Back to school means time to get back in the swing of things… and sometimes that can be a struggle!

This overnight slow cooker French toast casserole is so easy and the whole family will love it! It’s even perfect for dinner time, making it versatile.
There’s just something special about going to Cracker Barrel for lunch. No, it’s not the checkers outside or the store in the front of the restaurant. It has to be the epic side dishes you can get with your meal. It never fails… my order is the same every time I go there. Chicken and dumplings with fried apples, mac and cheese, and the hashbrown casserole. For the longest time, Cracker Barrel was my choice because I couldn’t get those darn apples anywhere else. Want to know a secret, though? I learned how to make a spot-on copycat so I don’t have to drive quite as far for that heavenly cinnamon apple goodness… without further ado, here’s how to make Cracker Barrel Style Fried Apples (in your slow cooker!)
Hello, week… if you’re like me, you’re already looking for the perfect recipe for Taco Tuesday tomorrow and every week… and this one is SO simple that you won’t even have to worry about it. During the summer, I hate using my stove top to boil a chicken but I love chicken tacos year round… boiling a chicken just feels like it makes the whole house a little hot and sticky, which adds a nice warmth in the house in the winter, but is just WAY too hot in summer.
This recipe is SUPER simple… start by layering half of a small jar of your favorite picante sauce– any kind and any level of spice your family likes will work just fine!
Next, layer on 2 pounds of chicken breasts (or use your favorite chicken meat– thighs, legs, even a whole chicken will work since you will be removing it to shred later).
Top with a packet of chicken taco seasoning (or your favorite taco seasoning blend), and pour the remaining picante sauce on top.
The picante sauce will help keep the chicken from getting dry, while also enhancing the seasoning for extra flavor.
Cook on low for 6-8 hours, until chicken is cooked thoroughly. Remove from the slow cooker and shred the meat. Return the meat to the slow cooker and give it a good stir, then leave it on warm until you’re ready to serve, or serve it right away.
Load up your tacos with all of your favorite fixin’s– I love a little bit of lettuce, tomato, and cheese on mine– and serve!

Can you believe that back-to-school is just around the corner? I’m a little bit shocked, but stores already have backpacks and pencils galore, which means it’s time to start figuring out what to fix for dinner now that school is just about back in session.

But this slow cooker chicken tortilla soup is perfection! It fits in perfectly with the weeknight rotation of spaghetti or tacos, and takes minutes to throw together.

Oh soup… the perfect, most amazing comfort food. I am a huge fan of soup recipes, because it’s the perfect, warming food! I love soup SO much, I even have it for Christmas dinner.

As dip week comes to a close soon, I’ve saved my best for last, guys. Really– this is a hearty, delicious dip that could almost be considered a meal instead of just an appetizer. I challenge you to find anyone who doesn’t love a bacon cheeseburger (and finding a vegan doesn’t count!) There’s just something about it– the bacon, the ooey-gooey cheese, the juicy beef patty. But bacon cheeseburgers are just not easy party food… however, a bacon cheeseburger DIP, now, that’s another story.
I have to say, I’m a Kansas City girl at heart. So if there’s one thing that gets my heart beating a little bit faster, it’s good quality barbecue. You see, barbecue is such a part of my city that our soccer team even has a chant that revolves around barbecue. It’s a staple here in KC. You know what else is a staple? Louisburg Apple Cider. Ask anyone who knows what they’re talking about, and they’ll say that, when it comes time for cooler weather, you can’t beat hot apple cider doughnuts and a cup of warm Louisburg apple cider. I had to combine the best of both worlds and create a delicious applewood-style slow cooked pulled pork. And what does that need? Apple Cider Barbecue Sauce.

I love macaroni and cheese. It seems like the ultimate comfort food, especially in the winter. The best mac and cheese is creamy, with just the right amount of good, wholesome cheese.
So, when I teamed up with Crystal Farms and saw their mac and cheese blend, I knew exactly what I needed to do.
And, you’re going to want to stick around to the very end for this one, because you could win this Crock Pot Programmable Cook and Carry Slow Cooker and some Crystal Farms coupons so you can make Mac and Cheese just like this at home (plus a ton of other great cheesy slow cooker recipes!)
