Chicken Soup with Orzo
Chicken Soup with Orzo
If you’re like me, you keep your eye out for crock-pot recipes that can be thrown together in a hurry. There are plenty that I’d like to try, but my busy schedule doesn’t always allow me to do a lot of preparation. I’m often tossing ingredients into a crock pot before bedtime to cook the next day or I’m hurriedly throwing things together before I walk out the door in the morning. For me, browning meat is an additional step that takes time and effort. It’s much easier for me to prepare recipes that are simply “load and go,” no precooking necessary.
  • A pasta classic: Fettucine Alfredo

    Fettucine Alfredo, tender pasta coated with a creamy and rich sauce, has withstood the test of time and is still a favorite today.

  • The origin of tamales can be traced back as early as 7000 B.C. During Pre-Columbian times Aztec women served as battle cooks. Portable and sustainable food such as tamales was needed. 
  • Flavor of the season: Pumpkin
