Cooking for two: 10 Crock-Pot Dinner Recipes

Welcome to my new series! Since my youngest son went off to college in August, I’m a new empty nester. One of the hardest things to get used to, besides his absence, is trying to cook for only my husband and myself. For 20+ years, I’ve cooked for 3 boys. I typically made extra, because, well, growing boys eat a lot. Now, it’s just the two of us and cooking for two is a whole different ball of wax…thus this new series. You’ll be learning along with me.

This series will be published bi-monthly, on the first Thursday every other month. On the first Thursday, during the other months, will be my pioneer recipes series.

Typically, I’ll be using the “tried and true” method. I’ll experiment with a recipe and then share my experiences with all of you. This time, however, I’m publishing a list of 10 crock-pot dinner recipes to share with the one you love. (There’s even a crock-pot quiche recipe!) So, HERE WE GO!

Welcome to The Purple Almond Wellness! I’m Tamara Hoerner, MHNE, RNCP, wellness educator and founder of Purple Almond Wellness. I work with middle-age individuals to help support brain health and develop whole body wellness, in order to improve the quality of their mid-life years. Heart and Alzheimer’s diseases run in my family and I struggled with weight loss, so I strive to help others with similar conditions. Using only nutrition, I rid my body of seasonal allergies, Psoriatic Arthritis and migraines, as well as cured my insomnia. I know what it takes to use food as medicine, especially in middle age. As a wellness educator and Summa Cum Laude graduate of Hawthorn University, I develop personalized nutrition plans and wellness education sessions, to help clients. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
