My Take on: Crockpot Green Beans (Thanksgiving Edition)

Thanksgiving dinner is a huge deal at my house. There is always tons of food and in huge quantities. We literally begin cooking at least 2-3 days before just to make sure we have enough time to complete the entire dinner (desserts included). Here is one side dish I make that's delicious and won't leave you standing over the stove all day. I just love low maintenance dishes!

These slightly spicy, very garlicky green beans are always the talk of the town during the holidays! Give them a try, let me know what you think!



Pick, cut and wash fresh green beans ......You can use frozen too but during the holidays I prefer fresh.


Slice about 8-10 cloves of garlic (yes I know that's a lot, but it's soooo worth  it!)
Slice a whole onion
Add: teaspoon or two of red pepper flakes
2 cubes of chicken base
and a smoked turkey leg .....The smoked neck is also good, but I find the legs have the most meat. (DIE HARD MEAT-EATER RIGHT HERE!)



Add all ingredients to the crock pot. Pour in Chicken stock...You can use water if you like... cover and cook on high for 6-8 hours. ( add salt and pepper to your liking, but be careful- the chicken base, chicken stock, and smoked turkey are all very salty)

I usually start the beans in the morning. Plug the crockpot into an inconspicuous place (out of my way) and leave them alone. 


Enjoy!

My Take on: Cranberry-Orange Sauce (Thanksgiving Edition)



I absolutely love Cranberry Sauce! It's my favorite condiment at the Thanksgiving table. I have only eaten cranberry sauce from the can so I figured I'd give it a try...... And it was great!
Let's get started.....
In a pot mix 1/2 cup of both OJ and water



add 3/4 cup sugar (brown sugar would be great also)
You can also add a shot of bourbon but I was make this with my little bro so ......no alcohol



Turn heat on medium-low and stir to dissolve the sugar



Once dissolved add fresh rinsed cranberries




and orange zest



bring to a boil and allow to simmer for 10 minutes stirring occasionally 



This is what it looks like after 10 mins. Allow to cool then your cranberry sauce is ready to use. 
I like to eat mine cold so after cooling, I put mine in the refrigerator until ready to use. 


If you try this let me know what you think!

My take on: Hot Apple Cider (Crockpot Edition) (Thanksgiving Edition)


I just LOVE to make hot apple cider during the fall and winter months. There's something so comforting about hot cider. It's fruity and spicy and gives just the right amount of warmth! Here's how I make crockpot cider for my family......




I usually buy the non concentrated bottled cider.... it's seems a bit clean and I like the taste. The taste is very light, not too sweet, and very apple-y.


Lets get started ...... in a crockpot.....



Add 1/2  to 1 cup of sugar














Add two Cinnamon sticks




About 10 whole allspice berries




add about 7 cloves


















Add orange slices

















You can do something like this..... but there's really no need to....I mean really .....It is pretty and all













Set on high for 2-3 hours or low for 4-6 hours.....After cider has had time to steep you can keep it on low for the remainder of the day if needed. Just remember to remove orange rings and cinnamon sticks. Enjoy! 



FYI! This is also good with Rum! or Whiskey!

It's all in the Lyrics: Say You Love ME



Say you love me to my face
I need it more than your embrace
Just say you want me, that's all it takes
Heart's getting torn from your mistakes


'Cause I don't wanna fall in love
If you don't wanna try,
But all that I've been thinking of
Is maybe that you might
Baby it looks as though we're running out of words to say
And love's floating



Just say you love me, just for today
And don't give me time 'cause that's not the same
Want to feel burning flames when you say my name
Want to feel passion flow into my bones
Like blood through my veins


'Cause I don't wanna fall in love
If you don't wanna try,
But all that I've been thinking of
Is maybe that you might
Baby it looks as though we're running out of words to say
And love's floating away


Won't you stay?
Won't you stay?
Slowly slowly you run for me,
But do you know me at all?
Some one told me love controls everything
But only if you know



'Cause I don't wanna fall in love
(No no no no)
If you don't wanna try
(Try sometime) 
But all that I've been thinking of
Is maybe that you might
(You might)
'Cause I don't wanna fall in love
If you don't wanna try
But all that I've been thinking of
Is maybe that you might
Baby it looks as though we're running out of words to say
And love's floating away
Won't you stay?
Won't you stay?
