Stuffed Pepper Soup

Stuffed Pepper Soup
Everyone I have made this soup for loves it! It is super simple to make, it makes the whole house smell divine, and it is perfect on a cold evening for dinner! I like beans and rice in my soup, but our son doesn't, so, I always cook a small pot of

pinto beans

and the rice separate; so, for this soup, you will need ..

Jalapeno Popper Quesadillas

Jalapeno Popper Quesadillas
Quesadillas make a fun, quick snack from time to time, and can even be made some-what healthy! My family loves Mexican food and all things spicy, even the little ones, so, if we can jalapeno's to it, we love it! This recipe looks super yummy to me and I am thinking I may makes these for dinner tonight!

Jalapeno Popper Dip

This recipe is AMAZING! I made it for our family Christmas party 2015 and it was a huge hit! It was so creamy and yummy! I made mine a couple of days ahead of time and put it in the freezer, so it was super spicy {I also used fresh jalapenos} when we ate it and it was so very good! If your looking for something 'different' and something everyone will love, you have found it right here!

Pepper Steak

My family loves it when I cook pepper steak; I haven't ever cooked in the crock pot before, honestly, I've always used the electric skillet, but since I have a new love for my crock pot, I can't wait to try cooking it using the crock pot! Pepper steak is a yummy staple at our house on cold evenings!

Slow Cooker Lasagna

Slow Cooker Freezer Meal Lasagna
UPDATE! Made this yesterday and my family LOVED it! It was super simple to make, my 5 year old granddaughter helped me; everyone enjoyed it, including my 18 month old granddaughter and 2 and a half year old grandson, they ate 3 servings each! For a quick, easy Italian meal, I highly recommend this one!!!! My family loves lasagna, but no one loves a hot kitchen around here! I haven't tried this recipe yet, nor have I made lasagna in the crock pot, but, this one is high on my list to try soon! The source for this recipe can be found at the end of the this post!

Un-Fried Chicken

Un-Fried Chicken
My husband LOVES fried chicken. He loves it so much, that, if I'd let him, he would eat it every day! His favorite fried chicken is home cooked, deep-fried in a cast iron skillet full of lard, just like his grandma used to cook. Unfortunately for my husband, fried chicken is not healthy, and is probably one of the causes of his health problems; so, I get to be the 'bad guy' and tell him no, almost daily! So, I love recipes like this, 'healthy' fried chicken; it makes him happy, and doesn't raise his cholesterol too much, which makes me happy!

Tomato Cheese Tart with Spinach-Pecan Pesto

Tomato Cheese Tart with Spinach-Pecan Pesto
I love tomatoes, I love fresh pecans from my pecan tree, and I love tarts! This made my mouth water when I first saw it; when I see this recipe, the first thing that comes to mind is brunch with a good friend, out on the patio on a cool, Texas mid-morning. I love tomatoes fresh from the garden, the big, plump red ones, and the yummy yellow ones {sorry, I don't know the different names of tomato varities}; I'm ready to eat! The link where I found this recipe is at the bottom of this post.
