This crock pot chicken is super easy, super delicious and super versatile. It works great as the recipe describes but it’s also a great base for tacos, quesdillas, a salad or even on a sandwich with melted cheese. We doubled the recipe and kept some in the fridge for an easy lunch or dinner option.

stuffed turkey burgers + a few wise baby suggestions
We’ve probably had turkey burgers at least 5-8 times since Eloise has been born. Turkey burgers are easy, healthy and the possibilities are endless. These stuffed burgers are great but we have also simplified them and mixed a healthy amount of feta cheese in with some salt and pepper, grilled the burgers and topped with pre made olive tampinade = delicious. Serve with a simple salad or a bag of Ore-Ida fries you can easily pop in the oven. See the possibilities really are endless!
This pasta recipe was a staple in our kitchen long before Eloise arrived. Not only is it delicious but super healthy. I typically add a can of garbanzo beans to up the protein level (straight from the can, rinsed, mix with cook noodles) as well as add some shredded parmesan cheese and some pine nuts if I happen to have them around. I would also suggest halving the garlic in the recipe and using penne noodles. I am sure this pasta would be great with meat mixed in as well. I highly, highly recommend trying this out!
This French Dip recipe is the bomb. I am not sure people still say “the bomb” but it’s the only way I could think to communicate how awesome this recipe is. Not only that it’s super easy – pop a piece of meat in the crock pot with minimal ingredients, put the lid on and about eight hours later you have a delish dinner. Serve on French bread with provolone and alongside a light salad. This is by far one of Tyler’s favorite recipes.
To me, boneless, skinless chicken breasts are pretty boring. However, this lemon garlic chicken recipe really spices up a boring protein. The lemon garlic can easily be switched up for something else in your spice cabinet – maybe some curry, steak seasoning or just plain salt and pepper topped with some parmesan cheese. Here again, the possibilities are endless. We typically pop some rice in our rice cooker but instant rice or baked potato works too.
