What is your favorite Halloween Candy?

York Peppermint Patties for sure!

 I love them any time of year...
but especially the pumpkin and bat versions at Halloween!

And you can use them in many ways too...

Make a little spider...

or top off a cupcake...

Create a monster.... 
(visit here for instructions)
or add them to brownies....

Or do what I do and just eat them from the freezer!

What a Crock!

Today was a comfort food kind of day.
And what better way to cook comfort food then in my crock pot!

There's just nothing quite better than walking in the door
to the  wonderful aroma of a crock pot meal!

And it's so easy....almost no preparation at all!

I put a pork loin roast into the pot, added a half dozen chunky
sliced potatoes, a chopped onion, a bag of fresh mushrooms,
and a can of cream of celery soup.

It magically becomes a delicious, good-for-the soul, 
cottage cozy meal.

 Add a salad or a scoop of veggies and you are good to go!

Since 1970, the Crock Pot has been making meal preparation so much easier for many of us, but the funny thing is that it was actually a 'what if' byproduct of an earlier invention, the "beanery", intended for use in the cooking of beans. 

Soon enough it became clear that the beanery appliance had another potential use: it could be used to cook various types of meat, and what's more, it could do so better than it did with beans. Soon after the modern Crock Pot slow cooker was born!

The first Rival Crock Pot slow cooker was released to the domestic market in 1971.
It came with a basic crock interior, a glass lid, and a bright red exterior.

What do you like to toss into your crock pot?

Stay Cozy,
