Crock Pot Corned Beef Brisket with Vegetables

DELICIOUS CROCK POT Corned Beef Brisket with Vegetables recipe!  This slow cooker recipe cooks a 4 pound corned beef brisket with cabbage, carrots, potatoes and onion to create a amazing dinner! Use the leftovers the next day for the best BBQ sandwiches!

When it was my first time buying brisket many years ago, I didn’t know where to look for it at – with the meats on the shelf? Behind a refrigerated door?Is it at the meat counter?  And what does it look like?  I had no idea. So after a google image search and phone in hand, there I found it in the meat department on the top shelf all the way to the left.  
My first thought- yikes, that is expensive.
Raw Corned Beef Brisket in Grocery Store

My second thought – they had point cut and flat cut.  What is the difference?  Again… to Google I went in the meat department.  Point cut has more fat content but is more tastier.  Flat cut is less fat, less tender.  Also to note Flat cut is about twice the price (twice the yikes).  

Best type of meat for Brisket

So when I saw a reviewer saying “If you want taste, go with the Point Cut” that was it. I wanted the flavor and texture,  I wasn’t about to take that away for less fat.   If this is a special meal you have a few times a year, do the point cut – just do it.

Tri Color Pasta Salad

Easy recipe for the best tri color pasta salad!  This is the perfect Summer time salad that uses Italian dressing and fresh vegetables!

 The great thing about pasta salad is once you have the basics of pasta, salad dressing, herbs – the vegetables are really up to you.  There needs some type of tomatoes (I prefer halved grape tomatoes).   There needs to be celery chopped up.   What else?  Well that’s up to you.  You can add carrots.  You can add onions.  You can add broccoli.  You can add chopped up cauliflower.  You can can add black olives (yum!).  

Mushrooms are always a hit too, especially when they get marinated by the salad dressing.  Peas, corn, sundried tomatoes, chopped up kale – throw in whatever you  like.   To finish it all, you need some type of cheese to sprinkle all over, I like to add some shredded mozzarella.   How do you like your pasta salad?

Tri Color Pasta Salad

You can make your pasta salad with a wide variety of noodles, so use what you like.  I’ve been making our pasta salad with tri color rotini pasta.  The extra color  kick of this pasta makes it special in my opinion.   Bow ties and penne pasta are great too!

Finally, pasta salad is a favorite because you can make it advance.  You want it chilled, so all the pasta and vegetables pick up that salad dressing taste.  Plus when it’s a hot summer day, a little chilled pasta salad will bring your spirits up.    You can make this a few hours in advance, or even the day before.  If I have leftovers, I will eat it for a few days after.   The celery stays crunchy, I love that.  

Tri Color Pasta Salad

So go ahead, let’s make it feel like summer and make some tri color pasta salad.

Roasted Cauliflower Carrot Soup

HEALTHY & CREAMY Roasted Cauliflower Carrot Soup! This recipe is loaded with fresh vegetables and is so easy to make! Even though it tastes cheesy there’s no cheese in the recipe – it’s amazing! Recipe can easily be made dairy free by using almond milk.

Roasted vegetables don’t get enough love in my opinion.   Magic happens when you crank your oven up to 450 degrees, and roll your vegetables around in olive oil.   Cauliflower and carrots are good by themselves, but ROASTED cauliflower and carrots?  They are amazing!

Roasted Cauliflower Carrot Soup With bread on Side

I had some beautiful carrots that I planned on making baby puree with (which I did – with a kick of cinnamon – she loves it!), but I was left with half a pound of carrots. 

I took another glance in the refrigerator and saw a head of cauliflower that was screaming to be used.  I was feeling in the soup mood so I decided to make my family’s favorite cauliflower soup, but with a carrot twist!

This soup is so creamy – but without all the extra fat that usual creamy soups call for! In fact, there is no cheese in this soup! There is only 1 cup of milk, and if you want to make it dairy free you can easily substitute almond milk instead.

Vegetarian Collard Greens

Easy Vegetarian Collard Greens recipe.  These greens are simmered in a brown sugar vegetable broth making them full of flavor!

