This is an easy “throw it in the crockpot frozen” meal that I make when I need something i can throw together fast in the morning for dinner that night. I like to use my home-canned tomatoes, but you can use store-bought – just use a 15oz can of crushed or petite diced tomatoes in […]
I love recipes. I have a cookbook addiction and I probably get 6-7 cooking magazines every month. I love food, and I love great recipes.
