3 Ingredient Slow Cooker Beef Teriyaki with Pineapple

Made this Crock Pot recipe, for dinner this past week. I know the title says 3-ingredient, but I felt it needed more to it, then just beef, pineapple and sauce. So to suit our tastes, I added a mixture of frozen mixed vegetables and broccoli to it. It was your basic dump and set recipes, which was great!! I had it cook on high for about 4hrs, then added the frozen vegetables and let it cook for another 30-45mins. The stew beef I used started to fall apart, which was fine by us, especially our son. The flavour was good, though I wonder if a bit more sauce would have worked too. Will definitely try it again though, with some adjustments to see how it turns out next time.

Hope Everyone Had A Happy Easter Weekend!!

How cute are these Easter treats?? I didn’t get to make the treat I wanted, but will get to it soon enough 🙂

Our son spent the afternoon ‘hunting’ for eggs at our home ❤

And as he was having fun, we had a pork tenderloin cooking in the CrockPot. The recipe was simple, which was a must, and it was all placed into the pot in minutes. I cooked it for 6hrs, but next time, I’ll probably check the temp around 4hrs. The only things I did differently, is use fresh sliced onion, placed underneath the tenderloin and used real garlic. I’m glad I did too. The meat itself fell apart, and was flavourful with the onions and garlic. We had herb and garlic (thanks to Boursin!!) mashed potatoes and honey balsamic roasted brussels sprouts along with it – yummy!!

Slow Cooker Vegetable Curry with Chickpeas

Found this recipe while Googling what to make for dinner, a couple of weeks ago. We wanted our son to try a curry, and after reading through this recipe, decided it would be perfect. Any recipe I find, using my beloved Crock Pot, is worth looking over!! Was very simple to put together, toss into the slow cooker and let it do it’s magic. By the time it was ready, the house smelled amazing. I then served it over rice with a dollop of yogurt on top. It was flavourful and filling. Even our son loved it, and it was a great source of protein for him, from the chickpeas. Kid-approved means it’ll definitely be made again. Give it a try yourself and see what I mean, with the recipe below…

Hungry Buddha Smokin’ Sriracha Coconut Chips

Bought this at our local Winners store awhile back, and tried it for the first time today. It was different, but in a good way!! The spiciness of the sriracha flavour and the mild sweetness of the coconut chips, blend together well, for a unique taste profile. Will definitely buy these again, as my hubby and I loved them!! If you like both flavours, I would give it a try. Could be your next healthier snack option.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!

At least to all my fellow Canuck’s out there…hope you’re in the middle of, enjoying great food and company, or you did last night 🙂

My hubby, son and I had a low key Thanksgiving dinner at home last night. This year we decided to forgo an entire turkey and went for cooking a deconstructed one. It was super simple and only took 1hr 20mins to cook. We made our usual stuffing recipe and placed it on the bottom. Placed the turkey pieces on top and popped it into a 350 degree oven. After the allotted time had passed, we checked to make sure the temp of each piece was 160 degrees, before tenting to rest. We also made roasted brussels sprouts and mashed potatoes for sides, with pumpkin pie for dessert…yum!! Spatchcocking is also a way to cook a turkey or even chicken quickly. We may try that method next year.

Bon Appetit Everyone!! 🙂