With lots of greens to pick in the garden we are having a side dish of collard greens weekly at the dinner table.  I love these collards so much I’ve been making a big batch to take to work to eat for lunch a few times a week (partnered with some cheese/crackers because I love a mismatched lunch).  

Vegetarian Collard Greens

So many Collard Greens recipes call for chicken broth or ham hocks, but in this recipe I’m using vegetable broth to make it Vegetarian friendly.   I’m adding a little bit of brown sugar into the vegetable broth to balance out the natural bitter flavor that collards give, but not making it too sweet.

Simple Vegetarian Collard Greens recipe. These greens are simmered in a brown sugar vegetable broth making them full of flavor!

Years ago I had some of the best collard greens in North Carolina at a Mom and Pop style restaurant.  I was shocked to find out these weren’t made with meat so I made it a goal to come up with a equally delicious recipe I could make at home!

Cauliflower Pot Pie

EASY & CREAMY Cauliflower Pot Pie Recipe! This easy Vegetarian Pot Pie uses frozen pie crusts to make a delicious dinner! The pot pie is made with cauliflower, carrots and peas filling in a creamy sauce! It’s a healthy, vegetable friendly solution to homemade chicken pot pie!

I have a confession. I wasn’t going to post this recipe.  Not because I didn’t think it was delicious and that your family would love it.  No, quite the opposite! This is one of my most popular recipes to make that often leaves friends asking “Can you give me the recipe?”.  But I wasn’t going to post it because I was ashamed of how it looked.  I had pot pie embarrassment.

I am not a expert pie maker.  I cannot make perfect crust.    I am not Marie Callender!  What my pot pie lacks in beautiful crust makes up for in taste, and that’s how I feel about this Cauliflower Pot Pie! 

Cauliflower Pot Pie in Frozen Crust

DELICIOUS Vegetable Pot Pie!

I know this Cauliflower Pot Pie is not the most beautiful pot pie you’ve ever seen.  The crust is uneven, it has caved in spots, heck it even has a crack down the middle of the pie.  But goodness gracious, this pot pie is DELICIOUS!  AND EVERY DELICIOUS POT PIE DESERVES A DAY TO SHINE!

Flaky Crust Pot Pie

So here I am.  After attempting to photograph it 3 times but putting away my camera every single time, I came back to it before the sun went down.   I googled photos of “pot pie” that looked perfect.  They were magazine cover beautiful.  And then I laughed.  Who am I kidding? I will never make the most beautiful pot pie that has intricate leaf designs cut out of it.  That’s not me.  That’s not my style. I’m Pamela.  I make messy casseroles and blueberry muffins that sometimes fall apart.

4 HOUR Juicy Slow Cooker Whole Chicken

4 HOUR JUICY Slow Cooker Meal for a 6 Pound Whole Chicken!  This easy recipe makes the entire meal in the crock pot, including potatoes and other vegetables!  You’ll love how simple it is to cook a HEALTHY Rotisserie Chicken meal!  This is one of my favorite Crockpot dinners!

I’ve been really big on Slow Cooker recipes lately.  Just last week I shared with you my Slow Cooker Bread, and this week I’m sharing the main course to go with it – a whole chicken!   This chicken is juicy, full of flavor and is so easy to make!  
4 HOUR JUICY Slow Cooker Meal for a 6 Pound Whole Chicken!  This easy recipe makes the entire meal in the crock pot, including potatoes and other vegetables!  You'll love how simple it is to cook a HEALTHY Rotisserie Chicken meal!  This is one of my favorite crockpot dinners!

This recipe makes a 5-7 pound whole chicken in the slow cooker in about 4 hours on high.  Alternatively you could set it to 7 hours on low. 

 The key to making a juicy chicken in the slow cooker is that you want to give it some liquid to become moist, but you don’t want it to sit in the liquid.  The solution is that you cut up a bunch of vegetables so the chicken has a “bed” to be placed on, keeping it above the liquid for the majority of cooking time.

For the liquid I used chicken broth, to keep the flavor in the right pallet. You could however play around with it! Do you want a citrus zest? Add some orange juice. Apple juice will add some sweetness. Just remember your veggies are cooking in it as well.

