As resident chef, cook, recipe collector, Facebook food sharer, I spend a lot of time scouring cookbooks, blogs and Pinterest for new recipes. I had a friend recently message me and tell me I needed to start a food blog. The thought has crossed my mind, but then again, why would I want to add that extra stress when I can just share right here on The RHOK?!? So, I am going to try and mostly post about food on my days to write. I hope you'll enjoy the recipes.
I've been using my crockpot a lot lately. It's just nice to not have to rush around in the kitchen after school trying to get dinner going. My family likes to eat early and if I don't get dinner at least started by 3:30 then I might as well forget it. Soccer practices start back this week. That's two nights that will have to be crockpot nights!
The Monday before Fat Tuesday I had some of my dear friends over to my aunt's house (it was beautifully decorated for Mardi Gras) for a get together. Everyone brought food in their crockpots for our Crock On party.
Here are a few pictures from our fun evening:
Tonight I made a new recipe in the crockpot and it was super easy and turned out quite yummy.
Crock Pot BBQ Sausage & Beans
2 cans white beans, rinsed and drained (I used Cannellini.)
1 can light red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
2 packages of Eckridge Skinless Smoked Sausage
1 cup BBQ sauce of your choice
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
Mix all ingredients except the sausage. Pour into crockpot (spray with non-stick spray or use a liner). Lay sausage on top of the beans and cook on low 3-4 hours.
What is your favorite easy crockpot recipe? I'd love to try it. Leave the recipe in the comments or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
