Crockpot Spaghetti Sauce Recipe

 

 Spaghetti sauce (or tomato gravy to my Italian friends) is a staple in most households. Rather than watching over the pot for a long, slow-cooked version on the stove, it’s just as easy to toss it all in the crockpot. You won’t need to worry about stirring or boilovers, and […]

Alfredo Chicken Bubble-Up Recipe

 Meatballs are not just for spaghetti, as you well know. These mini-meatballs may be served as an entree over rice, noodles, couscous, biscuits, or mashed potatoes. They also work well as a cocktail appetizer for your next party. Use any leftovers as a basis for a quick soup or stew, […]
