Do you have a BBQ or cookout coming up? It seems like my calendar is filling up with all sorts of outdoor potlucks! I am always looking for a great dish to share among friends, and this Easy 30 Minute Baked Beans Recipe is just the ticket. I got the recipe from Baking with Mom and she claimed these were the BEST baked beans. She was right! I love the smoky, savory, and sweet flavors all mixed into one! The baked beans worked great as a side dish, but they were also wonderful served on top of hot dogs and over tortilla chips….
My sister and brother-in-law came to Tennessee for a spontaneous visit a couple weeks ago, and I wanted to show off the fun things Knoxville has to offer. It was an exquisite day, so I decided to take them to The Fruit and Berry Patch where we could pick our own organic strawberries. Later that night we had a Bible study where I was able to take this Easy No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake for dessert. It completely satisfied my sweet tooth but wasn’t heavy or overly filling. It was fun to showcase the strawberries we picked from a local farm just a few miles from home….
May has been a very busy month and we’re only half way through! We’ve had end-of-the-year parties, Mother’s Day, my son’s kindergarten graduation (how is this happening already?), baby showers, bridal showers, and a host of birthday parties. At some of these events I have needed to contribute a potluck type dish and wanted to make something healthy, tasty, and pretty. This Greek pasta salad with feta cheese was just the ticket because it was flavorful, easy to prepare ahead of time, and full of bright colors. Let me show you how I made it: …
Baby-back ribs, you say? In the Crockpot? Isn’t that like, sacrilegious? No, no it’s not and let me tell you why. What is a rib lover looking for in the perfect rib?

Super saucy sauce.
This recipe gives you all that without setting up a smokehouse, using a billion ingredients to make your own rub or sauce, or making a mess in the kitchen. It’s the best of both worlds! My rib-loving husband was happily surprised by this recipe and I think you will be too! …
I think some gluten-free food has gotten a bad reputation. I am here to tell you that that is not always the case! This Crockpot Gluten-Free Vegetarian Lasagna is super delicious and healthy. You’ll see proof, in the pictures below, that even my 4-year-old likes this recipe! As I have shared my recipes with more and more people, one of the main questions I get asked is, “Do you have any gluten-free recipes?” My family does not have any allergies so I have not had to consider cooking this way. However, there are several families where eating gluten-free is a way of life and essential just for coping with unwanted symptoms. So I set out to try a couple recipes that I could honest-to-goodness support as being gluten-free and delicious. This gluten-free lasagna has an added plus in that it is made in the Crockpot and makes your house smell wonderful by the end of the day….
