Who says you have to cook all day in a crockpot. I use mine to simmer dishes such as this one so I don't have to watch the stove. If you like the flavors of green chili chicken enchiladas you'll love this recipe. I use shredded Rotiserre chicken, Northern Beans and green chiles with a few of my favorite spices to make this hearty chicken chili. What's better than smelling sauteed garlic and onion to start, infusing with red pepper and cumin adding all into a crockpot only to simmer while you do other things. In no time you have a family-pleasing main course. Adjust the heat to your tastes! Add a kick with preprared Salsa for a more intense flavor. If you like soups/chilis or stews thicker, add the cornstarch slurry. Serve with cornbread, tortillas or crusty french bread. ;) V's family favorite! I serve this Chili over leftover spanish rice that I freeze just for this dish. Mmm

Recipe #349909

Wow, never tried this type milkshake before and was recently surprised. Using buttermilk instead of milk?. Don't turn your nose up till you tried this. The buttermilk adds a bit of tang to the sweetness of the vanilla ice cream and the way the tartness of the berries, the sweetness of the cream, and the tang of the buttermilk came together is delicious. Delicious but rich. Creme de Cassis is A sweet red blackcurrant flavored liqueur and goes great in this shake! I think shot-glass sized glasses (or a tad bigger) make the perfect serving size for these ...and from start to finish they only take about 5 minutes to make. A tasty, no-fuss dessert.

Recipe #333474

I have a large hand blown Martini glass that holds this no problem. Since I enjoy Cranberry and/or grapefruit with Vodka I thought this would be a great combination. It IS. Not too sweet, not too tangy, balanced just right with the cranberry-grapefruit SoBe. Another everyday martini favorite of mine.

Recipe #334599

Here it is, my DH has decided to give it up .... that is his recipe for his famous Chili Beans. Ric has been making this dish for as long as I've known him. The one dish everyone requests for potlucks, family gatherings or just a warm week night dinner. I'm not a big Chili fan, but these are the best and In under 30 minutes makes this quick warm and definite comfort food.

Recipe #336302

I threw this together in less than 30 minutes. The outcome was raves all around the table. Always trying to come up with ways to cook chicken or pork, I finally made a sauce that my family said was "off the hook". This dish was so easy to make and was well received with my Recipe #223199.

Recipe #336592

If you like creamsicles, or an Orange Julius you'll want to try this. It is so creamy and smooth you'll even wonder if there is alcohol in it. This is my favorite way to drink Licor 43 - actually, one of my favorites *Lol*

Do you like Oatmeal? Hot cereal? This is another great recipe handed down. Doesn't matter how old you are, when you are sick you want your Mom! Recently while being sick and not having much of an appetite, I remembered this hot cereal my mom made us girls while growing up. It's quick, comforting and sweet (But not too sweet ;) ) My mom always made this with Recipe #199171 .... you will love it and so will the kids.

If you like Maple Bar doughnuts with the sugared maple frosting, you'll love this cake! I love to experiment with flavor combinations, my family loved how it tastes just like their favorite doughnut.

This one is a twist on the famous "Greyhound" which my dear friend loves! Adding pineapple juice and *Fresh* Grapefruit juice to the vodka makes it different. I had to post this simple tasty twist for my buds in Bevy Tag ;)

Recipe #330609

I've had this recipe for ages and don't recall where I got it. My kids love these. They are so easy to throw together for potlucks, afterschool snacks or anytime you want a great peanut butter cookie. This one is different cause it uses Honey Comb Cereal.

I always have these ingredients on hand and can whip these tropical smoothies up in no time. The berry medley consists of raspberry, blueberry, strawberry and blackberry. This makes a great afternoon snack or when the boys are headed for football practice. I'll make one before going to the grocery store, so I don't go hungry.... yawl know what I'm talking about!

Recipe #321147

When I want to pamper myself after rushing around in the morning getting the kids fed, dressed and 3 carpools later. I brew fresh espresso, add my three favs...Amarula, Creme de Cocao and Chambord. Take a moment and pamper yourself too.

This is a wonderful way to have your after dinner coffee or espresso. Adding just a hint of Licor 43 makes it a heavenly aromatic experience. I add this in my fresh brewed espresso and enjoy the moment.

I have to order Licor 43 from BevMo as I can't find it in my area. This recipe was included with the bottle I just received. Sounds yummy.

When the weather changes and starts getting cool, I get out my cocoa and favorite mug. This is a creamy sinful cocoa that I enjoy curled up by the fire. If you like chocolate and raspberries (Chambord), try this one.

Recipe #334188

It doesn't get any easier than this. Mix all the ingredients, turn upside down everyday and Viola, you have your very own homemade Brandy Liqueur. Not sure where this recipe has been hiding, but I recently found it and wanted to get it on Zaar before I lost it again. I didn't see another one like it on this site, so I am sharing mine. Start now and you'll have it ready to share by the holidays.
