Three of my favorite foods are bacon, tomatoes and artichokes. So how could I go wrong with this dish? This flavorful chicken and sauce is served over rice, barley, noodles or mashed potatoes and then I topped mine fresh, diced tomatoes for a little color. This is a yummy meal to serve a hungry family on any night of the week!

This recipe for Four Bean Pork and Tomatillo Chili is sponsored by Hurst's Hambeens.
As always all opinions are 100% my own.Cheddar, Bacon and Bean Soup and before that I made the Smokey 15 Bean Soup with Sausage. These soups are just so hearty and filling and not to mention they serve a crowd (or provide leftovers for lunch the next day). I also appreciate the fact that I'm cooking dried beans from scratch instead of opening a can. Not that there's anything wrong with opening a can...just sometimes it really feels good to start from scratch.

I randomly created this recipe for barbecue chicken spaghetti a week ago and every one loved it so much I had to make it again and put it on the blog! For some reason my kids don't really eat spaghetti with traditional spaghetti sauce. I think it's weird and quite annoying, especially since they are not picky eaters at all. For heaven's sakes, they'll eat my mushroom, lentil concoctions but not spaghetti? What? That's weird. Anyhow, that's how this recipe was created...I wanted to make spaghetti but try a different sauce that perhaps everyone would enjoy. I had some of this crockpot shredded chicken on hand and decided it would be perfect. Let me tell you how much I love this chicken. It really is so perfect by itself or used in recipes that call for cooked chicken. I love making a huge batch of it and then freezing portions of it in individual plastic freezer bags and then I always have it ready and on hand. The cooked chicken is then tossed with bbq sauce and layered with the spaghetti and a sour cream/cottage cheese mixture and then of course topped with a healthy dose of cheddar. I hope your family loves this recipe as much as mine did! Enjoy!

Another cranberry recipe! I can't get enough of the tart little berries that are found in abundance this time of year. I know you can buy cranberries in the frozen section year round but I like them best fresh. This time I decided to pair the cranberries with apples. And let me just say, it was an excellent decision! The tartness of the cranberries pairs so well with the sweetness of the apples. And what says fall better than apples and cranberries? And the best part of these muffins is the CRUNCHY crumb topping. Now, you're wondering "how did I get it to be so crunchy?" Grape Nuts cereal! Oh my, I was so proud of myself to think of that. I was hoping that the muffins would be as good as I was thinking they would be...and I was RIGHT! The soft, crumbly, tart muffins paired so so so well with the crunchy, sweet, crumbly topping. I am excited to use Grape Nuts in my future baking. I'm thinking I want to try them next in a slow cooker apple crisp recipe. If anything can stay crisp for a long time it's Grape Nuts. I'll let you know if it works out (maybe I'll even throw some cranberries in the apple crisp! Oh yeah, baby)!

This time of year it's fun to make lots of dips and the slow cooker is the perfect implement to cook and serve them in. So whether it's for your football-watching party or to bring to a holiday party remember to use your slow cooker this season for all your entertaining needs! This chicken taco dip was whipped up the other day with random items I had in my house. It turned out super creamy, thick and flavorful.
