Are you looking for my personal recommendations?
There are some recipes that I’m constantly making. They are the recipes I keep coming back to for whatever reason. Maybe they’re super easy. Maybe my family loves them. Maybe they make me feel healthy. I hope they’ll become your personal favorites too! (click on the picture to get the recipe)
I like to share tips on my site like cooking in the slow cooker if you’re going to be gone all day and out of the box ways to use your slow cooker and you won’t want to miss the Working Mom’s Ultimate Guide to Dinner
What kind of slow cooker do you recommend? I personally own several different slow cookers but my favorite is a 6 quart oval Kitchenaid slow cooker.
Where can I buy your cookbooks? If you’d like info on my cookbooks and how to buy them go here.
Lastly, for a behind the scenes look at what I’m doing you can follow me on Instagram. My latest thing is making cooking videos with my kids and husband. If you’d like to see all of those make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel.
Again, thanks so much for stopping by! Sure do appreciate it 🙂
P.S. And also you should probably join all the foodie fun on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest!
I made the Instant Pot Greek Chicken Lemon Rice Soup and it was wonderful. The only things was that when I went to do the quick release the starch in the rice, I think, caused all kinds of messy spewing. Next time I will rinse the rice (maybe a tip for the recipe)? Thank you — I love your blog 🙂
I am a contributor for the Cedar Rapids Moms Blog, a site with the City Moms Blog Network, and am doing a collection featuring family favorite Instant Pot recipes. I was wondering if you would be okay with me using your Instant Pot Broccoli Chicken Mac and Cheese recipe. I would use a picture, and of course link back to your blog!
Please let me know if that works,
That’s fine as long as you link back to my site for the recipe.

Hello there, I was very happy to download your book and I cannot wait to use it, I’d like to ask if you have any books for diabetics.
Hi Margaret, I’m glad you are happy about the book. I’m sorry that I don’t have a book for diabetics.
Could I ask what kind of grater is used in the gyro video and where I might get one? Thanks
It’s a salad master. Very expensive, it was a gift. But you can order a knock off one for pretty cheap on amazon.

I’m a rank amateur cook at best. I’ve tried two of your instant pot recipes so far and they’ve been a hit. I look forward to trying quite a few more. Also I’d like to see recipes for two people. I’m not that good adjusting recipes as I’ve found they don’t always come out.
I’m glad you have had some success! Good to know about adjusting the recipes! Thanks for the suggestion.

Hi, love your recipes, do you have a 365 pressure cooker book? I bought 5 Ingredients slow cooker and 365 slow cooker. Do you have any others books?
I din’t know where to post this question.
Hi Paulina, I don’t have a pressure cooking cookbook yet but I think it will be my next project 🙂
Hi Karen. Looking forward to using a lot of your recipes. I began the crockpot way in 1967 (when crocks were not remove able). A gift from my mother-in-law. Great item!! I have several sizes now . Also, known as “Crockpot Queen” to family and friends. They will always get one from me. I am almost 75, a breast cancer survivor. The pot was a big help during that time. Looking forward to your recipes. God bless you and your family.
Hi Joan, thanks for sharing! It’s so fun to hear how the crockpot helps people 🙂
Ron Sipus says
I am new to your website and look forward to receiving the daily information. I wonder if you can answer a question for me? When preparing a receipe in the crockpot that calls for uncooked chicken or turkey is there a way to substitute precooked turkey (thanksgiving leftover) in place of the uncooked without over cooking the already cooked turkey or chicken?
Hi Ron, yes you can totally substitute the cooked turkey/chicken. Just put in the amount that you think equals the amount of uncooked chicken. You probably won’t need to cook as long since the poultry is already cooked.
The beef gyros slow cook recipe if I want to triple the meat do I triple all the rest of the ingrediance?
yes that would be perfect
Is there a way to make this recipe without a crock pot? http://www.365daysofcrockpot.com/recipe-for-slow-cooker-cheesy-unstuffed/
Sure. This is how I would do it:
Combine meat, green pepper, salsa, cumin, chili powder, black beans, tomatoes, green chiles, cooked shells, and cubed cream cheese in a bowl. Fold together so the ingredients are all incorporated. Pour into a 9×13 pan. Top with grated cheese. Bake in an oven that has been heated to 350 for 40 minutes, or until heated through.

I wanted to ask for your buffalo ranch meatballs that you make in the slow cooker can you use ground beef or it only works best with turkey ground, also do you need to spray the slow cooker with cooking spray before you place the meatballs in. Hope to hear from you soon
you could definitely use a lean ground beef and it would work fine. Spraying the slow cooker is a great idea it will make for easier clean up!

Karen – I love the new design. This is such a great post. A perfect way to showcase your recipes.

Thanks so much. I like the new design too 🙂
Do you have nutrition facts for your recipes ?
[email protected] says
no I don't. But there is this cool thing called yummly. When you "yum" a recipe (there is a little red/orange button at the end of each post) it will take you to a page that gives you the nutrition info! It's so cool! Here is an example from my yummly page:
Or you can always use this tool: http://www.caloriecount.com/cc/recipe_analysis.php

I love your site. I have made so many of your dishes and they have all been a hit. If I win I would like the 8 quart instant pot. I’ve been wanting one for a long time and budget has not allowed for it. Thank you Kelli
