What are you making in your crock pot these days?

Today I have a Jamaican Goat Curry recipe that I modified to use my crockpot

I'm looking forward to the weather getting colder, as I love having mulled apple cider in the crockpot, kept on warm all day. It's so comforting :)

oatmeal in smoothies

I've used uncooked oats in a smoothie before. I liked the flavour, but I wasn't thrilled with the texture, even after they soaked overnight in the fridge

If I ever have leftover oatmeal, I'll probably try it in a smoothie though

Oatmeal with Hot Water Kettle

If you have access to a mortar & pestle, you can make your own instant oatmeal - just take large flake oats & grind them up a bit.

your twist on Krispie Treats, please

When I was in high school, they sold a variation in the cafeteria - they had peanut butter in them, & a layer of chocolate on the top. They were AMAZING :D

The “A Cookbook a Week” Challenge….Will you join me? [old]

I used to have the same problem (I had over 200 cookbooks at one time), but I bought a program for my computer called 'Living Cookbook', & slowly I went through each cookbook, transferring the recipes I wanted to keep into the program, & I now have less than 20 cookbooks, 5 of which are keepers for one reason or another :) the program really encouraged me to get through the books though, because of how customizable the organization is (I swear this isn't a sales pitch! *LOL*). I can add tags, sort into cookbooks, search by ingredients, & if I put in the nutritional information for each ingredient, it'll calculate the nutritional information per serving of each recipe. It's really convenient for me.
I still have to get through the last few, but I keep getting distracted by webpages full of recipes *laughs*
