15 Bean Slow Cooker Soup

The fall weather is here! The windows open, watching movies, slow cooker going, and just relaxing while I work. The only other condition I would change is a bit of rain. My son even said to me “I am going for a walk and enjoy this beautiful day.” He went for a walk in the woods. He is my nature child. He is 19 and about as humble as anyone could be. Last night, I finally got him to try my 15 Bean Slow Cooker Soup. I told him it’s a must over cornbread. He actually liked my beans! He is not a bean eater.

About as close to beans as he gets is a bean burrito on very rare occasion. It was an honor to make his mouth tingle with something new. He is just so mellow though. I wish I could have his inner peace. Though, on days like this when it’s pretty outside and you can write by cool air and a good movie like Pompeii on the big screen it gives me a sense of inner peace.

The aroma of the soup slow cooking only allows me to be more in tune with that foodie side of me. I am planning plenty of meals at the moment. I don’t know which to start with first. I have the mother load of sugar pumpkins. They are decorating my counter tops at the moment. It looks as if fall rained down in my kitchen. It’s plastered with pumpkins, spooky cupcakes, and candy galore.

This 15 Bean Slow Cooker Soup allows me to put this all in the slow cooker extremely fast. Then I get to move on to other goodies without slaving over dinner. That’s the idea behind the slow cooker but flavor is a big detail too. Most slow cooker meals I try don’t have that OMG I want to eat tons of this flavor. I think that is why I want to share a few of my slow cooker recipes with you. Less ingredients and packed with massive flavor. That’s what makes this dish not only delicious but completely budget friendly.

Tex Mex Pasta Skillet

Did I ever mention how much I love my Lodge skillet? It’s the easiest way for me to fry up meat or bake cornbread. I just love making quick skillet dinners in it too. The meat cooks evenly and fast. In this Texas humidity recipes can get very unruly fairly fast. The skillet heat equally and allows for a good even cooking even when you are dealing with horrible humidity. This is a simple skillet dinner called Tex Mex Pasta Skillet that I make on weeknight when I just don’t have the time to stand in the kitchen for a long period of time.

We all have those days. Whether it is running the kids, or in my case teenagers, to school and back. High tailing the other ones to work. Or even the plenty of football games and competitions. In fact, we tend to eat out often during this season and we all have said how much we have missed those home cooked meals. In two nights, we put this little Tex Mex Pasta Skillet and a 15 bean soup that is headed to the blog also.

It takes minimal ingredients so it’s easy for your teenager to be able to make on their own. It’s also completely budget friendly. It’s loaded with flavor but doesn’t come from using your entire spice cabinet to get there. You can control the level of heat too by which style of Rotel you buy. I usually get the medium heat and then add some fresh cracked pepper. I like spicy foods though! I also top my with a bunch of yummy cheese. Some times sharp cheddar cheese or sometimes a good colby jack cheese. Below is a quick video showing how I put this together so quick and easy. The skillet cuts my meat cooking time down by at least 10 minutes.

Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup

With school back in session I know many of you are looking for easy recipes to make between work and after school activities. I know I am! Pulling out my arsenal of recipes especially those recipes for the slower cooker. With the daughter in color guard and my work load getting heavier slow cooker or crockpot, depending on what you call it, dinners help make for a bit more time in the evenings. This slow cooker chicken noodle soup is quite simple to put together and full of flavor. 

Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup - Mooshu Jenne #chicken #soup

Infused with white wine and rosemary this soup doesn’t taste like your normal chicken noodle soup. The aroma is perfectly intoxicating. It’s also budget friendly which is great after all that back to school shopping and school supplies. We all know every dime and dollar counts at that time of year. 

SlowCookerChickenNoodleSoupSmall1

I plop it all into a slow cooker/ crock pot with plenty of garlic and ginger. This slow cooker chicken noodle soup makes the entire house smell amazing! As you can see I just add the carrots in halves and don’t chop them up. The reason is that they don’t get nearly as mushy when you slow cook them whole. All you have to do is scoop them back out and mash them with a fork then drop them back in. I do the same thing with the celery too! Also, the noodles are made on the side. I’m just not a fan of crock pot noodles. They seems to have an odd texture depending on how each slow cooker cooks. 

SlowCookerChickenNoodleSoupWriting

I just cook them on the side quickly in a pasta pot. Strain them and add them to each bowl. It’s great because if you have someone eating with you that is gluten free you can leave out the noodles in their bowl. I hope this soup will help you get back into the daily routine.

