I can't begin to tell you how much nice weather improves my mood and mental health. Is it the same for you? As much as sunshine and warm air makes me giddy, good food really makes my day. I'm coming to the end of my passed-along recipes (SO PLEASE SEND MORE!), but I have one last recipe to post. My wonderful wonderful mother-in-law emailed this to me after a friend emailed it to her. I will be upfront with you here: I have not yet tried it. But, from reading through the recipe, it looks good. I am told it is a Weight Watchers recipe AND it's a slow cooker recipe.
And we all know how I feel about slow cooker recipes.

Super Yum! I believe this one would fill your house with the most amazing scents while it's cooking. Can't wait to try it! If you get to it before I do, let me know how it turns out for you!
I have a few more recipes up my sleeve, but I am always hungry for more. So if you have any worth sharing with the rest of the community (especially ones that are great for Springtime), email them to me for posting!
