Holy moly, it’s been so long since I blogged here!  I’ve been so busy lately and I haven’t really been trying new recipes to share with you.  I do have a few now though, so I apologize if you keep coming here and seeing nothing new.

Today’s new recipe: salsa chicken.  A moist and creamy shredded chicken recipe that’s super simple.  Just drop a few ingredients into the crockpot and poof, you’ve got a great mixture to put on top of just about anything.

We ate our salsa chicken on top of some brown rice, but you could easily top baked potatoes instead.  I also think it would be great to make shredded chicken nachos with any leftovers you have.

Classic Beef Chili

My husband and I couldn’t be more opposite when it comes to food.  He’s a big meat and potatoes person and I’m more chicken and salads.  He loves things like chili so every once in a while I throw him a bone and make a pot just for him.  It never even makes it to the freezer, he devours it all in two days flat.

Being that I’m not a chili connoisseur, I have to take his word on this recipe.  I was a bit worried while making it cause the crushed tomatoes and tomato paste give it a fairly strong tomato taste.  He hates tomatoes, so I thought he’d fuss over it.  But surprisingly, he thought this beef chili was very tasty.

Homemade Baked Potato Chips

I don’t know about anyone else but sometimes I’m just craving something salty.  Even though chips can be tasty, they’re also super salty and greasy.  So next time you have a hankering for a bag of potato chips, try making your own baked version.

These homemade potato chips turn out nice and crispy and you get to control the amount of salt.  All it takes is a couple fresh potatoes and less than 30 minutes for a healthier snack alternative.

Easy Crock Pot Baked Potatoes

This baked potato recipe is bound to become one of my favorites.  Why?  Because it is so darn easy and doesn’t require the use of your oven on a hot summer day.  Just wash some potatoes, wrap them in foil and pop them in the crock pot.  Poof!  Four hours later you get perfectly baked potatoes!

This recipe will be great on summer days when we’re spending time outdoors and I don’t want to have to concentrate on dinner.  Start them in the early afternoon then head outside and do some yard work.  Later that evening, grill some steaks and you’re done!  I topped ours off with some frozen cheesy broccoli.  Yum!
