After the amazing success I had with the Crockpot Refried Beans from my new favorite blog, Pennies and Pancakes, I decided to try her Bean & Cheese Burrito recipe, too.
This budget-friendly, freezable recipe is a favorite at our house! It’s a unique twist on pizza and spaghetti that’s simple to put together and can be made up ahead of time. I often serve this when we have company with small children… and it always goes over well.
This allergy-friendly soup will remind you of your grandmother’s chicken & dumplings growing up, only easier since you can make it in your slow cooker.
I like soups that are rich, creamy, and full of veggies and carbohydrates (who needs meat?). My husband, on the other hand, only eats soups that are hearty, meaty, and not rich (veggies optional).
This recipe is our happy compromise. The fact that it is inexpensive to make, feeds a crowd, and is full of ingredients you probably already have on hand means everyone wins!

Do you sometimes gaze at your co-workers deli-prepared lunch, wishing you could just have one bite? Sure it may have been a bit pricey, but all caution is thrown out because it looks so good.

Here’s a super easy dinner idea that makes use of that oh-so-versatile slow cooker! The homemade pico de gallo takes this recipe up a notch and is a fantastic way to use up some of those amazing garden tomatoes that are quite prolific right about now.
This is a basic recipe for chicken on the grill that never disappoints. If you like juicy, well-seasoned chicken, this recipe is for you. It is simple enough to appeal to children, while being classy enough to serve to company. And did I mention that it’s budget-friendly?
A couple of summers ago, I made an important discovery: my neglected slow cooker. Sure, I knew it was great for cooking all those “winter-y” foods (stews, soups, roasts, etc.), but somehow it always got pushed to the back of my cabinet and forgotten during the long, hot months. The very months that I should be using it to keep my kitchen cool.
My husband’s family first introduced me to this easy, economical, and versatile meal. We cook it on the grill, but it can also be cooked over a campfire (or in the oven in colder months). It’s a great way to use garden/seasonal veggies such as green beans, zucchini, onions, peppers, potatoes…and whatever else you want to throw in!
Note from Crystal: So many of you asked for details on how to grill a pizza on my Hawaiian Pizza Recipe, so my sister — the grilled pizza expert — is sharing her pizza recipe and how to bake pizza on the grill. Guest post from Brigette Shevy We love pizza at our house! Over [...]
