Spicy Chicken Rub (URS: Chicken Recipes)

Ultimate Recipe Swap

I like to be organized at meal times, but despite all my freezer cooking and meal planning, we still have nights when I’m staring into the fridge wondering what to make. That’s usually when the grill comes into play. If I can get a hold on something to throw on the barby, dinner can come […]

Beans & Rice Taco Salad (Ultimate Recipe Swap: Salads)

Ultimate Recipe Swap

This week we’ve been talking about ways to be better stewards of the resources God’s given us, specifically the earth. When it comes to food, one of the first things I associate with “green living” is salads. Salads bursting with vegetables are a great way for us to nourish our bodies at the same time […]

Bean and Rice Soup (URS: Crockpot Recipes)

Ultimate Recipe Swap

Forget diamonds, a crockpot is a girl’s best friend. (Well, after the freezer, that is.) Who else will slave away on lunch or dinner with nary a complaint while you go galivanting about the place doing whatever you want? I use one of my three crockpots at least twice a week.

Feel a little chill in the air? See the harvest coming in? Ready to dust off the soup pot and get cooking? Autumn is a wonderful time to bring back tummy-warming, stick-to-your-ribs meals. When quizzed, FishPapa said that his most favorite fall recipe was Minestrone. (I knew he would say that.) Traditionally, my Minestrone bubbles […]

Easy Taco Salad to Feed a Crowd – Ultimate Recipe Swap

Ultimate Recipe Swap

Labor Day is the ideal time to gather a crowd for one last summer hurrah. Host a BBQ or a pool party and just enjoy these last few carefree days of summer. It’s not a great party, though, without some great eats. And feeding a crowd can be a huge undertaking. One of my favorite […]

Favorite Crockpot Recipe: Shredded Beef

Ultimate Recipe Swap

This week on Ultimate Recipe Swap we’re sharing recipes that work well in the slow cooker. When I do big freezer cooking days, I almost always have one or more crockpots cooking away on the counter while I do work on other things. One of my favorite items is Shredded Beef Filling. It’s a great […]
