Slow Cooker Lemony Raspberry Lava Cake

Sometimes my cravings stray a little north of the usual chocolate on top of chocolate, with a side of something chocolatey.

Enter Mr. (or Mrs.) Lemon….

Before I go any further, it should be pointed out that this recipe requires a mini story.

Do you mind?

o.k. Thanks.

Back in the day, my mother in law owned a bakery and my favorite donut to sneak out of the display case was lemon filled and lightly sprinkled with powdered sugar.  My second favorite filled donut was raspberry, topped with the perfect dab of homemade vanilla icing.

So I guess my sweet tooth got a tad nostalgic the other day.

Which caused a slow cooker inspired concoction.

I found a box of lemon cake mix and lemon pudding in my pantry and the rest is history.

In my belly.

Slow Cooker Lemony Raspberry Lava Cake

My Gooseberry Patch Slow Cooker Apple Pie

It has always been a goal of mine to have one of my recipes selected to be featured in a Gooseberry Patch Cookbook.
I’ve been a fan of Gooseberry Cookbooks for a very long time.  I think the biggest reason I like them so much is that the recipes in their cookbooks are from regular people who want to share their tried and true family favorites with other people, like you and me.  
Well, last fall it happened.
My recipe for Slow Cooker Apple Pie was chosen!
I had this recipe posted on my blog for quite some time.

Butter Toffee “Crack” Cookies {Slow Cooker}

You are probably wondering by now why the word “crack” is used to describe these yummy little delights…………………

Slow Cooker Creamy Pumpkin Hot Cocoa

This recipe is a real keeper.

{Like my Manly Man}
Tee Hee

Seriously though….If you like pumpkin spice-y flavored goodies, then you’ll love this hot cocoa.
One sip & you’ll be saying :
 JEEZ LOUISE, This is good!
 My kids even really like it….And they don’t lie when it comes to trying new kinds of food.
 Basically, if they don’t like it- they DON’T eat it.
Plain & Simple.
 They cut right to the chase.  No messing around trying that whole “spare Mom’s feelings” bit.
 Brutally honest, I tell ya.
That reminds me of a comment my daughter blurted out the other day when I was trying on my new Eddie Bauer “Mom Jeans”.  She took one look at them on me and said ” Mom. Those jeans make your junk look like the back end of an SUV.”


No fancy photo shoot here.  Took this pic seconds before my kids snatched it up from the kitchen table.

Slow Cooker {Country Harvest} Applesauce

I had a bag of apples and notion for somethin’ sweet the other day.
OH, And a thousand other things I should be doing besides making applesauce……
Oh well. 
After hunting down my recipe for Slow Cooker Applesauce;  It only took me forever and a day to find, seriously…..
 (So glad it’s on my blog now,  sooo much easier to locate. Tee hee)
I then recruited my somewhat willing daughter, a handy apple slicer, and my trusty slow cooker…..

So yummy.  It tastes like apple pie!
The kids & my manly man gobbled it down so fast that it was gone before I could get more than a spoonful to taste.  I am one sad momma.  I’ll have to make a double batch next time.
