Slow Cooker–Crock Pot

If you have been reading my posts, you already know that I love my pressure cooker, but I also use a slow cooker on my days off, especially when I am busy catching up on housework, gardening, or crafts. It is such a wonderful way to have your dinner cook “all by itself”, while you go about your business.

I have been using a slow cooker for many years now. I used to have a Sunbeam Crocker Cooker-Fryer for a very long time, but recently I have purchased a Rival Crock-Pot. I love it so much, that I even purchased one for each of my children, to get them started experimenting with this cooking method.

Pastry Blender – Kitchen Gadget

Pastry blender (also known as pastry cutter) is one of the necessary kitchen gadgets your will need, if your recipe calls for a streusel. I have been making streusel with the use of a fork, or just plain hands, but having the pastry cutter is such a big help, and so much easier to get the job done.

Tuna Melts – Recipe

Here is another meatless dish, which is quick, easy, and nutritious. Perfect for a busy mom who strives to serve her family a healthy meal. These are perfect alone, or accompanied by a nice serving of garden salad, or a bowl of soup. This recipe serves 2-4.

Fruit Filled Crepes

One of my favorite recipes from my mom, is a recipe for crepes. She usually filled them with creamed, and sweetened, farmer’s cheese. I like my crepes filled with fresh fruits, or fruit preserves ( I use Smucker’s Sugar Free Fruit Preserves), served with fruit syrup (also by Smucker’s), and whipped cream. This dish may be served as a light main course, or as a dessert. Makes about 8 crepes.
