Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Stew

October 31, 2016
This Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Stew is the perfect way to enjoy slow cooker buffalo chicken in soup form! Warm and comforting with a kick of hot sauce and blue cheese!

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken

Here is an AMAZING deal on chicken! Zaycon Fresh is offering high quality boneless skinless chicken breasts for $1.89/lb, plus use code WELCOME99 for your first purchase, which brings it down to $0.99/lb!! Click here to check it out!

I've been on the rampage lately trying, tweaking, and creating dinner recipes that are not only delicious and filling, but CHEAP. We love our days indulging in takeout, and hot wings are one of those fast dinner solutions for us when we're short on time and everyone is hungry. We typically will get hot wings for us and a pizza for the kids to share. $40 gone, right there! I'll talk about it here on Mostly Homemade Mom until I'm blue in the face: it's SO much cheaper to eat at home.

I know we're not alone here, in our 30's, and really coming to terms with how to both pay off student loan debt and save money at the same time. Do you save more than you pay off or vice versa? I really don't know if there is a correct answer to that question! But I will say that one of the things we have to do is have automatic transfers to our savings account, and automatic additional payments made to student loans - BEFORE that money hits our account. If it's in there, I will inevitably use it. Out of sight, out of mind - am I right?!

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Stew

I am here to tell you that while you may need to cut back on your food budget, you absolutely do not need to sacrifice flavor in any way. This Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Stew is absolute proof of that! Paired with a great sale on boneless skinless chicken breasts and canned Great Northern beans, this entire recipe came WELL under $10 for the entire recipe. All four of us had plenty for dinner that night, and I was left with three containers of soup in the fridge that I enjoyed for lunch that week.

This is such a great recipe to freeze leftovers, too! I'm not a blue cheese fan, but Paul is and he actually said he preferred the sour cream topping instead. Feel free to add extra hot sauce to your bowl if you'd like - this was actually just enough heat for the boys to handle so hopefully yours would, too.

Crockpot Sweet Potato Chili

October 26, 2016
This Crockpot Sweet Potato Chili is the perfect meatless chili recipe! Diced sweet potatoes, tomatoes, onion, beans, and spices - be sure to serve this with some yummy cornbread!

Sweet Potato Chili

Oh my wow, you guys. I seriously have 3 recipes tested, approved, and photographed ready to share here with you. I swear to you I made this Crockpot Sweet Potato Chili for dinner TONIGHT! I honestly could not wait to share the recipe with you.

I was a tiny bit strategic in dinner tonight since Paul hates sweet potatoes and he has been out at a meeting over dinner. I switched our menu plan around a little bit since the boys and I could eat sweet potatoes any day of the week. I used to share my weekly menu plans with you all, but I found that I like to have a good mix of homemade dinners, frozen dinners that I stock up on at our local grocery outlet, and - yes - eating out. My family's favorite grocery store frozen dinners are:
  • Pierogies w/veggies
  • Frozen pizza
  • Tortellini or Ravioli with sauce and garlic bread
  • Fish filets w/veggies, or for making fish tacos
  • Breaded chicken strips or chicken patties on rolls with cheese

I've found lately with our family of 5, this is what works best for us. I plan on 7 different dinners during the week, make a list and shop for the ingredients we need for those dinners, and I make what I feel like making on any particular night. Honestly, that's my style completely. I like to plan, but I definitely need a level of flexibility.

Sweet Potato Crock Pot Chili

So if you've been failing at the menu plan thing lately, give my method a try! Jot down 5 - 7 dinners that you'd like to make this week - being sure to incorporate a few frozen dinner favorites. This also helps me to take advantage of whatever sale is going on or whatever I spot super cheap at our grocery outlet or Aldi. 

Sweet Potato Meatless Chili Recipe

This meatless chili recipe is SO EASY and I promise you won't miss the beef! I served this topped with sour cream, cheddar cheese, and alongside cornbread muffins.

    I didn't even mention how much the kiddos loved this. I won them over first with the cornbread muffins, but bowls of this chili with sour cream and cheese in front of them - they were in heaven! And this is definitely a dinner I would happily give out seconds to whoever asked!

    Frosted Pumpkin Bars

    October 24, 2016
    These Frosted Pumpkin Bars are a perfect dessert this fall! Moist pumpkin bars with cream cheese frosting and fun fall sprinkles!

    Frosted Pumpkin Bars

    Last year on Black Friday, we purchased season tickets for our family to a local amusement park here in Lancaster. Not only did it give us fun all summer with the rides and the water park, they also offer a fun Halloween Trick-or-Treat event for the weekends in October. It's so fun!

