediately put them into the muffin tins, they are easier to work with when warm

Step 4
In the cups layer shredded cheese, then the taco meat and more cheese on top

Step 5
Bake for approx 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees

Step 6
Remove the cups from the muffin tin and top with your favourite toppings.  We did Mexican rice and sour cream on top.  Other ideas are lettuce, diced tomato, green onion, or salsa.


Family Thoughts



Everyone, even the kids, loved these!  I was a little worried they would fall apart in our hands but they held together really well!!  The shell didn't get too hard either so it wasn't hard to bite into which is great, because if it was I know that would turn the kids off.  A fun twist on taco night, something you can prep a head of time for a party too!


Beefy Nachos

I love nachos, who doesn't? This is a favourite way we make them at home, a nice change up from salsa.

Recipe- Beefy Nachos

Ingredients
  • approx 1/2lbs ground beef, cooked (I buy club packs, brown the whole pack, divide into meal sizes and store in freeze, so I just pull a cooked pack out and defrost for this recipe)
  • approx 2C shredded cheese
  • approx 1/2C chopped green onion
  • 1 bag nacho chips

Step 1
Repeat Layers of nacho chips, ground beef, cheese and green onion in a casserole dish until done

Step 2
Bake at 350 for approx 20 minutes until warmed through and cheese melted

Step 3
Serve hot, with sour cream on the side


Family Thoughts



Everyone loves this dish, an easy warm dish for a crowd!


Kids in the Kitchen

Kids LOVE to cook and bake!


I have never met a child that isn't interested in helping out in the kitchen.

Is it because they want to feel "grown up"?

Is it because they like food and they are interested in making something in the kitchen?

OR

Is it because they simply just want to make a mess?

Providing a child with opportunities to experiment in the kitchen is a terrific opportunity for children of all ages.

Recently, my children have discovered a Tv Show called Taste Buds that features kids who love being in the kitchen. This show actually has kids walking you through how to make various recipes.

The kids are keen and funny, making the show very entertaining as well as educational. They make "kid friendly" dishes that encourage children to be health conscious.

You can watch episodes online or you can tune in to TVO Kids Saturdays at 2:30 to catch an episode.



Another way to get your kids super excited about helping out in the kitchen is to provide them with a cookbook like the DK Mom and Me CookBook by Annabel Karmel!
Mom and Me Cookbook @CdnMomsCook

I absolutely love how this book is set up with a child friendly layout and images. From the images in the ingredients list to the way the text is laid out in the directions, this cookbook is an excellent introduction to cooking in the kitchen for children. This book is colourful and has just the right amount of text to get the job done, but not too much to overwhelm and early reader.

This cookbook features recipes from main dishes to snacks to delicious desserts!

We believe this book would make an excellent birthday gift for a child along with a cute apron and some cooking utensils. How much fun would that be?

What do your children like to make in the kitchen?

Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

I've seen this on Pinterest and thought I'd give it a try, most recipes have you adding oil and spices, but I went complete simple with great results.

Recipe- Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

Ingredients
  • 1-2 bunches of asparagus
  • 1 pack of bacon

Step 1
Wash and trim asparagus

Step 2
Wrap a strip of bacon around each asparagus

Step 3
Bake at 400 for 30-40 minutes

** Why not make this ahead then you can just pop it in the oven when it's time to eat


Family Thoughts 

Hubby and I REALLY loved this, not sure I'll ever be able to make asparagus another way again!  Kids liked the bacon, hopefully they got a piece of asparagus in their mouth by mistake at least..haha


Lemonade Cupcakes

When life gives you lemons...make Lemonade Cupcakes!!

Okay, maybe you won't be selling these at street side stands this summer, but you totally could! Needing a pick-me-up from the end of Winter blahs, I started looking for a bright and sunny cupcake recipe and came across the Pink Lemonade Cupcake recipe from Betty Crocker. I'd seen recipes like this before, but passed them over because they were pink. I'm not a big pink fan and I have a house full to the brim with boys, but inspiration took hold and I changed it up to create Lemonade Cupcakes! The best part? It starts with a boxed cake mix, and I always have plenty of those on hand. The icing I made from scratch, but you could always use premade icing by mixing in the 6 tablespoons of thawed lemonade concentrate.

They were everything I was looking for, they looked and tasted like Spring! They have a sweet but tart zing to them that is fresh and light! These are delightful as they are, but a mini version for a baby or wedding shower would make a really great addition to a treat table! Try them out!



Lemonade Cupcakes

Ingredients
  • 1 box Betty Crocker SuperMoist natural vanilla cake mix
  • 3/4 cup frozen (thawed) lemonade concentrate
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 eggs
  • Heat oven to 350°F. Line muffin tin with paper cups.
  • Beat cake mix, lemonade concentrate, oil, water and eggs on low speed for 2 minutes. Pour into each cup of lined pan about 3/4 full.
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes, cool completely before icing.

Lemonade Buttercream Frosting

Ingredients
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 4 cups icing sugar
  • 6 tablespoons frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • Water
  • Yellow food colouring

Beat Butter until light and fluffy.
Add sugar, vanilla, lemonade concentrate and beat on low speed until well blended. The icing will be thick, add water one teaspoon at a time, beating after each addition, until you get a spreadable consistency.
Add food colouring a little at a time until you have your desired colour. I used Wilton gel colouring in Golden Yellow.
Spread or pipe onto cupcakes.

