    • Yes it gave it great color and also a bit different taste. The rest if the cheese, green onion and bacon cooked for hours. Then, for example, the green onion on top was a stronger onion flavor than the ones that cooked giving it that extra yum! Then I topped it with sour cream…..so good! Thank you for your nice comment!

    • I write my blog for people like you that don’t think they can cook! I do step by step directions with pictures to make it easy. I can’t tell you how many people said they couldn’t cook but that when they followed my instructions they did. Please give one a try. Thank you so much Joan!

      • I’m always shocked just how many things you can cook in the slow cooker – constantly amazed by it. I keep saying I’ll wait until I am retired and have more time for prep etc. and trying new things, then see your recipes. But finally, I am done with the big projects, still busy, but glad to not create any more work for myself for a while. We have a rainy/stormy weekend off and on, so I’ll stick close to home and do a few posts of some of the Summer pictures I was taking and didn’t get to use.

      • What a relief that must be! I’m so happy you are finally getting a break. I wish the weekend was going to be better. No grandkids and hubby works. I wanted to work outside pruning wisteria and weeding flower beds. I still haven’t redone the fish ponds either! Looking forward to the cooler temps in a week.

      • Yes it is Diane – it was crazy for about six weeks, almost two months. Too bad he’s not gone longer as he did leave work, but no more nights and hope that can continue. It rained and stormed when I first got up and I went back to bed and slept another four hours. I’ll go out now as the sun is shining, but storms off and on til Wednesday, most in the mornings. I’m looking forward to the cooler temps next Thursday – you’ll catch up outside then. I think I’m looking forward to Fall!

      • Haha you know me well! After working on the wisteria/arbor for 6 hours in the extreme heat Saturday, I was almost finished when I realized one of the main beams broke loose and dropped about a foot. It will be a lot of work to jack it up and reattach it. The arbor has been there since 1996 so I am thinking hard about whether I want to tear it down next year. It is so much work and I am trying to make my life easier…lol

      • After seeing your wisteria and the arbors, I certainly can’t blame you Diane and I will tell you that after the Polar Vortex in the Winter of 2014-2015 wiped out all my perennials, including my pride and joy butterfly garden, I never replanted … I was just disgusted and discouraged and did not want all the work either and I was younger. The following Winter we had a similar Winter. It’s a hard decision to make, I know unless you get someone in to help you out, not a Master gardener, but maybe just someone doing gardening for relaxation – perhaps trade that person’s labor for some of your great treats?
