Slow Cooking Thursday!

I decided to update my banner, I figured with it being a new year, we needed a new one :) Please update your banners when participating ok???

Welcome to my weekly Crockpot Recipes Exchange. It's such a great way to share your favorite dishes or to learn some new ones to make for your family.

What do you think??? Do You have some great recipes to share, or perhaps you're looking for some delicious ones to give you a reason to pull out the ol' crockpot???
Time to pull out those crockpots and put them to good use. If you want to join in, just grab the banner and add your name to Mr Linky :)

I'm doing things a little different today, I decided to give you two recipes instead of one....if anyone wants to share more than one, they are welcome to do it.


2 to 2-1/2 pounds boneless beef round steak
1 to 2 envelopes dry onion soup mix
1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
1/2 cup water

Cut steak into six serving size pieces; place in a 3-qt. slow cooker.
Combine the soup mix, soup and water; pour over beef.

Cover and cook on low for 7 to 8 hours or until meat is tender. Serve with mashed potatoes.

Yielf: 6 servings


1 can (21 ounces) cherry or apple filling
1 package (18-1/4 ounces) yellow cake mix
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup chopped walnuts, optional

Place pie filling in a 1-1/2-qt. slow cooker. Combine dry cake mix and butter(mixture will be crumbly); sprinkle over filling. Sprinkle with walnuts if desired. Cover and cook on low for 2-3 hours. Serve in bowls.

Yield: 10-12 servings.

Hey Sandra! I love the new banner, but unfortunately I'd already done my post up so I'll have to use it next time. I also didn't put what my recipe title into Mr. Linky...not doing so good today am I!!

Have a fabulous day!

Hi Sandra,
I am just reading the other comments and realized I used the old banner also, and forgot to put my recipe title. I'll try harder next week. Your dessert recipe sounds very yummy!

Donnetta said...

Oh, that dessert dish sounds wonderful! I can almost smell and taste it now. Add a little vanilla ice cream on top....

Thanks for sharing this! I had no idea a dish like this could be done in a crockpot!

Good Morning Sandra,
Both recipes look so good. I will add the new banner next week. It is so happy looking.
Thanks for doing this.

Those recipes look very good, Sandra! And I really like the new banner! My post is up!

Happy Slow Cooking Thursday, I hope you are having a great day!

Susanne said...

Both of these sound absolutely yummy. Will be trying the cake on the weekend for sure.

Kara said...

The new banner looks great!

Paula said...

I serve the beef w/mushroom gravy frequently on Sundays. It's so yummy with potatoes!

Have a great day!

Michelle said...

After I added my link I noticed there were quite a few roast recipes today - yum!

This dessert you posted sounds so great! I have the yellow cake mix, but not the filling. I need to go to the commissary tonight so I know what I'm adding to my list!

Ms. Kathleen said...

Oh wow! Yum and more yum! As soon as I am over this stupid flu I need to try this... so saving recipes!

Your site is so cute! I don't know if I told you that before or not but it is so cute!


Dianne said...

First timer here so can I get a bye on the banner this week! I'm looking forward to trying some of these.

Annie said...

I'm a first timer too, but I use the crockpot all the time and have lots of good standby recipes I look forward to posting!
Mine is up (a little late :)
