So my family had just gotten done eating some Mississippi Pot Roastand the first thing my husband says to me is "So, what's for dessert?" Um, what? Really? This gorgeous, tender, amazingly good pot roast hasn't even been in your belly 10 minutes and you're already asking about dessert? And of course, my son jumps on board and is waiting for my answer too. Well, honestly, I hadn't planned for dessert. I knew I had some strawberries in the fridge and thought about just putting those out with a bit of sugar. So, as we're all cleaning up from dinner, I saw that my waffle maker was still on the counter. I had just cleaned it up and hadn't put it away yet from making the Cornbread Waffles. I thought, 'Shoot, those were good and they were from a packet mix, why not something sweet?' So I busted out the Martha White Strawberry Cheesecake Muffin Mix that I had sitting in my pantry and decided to give it a shot. Literally, 4 minutes later, we had dessert. It's like the funnest version of strawberry shortcake ever!
And the possibilities are almost endless and fun to think about. Blueberry waffles, Chocolate chip waffles, Apple Cinnamon waffles and on and on. These are all muffin mixes that Martha White makes. All you do is mix up the packet according to the package directions, which in this case is 1/2 cup milk per package, and cook them up. It's even faster than making muffins.
I love pantry cooking like this. This is why it pays off to have a few of these packets in your pantry. Make waffles, make muffins, have fun easily and quickly. And don't forget those packets of Martha White Cornbread Mix. Those have saved me so many times when I wanted some type of bread with dinner but didn't have a lot of time.
A couple of years ago I shared 25 of my Favorite Crock Pot Recipes. Can you believe that post has been viewed over a million times? It just goes to show that y'all love your slow cookers as much as I do. And one of the most common requests I still receive are for crock pot/slow cooker meals. So I asked some of my food blogging friends for their most popular and most pinned recipes from their blogs.
So this post is 45 of the most loved crock pot recipes that are on the internet right now. This is going to be one of those posts that you'll want to pin so that you always have all of these recipes at your fingertips. In fact, I'm planning next week's menu after just looking at all of these!
