Crock Pot Bacon Macaroni and Cheese

Are you ready for a bit of comfort food straight from the crock pot?

I hear everything is better with bacon so we made Crock Pot bacon macaroni and cheese to test this theory. And after multiple taste tests by my dear husband just to make sure he truly enjoyed the recipe… :-) he agrees! Bacon does make this recipe even better.

I am sure you all feel really bad for John having to taste test all of these recipes…… lol

He tells me it is a hard job some days but he will keep doing it. …

Crock Pot Spicy Mango Jerk Wings

After doing a ton of hamburger crock pot recipes I decided to make John his favorite thing…chicken wings.

But I decided to make them in the crock pot so we could continue our spree of crock pot recipes.  The crock pot is just so perfect for this time of year. With the craziness of the holidays and the fact it is getting stupid cold out I love being able to prep dinner in the morning and have it ready when we want it.

I also love that I don’t have to spend hours in the kitchen trying to get everything done. There are so many fun holiday events right now let alone all of the good tv that I just don’t want to be stuck in the kitchen all day.

These Crock Pot Spicy Mango Jerk Wings are super easy to make and taste great. You can make them as spicy as you like. I always start out sort of spicy and then amp it up depending on who will be enjoying them.

Crock Pot Cheese Grits

My dear Husband grew up in the South and loves Southern food.

Every time we visit the South we have to eat as much Southern food as is humanely possible while we are there. Some days I think he goes for the record of eating every type of Southern Food possible.

One of John’s favorite things is grits. Being a Northwest girl I am going to admit that I had no clue what grits were before getting married. Now I love surprising John with Crock Pot Cheese Grits.

These Crock Pot Cheese Grits are so dang easy to make and they turn out fantastic! Crock Pot Cheese Grits

One thing to know is if you let them sit in the crock pot for too long without stirring you end up with Crock Pot Cheese Grits Cake. The grits firm up and form a cake which actually doesn’t taste to bad either….

Crock Pot 7 Layer Bars

Oh MY! That is how I would describe these Crock Pot 7 Layer Bars!

Seriously amazing! The perfect combination of chocolate, butterscotch, coconut, pecans and more!

I am so excited I finally found a loaf pan that will fit in my crock pot. I have been trying for months to find one that fits and randomly cleaning out a cabinet I found a loaf pan stuck in the far back of a cabinet.

Now I can share some amazing bread and layered bar recipes from the crock pot. I am going to fully admit to doing a little dance in the kitchen in excitement.

These Crock Pot 7 Layer Bars are my first of hopefully many recipes made with the loaf pan inside the crock pot.

John told me after trying these that he wasn’t sure I could top them. I am taking that as a challenge to see what else can be made!

Any suggestions on what else I should make in the crock pot with the loaf pan? Do you have any recipes you love?…