    We met up with friends of ours and family there last weekend. The boys were all dressed up in their costumes and they had a great time. The weather was perfect, too! Of course they insisted on going on the monorail ride. We warned them the line would be long, since it's a popular ride, but it's really slow moving.

    We had no idea.

    I went on the monorail once in the beginning of the summer and, needless to say, that was my last! I'm not a real big fan of heights and the swaying back and forth as the wind hit the ride... definitely not for me. I thought the wait during the summer was long.

    Frosted Pumpkin Bars Recipe

    Try waiting over an hour! All the while attempting to occupy a one-year-old who just wants to stretch his legs and crawl around. Yeah, I tried that. In about 3 seconds he had various sized pieces of mulch and leaves in his mouth. That kid is FAST!

    Unfortunately because the wait for the ONE ride was so long, we needed to leave as soon as they were done - those boys were not happy! Luckily, this past weekend I was able to take them again and leave Paul at home with Reuben. It was much chillier this weekend, but they still had loads of fun. These boys may drive me nuts some days, but they truly are my best friends!

    These Frosted Pumpkin Bars are a great treat to have on hand after a day of fall fun with your family. They remind me of a pumpkin version of moist, fudgy brownies. I went the shortcut route and topped them with my favorite cream cheese frosting from the store, but you could certainly make your own instead!

    Apple Pie Cake

    October 18, 2016
    This super simple Apple Pie Cake is the perfect dessert this holiday season! Fresh chopped apples, flour sugar, and spices - baked in a pie plate and topped with whipped cream!

    Apple Pie Cake

    I love to have recipes like this on hand for when we have a few stray apples that no one is interested in eating. This usually happens in our family with various fruits and vegetables and I know I can't be the only one! 

    In this particular case, we had 5 or 6 apples that had been forgotten in the bottom of our counter top fruit basket. The boys are really funny; they go through periods of time where they're on a specific fruit kick. Of course after they were through the "apple phase" that turned into the "mandarin orange" phase. I think that was kicked off at Reuben's birthday party when I set out a huge bowl of them. I think Wesley and my nephew Elliott ate almost the whole bowl themselves! I was actually really happy because there are definitely worse things they could be binge eating, that's for sure.

    Apple Pie Cake Recipe

    Anyway, I discovered some apples that had skin that was just starting to wrinkle a bit. As I cut inside, the fruit was perfectly fine! But I knew there was NO WAY the boys would eat them just by looking at the outside. Baked goods are usually where ugly fruit goes in this house, and this Apple Pie Cake is no different! Apple pie is my all-time favorite dessert. Yes, even over chocolate. I know that is very hard to believe! This is a great dessert to make when you have company coming at the last minute, but also good to take to Thanksgiving dinner as well.

    Apple Pie Cake


    Apple pie ingredients made into a cake recipe and topped with whipped cream.

    Prep time: , Cook time: , Total time:
    Yield: 8 servings

    1/2 cup butter, softened
    1 egg
    1 cup sugar
    1 teaspoon apple pie spice
    1 cup flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    2 1/2 cups peeled and chopped apples
    whipped cream
  • Beat butter, egg, and sugar in a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, stir together apple pie spice, flour, salt, and baking soda.
  • Gradually beat flour mixture into the sugar mixture until just moistened.
  • Gently stir in chopped apples. Spread into a greased pie dish.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 30 - 35 minutes. Serve warm with whipped cream.

    This was one of our new favorite desserts in this house. It is absolutely perfect with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream and a drizzle of caramel ice cream topping, too.

    Crescent Macaroon Bars

    I have this crazy two-sided personality where I absolutely love the idea of socializing and having friends over for meals and coffee. And then there's this other side of me where I just want to cuddle up with my people under a blankie and a cup of coffee while watching a movie on the weekend.

    I think what happens is, I LOVE the idea of having people over. Chatting casually about our lives, laughing with each other, and just generally enjoying the company of others. Of course this ideas always revolves around a special menu of some kind. Most recently, it was Crockpot Holiday Party Meatball Sandwiches and these delicious Crescent Macaroon Bars.

    Crescent Coconut Macaroons

    The reality, though, is that having people over when you're raising three young children, is a metric TON of work. I'm proud to say our house in generally clean and organized, for the most part, at any given time. I don't know what it is, but kids seems to sense that when you've invited guests over to visit, they can't help but make bigger messes with their toys and food than they normally would. UGH!

    Nevertheless, I never regret having friends over. It's just that, by the end of the night, I'm utterly exhausted. It doesn't help that I'm a hopeless introvert, either! Friends, if you're anything like me and the way our family operates while preparing for company, I have one thing covered that you don't need to stress about - these Crescent Macaroon Bars!

