Crock Pot Chicken Wings

Let's talk chicken wings. Do you like 'em? Do you make them often? Lots of folks don't make wings that often because, let's face it, between the breading and the frying, it can be a boatload of work for 5 minutes of eating. Plus, when you are having a party, the last thing you want to be doing is fussing around in the kitchen while you're guests are having all the fun. This is where your slow cooker can help you out. 
Not only can you have crazy tender and delicious chicken wings, but you can actually enjoy them without all the frying oil and fuss. These wings are perfect for the whole family. They aren't spicy so kids (and those of us with acid reflux) can dig in easily. But they can totally be kicked up a notch by adding some hot sauce for your guests who like it hawt! My guys absolutely fell in love with this twist on BBQ Chicken Wings. And those boys are picky so we know we have a winner when they give it a thumbs up.

Cherry Cheesecake Dip


I love dips. Well, actually, I love finger foods and potlucks. I'm kind of a grazer. I like to eat a little bit of everything. Pile my plate high with a bunch of samplings of food and I'm a happy gal. Super Bowl parties are the perfect excuse. Now, normally there are all kinds of savory dips. I love me some Jalapeño Popper Dip and French Onion Dip but it's kinda nice to bring something sweet to the table. And this one couldn't be easier to make. Or to eat. And the bonus? This dip can be made ahead of time and you just let it chill in the fridge until you're ready to dig in.
I'm using a cherry pie filling here but really you could use any kind you love. Strawberry and blueberry would both work well. It is such a light and fluffy dip. It's not overly sweet. You could even use this same recipe as a no-bake pie if you like. You are gonna love this dip and your friends and family are gonna love eating it!

Crock Pot French Onion Dip

Are you ready for some football? If not, are you ready for some Super Bowl party food? I'm in that second category there. Oh, and those commercials. It's the one time of year that I don't get frustrated with having to sit through a ton of commercials! And this year we have all the "Deflate-Gate" controversy so even I have to admit that I've probably paid a little more attention than I should. So, who are you routing for? And better yet, what are ya making to eat for your Super Bowl parties?
Speaking of "The Big Game", did you know that technically you aren't supposed to use the words "Super Bowl" on anything because it's trademarked? You can call it "The Big Game" but you can't use the words "Super Bowl" on any advertising or products or anywhere for that matter without specific permission from the NFL. So technically, I shouldn't call it a Super Bowl party, but rather, The Big Game party. But y'all know what I mean and I know what I mean and I'm pretty sure the NFL would be happy that I'm encouraging folks to watch The Big Game and eat. Oh, and watch those commercials. Have you seen any of the leaked ones yet? The Budweiser ones are tearjerkers every time. Wait, am I allowed to use the word "Budweiser" or do I have to call it the "The Big Name Beer"?
Anyhoo, this dip. THIS. DIP. Only 3 ingredients!!! And it is crazy good! Plus, you just whip it up in your crock pot and boom - you're done. It's warm and creamy and packs a whole lotta flavor. I love French Onion Dip but serving it warm like this was really, really good. Try it, I know you'll love it!
