Weekend Links

It was a bit of a crazy week on the blog.  Pinterest sent out an email the other day with links to various slow cooker boards in it.  And they linked to my slow cooker board!

That explained why my site had suddenly gone down.  All the extra traffic crashed the site.  It took a good part of the day and several hundred dollars in extra hosting fees, but we got it back up again.

That post on How to Make 7+ Slow Cooker Freezer Meals in 1 Hour has been the most popular.  For good reason too.  Those freezer meals are life savers!

I’m planning to make a new batch of freezer meals (and another video) this weekend for our February Weekly Meal Plans.  We’ve got good stuff planned!

soup toppers pocket change gourmet


I’m loving these ideas for soup toppers from Pocket Change Gourmet.  Liz and Doug have recipes on their site for making pasta chips, baked parmesan discs and tortilla toppers.  Yum!

Have you ever made snow ice cream?  Kate, who is one of our writers here, has a recipe for Strawberry Snow Ice Cream on her blog that sounds good.  We’re supposed to get another round of snow on Saturday.

If you’d like a warm treat, try this Apple Cider Bread Pudding from Kim, another EaH writer.  I love bread pudding, but can you believe, I’ve never made it before!  This recipe looks like a winner though.

On January 29 at 9pm, I’ll be hanging out on Twitter with @PuritansPride for the Resolution Reboot Twitter party. We’re going to be chatting about keeping our resolutions and there will be prizes involved too!  Follow along with #PuritansPride.

Disclosure: I am working with Puritan’s Pride and have been compensated for my time.

  1. Thanks for sharing our Soup Toppers, Tiffany! They are really fun to make!

  2. Wow! That’s awesome about the extra traffic, but not about the site crashing. That explains why I was having issues the other day. Thanks for linking to my Apple Cider Bread Pudding…I’m getting ready to have some warm cider right now. I’m so ready for Spring!
