Easy Sausage & Potatoes in the Crock pot

Tara Wright Breakfast & Brunch, Main Dishes, Recipe 0 Comments

I just love my crockpot, don’t you?
This is such an easy and delicious recipe, I don’t know why I don’t make it more often. You can experiment with the types of meat you use. Try hamburger, ground turkey, crumbled bacon or Temp-ah instead of using sausage. Leftovers are perfect reheated the next day for lunch (or breakfast)

Pumpkin Spice Granola with Chia & Almonds

Tara Wright Desserts, Recipe, Snacks 0 Comments

This is my “Big Batch” Granola that I make when we run out. Granola is one of the things I learned to make years ago when I realized how much sugar is in the store-bought stuff.
Pumpkin has it’s own sweetness and is a good source of Vitamin E, Thiamin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Iron, Magnesium and Phosphorus and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Riboflavin, Potassium, Copper and Manganese.
Chia Seeds are added as they are rich in fiber, heart-healthy omega-3 fats, protein and vitamins including manganese, phosphorus, copper, selenium, iron, magnesium and calcium.

1/2 cup over our favorite yogurt or just with some Almond Milk is a family favorite and a highly satisfying start to the day. It’s great for a quick breakfast as you’re headed out the door too!

I add the chia seed and chopped almonds to the liquid ingredients so they better stick to the oatmeal. Otherwise they often end up at the bottom of the granola bin.