One Pot Oatmeal Slab Cookies

Growing up, my Mom used to make a version of this recipe on a somewhat regular basis. Because the recipe is so simple, it was one of the very first recipes that I tried out when I was on my own!

One Pot
Few Ingredients
Bake
So easy!

1 Pot Oatmeal Slab Cookies

1 Pot Slab Cookies

Ingredients:
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup oatmeal (large flakes)
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • optional topping of chocolate chips, nuts, smarties, m&ms
Note: Just like any recipe, you can make these using just all purpose flour.

Directions:

Step 1:
Preheat oven to 350℉

Step 2:
Melt butter, brown sugar and vanilla together over low heat in a medium to large sized pot.

Step 3:
Add flour, oatmeal and baking soda and stir until mixed well.

Step 4:
Pour mixture into a greased cookie sheet and press down.
You don't have to use the entire cookie sheet, simply shape the slab into whatever size you like.
If you are using an optional topping, now is when to press it into the top.

Note: I use a large stoneware Pampered chef bar pan that requires no grease and they don't stick!
Thank you Pampered Patty!


Step 5:
Bake for approximately 10-15 minutes or until top is brown.

Family Thoughts

My only "thought" for you on this is to hide them! They disappear way too fast! They are a great peanut free addition as a treat in a school lunch too. If you're smart, you may freeze a few individual portions as soon as they are cooled for this purpose.

Homemade English Muffins

I absolutely LOVE English muffins and I also love baking, so when the book Step by Step Bread arrived at my front door, I knew I just had to try this recipe out!
This book has some wonderful bread recipes with great pictures and easy to follow steps and ingredient lists.

English Muffins Recipe

English Muffins
Original recipe from Step by Step Bread – copyright 2013 DK Publishing

Ingredients:
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (plus extra for dusting)
1 tsp quick rising dried yeast
1 tsp salt
2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted, plus extra for greasing
vegetable oil, for greasing
2 Tbsp ground rice or semolina

Directions:

Step 1:
Pour 1 1/4 cups tepid water into a bowl, sprinkle in the yeast, and leave for 5 minutes to dissolve, stirring once. Mix the flour and salt in a large bowl. Make a well and pour in the yeasst mixture and melted butter. Gradually draw in the flour to form a soft, pliable dough.

Step 2:
Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for 5 minutes. Shape it into a ball and place in a large greased bowl. Cover with oiled plastic wrap and leave in a warm place for 1 hour, or until doubled in size.

Step 3:
Place dough on a floured surface and scatter with most of the ground rice. Knead briefly, and divide it into 10 balls.

Place the balls on a kitchen towel and press them into flattish rounds. Sprinkle with the rest of the ground rice and cover with another kitchen towel. Leave to rise for 20-30 minutes, or until risen.

Step 4:
Heat a large, lidded frying pan and cook the muffins in batches. Cover with the lid and cook very gently for 10-12 minutes, or until they puff up and the undersides are golden and toasted. Turn over and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until golden underneath. Cool on a wire rack.

Family Thoughts:

English Muffins

We absolutely LOVED these authentic English Muffins! We had them with eggs and bacon, however I just read a great idea over at Nuggle Mama's for English Muffins with Melted Cheese and Tomato that sounded absolutely mouth watering! There are so many delicious ways to enjoy English Muffins! They are great split, toasted, and spread with butter and jam, or as the base for eggs Benedict, to name a few.

Hubby loves these the most, I enjoy them too, kids like to eat out the middle and pick at the peppers, it makes a good family meal.  It also make great leftovers and a simple dish to serve to a crowd!


Tips and Tricks: Grated Cheese

I often prep a meal ahead of time if I can, that includes grating the cheese when I have free hands during the day.  Instead of creating another plate to wash, why not grate the cheese right into a baggie.

 
I do this all the time when making our Cheese Biscuits, I also pre measure the bisquick into the bowl I'll be mixing them in and even throw in the right measuring cup so it's available to add the water when it's time to make them.

Have a cooking tip to share?  Let us know in the comments and we will feature it in a future post!

Deviled Eggs

We probably all have eggs on the brain after this past Easter weekend right? I made some deviled eggs to enjoy with our ham dinner, I go very simple, so thought I would share my recipe..

Recipe 

Ingredients 
  • 12 hard boiled eggs
  • approx 1/2C miracle whip
  • chopped green onions
  • paprika
  • dash of salt

Step 1
I did the hard boiled eggs using the oven method (so easy!) and then remove the shells from all your eggs

Step 2
Slice eggs in half, remove yolk and put them in a separate bowl

Step 3
Mix together the egg yolk, green onions and miracle whip, I added a dash of salt here too.

Step 4
Spoon or pipe mixture back into the eggs

Step 5
Sprinkle with paprika, keep in fridge until ready to serve

Alterative
There are many more things you could add to your yolk mixture to dress it up, next time try a teaspoon of dijon!

Family Thoughts 



Everyone loved them, even the kids! I heard a lot of "oh I love deviled eggs, haven't had them in ages", why not bring back an old favourite at your next meal!
