With the delicious slow cooker jerk chicken I made sweet and savory quesadillas filled with jerk chicken and melted cheddar cheese, topped with tangy mango salsa. The taste combination was out of this world amazing. This is a winner for sure, that I will definitely be making again... and soon!

What a fantastic meal! I've said it before, I love, love, love my Slow Cooker. My kitchen smelled wonderful all day, and I couldn't wait for dinner time. The smell was even sweet, yet spicy; cinnamon and nutmeg combined with molasses, and a hint of habanero added to the mix. Make this once, and I guarantee you'll be making it time and time again!

When it comes to Italian food, lasagna definitely tops my list. What's not to love? Gooey cheese sandwiched between layers of pasta noodles, all smothered in delicious sauce. I made this recipe a tad healthier by using ground turkey instead of ground beef. Read on for how to recreate this classic meal, homemade sauce and all!

I channeled my inner swedish chef, and made swedish meatballs. I must say, my inner swedish chef is pretty darn good. They were melt in your mouth, delicious. I made meatball subs slathered with a brown gravy that complimented the meatballs perfectly. Speaking of complimenting, bring these to your next get together and you're sure to get rave reviews!

How many times have you picked up French bread from the store because you needed it as a side for your favorite Italian dish? If you're like me, it's too many times to count. I learned after years and years of doing this that I could make my own French bread at home without the use of a bread machine. What's better is that this bread is unbelievably delicious and even more so dipped into my homemade basil butter.

I love my slow cooker. I mean, who wouldn't? Have your meal all prepared, throw it all in the slow cooker, turn it on, and walk away. This slow cooker recipe is a wonderful, hearty meal with not much in the way of preparation; 30 minutes at the most. The end result will warm you from the inside out!

Wow, just wow. I've tried my hand at many different kinds of pizza, including New York style pizza. Well, I figured, just to be fair, it's about time that I try my hand at the classic Chicago style deep dish pizza. I must say, I was successful! With a flaky, buttery, melt in your mouth crust, and topped with mozzarella, pepperoni, and sauce (in that order) it was simply incredible!

Sometimes, I like to step out of the box and create a new recipe that is unique and that I don't think anybody has done, at least not that I know of. Yes, I had to venture into unknown culinary territory.... I didn't know where I was headed but I like where I ended up. I ended up at a very fine gourmet appetizer of a meal that utilizes one of my favorite meals, Eggplant Parmesan. Although, it does make me want to call it Eggplant Parmesan Sushi for it's obvious resemblance to the real kind of sushi and because I love sushi but I digress.
No it's not sushi but what it is though is something extraordinary and delicious in every sense of the word. What else could that be than tender chicken pieces cooked to perfection, then combined with fresh mozzarella and then wrapped up in panko breaded eggplant and fried.
