SLOW COOKER MEXICAN CHICKEN STEW

This healthy slow cooker Mexican chicken stew couldn’t be simpler to prepare, and is packed with delicious Mexican flavors!

Slow Cooker Mexican Chicken Stew

I find it pretty strange which recipes from my blog become popular and which ones do not.  Usually, it’s the ones I’m the most excited about that are the real flops…I mean, apparently you guys aren’t that into Spicy Mango Margaritas, and apparently Moroccan Chickpea Sliders with Harissa Mayo and Mint are just not your thing.  It’s OK.  We can still be friends!

Well one recipe that completely surprised me by taking off on Pinterest was my Slow Cooker Tuscan Chicken Stew.  So I guess you guys really want slow cooker stews?  I can run with that!

So here you go!  I made you another slow cooker chicken stew…this time with Mexican flavors!

Pear Gouda and Hazelnut Spinach Salad

On Tuesday I promised you a salad, and here you go!

Normally I would save a salad for a Monday/Tuesday sort of post, however due to life, you’re getting a Friday salad!  A Friday salad has to be pretty darn special, because let’s face it: Friday is an indulgent dessert kind of day.  This salad has to be really special…dazzling, sparkly life of the party kind of special.

Guess what?  That’s what you’re looking at.

ROLO-STUFFED PRETZEL TOFFEE COOKIES

 The ultimate sweet and salty cookies: stuffed with Rolos, toffee and pretzel pieces.

Rolo-Stuffed Pretzel Toffee Cookies, the ultimate salty/sweet cookie! #cookie #candy

If Fridays call for cocktails, then Tuesdays call for cookies, right?  Actually, if your name is Denise, then cookie day is actually Mon-Sun.  Aka: every day ;)

And yes, this makes two dessert recipes in a row!  I actually had a salad recipe for today but my photos were baaaaad.  So I have to redo my photos, and instead you get more sweets.  Oh well, that’s the way the cookie crumbles. <– see what I did there?

OK, OK.  Bad puns aside.  These cookies are awesome and you should make them.  How’s that for a tagline?

CRANBERRY SAUCE MINI CHEESECAKES

Cranberry sauce is swirled into mini cheesecakes and drizzled on top.  The most delicious way to enjoy Thanksgiving leftovers!

So you may have witnessed my cranberry sauce rant in my Raspberry Balsamic Cranberry Sauce post.  If not, here’s the summary:  I am a total, crazy, cranberry sauce nut.

Well this year, I went a bit overboard…I made a double batch of cranberry sauce, and ended up with probably a liter of sauce for 8 people…and there were leftovers…oh so many leftovers!

And looking at the leftover cranberry sauce, and a few blocks of cream cheese that just happened to be hanging out in my fridge, this recipe was spontaneously born.
