Holiday Slow Cooker

With the holiday season upon us, I know I am always looking for ways to make it less stressful. A way to do that is to use your slow cooker where you can put in your meal and then forget about it till its done! That is where Holiday Slow Cooker comes in. With the perfectly adapted recipes in this book, you can prepare all the holiday classics without spending hours in the kitchen! Just toss the ingredients for your meal into the slow cooker and go enjoy your family and friends while dinner is cooking in the other room.

Holiday Slow Cooker has everything from appetizers to delicious sides to enticing entrées to heavenly desserts. Even though we have Christmas right around the corner, there are recipes in here for Easter to Thanksgiving too! Sugar baked apples, s’more fondue, pulled pork, cheesy bacon potatoes — these are just a few of the recipes in here!

With full-color photos and great recipes, Holiday Slow Cooker allows you to craft perfect dinners with minimal stress, and the benefits of using a slow cooker go beyond tasty meals. They allow you to free up space on the stove, let dessert cook while you are enjoying dinner, keep dishes warm for fabulous party dips, fondues and allows you to enjoy your own parties!


I have driven past HoneyBaked so many times. I just assumed that they just had ham. I don’t make ham a lot and I don’t normally have to make too many big dinners so they never really crossed my radar. However, I will be the first to admit how wrong I was.

Did you know that HoneyBaked caters? Did you know you can walk into HoneyBaked and eat lunch? Did you know that you can stop in there and get an easy and affordable meal for your family for dinner tonight? Me either! That’s one of the many things I learned the evening last week I went and got to check out HoneyBaked.

One of the many things I learned that night was that they glaze the hams right in the store. We actually got to watch them do it. (It was pretty cool.) They use a gluten free glaze and only glaze the amount of hams they will need for the day (to keep the ham fresh). Now, you can walk in and request exactly what you want too. (Though, they do a darn good job with it!).

What other products does HoneyBaked carry? They have port, beef, turkey roasts, ribs, shredded beef, and pork in barbecue sauce for sandwiches, deli sides, whole turkeys, desserts, turkey breasts, thin sliced honey bacon, and more.  I got to try a lot of it:

It was so good. Good just doesn’t describe how good it was though. It tasted homemade. The cinnamon apples literally melted in your mouth. I could easily pick this up for a holiday and pass it off that I made it at home (though it was way better than anything I could have made at home!). Little things like fresh bread delivered daily and fresh produce delivered three times a week make a difference. It makes their food all that much better than everyone else out there!

If you like their food, they have a great loyalty program too. If you buy 5 dinners, you get the 6th one for 50% off! The lunch box card is buy five lunches and get the 6th one free.

Want to try HoneyBaked now that I’ve made you hungry? You can! Here is a coupon for $10 off, so you can enjoy HoneyBaked for dinner tonight!

Ritz Crackerfuls

We’ve all been there. Your hungry and you are looking for something good to eat in your house that’s healthy.  I’ll be honest — I’ve munch on chips and chocolate.  Granted, I know that’s not the best thing to be eating, but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do!  That is why I am so happy to learn about Ritz Crackerfuls!

Ritz Crackerfuls are crackers with some very yummy fillings between them.  They currently have four varieties — garlic herb, four cheese, classic cheddar, and cheddar cheese & bacon.  My family and I got to try the Classic Cheddar and Cheddar Cheese & Bacon.  One word for you:  YUM!  These snacks are sooooo good.  Each crackerful is made with 6 grams of whole grains and real cheese.  My favorite part has to be the packaging though.  They are individually wrapped in their own sleeve.  You don’t have to worry about smashing it in your purse or diaper bag.  Best of all, they are really filling.  The kids and I have been snacking on these, and I’m not sure if we can go back to plain crackers!

Now, that I have made you all hungry, I’ve got some great news.  Check out the Ritz Crackers Facebook page where you can get a $1 Off Cheddar Cheese & Bacon Crackerfuls! This is good through August 31, 2010 or up to just over 33k coupon prints.  Happy snacking!
