Dreaming, and Scheming and wouldn't you know... {Oh and a GIVEAWAY.}


I have been dreaming about a fun way to give something away, and scheming about a way to get some new recipes.

You see... I need some more crock pot recipes.

I have my "hands full" if you hadn't heard.  Crock pot is about all I can handle. 

Really it makes my life so much easier, but I am running out of ideas.

So I was laying in bed dreaming up this idea, and coming up with my master plan.

"I know!", I said to myself.

I will give a shout out to all my blogger friends. 


.. and then I schemed up a way to get you to do it.

I said to myself again(yes, I talk to myself a lot.)

"Self, have them email recipes.  Then try them out, pick the best one, and send the winner something."

I replied, "Great idea, self!" Then I gave myself a pat on the back, and drifted off to sleep.

When I woke up the next morning, I opened my silverware drawer.  It somehow caught the lid of my crock pot that was in my cupboard below.  The cute little pot that I have owned for eleven years did a somersault and didn't survive my tile floor.DSC_0001

BOO HOO.  Wouldn't you know on the day that I schemed up my plan for new recipes.

So give me an excuse to buy myself a new one.  And if you win, I will send you a nice little neck warmer (some of you may call them scarf's).

You will receive a nice homemade knit scarf.  Made by ME.  I love these because they are so comfy.  I wear it around the house all day.  It seems to take the chill off.  They look adorable, and are a great accessory.Scarf

(I am looking for new models, this girl has got to go, I don't think she knows what she is doing.) 

Here are the rules:

Email me your recipe at

Please share a little about yourself, and a link to your own blog if you have one.  I am always looking to make new friends.  New Recipes, New Friends what could be better?

You have until Saturday, Feb. 27, 2010 at midnight.

We are only looking for Main Course Dishes.  I will ask for desserts at a later date.  It can be breakfast dishes.  We love breakfast for any meal.

On Sunday, February 28th, my family will read over the entries and pick the top 3.  The top 3 will be the recipes we think sound the most delicious.

I will announce the top 3 and share the recipes.

I will then cook the top 3 during the week of March 1st, for my family.

My family will then vote at the end of the week.

I will announce the winner here on Monday, March 8, 2010.

Here is a little head start; I don't care for fish.  So no fishy recipes please.

I can't wait to try out all your tasty recipes. 

In advance I just want to say thank you for sharing, and making my full life taste a little bit better.

Chicken Mexican Casserole
Ingredients: chicken, tortillas, 8 oz sour cream, 1 pkg shredded mexican cheese, sliced black olives (optional)
- cook frozen chicken breast in crock pot (put in before work and take out after work) on low heat. Take out of crock pot and shred. Put some in a baking pan and cut tortillas in half placing them on chicken (which will be about 3 or 4 halves), cover with sour cream and then cheese, layer everything again with the remainders. Bake at 350 until cheese melts. I've actually had to start making 2 dishes because my kids will eat a whole dish in 1 night! I know this is technically a crock pot and oven recipe, but give me a break, I'm feeding 3 kids and this is one of their favorites!

So fun! You are so cute! I will have to get busy deciding what I should send your way. You already have tons of my recipes, so I don't know what else to share! :) I will just surprise you.

I buy a chuck roast and I put it in the bottom of the crock pot. I then add 1 envelope of Lipton Onion Soup and 1 can of mushroom soup. (If the roast is large... I add 2 envelopes and two cans of soup.) Put the lid on it and cook on low all day. I usually put it on at 7:00 am and by 3:00 in afternoon it is ready. I shred the beef and then put the beef back into its own gravy. Serve on sandwich buns or by itself with Mash potatoes and corn. YUM-O! Enjoy, Nancy from OHIO

No recipe to give you that you don't already have, but I wanted to tell you the other night I was reading in the February Ensign and under Latter-Day Saint Voices there is a story titled: They are all mine. Read it.

Hmm . . . I've owned a crock pot for 13 years and I'v NEVER used it.

I want to. I've just never used it.

Maybe you should post your favorite recipes sometime . . . :)
