I am participating in Women in the Scriptures Five Things For Friday Blog Hop!
I know all of you who read this blog are waiting in breathless anticipation for a report on how my roaster oven is working out as a crockpot, so I will tell you:
I love it!
It has been so great. I have baked potatoes, lasagna, cheesy ravioli, and have plans to make slow cooker granola. It is amazing, and I bought a deep dish lasagna pan which is four inches high and fits inside so I can cook things in the pan, so it doesn’t make the roaster oven dirty.
In fact, I think it will be wonderful in the summer, because I can roast veggies in it OUTSIDE! It’s amazing. I highly recommend everyone getting one–the 22 quart Rival brand roaster can fit a 9×13 pan inside of it perfectly. I would also recommend the deep dish lasagna/roaster pan.
My amazing friend, Jen, who just had a beautiful, beautiful baby boy recommended this recipe to me. I have never soaked flour before, but I can’t wait to try it. I love muffins.
And, because her baby is positively delicious, here is the card I designed for her as a “thank you” for people who made dinners for the family. I kept it simple, because that photo is amazing:
Rather than write down all the yummy recipes I’ve seen lately, I will just suggest that you check out my Yummy Recipes board on Pinterest, and please ignore the recipes for things like brownie batter dip and cake mix waffle ice cream sandwiches (photos of sweets are my one weakness. ;) ). Some of my favorite pins are:
Okay, this may not sound delicious to you, but my baby and my sister’s baby both think it’s delicious. It is much less expensive than buying organic formula, and I love that even I can make this! I am so glad my sister tries all this stuff out first so I can just take advantage of her brilliance and experience. I know breastmilk is the most delicious, but if for some reason your baby is using formula, this is a great, wonderful alternative to buying it.
I like some of the recipes on the website “Clean and Delicious.” Her goal in the about section is:
When it comes to eating, I practice listening to my body (instead of my brain), letting go of food rules, and truly tasting and enjoying the foods that I’m eating when I’m eating them.
My ‘diet-plan’ is to never be on a diet again!
I like that philosophy, and she has lots of video tutorials on how to make minimally processed foods into simply, beautiful dishes. I liked her video on how to make really good scrambled eggs. She’s fun and cute and I love that she used coconut oil.
And, thanks again, Heather, for allowing us to hop bloggily with you!