    Green Bean Casserole Shepherd's Pie

    October 13, 2016

    As the holidays begin to sneak up, you'll want to have this Green Bean Casserole Shepherd's Pie recipe on hand! The perfect mashup between green bean casserole and shepherd's pie, topped with mashed potatoes and fried onions, yum!

    Green Bean Casserole Shepherd's Pie

    The chilly fall air has arrived, friends! I couldn't be happier. One of the aspects of autumn that I love most is opening up the windows, getting some fresh air through the house, and snuggling under blankets on the couch with my littles. They are seriously the best cuddlers in the world, even if I do have to force Silas to give me a hug and a kiss every day at 7 years old!

    It's around this time of year that I look forward to having friends over for dinner and brainstorming new comfort-food recipe ideas. We really love Thanksgiving dinner, but we really don't make our Thanksgiving favorites year-round. Often times on Thanksgiving, we have SO MUCH FOOD that I don't even really get a chance to do more than just taste all my favorite dishes. Before I know it I'm completely full only to have to wait until next year to enjoy all those yummy foods.

    Green Bean Casserole Shepherd's Pie Recipe

    One of our must-have side dishes at holiday dinners is the classic green bean casserole. Canned green beans, cream of mushroom soup, seasonings, and french fried onions - this side dish is always one of the first to be polished off. This recipe for Green Bean Casserole Shepherd's Pie is a "mashup" of that famous green bean casserole, and one of our favorite weeknight dinners. Adding ground beef, cheese, and Idaho Spuds Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes makes this side dish a very filling, and very tasty, dinner. One that's worthy of the holiday dinner table, as well!

    Green Bean Casserole Shepherd's Pie



    Prep time: , Cook time: , Total time:
    Yield: 9 servings

    1 lb ground beef
    14 oz can cut green beans, drained

    1 clove garlic, minced
    2 (4 oz) packets Idaho Spuds Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes
    4 cups water
    1/2 cup French fried onions
    1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

  • Brown ground beef, drain, and return to pan. Stir in green beans, soup, and garlic. Simmer 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, bring water to a boil, stir in mashed potato flakes, and remove from heat. Fluff with fork.
  • Spread ground beef mixture into the bottom of a square baking dish. Top evenly with mashed potatoes. Sprinkle with onions.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake an additional 5 minutes or until cheese is melted and casserole is bubbly.
  • Allow casserole to rest 5 minutes before serving.

    This was totally comfort food at its finest! Such a warm and inviting dinner which instantly became a new recipe tradition in our home - from our family to yours!

    Idaho Spuds is one of my all-time favorite shortcuts that I use in my kitchen for weeknight dinners and for special holiday meals as well. Idaho Spuds Roasted Garlic is our favorite variety and it pairs well with so many meals. Five "downrightdelicious" flavors that make a great plus one for the holidays, I can't wait to try the rest!

    Spooky Bat Halloween Rice Krispie Treats

    October 11, 2016
    This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kellogg's® Rice Krispies®. As always, all opinions are my own.

    These Spooky Bat Rice Krispies® Treats are so easy! Classic Kellogg's® Rice Krispies® Treats drizzled in orange melted chocolate and topped with halved chocolate sandwich cookies and candy eyes. Such a perfect treat for Halloween!

    It is BARELY October and we are already having decision issues with Halloween costumes over here. It was probably my fault, since a local discount store was having a one-day-only deal on Halloween costumes - so I pressured the boys into telling me what they wanted to be this year. OH MAN was that a discussion!

    Reuben's costume is done. Silas and Wesley absolutely love dressing up as various superheroes, but this year has been different. Silas announced that he wanted to be a specific cartoon green ninja, and Wesley wanted to be a pro-wrestler. I can do the green ninja, but a pro-wrestler? We don't watch wrestling, like AT ALL. He's currently obsessed with the funny memes right now; he thinks they're hilarious. 

    So off to the store I go - of course they had nothing anywhere near Wesley's choice on the racks. The stars must of aligned that day for Silas, though, because they had the exact cartoon green ninja he wanted. Do you know what he did when he took the first look at it after school that day?

    He proceeded to tell me that he'd like to check out the other costumes in the store first. THESE KIDS! So, after a quick return, both boys chose generic green and blue ninja costumes, mainly because they both came with swords and throwing stars. I'm already exhausted and it's barely Halloween season, yet!

