Crock Pot Chicken Enchilada Bowls

I was craving enchiladas, but had crazy, busy days so I created this recipe.  It smelled so good while it was cooking and was a huge hit with the family!! Crock Pot Chicken Enchilada Bowls 4-5 chicken breasts  (I used 12 chicken tenders) 1 packet taco seasoning 1 can enchilada sauce 1/2 cup water 3-4 green onions (or 1-2 Tablespoons minced onion) 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese cilantro *Optional cooked rice sour cream additional shredded cheese Place chicken in the crock pot, pour the enchilada sauce, the taco seasoning, onions, water and 1 cups cheese on top. Then if desired add some chopped cilantro on top of that. Cook on low for about 4 hours, stirring every once in awhile. When chicken is cooked through, remove and cut in to pieces or shred it.  Return it to the pot.  Cook your rice. Serve chicken mixture over rice.  Garnish with cheese and sour cream. *Next time I am going to add to the garnishing;  tomatoes and avocado I also think a can of black beans woul

Does this Insecurity Make me look FAT? and a AWESOME Giveaway!!

  I remember in Jr High thinking, Why am I here?  I am nobody, but a nerdy, curly haired, big glasses freak.  Thinking what is my purpose?  Letting my insecurities and self doubt totally get the best of me.  Yes, I have come along way since then, but I still let those insecurities get the best of me all the time.   The title of this book says it so well exactly how we feel when those times creep in. I feel very fortunate to have gotten my hands on this book, but only as a loaner.  It is a new release by a brand new author Michelle Wilson   with an official release date of  December 30th . Although you can order it now here as an early release.  It says it is a preorder, but they are shipping them out now.   Isn't the cover so adorable!!   The first sentence had me hooked.. "Every day women are bombarded with temptations, demands and decisions on the outside and troubled by unrealistic expectations, doubt and fear on the inside" How often do you find yourself

Zuppa Toscana Soup

I love Olive Garden and especially this soup.  I was shocked at how easy it was to make and oh so delicious!!  The kids didn't even notice the kale which I thought added great flavor to the soup.   It was a hit and definitely curved the craving!! Zuppa Toscana Adapted  just a bit from Mom on Time Out 1 lb Italian Sausage (spicy if you prefer more heat) 5-7 slices of bacon 5 medium russet potatoes 2 cups kale, chopped 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream 8 cups chicken broth 1/2 large onion 2-3 cloves of garlic, minced Salt and pepper Brown the sausage and break into small pieces.  Drain and set aside.  Cook your bacon and crumble into pieces.  Place on a paper towel to drain.   Slice the potatoes about 1/4 inch thick.  Just try to get them as close to the same size so they cook evenly.  I then cut the slices in half or fourths to make the bite sized pieces.  Put the potatoes, onions, garlic and chicken broth into a large pot.  Cook on medium heat until the potatoes are
