Crock-Pot Swap

Hey there, bloggin' friends! No, I didn't take another vacation. Far from it, actually. I wish I could take another vacation to escape the craziness that has been going on here lately...busy, busy! Today, I wanted to share another recipe card I made for a swap at Splitcoast Stampers. The theme for this swap was to share a recipe to make in your Crock-Pot. I don't know about you, but I LOVE my Crock-Pot! There is something so fabulous about throwing a bunch of ingredients into it in the morning, then *POOF* dinner is magically ready 8 to 10 hours later. No fuss, no mess. :)


Well, enough about being in awe of the fantastical powers of the Crock-Pot. I decided to share a recipe for Swiss Chicken. I received this recipe a few years ago on a scrapbooking website and it has been a favorite every since. Although I make a few tweaks to make it a wee bit on the heathier side. You know, like using the "Healthy Request" soup, skim milk, low-sodium stuffing mix and that butter that really isn't butter (...but you just can't believe it). Haha! We don't usually go fat-free on the cheese though...fat-free cheese just tastes rubbery and strange to me. Why is that?? Here is a close up of the recipe, if you'd like to give it a try:
Thanks for stopping by today! I apprecate that you took the time to visit. :) Hope you are enjoying your week, so far. I will be back real soon...


Have a HAPPY day! :)

Have an awesome day, no walks for Lucky today with the rain and 30 mph wind, especially after being sick in bed. Thank you so much for your sweet comments, they were great to read while I was snuggled away in bed.

  9. Don't have a crock pot but it sounds a great way to cook!!! I've become more and more lazy as I've got older, and less and less willing to spend hours slaving over a hot stove (was I ever that keen???) Love your colour scheme (and the recipe looks yummy :) )
