Slow Cooker Italian Stuffed Pepper Soup

Slow Cooker Italian Stuffed Pepper Soup

I’ll be honest, I have made stuffed bell peppers in the past and didn’t really enjoy eating them. My husband loves them, but I just don’t enjoy eating the whole bell pepper like that. Is that weird? Plus, it was way more time consuming than this Slow Cooker Italian Stuffed Pepper Soup is. […]

Crockpot Red Beans and Rice

Crockpot Red Beans and Rice

This recipe is one of my favorite comfort food meals in the whole world. Years ago, back before I learned how to cook real food, my mom would occasionally serve red beans with smoked sausage at our family get-togethers. When she offered me leftovers, I gladly took her up on the offer. A home cooked meal instead of a frozen Lean Cuisine for lunch was a real treat back then. Ha! Seriously, I hate to think about how many of those I ate back in the day. […]

Don’t worry, I haven’t decided to go all vegetarian or vegan on you. No way! Just thought I’d throw in a meatless main dish occasionally here on the blog. […]

Slow Cooker Andouille and Bean Chili

Hey guys! If you’re a regular reader, you may have noticed a bit of an updated look to my blog. If you’re new here, hello! I decided it was time for a little freshening up. I happened to come across a Bible at Half Price books this past Sunday, and I just fell in love with the color. It was about the pale turquoise color (with chocolate brown) that you see in my header and menu bar. After thinking about it for a couple of days, I decided that’s the color I wanted to use here on The Texas Peach. […]
