Crockpot Cheesy Ham and Corn Chowder

Combining crockpot recipes with planned leftovers is a great way to maximize both time and money savings. Use leftover ham, and for even faster prep choose frozen diced potatoes instead of peeling and dicing them yourself. If you prefer to avoid processed ingredients, you can substitute Cream of Something soup mix for the cream of […]

The Ham Plan

Here is my “Ham Plan”. I am finding it easier and more economical to have bulk cooking plans for when meats and veggies are on sale or in season. I do a big cooking that lasts a few months (Hopefully! I am still new at this) so I don’t have to cook that particular meat again for a while. I am hoping my chicken will last a while so I can focus on other meats. Here are some of the recipes I made around Easter (next time I will make a big ham or a few medium ones, last time the 20 pound ham was a bit hard to turn every half hour!).
