With fall in the air, (ok so its been blistering hot this week around here but fall IS coming) my mind has been on finding some new fall recipes to try.  I enjoy simple (remember I am not a great cook) recipes that require minimal work but deliver a mouthful of delicious tastes. Crockpot recipes are great especially for the busy fall schedule that I have been acquiring. With preschool, dance class, swimming lessons, playdates, social events all filling up my calendar, dinner that I can prepare in the crock pot first thing in the morning or soup I can make up the day before and heat at dinner sounds like a great idea to me.  I really love when recipes make enough that their are leftovers as well, especially if it ends up being a tasty meal.  So when you have exhausted all your cook books where do you turn? Pintrest of course! Or in my case your just always checking pinterest so it makes finding new ideas simple. Here are some of the delicious looking recipes I have found that I am going to start incorporating into my meal planning over the next few weeks. Once I find our favourites I am sure I will have them on repeat.

  And lets be honest we all love a little dessert here and there why not use our crock pots to do that too. These two recipes look so delicious I want to go make them right now. Problem is I would skip my main course and just go right to the dessert.

  So there is 10 new recipes for you to try. They all look extremely yummy and fairly easy. I think there is  something for everyone on this list. Now I need to get to work and start making them. Which ones look good to you? If you do make any of these please let me know I would love some feedback.

  • My oldest and the youngest! Family time is my favorite!
  • They are my world! I can’t imagine my life without them... sure they drive me crazy and challenge me to grow in ways I didn’t know I needed to but they have taught me I could love deeper and more than I ever thought possible, I miss them when they are at school, listening to them laugh and seeing them smile is the best feeling ever! Thank you Jesus for choosing me to be their mama, I’m undeserving but so thankful!
  • A grateful heart is a magnet for miracles! So thankful, incredibly grateful and unbelievable blessed for this life I get to live!
  • Happy Thanksgiving ... so much to be thankful for starting with these 4 cuties and their hot daddy! Cozy weather, family time and yummy food ... it’s gonna be a good day!
  • What if ...
everything you are going through is preparing you for everything you asked for?
  • “ I still remember the days I prayed for the things I have now” this picture feels a life time ago and yet I feel the emotions of that day as if it were today after long painful and scary months he was finally officially ours!!! crazy how a piece of paper could hold so much weight!  He was ours Nov 8, 2013 (the day he was born) in our mind and hearts but he officially took our last name on October 9, 2014! I love how he is looking at me in this picture as if to say “see mama all those tears and prayers where heard and answered” you’re still my boy #covethomas and you were so worth it all! #5yearsago
