3 Ingredient Chicken Recipes for the Slow Cooker

Who is ready for easy dinners made in the slow cooker??  I know I am.  The start of school and sports is keeping my family very busy.  Recipes like this are lifesavers sometimes!!  Here are TEN 3-INGREDIENT CHICKEN RECIPES MADE IN THE SLOW COOKER (as shared on Parade Magazine‘s website).

Ten 3-Ingredient Easy Dessert Recipes

Also shared on Parade was this collection of goodies:  TEN 3-INGREDIENT DESSERT RECIPES.  Have you ever been assigned to make a dessert for an event and you just don’t have the time or the money to make it??  This post is for you.  Easy recipes with just 3-ingredients each.  3-ingredients makes it a more economical recipe too!

milk chocolate cake

My RecipeBoy has been stirring up dessert in the kitchen again.  He shared this recipe for a tender MILK CHOCOLATE CAKE w/ A GOOD, RICH LAYER OF CHOCOLATE GLAZE.  Check out the recipe on his blog >

kitchen skills by age

This has been circulating around the internet, and I thought it was pretty interesting.  My son is 13, HE HAS A FOOD BLOG, and he is not doing many of the things on this list!!  How about your kids?

bacon mug

A bacon mug filled with melted cheese, anyone?  I sure hope this was just for fun.  I’m crazy about bacon and cheese and everything, but… gross.

wine forecast

I saw this on my friend Amy’s Facebook page (Very Culinary blog) >  And it’s pretty much how I’ve been feeling lately!!

Football Food

Are you ready for some football??  We are definitely ready for football at my house.  We root for a few teams around here:  Chargers, Patriots, and the 49ers!  Here is some good football grub that I have spotted for you!


I’ve been eyeing all of these super-expensive boots from Allen’s Boots.  I’m not sure I can drop that much cash on shoes right now, but a girl can dream, right?  Do you like any of the ones I picked out?  I tend to be a rustic-boot kind of girl, and I live in the mountains.  So these choices kind of make sense.

Scarf with wings

This crazy “bird” scarf is for animal lovers… or something like that.  I’m not much of a scarf person unless I’m fashioning it around my neck to look trendy in the fall/winter.  Maybe someone out there will like these.  There are some other bird scarves shared here too: These Beautiful Scarves Will Give You Wings.

And finally… here is my favorite guy again:  Jimmy Fallon.  He paired up with Adam Levine to do a fun skit called, “Wheel of Musical Impressions.”  Watch!  It’ll make you giggle.

    Oh, I love that list of cooking by age. My son is only 3 but he does love helping me make me pour the chips in and scoop out the dough. Most of the chips end up on the floor and I have to re-scoop the dough but hopefully some day hehe 🙂

    love this post! (and all of them in the series..actually all your posts!!) 🙂

    I love that age list for cooking skills! Something to shoot for. My 3 year old technically rolls bread/pie dough with me…until I shoo her away and redo it because it looks like she stomped on it.

    Thanks for all of the good recipes, and I like your son’s website, too. 🙂
    I need to get my little man in the kitchen more often.

    I love both recipe collages = the boots are all cute! – and the bacon mug with cheese is different to say the least.
    However, my main comment is about the bird scarves. I adore birds, and I think the scarves are very unique, colorful, and beautiful. If I was a bit younger, and had a less chunky bod, I’d love to have one! I’ve always been one to like the quirky stuff!

    Thanks for sharing my Pull Apart Pizza! LOVE the 99% chance of wine photo. I can totally relate. 🙂

    Love the whole post, the slow cooker ideas I know most people love stuff like that, the easy desserts, those boots…yes, one of each. I know you love boots and that’s your thing, you and Marla both, so do what makes you happy 🙂 And wine forecast, love.

    The young cook ages 6-8, my daughter is 7 and has lived thru 5.5 years of food blogging and 2 cookbooks and she cannot do those tasks. Actually I get questions from readers about items in that list. Mixing cookie dough is actually something I am asked about all the time … if it was so easy, I’d have a bazillion less questions to answer every day and everyone’s cookies would turn out perfectly every time 🙂

    What a great collection! Thanks for gathering it all together in one place! And thanks for including my recipe too! Sharing!

    You know I love bacon, too. But that mug? No. Just… no. I watched that Jimmy Fallon clip a few times now and I keep laughing. The song titles are funny enough, but then they start singing. Epic! Great collection of links, as always, Lori!

    Thanks for featuring my tater tots! I am kind of intrigued by the bacon mug with cheese and drooling over that chocolate cake!

    That list about cooking by age is a good wake up call for me…my boys need more kitchen time! They have minimal experience, probably because when I’m in the kitchen it’s my “me time”. 🙂 Those Allen boots are gorgeous, and I’ll be dreaming right along with you!
