I am sitting at my desk in a sweater drinking a hot cup of coffee as I write this, trying to warm up. As the weather gets cooler and we head into winter, I am looking for some good, old fashioned comfort food recipes. To me, nothing says comfort more than a steaming bowl of soup on a cold day. Because I am pressed for time, I try and use my crock pot whenever I can. I love to fact that I can have a hearty soup cooking while I go about my day. There are some great family friendly recipes here, along with familiar favorites made easy. Hope you enjoy these 25 Slow Cooker Soup Recipes!
If you have spent any time at all at Mess for Less (first of all thank you!) then you know that crescent rolls and I are friends. Good friends. There are so many family friendly recipes you can make with store bought crescent rolls, whether you are looking for a sweet or savory treat. Plus they are loved by kids, always a win in my house. We have made more crescent roll recipes than you can shake a stick at such as Pepperoni Pizza Crescents and Peach Pie Crescents. Today, I am combining three of my favorite ingredients: crescent rolls, cheese and pesto for these simple Cheesy Pesto Crescents.
Are you looking to make your time in the kitchen easier? I know I am. Maybe you are just looking for those ideas that will help you use ordinary kitchen items in new and helpful ways. The sponsor of today's post, Fresh & Easy, gets that life is crazy busy for lots of us. When they asked me to share a kitchen hack, the first thing that came to my mind was how we use frozen bananas to make "ice cream." This Frozen Banana Ice Cream with Blueberries is easy to make and my kids adore it. It is better for them than traditional ice cream, plus it's a nice way to get some fruit into their diets.
