Minimalistic Meal: Crockpot Ginger BBQ Shredded Pork.

Second Day Chicken Soup 

Here lately, my husband and I have been obsessed with roasting chicken in our Crock-Pot. At our local Aldi, we can buy a nice sized whole chicken for about six bucks. I simply rinse it, season it to my desire, and throw it in my Crock-Pot on high for about four hours. To keep the…

BBQ Bacon Meatloaf Pie

Meatloaf, either you love it or hate it. For me meatloaf is the perfect comfort food, only to be even more perfected by a big serving of mashed potatoes or mac and cheese. My mom always made her meatloaf with bacon on top with a perfect caramelized glaze if catsup. This is how I have…

Fall Sweet Potato and Apple Hash with Kale and Quinoa

I love a good potato hash, but since hubby and I have been cutting back on bread and other starches, I’ve been eating more sweet potatoes.  Full of vitamins and a hint of sweetness, sweet potatoes add just the right amount of color and contrast to the green kale and the red quinoa.  Nothing says…
