I agree with the creator of this Coconut Milk Poached Fish recipe that poaching is really underrated a lot of times. It’s such a great way to get that melt in your mouth feel and put some really great flavors into the fish at the same time. Plus, poaching in the slow cooker is super easy!

Scalloped Peaches – 100 Days of Summer Slow Cooker Recipes

I don’t think that dessert has to be complex in order to be delicious.

Scalloped-Peaches-recipe-Taste-and-Tell-1

 

One of my favorite scents of summer is the scent of fresh, sweet peaches. I love fresh peaches. And I love how simple this recipe for Scalloped Peaches makes a great Summer favorite that incorporates not only peaches (which are easy to get locally in a lot of the country right now!) but a scoop of another one of my favorite things- ice cream!

Really, there’s not much to the recipe and yet it is way too good. You can make your own ice cream if you want, or buy it. Either way, I think you’ll agree that this is a perfect summer breakfast…er, dessert.

Ice Cream, Pedometers, Becoming, Pigs

farmergeorgeandthepigs

No.  Not becoming pigs.  And not in that order either.

Let’s Start with Pigs

That photo is of my brother-in-law, George.  He and his wife have started a small farm with pigs, chickens, ducks, and turkeys.  These pigs went to market earlier in the week.  Half of one of them will be filling my freshly, cleaned out freezer.  Here’s to farm raised meat!

Becoming Conference – Want to Come?

Screen Shot 2014-07-18 at 1.00.17 PM

I’m really excited about going to this conference with a local friend in a few weeks.  It’s not a blogging conference, but there will be some bloggers there who I’m excited to meet.  My friend, Jen of Beauty and Bedlam is one of the organizers.  I’m looking forward to seeing her again.  And I can’t wait to meet Christy of Southern Plate.

Mostly, I’m looking forward to doing something that feeds my creativity and provides rest for my soul.  The conference takes place in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Asheville, NC.  There’s still time to register and the prices are very affordable.  I’d love to meet you there!

My New Pedometer

I decided to buy a pedometer in an effort to encourage myself to walk more.  Before I bought it I even googled, “Does using a pedometer make you walk more?”.  Turns out it does, as long as you write down the number of steps you take each day.

I liked the price of this Omron pedometer and it has great reviews on Amazon.  It’s easy to use too.

I’ve been walking in the mornings and being able to see how many steps I’ve taken (or how few) encourages me to keep going.  I’m surprised at how few steps add up in my day-do-day living.  If you want to hit 5000 or 10,000 steps goal that gets promoted so often by health experts, you really have to be intentional.  It’s a lot harder to do than I expected.  Even with taking a long walk in the morning and sometimes a second walk in the evening, I’ve yet to hit 10,000.

Ice Cream, You Scream

Have you ever wondered about the difference between ice cream and gelato?  The Kitchn has the answer for you.

I love any kind of ice cream or gelato or anything closely related.  Love, love, love!  This Sunday, our local Graeter’s ice cream store is having a sale on their cones.  $1.40something each to celebrate 140ish years of Graeter’s.  I know what I’ll be doing Sunday afternoon.

What will you be doing this weekend?

The Cuban Sandwich – 100 Days of Summer Slow Cooker Recipes

One can never know too many ways to make a sandwich in the summertime!

Meet the Cuban Sandwich. Inspired by real cuban flavors, this is a slow cooker twist. The great thing about this is you can make up extra batches of the meat filling and pop it in the freezer so that you can make these in a near-jiffy whenever you get in the mood. These are a pressed sandwich, and pack up great for a picnic!

Hard boiled Eggs – 100 Days of Summer Slow Cooker Recipes

Hard boiled eggs in a slow cooker?

Slow-cooker-hard-boiled-eggs-

 

 

 

The first thing I thought of when I saw this was, aren’t hard boiled eggs already easy? Well, yes. It’s fairly simple to put an egg into water and boil it. But if you’re trying to avoid heating up the kitchen, or if you need to do a large number of hard boiled eggs at a time (deviled eggs for a summer potluck, for example! I think this slow cooker trick is pretty nifty. Plus, you don’t have to watch your pot or worry about cooling them down just so. It’s another great example of how the slow cooker lets you toss and go in so many ways. Though of course, with eggs, you’d want to toss gently. ;)

Slow Cooker Corn Casserole

slow cooker corn casserole

 

Corn casserole is one of those dishes that shows up at potluck suppers in the South and Mid-West.  You can find the recipe in many church cookbooks.

It’s a combination of corn and very moist cornbread that tastes slightly sweet.  Not dessert sweet, but “ooh, let me eat more of this” sweet.  It goes great with any kind of meat on the grill.  I think sliced tomatoes pair up with it nicely too.  They’re almost entirely opposite of corn casserole in flavor and color.

We had friends over for the 4th of July and I decided to try making this in the slow cooker.  It worked great and kept the kitchen cool too.

Slow Cooker Peach Chutney You Can Store in the Freezer

Slow Cooker Peach Chutney

 

 

Chutney is not a food that we eat often in my family.  In fact, this may be the first time most of the kids had tried it.  I was inspired by a sandwich we ate in Epcot Norway to try making my own chutney.

Since we’re in the middle of a Summer Slow Cooker Series, it seemed appropriate to use a slow cooker to make this.  I also wanted to be able to freeze it for future use.  For most recipes, you don’t need very much chutney and it’s nice to have it stashed away for when you need it.

Instead of the normal mango, I used canned peaches.  The fruit pairs up with red bell pepper, onion, jalepeno, golden raisins and spices for a sweet condiment with a hint of heat.

And in case you’re wondering what on earth you would actually do with chutney, I’ve got three recipes coming up for you!  I’ll be sharing those on the blog soon.

I know I took a photo of the ingredients, but somehow those photos have gone missing.  Thankfully, even though chutney itself may be a bit unusual, the ingredients are not.  Chances are you have most of these in your kitchen right now.  And the few you don’t have can be picked up on your next trip to the grocery.  Don’t forget plastic freezer bags to store the extra!   [Read more...]

Vegetarian Fajitas – 100 Days of Summer Slow Cooker Recipes

Vegetarians, listen up! This recipe is especially for you.

 

VegetarianFajitas

Fajitas are a great way to use up veggies. And at least at our house, no one ever complains when they hear that fajitas are on the menu! This recipe is a vegetarian version. It’s a great option if you’re wanting to cut back on meat, and it freezes really well!  Having some frozen for busy nights (like when School starts up again!) would make this recipe even less time consuming!

You could use it as a dip or make loaded nachos with it. It’s filling enough to be a meal, and nice and easy. I’d say that’s a perfect combo for the weekend.
