Crock Pot Beer and Cheese Soup

Is anyone else totally and completely over winter and ready for spring?

I am so ready for spring weather. I keep reminding myself April showers bring May flowers but it is only February so that isn’t helping much :-)

Today I am excited to share a hot, comforting, if only it would melt a bit of winter weather soup with everyone.

Crock Pot Beer and Cheese soup is seriously so easy to make! AND it tastes amazing!

I made up a huge pot of this so John would have leftovers while I am gone this week.

Tomorrow I am heading to Cincinnati to meet with Proctor and Gamble!

I am so excited to be participating in their Science of Sleep event. Let’s be honest I don’t know anyone who would complain at more sleep or better sleep!

I can’t wait to bring back amazing tools and information to help us all get a better night sleep.

Since I am going to be out of town for a few days I figured I would load up the fridge and freezer with meals John could easily re-heat.

Though…we will see if he eats the food I made or goes out with our neighbor to eat all of the food I don’t like.

Crock Pot French Onion Soup Recipe

My dear Husband loves French Onion Soup.

Every time we take a cruise he looks forward to the evening they serve French Onion Soup.

Since we sadly do not have a cruise on our schedule right now I figured I would try my hand at making his favorite soup.

Well you know I had to give it my own spin and make it in the crock pot.

So without further ado…..Crock Pot French Onion Soup

Weight Watchers Vegetable Soup

I was given a free one month subscription to Weight Watchers to try their new Simple Start plan and write about my experience.Though I was compensated for my time and commitment, all views, positive and negative, are my own

I can’t believe I am already starting week 2 of the Weight Watchers Simple Start Plan! This past week has absolutely flown by. I am so EXCITED about this plan!

Here’s the deal…I run around like a chicken with my head cut off some days. I know that is really not a pretty picture but that is how I feel at times. Over the past few years I have put my health and nutrition on the back burner. I have been so focused on reaching other goals that my focus on my health just wasn’t there.

The Weight Watchers Simple Start plan has recharged my focus and given me a tool to succeed in reaching these goals. Can I tell you the best part of the plan….It is crazy easy.

I mean seriously they give you recipes and menu plans to follow. You don’t have to think or worry about what to make, figure out the point totals, or wonder if you are eating the right thing. They do it all for you!

Crock Pot Beef Stroganoff Recipe

John has been asking for Crock Pot Beef Stroganoff for months. He absolutely loves Beef Stroganoff and wanted to see how it would turn out in the Crock-Pot. I love that I can set the Beef Stroganoff up during the day and it cooks while I am working. It was super easy to prepare and made the house smell amazing. John came home and told me he was starving. Which was a good thing because there was quite a bit of Crock Pot Beef Stroganoff!

The next time I make this I think I will use a little less sour cream. John said that he could really taste the sour cream flavor over all of the other flavors.

I Heart Bacon ~ 20+ Fantastic Bacon Recipes!

I Heart Bacon ~ 20+ Fantastic Bacon Recipes!

I heart Bacon

We are starting off 2013 with bacon! Bacon has become a cult fascination over the past few years. Everywhere you look there are Bacon t-shirts, Bacon Lip Balm, Bacon Band Aids, Bacon Flavored Dental Floss,Bacon Gift Wrap, Bacon Printed Duct Tape, Bacon Soap, and even a The Shakin Bacon Dashboard Dancer.

As a vegetarian I never thought I would write a blog post about loving bacon. I have learned to cook bacon after being married to a meat eater for a few years. The first time I tried to cook bacon I had to call my Mom and ask how to do it. I probably should have thought that call through since she instantly asked who I was cooking the bacon for since I had been vegetarian over 10 years. I had to admit that I was dating John and it was getting serious. Who would have thought bacon would out our relationship to my parents.
