Recipe Friday – Lentil and Ham Soup

Standard

Hi all!! Today I got a recipe for those cold days that are coming and the best part…it’s a slow cooker recipe!! I love my slow cooker so much. I can just dump everything in with little prep and have an amazing meal in the evening. I could go on forever about my slow cooker so I will stop and get back to the recipe 🙂

This recipe is a really simple one that really does not take too long to put together but turns out amazing. The lentils, ham, and other vegetables are the perfect filling for a cold winter night. Just pair it up with biscuits or cornbread and you have the perfect meal. Enjoy!!

Recipe Friday – Beef Stew

Standard

With fall here and all the good hearty root vegetables coming into season, what better way to enjoy them then with a good wholesome beef stew. I love beef stew and usually this time of year I put my crockpot to good use and start fixing all kinds of stews, soups, even desserts. I think a lot of people believe fixing a good stew is hard. It’s not and honestly even if you use a regular pot to do this it still is not difficult. It’s just time consuming. That’s why I love my crock pot…it’s literally just dump and done 🙂    Hope you enjoy this!!
