Grain Free Meatballs with Mushroom Sauce

Grain Free Meatballs with Mushroom Sauce

Meatballs are a super simple meal - especially when you have some stashed in the freezer. Once a month I try to prep a six-pound batch of meatloaf and meatballs and it comes in handy for quick and simple meals.

The hardest part is deciding what to do with them!

I love to whip up a simple sauce, add a side dish or two, and dinner is ready in 30 minutes or less. With a few batches of grain-free meatballs in the freezer, I know I can get a family dinner on the table quickly. Spending an hour or so on a Sunday afternoon means quick family dinners all month long.

Easy Crockpot Taco Soup

Easy Crockpot Taco Soup

I've adapted this easy crockpot taco soup recipe from many that I've seen around - that usually include lots of prepackaged spice mixes and canned items. I loved the idea of the soup but all I could think about was the huge amount of salt - between the two spice mixes and all the canned items. So I thought about how I could create a healthier version of this simple recipe. It was actually a pretty easy thing to do!

How to Cook Taco Meat in the Crock Pot

Tacos are a family favorite around here - I make them almost every week. I started to make larger batches of our homemade taco seasoning mix to shave a few minutes off my prep time and then I realized I could go a step further and just cook up a huge batch of taco meat and freeze it in meal-sized portions. And, to save even more time, I figured that I could cook taco meat in the crock pot!
