Slow Cooker Chicken and Dressing

Affiliate Link Disclosure

I’m honestly a fan of making my own dressing or stuffing with Bell’s Seasoning and slightly stale artisan bread, but that type of stuffing isn’t something that I’m up for on the typical week night. Particularly after the holiday season.  However, pre-packaged stuffing and dressing can be an awesome addition to your slow cooker when you want some of the flavors of a holiday dinner without all of the work that comes with cooking turkey.  This recipe for slow cooker chicken and dressing could be made with turkey, if you really were craving those Thanksgiving flavors.  However, it also works as a great, easy slow cooker meal when you are looking for something easy to make for you family.Looking for an easy dinner idea that has the flavors of Thanksgiving without all of the work? Try this easy Slow Cooker Chicken and Dressing Recipe!

Hibachi Style Chicken Fried Rice

I have a weakness for Hibachi restaurants.  I don’t think that I ever tire of them.  When the Monkey was a month old, we took the entire family to hibachi to celebrate the Big One’s 10th birthday.  Lots of fond memories and family celebrations have happened at hibachi restaurants.  I love getting fried rice when we go, and I’ve finally learned how to make at home hibachi style chicken fried rice that is just as tasty and satisfying as any I’ve eaten at a restaurant.  Plus, it is an easy weekday dinner idea and makes a ton, so the Big One’s gigantic appetite will be fully satisfied.

Warm Crab and Artichoke Dip

We aren’t big football people around here. Nope, we tend to watch basketball theses days.  However, football is pretty exciting around Atlanta this year since the Atlanta Falcons are headed to the Superbowl.  The Big One has been talking about what he wants to do for the Big Game, and given the amount that he eats, ultimately that turns back to the menu.  I love warm Crab and Artichoke dip, particularly when I’m going out to eat.  However, I thought it would be a great and easy recipe to make for a tasty game day appetizer, so I worked on creating the perfect recipe for warm crab and artichoke dip.  It is so yummy that you can basically eat it out of the bowl with a spoon!

Homemade Mongolian Beef Recipe

There’s a Chinese restaurant near our house that I have been going to for as long as I can remember. Come to think of it, I probably had a birthday party or two there when I was a young child. I love their Mongolian Beef, and even if I’m getting another favorite entree, we always get an order of it because the Mellow Man and the Big One love it too. Several months ago, the Mellow Man decided to learn how to make his own Mongolian Beef.  (As you may recall, he likes cooking too!)He’s perfected and finalized his recipe, and I think that it’s finally ready to share with you. I’m not sure that it’s quicker than take out, but we are now able to have tasty homemade Mongolian Beef any night of the week without having to wait for our take-out order.
