6 Slow Cooker Suppers

Well it looks as though I've had my first ever blogging snafu in one year of blogging :)  I scheduled this post to go live Monday morning but then had too much fun baby-free yesterday that I never finished it.  Yep, you read that right... baby-free. My inlaws took Babycakes after church yesterday to spend the night at their cabin, with my MIL driving of courseDear Hubby and I just stared at each other for about an hour, so unfamiliar with what life should be like with no loquatious toddler....haha! ...

Fall Fashion + {Slow Cooker Hawaiian Chowder}

Since losing over 50 pounds in the last year, my wardrobe has shrunk - both figuratively and literally!  It made getting the house ready to sell pretty easy: the walk-in closet was mostly empty.  But I really need some new items, desperately.  Since my mom was here to help me pack, she also took me (and Babycakes) shopping. ...

Cherry Limeade - packed with veggies!

Well, it's been ENTIRELY too long since I posted a new juice recipe.  So this weekend it was a must-do! If I got nothing else done, I WOULD: make, document, photograph, and imbibe in some wonderfully refreshing juice.  I still had some leftover cherries (believe it or not!) even after this 5-things-to-do-with leftover cherries post.  Soooooo, I knew cherries would be going inside.  I also had some leftover kale from the "Mostly" Vegan Zuppa Toscana.  And I pretty much ALWAYS ...
