Slow Cooker Mahi Mahi Tacos

Two weeks ago when I posted a photo on Instagram of my Mahi Mahi taco crockpot experiment I had several requests for the recipe. I hesitate to share new recipes with you guys until I have actually tried the dish myself. I would hate to post a recipe and have it turn out to be flop! I am here today to tell you that this recipe is most definitely NOT a flop. I have found that the secret to cooking lean meats and fish in the crockpot is to start with... Read More

Honesty is the Best Policy

Thank you for your words of support and encouragement yesterday. It’s nice to hear that I am not alone. However, yesterday’s post was not intended to be a woe, is me plea.

Crockpot Meal: Pork Tenderloin with Cranberry Sauce

Since Luke’s birth, I have struggled to get nutritious meals on the table by 6:15 PM every day. Simply adding one other person’s (unpredictable) needs to the mix has thrown me for a loop. Some weeks I am very diligent about shopping and meal planning, while others are haphazard at best. I have found that with a little forethought, I can employ my crockpot to slow cook meals for me. It has been a real blessing. This allows me to make breakfast... Read More
