CrockPotting Blog

I saw Stephanie on Rachael Ray's show a couple weeks ago, since she made a resolution to use her crockpot every day for a year and blog about it. She was getting over 4000 hits per day before she was on TV. I wish I found her blog sooner. I am really enjoying it and have already tried a couple recipes. (the 5 layer brownies and chicken nachos). Go here and check out her blog. She makes me laugh all the time and tells if the recipe was good or a flop. She is quick to write back when you email her, too. I shared the crockpot recipes I have on my blog with her.

Breakfast Pizza

1 lb. breakfast sausage, cooked and crumbled
1 tube crescent roll dough or pizza crust
6 eggs, beaten
2 Tbsp. Homemade Gourmet Grandmother's Sunday Roast Seasoning
2 c. shredded Cheddar

Cook, drain, crumble the sausage. Turkey sausage is a great substitute. Unroll the dough into a rectangle on a cookie sheet. Use fingers or dough roller to smooth out and seal seams if using crescent dough. If using a pizza crust, create an edge to keep egg onto crust. Beat 6 eggs in a bowl w/ Grandmother's Sunday Seasoning. Pour onto crust. Spread cooked sausage on top, then add cheese to that. Cook in preheated oven at 35o Fahrenheit for 10-15 min.

I made this Saturday and it was so simple. I think I will cook the meat up ahead of time to make it even quicker next time. It was a hit w/ DH and DD decided not to try it, but I know she would like it. She is not a morning person!

This double page layout is the beginning of the pages for DD's 1st birthday party (and she just turned 3!). We did a Hula theme w/ decorations and DD's and my clothes. No one else dressed the part. She had a cake w/ Lilo and Stitch on it and a surfboard. I used the SU set Do the Hula for invitations. I did this layout for a VSBN challenge on SCS to grab items to use in only 3 min. and complete the page in only 1 hr. I did get the left page in an hour, but I needed about 30 min. to do the right page. So, I guess I did the challenge, since each page was under one hour.
