Crock Pot Guinness Corned Beef and Cabbage

I am dreaming of returning to Ireland!

The closer it get’s to St. Patrick’s Day the more I want to be on a plane back to Dublin. We fell madly deeply in love with Ireland while we were there this Fall.

Oh my goodness the people, the sites, the food, the Guinness was all so amazing.

We did learn while we were in Ireland that Corned Beef and Cabbage is not really something that is served in Ireland.

Even knowing this I had to make up a Crock Pot Guinness Corned Beef and Cabbage.  It just seemed like the thing to do.

When I think of St. Patrick’s Day I always think of Corned Beef and Cabbage oh and Guinness so why not combine them into one heavenly dish.

Ad: Easy Chicken Penne Pasta Bake Recipe made with Tyson Grilled & Ready Chicken #JustAddTyson

 I am a member of the Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community. This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for Collective Bias and its advertiser

We are now almost all of the way through January…..How are your resolutions and goals for 2014 going?

One of my goals for this year is to make sure I am making healthier dinner options. I like cheese!

There I said it…I mean seriously I love cheese. Enough so that I tend to glob it in to every recipe by the handful. This year I am re-working some of our favorite recipes so they are lighter, healthier, and well a little less cheesy.

I am so excited to be working with Tyson again. Their Grilled & Ready Chicken is perfect for easy meal prep. I decided to make a Easy Chicken Penne Pasta Bake Recipe. I know it is a mouthful to say but dang is it good!

I have had this pasta bake recipe for a while but it didn’t fit in with my 2014 goals. It had globs of alfredo sauce, even more cheese, and oh wait some more cheese to top it off. I decided to change the recipe and make a healthier version!

Baked Salmon with Rosemary, Garlic and Olive Oil

I am excited to share another guest post from Dan from Dan330. Dan has some truly amazing recipes on his site. Today he is sharing with us his Baked Salmon with Rosemary, Garlic and Olive Oil Recipe!

Salmon has a reputation for being a “fishy” tasting fillet. It certainly can be if it is not fresh or cooked well. Frankly, many people don’t eat salmon because they don’t know how to prepare it. Salmon is a very healthy choice when choosing fish. It is loaded with Omega 3 fatty acids and it is worth learning a couple of recipes to work this fish into your meal plans each month.

Baked Salmon with Rosemary Garlic Olive Oil. Here is a simple way that anyone can make this very tasty, and good for you dish. You can serve this as a main dish, or as an appetizer. The key to salmon is to buy fresh fillets and knowing what kind of complementing flavors need to be added to it. In this dish, we will be blending garlic and rosemary together….

Crock Pot Tomato Sauce and saving time, energy and money with eMeals!

First I have to say thank you to eMeals for sponsoring today’s post through Markerly. I am so excited to share with everyone the amazing Crock Pot Tomato Sauce we made and the eMeals service.

AND…..eMeals is giving our readers 35% off of your eMeals subscription! Woohoo! All you have to do is use code: cyber35

I have been a fan of eMeals for a while. I first heard of eMeals almost 2 years ago while I was at a conference for bloggers. After talking with eMeals I was so impressed with their goals and reasons for setting up eMeals. Their goal is to save all of us time, energy and money! I have to say I like anyone who can help me save time and money.

The great thing about eMeals is you can totally customize the plan to you! eMeals is not a cookie cutter everyone gets the same program end of story thing. Instead you have the opportunity to pick the plan that works specifically for your family. I chose the Slow Cooker Clean Eating Family Plan. I had the option of picking a plan for just 2 people but honestly I LOVE left overs. Being able to freeze extra food for a rainy day works great for me.

I had so many choices when it came to picking an eMeals plan. They have classic meals, clean eating, paleo, slow cooker, low carb, low fat, natural and organic, simple gourmet, gluten free and so many more.

If you pick a meal plan and decide you want to eat low carb or low fat for the next few months you can easily change your plan. It truly is easy peasy!

The first recipe I made from my Slow Cooker Clean Eating Family Plan was Crock Pot Fresh Tomato Sauce over Penne Pasta! Hello Yum!
