Do you notice anything different???

Did you notice anything different about my blog today?  No, it didn't get a haircut.  No, it didn't lose weight.  No, it doesn't have a new outfit.

It got a facelift!  A whole brand spanking new design :)  Do you like it?  Personally, I'm in love!  
Let me show you around!

Start at the top.  If you're new, you will probably want to click on the pink button at the top left-hand side of the page.  This will take you to a page where I share the easiest recipes, the most popular recipes, and my personal recommendations.  I also tell you a little about how I got started, about my cookbooks, some kitchen tips and when you can find me on social media.

Slow Cooker Smoked Sausage with Peppers, Mushrooms, Orzo and Parmesan

I participated in a Influencer Activation for Guy Fieri Sausage. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

I really love meals like this!  The meat, veggies and starch are all combined into one dish for a quick and easy all-in-one meal.  Not in love with orzo?  Swap out the pasta for rice or quinoa or make it with spaghetti squash for a ultra low carb meal.

Slow Cooker Quinoa Risotto (no stir!)

I tried a little experiment the other day...making a risotto-type dish out of quinoa instead of rice.  It worked out awesome!  The best part is that it's made in the slow cooker and there's no stirring, unlike regular risotto which is really labor intensive.
No Stir Slow Cooker Quinoa Risotto is a great side dish or dinner!  So easy and so comforting!
