Crock-Pot #14 Tunisian Yam and Red Bean Stew

Yam red bean

Dreary cold wet day… glad that I had this yummy stew ready.  But, disappointed that I didn’t run or climb stadium bleachers outside.  I was prepared from the start of my day with running shoes, running jacket, hat, and charged up GPS & music.  But I didn’t set my boundaries & allowed myself to get distracted.  The list of […]

February is here & I’m progressing well.  How are you doing with your goals and dreams for 2010?  Cooking is definitely one of the habits I will continue.  I’m eating way healthier & saving tons of money.  I do have those voices that tempt me to be lazy & stay on the couch or go to […]

Crock-Pot #11: Potato, Leek, & Quinoa Soup

Quinoa is so AWESOME!!  I didn’t know how easy it is to make, delicious, and so nutritious…. especially for me being a pescetarian.  It was classified by the National Academy of Sciences as one of the best sources of protein in the vegetable kingdom.  Not many plants contain all 8 of the essential amino acids that flesh protein […]

Crock-Pot #10: Vegetable Curry

I made my own version of this recipe last week.  To tell you the truth, I overlooked and didn’t buy the main ingredient…. Curry.  After I assembled everything together as instructed, I realized I’d have to continue on with the tomato paste & add spaghetti sauce with veggie broth.  I turned this totally indian recipe into an […]

Crock-Pot #9: Ratatouille w/ Chickpeas

I really felt like I was following in the foot steps of Julia Childs cooking a dish called Ratatouille.  I thought it made me sound like a pro at cooking.  I feel the same way when I cook with Leeks.  It just seems French.  Anyways, here’s another recipe from last week that I didn’t take a picture of nor did I care for […]

Behind on the blogging, how easy it is to get distracted.  But I have to tell you about this Weight Watcher’s Crockpot Recipe…..

This week's Grocery List and Menu….

Wow…  Just got off the plane & I can’t wait to get back to my Crock Pot cooking.  A week of Birthday Bliss and travel was distracting, the whole family is feeling the sluggish heaviness of this past week’s food choices.  We are so looking forward to clean, fresh, and healthy eating again.  All the beans […]

Crock Pot #7: Split Pea Soup & my Chocolate addiction

Week 2… I was slackin’ for a few days but got back on track.  Did I mention I went 11 straight days without chocolate since midnight New Year’s.   I know that doesn’t sound like much, but it’s a big deal for me.  I lost 3 pounds cutting out chocolate and eating these crock pot meals.  I […]
