My Inspiration . . .

I've always had a love for baking, but it wasn't until I was in college that I had a desire to learn how to cook. In 2009, I decided to start my own cooking blog so I could access my recipes from anywhere, and was born.

I love trying new recipes and finding ways to make them healthier & happier on the hips! I love everything about food: the taste, the smells, the presentation, the experimenting, etc. I love to entertain, so I figured this was a great way to bring people together. Hope you enjoy trying out some of the recipes. Happy cooking!

I know I think all of my recipes are delicious, but there are some recipes that don't even make in on this site because they don't turn out well. I'd like to call them the "not-blog-worthy-recipes"! Ha. Soooo..that's why you will only find the good recipes on my site. ;-) Crock pot recipes are so easy!! I usually prep the recipes the day before; then all you have to do the morning of is throw everything into the crock pot, set the timer, and you're good to go! A delicious meal will be waiting for you when you get home. Not to mention, your house will smell delicious!
{ Prep Time: 15 mins / Cooking Time: 6-8 hours on low / Difficulty: Easy / Yields: 6 servings }

6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1 large egg

1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 cup Italian bread crumbs
1-2 Tbsp butter or margarine
14 oz jar pizza sauce (I used spaghetti sauce and it worked just fine)
6 slices mozzarella cheese
grated Parmesan cheese
angel hair pasta (or pasta of your choice)

1. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, salt and pepper. Using tongs, dip chicken into egg, then completely coat breasts with bread crumbs.
2. In a medium skillet, melt the butter. Then saute the chicken breasts until both sides have a golden brown crust.
3. Arrange chicken in your slow cooker. Cover chicken breasts with pizza sauce. Place lid on the crock pot and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
4. Layer mozzarella cheese over the top of each breast and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Cook an additional 15 mins.
* Serving suggestions: angel hair pasta and crusty garlic bread *