What that also does is provide you a full meal, so you have your whole chicken and vegetables! I cut up potatoes, celery, carrots and onions to place in the bottom of the slow cooker.

It’s good to use thick, dense veggies so that they don’t get too soft and mushy sitting in the crockpot for hours. Thinking about a low-carb option? Use cauliflower instead of potatoes.

KFC Flaky Biscuits

Copycat KFC Flaky Biscuits recipe.   These buttery rolls are so easy to make! 
 

What is the best thing to serve with soup? Oh, you got it right Sista.  It’s biscuits.  I like my biscuits flaky.  I like them warm. I like a little butter on top.  I love when they crumble apart.  I also love to give them a little dive into the soup bowl. When I was little my mom worked at KFC (that’s Kentucky Fried Chicken if you didn’t know).  I’m not going to lie, I love that place.  Their biscuits, their mashed potatoes – hello big bucket of goodness. 

Copycat KFC Southern Style Flaky Biscuits recipe. These are the perfect buttery biscuits to serve with soup!

I’m pretty sure this is illegal to the KFC conduct codebook but my mom would sometimes sneak me a extra biscuit.  That’s when I knew I was a good girl that day.  Off I went with a smile and my 2 warm biscuits.  What I loved about theirs was how flaky yet soft their biscuits were. They didn’t taste “bready” or heavy. They were light but delicious.

Course Side Dish
Servings 12

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter cold
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk

Instructions

  1. *It's very important that you use chilled butter for this, that will make sure the biscuits are flaky. You can refrigerate or freeze the butter, don't use room temperature or melted butter.*
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  3. In a bowl mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar.
  4. Slowly start to cut butter in the flour mixture. You can either grate the butter or I use a knife to cut into small pieces. Keep cutting butter in until it's all gone. You want the mixture to look like crumbs.
  5. Mix in buttermilk.
  6. Knead dough in bowl for 30 seconds.
  7. Transfer to a greased baking sheet and roll out with your hands into a 7x7 piece. With a knife, cut 12 sections but don't don't cut all the way or separate them. This will make them easy to rip apart when done.
  8. Bake 15 minutes.
  9. When out of the oven, cut into sections and serve hot.

MINI Sweet Potato Casseroles With Brown Sugar Pecan Topping

The BEST BAKED MINI Sweet Potato Casseroles with BROWN SUGAR Pecan Topping! This easy Southern recipe uses BAKED sweet potatoes to really bring out the flavor! There is a delicious brown sugar pecan crumble on top! I love baking these as mini casseroles as it’s a beautiful presentation at Thanksgiving dinner and everyone gets to eat their own! You can even make these ahead of time and heat up!

Next year we are growing sweet potatoes in the garden because this year I finally fell in love with them in the kitchen! You might have seen my creamy Sweet Potato soup last week (if you missed it, it’s here), well now I’m back with a Sweet Potato Casserole in Mini individual size!

These MINI Sweet Potato Casseroles With Brown Sugar Pecan Topping are so cute and so delicious! Everyone gets to eat their own mini casserole so they’re going to be a hit at the next holiday dinner!

Let’s talk sweet potatoes first, ok?  The way to bring out the flavor of sweet potatoes isn’t by boiling them, but by baking them!  Trust me on this!  If you did a taste test with a boiled and baked sweet potato, and then mashed it, you would absolutely agree  that the baked sweet potato is SO much better!  So for this recipe, we’re going to bake the sweet potatoes first before mashing for the casserole.  Yes, I know, it’s one additional step, but it’s WORTH IT!  I would never make you do more work if the pay off wasn’t big!

To bake the sweet potatoes preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grab your sweet potatoes and pierce them with a fork a few times (fun holiday stress activity!). Place the sweet potatoes on a cookie sheet and bake for 90 minutes. Remove the potatoes from the oven. Hold the sweet potatoes with a potholder (they’re hot!) and the potato will pop right out of it’s skin. Discard the skin. Use a potato masher or hand mixer to mash the sweet potatoes.   It’s that easy!  Once your sweet potatoes are baked then we’re ready to begin making these mini casseroles!  If you’re worried about the extra 90 minutes of baking time, you could bake these sweet potatoes a day in advance so they’re all ready for you!
