CROCK POT SWEET POTATOES, PINEAPPLE AND CRANBERRIES

Crock Pot Sweet Potatoes, Pineapple and Cranberries - TSLC - CopyThis recipe for Crock Pot Sweet Potatoes, Pineapple and Cranberries is a perfect dish for any holiday meal and easy to make.  We like this anytime and not just during the holidays.  It is a combination of sweet and sour that is something different for your dinner table.

3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed

1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries (could use frozen)

1 medium apple, peeled and chopped

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 cup brown sugar

1 (20 ounce) can pineapple chunks, drained (reserve 1/2 cup of the pineapple juice)

2 tablespoons butter

1 cup walnuts or pecans, toasted

Place sweet potatoes, cranberries and apple in crock pot.  In a bowl whisk together the ground cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar and 1/2 cup of reserved pineapple juice.  Pour over the sweet potatoes, cranberries and apple. Toss to cover well.  Add butter to crock pot.  Place drained pineapple chunks in refrigerator to add later.  Cook on low for 6 to 7 hours or high for 4 hours. Stir to cover with juices a couple times.  About an hour before recipe is done, add the drained pineapple and toss with juices to cover.  Toast nuts by placing a single layer of nuts on a microwave-safe plate and nuke them for 1-minute intervals until they become crunchy. Sprinkle on top of your dish before serving.  Makes about 6 to 8 servings.  Enjoy!

Check out our new cookbook, Sweet Things, for all kinds of goodies. Makes a great gift for the cook in your family.

SAUSAGE MINESTRONE SOUP

Smoked Sausage Minestrone Soup - TSLCThis Sausage Minestrone Soup is great any time. Just add your favorite grilled cheese, muffins or cornbread for a meal.  You could substitute chicken or just about any meat in this soup. We love it on a cold day because it is such comfort food.

1 (16 ounce) package smoked sausage, cut in rounds

1/4 cup butter or 4 tablespoons

1/2 cup chopped green pepper

1 medium onion, peeled and chopped

1 cup chopped celery

1 cup chopped carrots

1 (15.25 ounce) can black beans, rinsed (could use kidney beans, chili beans or just about any kind of beans)

2 (14.5 ounce) cans chicken broth

1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano, undrained

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

1 1/2 cups rotini pasta, uncooked (could use macaroni or shells)

Brown the sausage, green pepper, onion and celery in the butter in a skillet on top of the stove.  Remove and add to your soup pot along with carrots, beans, chicken broth, tomatoes, salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce.  Bring to a boil, cover and turn down to simmer for about 30 minutes or until carrots are cooked.  Add the pasta and cook for another 10 to 12 minutes until pasta is tender.  This soup keeps well in the fridge for several days and is good reheated.  Makes about 10 to 12 servings. Enjoy!
