Mom’s All Day Pork Roast

I usually buy a pork roast butt (if it has some fat mixed in, that makes it more moist), maybe 2 or 3, when they are on sale. I typically leave the house by 7a and when I arrive back home at 530, dinner is ready!

My mom always used this recipe and now I share it with my family (thanks mom!).

Just a few ingredients: Pork Roast, 1 can of Cream of Mushroom soup, salt, pepper, garlic salt

  1. Spray Crockpot with non-stick cooking spray or use one of those easy clean up crockpot liners.
  2. If the roast has a “net” cut it off and put roast in crockpot.
  3. Spread mushroom soup all over roast and then fill 1/2 the can with water and add to pot.
  4. Sprinkle salt, pepper and garlic salt to preferred taste.
  5. Cover and put on low or 8/10 hours, whatever setting your crockpot has.


Easy, Buffalo Chicken Appetizer


  • 2 large cans of chicken
  • 1/2 cup of Buffalo hot sauce (I use Frank’s Red Hot)
    • if you like it a little spicier, add more
  • 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup of cream cheese (softened)
  • 1 cup of sour cream

Preheat oven to 350. Mix all ingredients together in bowl (saving a little cheddar cheese to sprinkle on top). Put in an 8×8 greased dish, sprinkle a little cheese on top, put in oven for 20-30 minutes. Serve with tortilla chips, so yummy and easy!

Hospital Stay

Unfortunately, last week we were in the hospital with our daughter – one of the scariest places to be with a child. Thankfully, we figured out what was wrong and she is on the road to recovery. However, I pray and give kudos to those parents who have chronically ill children and are in the hospital or medical facility frequently, you are stronger than you know! (high five!)

Sunday-a mix of worship and worry

I had always loved Sundays! It was a time for worship, family dinner, naps and being a day of rest. But these days, my Sundays consist of catching up on unfinished chores from Saturday and planning for the week ahead, inbetween going to church. And after Sundays, I know comes Monday -a day of worry of working all week and leaving my kids again. I have to give this worry up to God and ask for his help! Help to get done what I need too and not worry about tomorrow, so that when my kids think back about sundays, they have the same good feelings I had!

Best Birthday Cake Ever – Ice Cream Sandwich Cake

  • Use a 9×13 pan
  • Cool Whip (16 oz)
  • Ice Cream Sandwiches (about 24)
  • Optional: Sprinkles, caramel, hot fudge, chocolate
  1. Unwrap ice cream sandwiches (this is an easy step that the kids can help with).
  2. Lay  half of the ice cream sandwiches in pan
  3. Cover with a layer of cool whip
  4. Create another layer of  ice cream sandwiches on top of cool whip
  5. Cover with another layer of Cool Whip
  6. Now add your favorite toppings! Colored sprinkles make it look pretty 😉
  7. Keep in freezer until ready to serve.
