Crock Pot BBQ Beer Chicken

Last week, I worked close to 12-hour days Monday-Thursday, so cooking was the last thing I wanted to do when I got home!  I needed some new Crock Pot recipes to try, and this recipe from Jessica over at How Sweet it Is blog looked so delicious, I couldn’t wait to try it! How nice to throw a bunch of stuff into the Crock Pot and walk through the door after work to a meal ready to eat!

Balsamic Pulled Pork Sammy

I love barbeque.  Do you love barbeque?  I’ve never met a pulled pork bbq sammy I didn’t like.  In my freezer, I had a 2.5 lb pork shoulder to use up, so I thawed it out and decided to throw it in my Crock Pot before I left for work.

Spaghetti Squash Spaghetti with Turkey Meatballs

Spaghetti Squash Spaghetti with Turkey Meatballs


I am nearly thirty-years-old, and I had never truly even heard of such thing as “spaghetti squash” until the last year or so. I’ve never really liked other kinds of squash (summer squash, butternut, etc)., but after several friends insisted that spaghetti squash “noodles” were just as good as regular spaghetti noodles, I decided to give it a try. I was a little overwhelmed by all the different ways to fix spaghetti squash, but I decided to whip up a marinara sauce, make some turkey meatballs, and see how it all turned out.

Meaty Baked Spaghetti

If you’re familiar with our blog, you can probably tell that we like our spaghetti around here.  In fact, I believe Mrs. Herb is working on a Spaghetti Recipe Comparison post, so I won’t point out all of our other spaghetti posts.  I will say, though, that I’ve only posted one baked spaghetti recipe, Creamy Baked Spaghetti, and this recipe is pretty similar.  However, this one leaves out the cream cheese and is much meatier and, in my opinion, more flavorful.

Spinach, Feta, and Tomato Pizza

Yesterday, Mister Spice and I were out of school (work) due to snow. Snow days are lovely, but it kind of threw off my plans to have leftovers for dinner. Why, you ask? Well, it just seemed like with a whole snow day ahead of me, I could come up with something better than the leftovers we had been working on since Monday.

Grab your slow cooker and prepare for some delicious, cheesy comfort food!

So here it is, March 5th, and we are potentially getting ready to see the most snow we’ve seen all winter here via Winter Storm Saturn! I must say, I’m ready for spring and warm weather, but I do loooooove me some snow, so I’m actually quite excited!

For Valentine’s Day, I decided to surprise Mr. Herb with a home-cooked candlelit dinner at home. We actually celebrated a couple of days before Valentine’s Day, because we left immediately after work on February 14th to spend the weekend in Charleston, stopping along the way to visit Mr. Herb’s wonderful sister and brother-in-law!

Baked “Fried” Chicken

Baked Fried Chicken


Sometimes, I just crave a big piece of fried chicken.  I rarely fried chicken, but I think it’s a wonderful (albeit fattening) creation.  Amy, over at Our Life Uncommon blog, posted this recipe for baked chicken breasts that mimic the “fried” effect, so I decided to give it a try!

Baked Sweet and Sour Pork Chops

Sweet and Sour Pork Chops


Last week I did a massive freezer clean-out, and realized that I had enough pork chops to feed an army. Pork chops aren’t my favorite thing to fix, and I get tired of doing the same thing with them. So, I found a recipe posted by Miriam on that looked super easy and fairly healthy.
