Quick Update

Just wanted to drop in real quick and give you an update on my 2012 Crockpot Resolution! I think only 2 weeks went by without using my crockpot, but those were also the weeks that I worked 40-60 hours so..... I think I deserved a break. :) I am really enjoying it, though. Finding lots of yummy recipes and enjoying the ease of it all. Below is a list of recipes I've tried and whether they were yummy or not (unfortunately there were some failures).

Chicken Fajitas - Delicious! We loved them and was incredible easy.
Hobo Meatball Stew - Very yummy! Tasted like pot roast, but yummy nonetheless.
Stuffed Peppers - Failure! Not sure if it was the recipe or if I just don't like the whole concept
Chicken Cacciatore (?) - Okay. It was kinda a thin soup and I tend to like thicker soups.
Orange Chicken - Sadly, a failure. I was really looking forward to this, but it did not turn out yummy . :(
Beef Stroganoff - Good. Will use steak next time instead of ground beef.
Creamy Chicken & Rice - Yummy! Another easy, quick recipe.

I do believe my crockpot recipe for this week is..... drumroll...... Chili!

Alright, good night!


  1. I tried orange chicken in the crockpot last summer. It got rave reviews online, but it was awful. So awful that Scott wouldn't eat more than one bite! Keep trying :)

    1. Whew, glad I'm not the only one. We ate maybe half of it and threw the rest out. I hate when a recipe turns out bad, cause then I just wasted my time, money and food on it!

  2. Yummm....I need to make some Chili! That sounds really good :)