Easy Peasy Shepherd’s Pie

Today is my daughter’s first performance. It’s pretty exciting for her and myself. I cannot wait to see her out there on the field. It’s football season here which is the hype of Texas. I don’t buy into it much. I do now because she is a part of it. Do you have a teen in sports or color guard?

Easy Peasy Shepherd's Pie - Mooshu Jenne

If you do then you know what I mean when I say dinner can be a hassle. Trying to cook in between school, practices, and events is virtually impossible at times. That’s why I love this recipe for Easy Peasy Shepherd’s Pie. It’s not a slower cooker meal which most favor at this time of year but the prep is simple and it can be refrigerated for baking at a later time. However, I like to cook it in one whack.

Easy Peasy Shepherd's Pie - Mooshu Jenne

Most of the time I will let the other half boil the potatoes while I run to get her from practice. Then I come back and make the meat and toss it all together. This dish comes together super easy! Plus, it will feed a mountain of people. It usually feeds us while leaving me some for lunch the next day. 

Easy Peasy Shepherd's Pie - Mooshu Jenne

 This is not a traditional recipe just a break off of the real deal. It cuts time down but it is still rich in flavor. Easy to serve up running in the door late night or running out on a early night dinner. I hope you all enjoy this simple dish at the end of the back to school week. At least it’s a three day weekend! Happy Labor Day! Now off I go to see her and leave you with a recipe.

The Hunger Heroes is all about action. It’s about turning families into superheroes, and tapping into the incredible power of giving. This is our story of our incredible power or giving. Every year we do several things to help out children in our local community. Twice a year, my kids go through their clothing and we find a family that is in need. We pass along the clothing. It’s easy to take to a donation drop or to a thrift store but we like to see if those in need, need it first. We like to see first hand that people are receiving what they need. It helps us to know their future needs.

menyashopping

A few times a year I go through my pantry. I like to stock up on non perishables. You never know when a zombie apocalypse will happen(according to my daughter). For me it’s a natural disaster. My pantry always ends up overloaded. Instead of throwing out perfectly good food, I first offer it to friends with children that don’t earn much, and after them I try to donate it to a local food bank. Food is the number 1 item no one should every go without; especially a child. You can help fight hunger with #HungerHeroes 

menyatyson

Something we started last year was wheb weather turns cold and the holidays are upon us we try to gather bread, meats, and other items to make lunch snacks and we pass them out on the streets where we see the homeless. Left over candy canes are a great for passing out too! Stores toss them away and it’s sad because someone could eat it. Don’t throw out food as long as it is safe for eating pass it along to someone in need.

When I do have a chance to help shop for a family in need it is nice to shop at Sam’s Club. They have larger packs of food and it helps to feed over a longer period of time. Sam’s club had a demo for Tyson nuggets so you can taste test them before buying. The next demo dates of August 23 and 24 at all Sam’s Clubs. Go check them out!

No Fry Firecracker Chicken

One of my sons’ friends is totally gluten free. In our house, that is something new because we eat whatever we please. When I know he is coming over I try to plan for it. He isn’t gluten free by choice; he is because of the severe headaches it causes him. This is a recent recipe we made when he visited. No Fry Firecracker Chicken comes with a simple sauce made from ingredients you should already have on hand in your fridge door.

No Fry Firecracker Chicken - Mooshu Jenne #Nofry #chickendinner

I paired it with rice and spring onions for a summer feel. It’s almost like take out for them. They were having a TV series marathon of Supernatural. One show we all enjoy around here. I am the only one about two episodes behind on season 9. Season 10 will be the end coming this Fall. Oh so sad!

No Fry Firecracker Chicken - Mooshu Jenne #Nofry #chickendinner

This meal can easily be made in half the time without the frying so you don’t have to break from the TV series marathon for long. I like to make this in my stir fry pot. It’s on the spicy side with the ability to control the heat in this dish. Just add more hot sauce or less to when making this dish. 

No Fry Firecracker Chicken - Mooshu Jenne #Nofry #chickendinner

The only thing I need now is some take out boxes for our next picnic. This is good hot and cold. Just have to eat it the same day though!  Luckily, this was a hit with all of the boys and the daughter. It’s similar to my bourbon chicken which I cook without frying also even though my recipe here shows it fried. I just skip the frying step.  That reminds me I need to do some red beans and rice this week. Sounds so darn good! I always crave Cajun in the summer. What do you crave?

Sour Straw Popsicles

If there is one thing in our home that everyone will devour it has to be sour straws. It’s like this radar detector that goes off and they all come to the vicinity that I have them in.  I can buy a bucket of them but with in a week they are absolutely gone. Oh and if I got at least one I am lucky. 

