Slow Cooker Brisket | Enjoying this Journey...

Slow Cooker Brisket

A couple of weeks back, I pulled a brisket out of the fridge and my initial thought was to prep it for the oven (see that recipe here). A long to-do list was looming and my motivation (and energy) wasn’t exactly up for babysitting a brisket. I pulled out my slow cooker and quickly threw together some aromatics that could… Read more →

Mushroom Onion and Beef Soup

Mushroom, Onion, and Beef Soup

I was prepping some ingredients in the kitchen recently, almost laughing at myself. Years ago, if you were to say I’d be making a mushroom soup for myself to eat {not just the fam}, I’d say you had lost your ever loving mind. But there I was.

Party Meatballs | Enjoying this Journey...

Party Meatballs

You know those SAD (standard American diet) party meatballs, right? The sauce is made with store bought chili sauce and cranberry sauce. You simply throw a bag of frozen meatballs into a slow cooker along with the sauces and wait for the party meatball magic happen. Since we were hosting a simple {who am I trying to kid?} Thanksgiving feast… Read more →