    Needless to say, I have little time on my hands right now with three active kiddos - but I really do like making them fun treats to celebrate the holidays. I LOVE finding easy and creative treats to serve them and their friends, and these Spooky Bat RICE KRISPIES® Treats are perfect! 

    Start with a regular batch of treats:

    Drizzle orange melted chocolate over each treat. While the chocolate is still melted, position two halves of a chocolate sandwich cookie, fanned out to look like bat wings!

    Then just add candy eyes and they're done - can't be more simple than that!

    Spooky Bat Halloween Rice Krispies® Treats


    Kellogg's® Rice Krispies® Treats with drizzled orange chocolate and bat decorations using chocolate sandwich cookies.

    Prep time: , Cook time: , Total time:
    Yield: 15 treats

    3 tablespoons butter
    10.5 oz package marshmallows
    6 cups Kellogg's® Rice Krispies®
    1 cup orange melting chocolate
    6 chocolate sandwich cookies, separated with filling scraped off
    24 candy eyes

  • Melt butter in a stockpot on low heat. Add marshmallows and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until completely melted.
  • Remove from heat and stir in Kellogg's® Rice Krispies®. Stir well, making sure cereal is well coated.
  • Press into a well-greased 9 x 13 baking dish. Allow to cool to room temperature.
  • Slice evenly into 15 squares. Place squares on a lined cookie sheet.
  • Prepare "bat wings" by carefully breaking cookies into halves. Melt orange chocolate according to package directions.
  • Drizzle chocolate over treats. Lay fanned out cookie halves into chocolate, resembling bat wings. Attach candy eyes with additional melted chocolate. Allow to cool completely. Store in an airtight container before serving.

  • I can't even tell you how nutty the boys went as they heard me explain to them how I was going to decorate these treats. They HAD to help me, and I think they did an awesome job, don't you? A treat both kids and adults can pull together - now that's what I call easy!

    There are honestly countless ways to be creative with Kellogg's® Rice Krispies® Treats for Halloween - it's a complete blank canvas to create your own. I love that it's not only yummy to eat, but part of the fun is getting together with your kids and making them together as well. Be sure to visit #RiceKrispies on Pinterest and Facebook for more easy Halloween treat ideas this fall season!

    Crockpot Brown Sugar Acorn Squash

    October 7, 2016
    This Crockpot Brown Sugar Acorn Squash is the perfect fall side dish recipe! Halved acorn squash, filled with brown sugar and raisins, and slow cooked until sweet and buttery!

    Crockpot Brown Sugar Acorn Squash

    Pumpkin, squash, and sweet potatoes - the vegetables we think of during the beautiful autumn season! Well, gourds too, but I believe most people use those for decorative reasons, rather than cooking. I see them sitting with pumpkins on the side of the road at farm stands and they're so pretty! Acorn squash has been one fall vegetable I've been wanting to try on my own for quite a while.

    One trip through local grocery stores in my area and I've found an explosion of all sorts of squash varieties. To be honest with you, I think they probably carry them year round. But walking into the produce departments, you'd never know that! Filled in rustic baskets and perched on hay bales along with beautiful blooming mums. And my favorite part: the price!

    I was able to snag acorn squash last week for $.49 each - that's a steal! If you're able to catch a deal like that in your area, don't feel bad about stocking up - kept in a dry cupboard, acorn squash can last up to 4 weeks. Plus, you can cook it and then freeze it for even longer enjoyment!

    Crockpot Acorn Squash

    This Crockpot Brown Sugar Acorn Squash is a sweet side dish - though it would be great on it's own for lunch as I can attest! They can be hard to slice in half, I sliced into it, rotated slicing around, and finally pulled the halves apart when I came to the stem. 

    Crockpot Brown Sugar Acorn Squash


    Acorn squash halves stuffed with raisins, brown sugar, and spices and cooked in a Crockpot.

    Prep time: , Cook time: , Total time:
    Yield: 4 servings

    2 acorn squash, halved and seeded
    3/4 cup brown sugar
    2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
    3/4 cup raisins
    1/3 cup butter, sliced thin
    1/2 cup water
  • In a medium bowl, stir together brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice. Stir in raisins.
  • Spoon mixture into cavity of each acorn squash half.
  • Wrap each half tightly in aluminum foil. Place into Crockpot, rearranging as necessary to make sure lid can shut securely.
  • Pour water into bottom of Crockpot. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours.
  • Allow squash to cool slightly before unwrapping and serving.

    I can't even begin to tell you how wonderful this made my entire kitchen smell! I'm honestly planning on making a large batch of these for Thanksgiving, I think the entire family will love having these along with their turkey and other side dishes. Plus, how pretty they look on a plate, too!
