Slow Cooking Thursday - Creamy Slow Cooker Tortellini Soup9:19 AM
Well, I decided it was time to bring back one of my favorite features, my Slow Cooking Thursday.
I kind of changed it to Cooking Thursdays at first, to accommodate those who didn't have slow cooking recipes to share, but this feature has always held a special place in my heart from the very first post back in 2006.
So, it's back and I intend on sharing lots of yummy slow cooking recipes with you all, are you ready?
This recipe is from Heather Likes Food and it's bookmarked to try one of these days, it looks soooo good.
