Crockpot Pulled pork with a Blueberry Teriyaki Sauce

SWEET AND SAVOURY ON YOUR PLATE   I have felt under the weather lately and needed to make supper tonight so I am making a simple crock-pot pulled pork recipe but changing it up by adding blueberries and teriyaki. I really do just want to stay in bed and sip on my lemon and honey hot drink but supper needs to be organized. This is one of those recipes that you can set and forget it. This is also one of those budget-friendly recipes that you can make ahead of time and even freeze for another day. You all know me well enough now that I have a few recipes up my sleeve that are fast such as 15 minute meals or a one-pot wonder. Today I’ve taken out the crock-pot which I just love as you can make just about anything in it from bread to jam, soups and stews to my all-time favourite pulled pork.     Pulled Pork   Today I am going to make for you today my version of crock-pot pulled pork that’s made with teriyaki sauce, Worcester sauce (also known as Worcestershire) and blueberries as well my homemade tomato sauce to top it all […]

Crock-pot Turkey Meatballs In A Honey BBQ Sauce

Smell The Magic Of A Crock-Pot Meal We love meatballs and we enjoy making meatballs in pasta sauce but what we love even more is crock-pot turkey meatballs. Since my wife is on a low-gi diet she has tried to stick with turkey mince and turkey sausages and limiting the amount of rice, potatoes and pasta she eats. We actually find the ground turkey or turkey sausages cheaper to buy as well or often find it reduced in price. I’d easily call this a frugal meal and one that is an excellent change from eating beef during the week. To finish off the turkey meatballs we cooked them in a homemade honey BBQ sauce that I used to make my pulled pork crock-pot recipe. Creating a sauce for turkey meatballs really will make a difference in the outcome of this recipe. If you are pressed for time buying a pre-made BBQ sauce will work just fine. I’m not sure if this is what you would call healthy turkey meatballs but everything we have here is delicious ingredients right from the pantry. One thing that we did notice about using the ground turkey was that it lacked the flavour or the […]

Mr.CBB’s Cheesy Crock-Pot Lasagna

Crock-pot Lasagna, no way, you can’t make lasagna in a crock-pot. I’ve made beef stew, beef chili, chicken, meatballs and sauce and even Easter Dinner in the crockpot but never the mother-load of all baked meals, a lasagna. Crock-pot Crock-pot, come out come out wherever you are. I swear it took off when it overheard me saying I was going to make a lasagna in it. Even the crock-pot had some reservations about this turning out anything like the traditional oven baked Italian lasagna recipe that most people sink their mouths into. That’s what I used to think until I actually gave this a try. I used my typical oven baked lasagna recipe to create this except I didn’t have ricotta on hand so I substituted for cottage cheese to make this dish. So, sit back and enjoy the layers in this one-pot lasagna recipe!! How To Boil Lasagna Noodles No need to worry about boiling lasagna noodles with this recipe although if you opt to boil them it’s not rocket science. I would get a huge pot and fill it with water until boiling and drop in a few lasagna noodles at a time and cook until al dente (5-7 minutes), […]

Mr.CBB’s Crock-Pot Beef Stew

If you have a crock-pot (also known as a slow cooker) and ask yourself what to cook in a crock pot besides beef stew, casseroles and soups you are not alone. There are many other easy recipe creations that you might never have thought of to cook in a crock-pot which even had me amazed. I remember the first time a fan told me that she makes a cake in the crock-pot and I thought she was joking, but she was serious. Essentially, it’s because we don’t associate a crock-pot with sweet treats only savoury meals but if we use our imagination coupled with trial and error we never know what magic we can create in the CBB kitchen. I am always on the hunt for new ideas to create slow cooking recipes to add to our recipe book so the wife and I can enjoy a meal without all the hassle and messy clean-up. If you have never ventured into the world of stew and you want to learn how to cook stew, today is your lucky day. Crock-pot cooking, especially for men who don’t fancy cooking, this is one of the simplest ways to create easy recipes right in […]

Mr.CBB’s Crock-Pot Pulled Pork With Homemade BBQ Sauce

Coming up with an easy pulled pork recipe for the crock-pot was simpler than I thought. Crock-pot cooking (also known as a slow cooker) is the next best thing to having a chef in the house who cooks for you while you are not around. Easy crock-pot recipes are showing up on the web and in cook books all over the world and for good reason. It’s the set it and forget it aspect of the crock-pot that is alluring to men and women who want to cook a hearty home cooked meal but don’t have the time to be in the kitchen for hours on end. My good Blogger friend Aunt B posted this easy recipe for Walnut and White Cheddar Biscuits  that I thought would be perfect for my pulled pork sandwich. I had tried it first with egg and ham in the middle and that is when I thought I might as well try it with pulled pork. As you can see from the picture the biscuit is very flaky and has lots of good flavour. It was better than awesome as the nuts added texture and the cheese added the right amount of bite to the shredded pork. […]

Mr.CBB’s Slammin Crockpot Chili $6.50

Mr.CBB’s Slammin Chili! Last week I promised I would get you my budget friendly slammin chili recipe and here it is. I hope I had you all drooling over my Spicy Cheesy Bacon Corn Bread which I have accompanying this dish as it’s worth the extra time to make them.  For some a thick slice of fresh hot slice of home-made bread slathered in butter will do the trick but I wanted to try something new. If you like to try something different.. give it a shot, it’s very tasty. Mr. CBB’s Slammin Chili can be as mild as you like it or as Spicy as you like it. We prefer somewhere in the middle to protect us from the morning after effect in the loo as we don’t have stomachs of steel in the CBB home. There are many types of chili peppers depending on what region of the world you are in. They also differ in heat and sweetness but for the most part add tonnes of flavour to any dish. One of my favourite peppers is the pepperoncini Chili pepper.. particularly the one’s that are marinated or pickled. I can eat those one after another with some fresh bread.. you know the one’s […]

Mr.CBB’s Easter Dinner for 8 in the Crock Pot! Cost $ 1.25 plate

There’s more to Easter than chocolate eggs and bunny rabbits as it’s a time that some families gather to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It’s also a time where traditional feasts are served and enjoyed by many all across the land. In Canada Good Friday is a Statutory Holiday and Easter Monday you may find some businesses still remain closed. Easter Dinner A Canadian Budget Binder fan Shelley Chenier posted a crock pot recipe last week on Facebook that had me thinking about Easter food ideas. I wanted us to have a traditional Easter menu but without all the fuss. So many of us are busy in the kitchen during special occasions and the guests are left to chat amongst themselves. We would rather not be the absent couple during a family dinner so we decided to change that this Easter. We wanted to create a frugal Easter meal that would allow us to be with our guests and actually celebrate. Since the Easter holiday is around the corner this recipe caught my eye because it has all the makings of a one pot meal. If you want to keep it simple this Easter try this recipe out and spend more time with your […]
