Turkey and Cranberry Sandwich... "YUM"

I've never had a turkey and cranberry sandwich, not until 5 years ago, and after I came across this recipe, which was posted by Emily Mathews at food.com. The turkey and cranberry sauce goes so well together, plus the bacon, mayo, and provolone cheese, brings this sandwich over the top. I love this sandwich, and hope others will give it a try!

I have a really delicious Apple Dip recipe to share!

I hope members of this group will try this delicious dip recipe. You can serve this as an appetizer, snack, or even as a dessert if you like. Plus you can choose your favorite type of apple to go along with this dip. I happen to like Granny Smith and Golden Delicious Apples.

Venison Stroganoff, this was today's dinner!

Today I made one of my favorite venison dishes, which to me is great comfort food. This stroganoff is not like most stroganoffs, while others are made with a creamy white sauce, this one is made with a creamy tomato sauce. For those who enjoy venison and stroganoff, I hope you will give this recipe a try. I don't think you'll be disappointed!

Oven to Crockpot Conversion

Hey everyone! So, I LOVE using my Crock-pot to cook in my apartment. Our building is older, built in the 70s, and the appliances aren't much younger. My oven tuns on gas, and if the door is left totally closed, then it gets WAY too hot. So, I have diverted to my beloved Crock-pot instead.
Now, I have TONS of recipes, most of which call for cooking on the stove-top or the oven. Since my oven is so hit or miss, I wanted to convert my recipes to be able to be cooked and delicious in my Crock-pot instead.
After some research, I found this little webpage that gives a fantastic chart on how to convert cooktimes from the oven to the Crock-pot equivalent. And, I wanted to share it with you all. I hope this helps! Happy Cooking! ♥
