A Slow Cooker Kind of Day!

Yes, its just another one of those days! Plus, I can use it to get more points in the Allstar program! This month the Allstar members were encouraged to try at least 3 slow cooker recipes from the site! We get one point for every recipe we make (up to 3 points)...these points go towards chances to win a prize at the end of each month.

So, today I'm planning on making a cassoulet...isn't that just a fancy way of saying casserole!  The 'cassoulet' has chicken and kielbasa in it! Along with beans, onions and some other tasty ingredients! It sounded unique, so I thought I would try it because I just LOVE unique recipes! If its a winner, I'll post it here later...with pics!

I just realized that I blab...I mean blog, so much about the Allstar program, but I've never supplied ALL the info on the program! Here's the link to everything you may want to know about this fun program! If it sounds like something you might be interested in, then sign up! Its free and fun!     Allstar Program Info - Click here


The cassoulet tonight, needed a super tweak! I tasted it before I served it and it was very bland! So I decided to fix it by adding some liquid smoke, chicken broth, shredded cheddar cheese and cream cheese. This gave it some creamy texture and a perfect smokey, cheesy flavor! Here is my photo and the link to my version of the recipe!

Here's a little kitchen tip that I'd like to share! I've been doing this for many years and it's so helpful! I used to have such a problem with where to put my recipe while I'm matter where I would put it, it would always be in the way! So I finally came up with a solution! I  glued a magnet on the underside of one of my top kitchen cabinets. This is just a piece of a refrigerator magnet. You know the kind that local businesses give away as advertisement! I cut it into a strip and just glued it under the front edge of my upper cabinet.

    Then I cut another same size strip to use as the holder for the recipe. So when I want to keep my recipe at easy sight, I just put it between the two magnets and its right there for me to see, without being in my way! The recipe stays off my counter top and out of my way, but not out of my sight!

This is how the recipe hangs from the cabinet.
Its right next to my stove.