Sour Straw Popsicles

Two evenings ago my other half, V, picked some sour straws up for this recipe Sour Straw Popsicles. I honest thought there is no way they are going to last the night. Funny enough I was the one that devoured the most of them and yes some were actually left over. We managed to hide them for the teens and eat some ourselves while watching The Haunting.  The other half and I like spooky shows. I am not quite sure if it is because he is interested in them or likes to make fun of the people. His answer is when it’s really scary just drink beer and ignore it. Psst… He’s Czech. Not all of us think drinking beer will get rid of the ghosts. 

SourStrawPopsiclesDarkSmall2

I managed to slip the sour straws away from him and put them aside for these popsicles. A few months ago I picked up a Zoku classic popsicle mold. After trying a ton of other molds I love how easy they come out of the Zoku molds. I hear there is some others out there that work just as well and have cute designs. If you know of some put it in the comments below because I would love to check them out.

SourStrawPopsiclesDarkSmall1

Moving on to the popsicles I finally had the chance to use the mold and make some popsicles. These sour straw popsicles are so sour that it will make your entire face pucker and that’s a good thing!

SourStrawPopsiclesDarkSmall4

Gosh! Look at it just run down her hand. Sticky! These were so much fun but I would use the sour straws over the sour straw bites next time.  The sour bites became a bit mushy but super hyped up the flavor of the popsicles.

They are super sour and melt fast!

Bacon and Bourbon Chicken Kebabs

Grilling season is here! I am so excited because I have been thinking up some new recipes and trying out as many on the grill by the pool as often as I can. These bacon and bourbon chicken kebabs were delicious made from bits of bacon, bbq sauce and spices that merry well together. Grilling season is really fun because I feel like it brings people together. It allows for summer fun but also potlucks were everyone grills something different and brings a plethora of side dishes. Its just a foodie experience that I totally enjoy. 
baconandbourbonchickenkebabs6

There is nothing more enticing then grilling with bacon and allowing the flames lick the sauce. It puts a wondrous crunch on the chicken. Probably one of the reason I love to grill so much.  Food on the grill should always have a good sauce on it too. Are you a dry rub or sauce fan?

Bacon and Bourbon Chicken Kebabs

I have these really great metal skewer I use for kebabs. They are reusable which I have to say I favor over buying the wood skewers. Next time I make the bacon and bourbon chicken kebabs I plan to add red onion to them. I just love the sweetness of the red onion once it’s been grilled. Do you have a favorite meat or veggie to skewer and grill?

Bacon and Bourbon Chicken Kebabs

This weekend coming my son turns 17 and we are planning to make some beef carnitas. I hope I can talk the other half into grilling up the tortillas so they have that nice warmth to them. I really need to purchase an outdoor plate set. I’ve seen one I like and cannot wait to sneak it in behind him. He says I already have too much kitchen items. As a food blogger you can never ever have enough ;) He just laughs; then tells me no.

Hot wings have to be one of my most favorite foods of all time. Sometimes it’s a real pain to make them when you have a summer cookout. Here in Texas we are already starting to feel it warm up enough outside that you can feel the humidity. Cooking inside almost becomes just not an option. For summer cookouts I will be definitely making Tyson Grillin Wings along with Salt and Pepper Asparagus.
#ad Tyson Grillin Wings and Salt and Pepper Asparagus #whatsgrillin
It’s probably one of the simplest meals to make for a summer cookout. These Tyson Grillin’ wings cook in about 12 minutes. Perfect for simple grilling ideas. That’s pretty fast if you ask me. I just picked up two packages at Sam’s Club along with some Country Time Lemonade for cold drinks. My teens like to drink lemonade and it makes it that much easier for me. The containers are so large that they make plenty for a crowd.

The Tyson Grillin wings are pretty easy to find in the frozen section. They are easy to put up in the freeze and just pull them out for a spur of the moment summer cookout.

Easter Egg Salad

Easter is almost here! I have a colorful little dish that’s easy to make with all those left over Easter eggs. It’s Easter Egg Salad. It is a lot of fun to create. You can dyed the insides of the eggs with any colors you like. The more colors the more colorful your salad will be. What’s great is you can use this as a side dish on Easter and have more fun making it with your children or teenagers.

Easter Egg Salad | MooshuJenne.com #Foodelicious #Easter

My son, Chancelor, helped me make this as I wasn’t feeling well. He said his fingers were going to be rainbow colored when finished. We used Americolor soft gel paste food color and water to dye the egg whites. The darker colors work better for the whites of the eggs. You can always use vinegar but we didn’t because we didn’t want the salad taste altered.  I love doing icing with these colors. They always have the best color turn out. Oh and they are really cool with pasta too!
