Chicken & Brown Rice (Slow Cooker)

chickenbrownrice_thumb.jpg

Years ago I used a chicken and rice recipe similar to this that cooked in the oven.  It contained white rice, canned condensed soup,  and onion soup mix. This version uses brown rice, homemade condensed soup, and onion.  It is still a delicious basic filling recipe that my guys enjoy.  I used poultry seasoning, but […]

Curry is not a spice I have been known to cook with, but after seeing a number of tasty looking recipes that used curry, I recently picked some up at the grocery store.  I knew my husband wouldn’t be thrilled with it, but he has been known to learn to like new foods and flavors.  […]

Crock Pot Italian Chicken

A couple of weeks ago I watched this quick and easy meals video at Balancing Beauty and Bedlam.  I really liked the idea of buying meat in large packs and freezing some along with other ingredients so it’s ready to cook.    The options are open to your creativity. Unfortunately, we can’t just dump in a […]
