Slow Cooker Peach BBQ Chicken

Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken

Oh. My. Word. This might just be the best BBQ chicken you’ve ever tasted. Yep, it’s that good. I decided to experiment this week and use some of our favorite Livesay Peach BBQ Sauce with a little chicken. I also brought out the slow cooker this week since it’s September now and that just seems like the thing to do.

The result? Amazing.

INGREDIENTS:

2 lbs chicken breasts

1 cup Livesay Peach BBQ Sauce (Or sub with your favorite)

1/4 cup Brown Sugar

1 TBS Worcestershire Sauce

DIRECTIONS:

Place the chicken in the slow cooker.

In a separate bowl, mix together the BBQ sauce, brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce. Pour over the chicken and cook about 4 hours or until chicken is done. Shred the chicken while inside the slow cooker with a fork, it should pull a part easily.

Serve on bread, hamburger buns, over a potato or alone. You will LOVE this!

10 Recipes Using Fall Produce

As we head into fall it’s time to enjoy some of that delicious fall produce. These 10 recipes should help you get started on your fall cooking. I’m sharing this post in partnership with The Produce Gathering, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

10 Recipes with Fall Produce

I absolutely love cooking in the fall. The summer tends to be somewhat of a chore to cook especially in Oklahoma because it is just so hot. It’s great to go outside and grill, but it’s suffocating hot here, not a dry heat but a very humid heat. Then, fall starts to creep in and suddenly I start getting inspired again to cook and get back in the kitchen. I also happen to love fall produce, then I start dreaming about delicious baked goods with tasty produce.

Are you ready for fall and especially fall produce? I have already seen so many tasty treats in the produce basket with The Produce Gathering. I just ordered Apple Butter and a large order of local apples recently too with many recipes to create using them in mind.

Slow Cooker Chili

Slow Cooker Chili

Just in time to usher in Fall! I was thinking about some new meal packs to offer up in our next Produce Gathering sale and homemade chili sounded perfect to me.

I add a lot of veggies to our chili, if it were just me, I’d add twice as many as this but to please a whole house, I think this is the perfect amount. You can also adjust how much seasoning you want to add or if you want to add peppers, I absolutely do not like spicy foods so I omit the jalapeño all together.

INGREDIENTS:

1 diced white onion

1 diced sweet potato

1 diced red pepper

1 diced green pepper

2 diced roma tomatoes (you can sub with the canned version if you’d like)

1 jalapeno pepper (optional)

3 cloves minced garlic

2 pounds ground beef (or ground turkey)

2 tsp chili powder (or less if you’d like)

1 tsp dried oregano

1 TBS ground cumin

1 15 ounce can tomato sauce (confession: I forgot this and added pasta sauce at the last minute, it worked great)

DIRECTIONS:

Chop up all of your veggies and add to the slow cooker, cover with ground beef or turkey. Then, add in your seasonings and tomato sauce. Mix the ingredients up a bit and set to high for 4 hours. The smell of this chili is amazing and will make your entire house smell delicious!

Our kiddos love cheese and sour cream on top of their chili, a healthy substitution option is to use greek yogurt instead of sour cream. It’s delicious and much healthier!

Slow Cooker Applesauce

Applesauce

Right now, apples are in season and have been very popular in our sale. Our apples are from Livesay Orchards and the variety they offer is amazing. I recently discovered Jonathan apples which are sweet yet not too sweet and they’re great for putting a new spin on any applesauce recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 8 medium size apples
  • 1/2 white sugar OR light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup water

    Note: You can add cinnamon, I did not feel it was needed with this apple but it is entirely up to you.Directions:

    Peel and core the apples. You can slice them up smaller if you’d like but even the bigger cuts of apple will be softened over time and easy to blend.

    Add to the slow cooker and pour water on top.

    Then, add cinnamon (optional) and sugar. You can use white sugar or light brown depending on what you like. With a spoon, stir ingredients together in your slow cooker and cook on low for a few hours or until softened.

    Blend in the food processor or with a hand mixer and serve warm. Enjoy!

Grilled Sweet Potatoes with Cinnamon Creamed Honey

Sweet Potatoes and Creamed Honey

Creamed Honey. This is a thing and it’s insane. INSANE.

The honey we offer in our weekly sales is made right here in Tulsa by Roark Acres Okie Honey. But, they don’t just do raw honey. They also do creamed honey. Oh, my friends.

This past weekend, I took my sister’s idea for Grilled Sweet Potatoes and added a spin of my own. I have a think for Roark Acres Cinnamon Creamed Honey so I thought combining it with sweet potatoes would be great. But, combining it with grilled sweet potatoes is even better!

First, I cleaned and sliced the potatoes. I laid out a sheet of foil and placed the potatoes on the foil then covered it with another sheet to create a pocket.

Sweet Potatoes and Creamed Honey

During this stage, you can add butter over the sweet potatoes. I actually added the creamed honey here but I think it would have been better to add at the end after they were grilled. Either way tastes amazing though.

Close your foil packet and lay out on the grill. It took about 20 minutes for the sweet potatoes to soften. I threw them in a bowl and tossed them with the Cinnamon Creamed Honey. If you have their Pecan Soaked Honey, you can add that in there too! Oh. My. Word.

Sweet Potatoes and Creamed Honey

I’ll be honest, I was supposed to be making these for the entire family but they never got to eat them. I skipped the meat on the grill and ate these instead. Unreal, it’s like dessert for dinner! Try it, I double dog dare you!
