Crockpot Shepherds Pie Recipe

This is going to sound funny, but growing up Shepherds Pie was one of my VERY FAVORITE school lunches.  I don't know why, but I always got excited when I found out that's what we were having.  So while I was learning to cook, this was one of the first recipes I wanted to learn. It has a special place in my heart, so when Crocktober came around I knew I wanted to take this beloved one pot meal to the next level.  


That is exactly what I did, and I KNOW you're gonna love it so...

Crockpot Baked Ziti Recipe

One thing I've come to terms with when it comes to crockpot cooking, dump and go is ALWAYS best.  Another thing...break rules!  I took those two philosophies into consideration when creating this Crockpot Baked Ziti Recipe!

Crockpot Jerk Chicken Recipe

Before we get into today's Crocktober recipe, let's have a little heart to heart.  Now I'm just a small town girl from West Virginia.  The flavors of the Caribbean are not something I work with on regular basis, but one of the great things about social media is the fact that you meet new people, who introduce you to new flavors.  Take my friend Kim for example.  Kim (from the Youtube channel Free to Family) is married to an islander, and he made this AMAZING Stewed Brown Chicken Recipe.  I tried the recipe for myself and fell in love with the flavors so that encouraged me to explore a little more with these spices!  That's where this Crockpot Jerk Chicken Recipe evolved from!  


Sweet, salty, and warming from all the spices, this Crockpot Jerk Chicken Recipe is out-of-this-world!  I know you're gonna love it so...

Crockpot Smothered Pork Chops Recipe

West Virginia isn't what I would classify as a southern state, we did secede after all. However, we very much so have a southern culture which shines through in our food.  For example, we like to smother just about anything with gravy.  Why?  BECAUSE IT'S DELICIOUS and this Crockpot Smothered Pork Chop Recipe is the perfect example of that!  


Tender, juicy, and FULL of rich flavor I'm pretty sure pork chops don't get any better than this!  I know you're gonna love it so...

Crockpot Kielbasa and Pierogi Casserole Recipe

Do you know why I love Crocktober so much?  It's because I find myself working with ingredients that I wouldn't normally use.  Take pierogies for example.  Sure, I've had them at polish markets when I travel, but they're not something that I've ever really worked with in my kitchen.  Then a friend of mine told me about this recipe that she really wanted to love, but couldn't make work.  Challenge accepted and this Crockpot Kielbasa & Pierogi Casserole Recipe was born!  


Basically she wanted it to be creamy, but it was totally soupy.  A few adjustments and this Crockpot Kielbasa and Pierogi Casserole Recipe was delicious perfection!  I know you're gonna love this one so...
