Recipe Spotlight

I make a lot of recipes that I find on blogs. So I thought why not show case some of these blogs and the wonderful recipes that I have had the privilege to make.
Today I am doing  a recipe from  
 She has a lot of wonderful recipes. I have tried several of them. This is one of my favorites. It's comfort in a pot.


1 pound smoked sausage, cut in pieces
6 potatoes, peeled and halved
1 large onion, peeled and sliced or chopped
3 or 4 large carrots, scraped and cut in pieces
1 large green pepper
1 large red sweet pepper
1 (14 ounce) can beef broth or 2 cups
1 package onion soup mix
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Place sausage and vegetables in crock pot.  Mix together the broth, onion soup, spices and Worcestershire sauce and pour over the vegetables.  Cook on low for 5 or 6 hours or high for 3 to 4 hours until the potatoes and carrots are done.  Makes six to eight servings. Enjoy! 
As you can see from the picture it can also be cooked in the oven . When cooking it in the oven ,it takes about an hour  to an hour and a half .Depending on your oven.
 I serve this with homemade bread.  I love how I can throw this in the cock pot and walk away.
  Writing this has made me want to make this again. It will be perfect for dinner tomorrow night.   So I am off to the store. Please check her blog out. You will be so glad you did.

  2. That looks very good. A few days ago, I simply just pulled items from the freezer, and they all liked it.

  3. Looks good and I'm pinning this. Stopped by from Sunny Simple.

  4. Super recipe, looks like a nice dinner for a cold winter day here in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. I'm always looking for different ways to use sausage both smoked and fresh. One can only eat so many pasta marinara dishes.
