by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on March 11, 2013

We love shredded chicken…I will often make large batches of it and freeze in meal size portions.

For this chicken, I used what I had on hand […]

Alea’s Slow Cooker Honey Glazed Ham

by Alea on January 15, 2013

I love being able to serve Sunday dinner shortly after arriving home from church. But I don’t like leaving the oven on while we are gone. I do feel comfortable leaving the slow cooker on, so I occasionally use it to make Honey Glazed Ham. I can cook the ham for one hour on high, […]
