SoFrit Chicken Gizzards & Harts in Tomato Pepper sauce

Have I got a Treat Of a recipe for your Crock Pot today. Slow Cooker Sofrit “Chicken Gizzards & Harts In a Tomato Pepper Sauce”.

Instead of Ventriglio Di Pollo or Italian Chicken Gizzards.

Gardening Memories


Gardening Memories

Growing up in the 1970s like many children I had to help my family with the gardening. Picking rocks out of the dirt as dad ran the tiller, weeding, watering it seemed like it never ended. The only thing that never ended was my brother and I complaining that we wanted to go play. We had a large garden. My mother utilized it for all the fresh vegetables we would eat that summer. And large amounts of green beans, tomatoes were canned and potatoes stored. That garden put so many sweet pickle or as my mom called them bread and butter pickles in the cellar that it was several years after we moved before I opened the last jar. Continue reading

Crock-pots- A Working Person’s Friend


Crock-pot Cooking

I don’t know about you, but I work full-time.  I also drive over 45 minutes one way to work.  This means I am gone from my home at least 10 hours a day.  By the time I get home the last thing I want to do is prepare a dinner that will take at least hour from start to finish.  This is why I started cooking in the crock-pot.  Crock-pots come in all sizes from 1 quart to about  8 quart. My favorite size is 4 1/2 quarts. That is large enough to cook a family meal but small enough to make less is you want.  You can get the fancy programmable ones, but I use a basic crock-pot with low and high settings.  This kind of crock-pot costs about $27.
