Enjoy it either on traditional hamburger buns or slider sandwiches ~ either way you're in for a simple meal that will help you pinch those pennies while you skip the drive thru this week.

  1. I tried one incredible one tonight I got from a friend who found it on Pinterest. It was so easy and so GOOD!

    Oven roast
    5-6 pepperonici peppers
    1 packet dry ranch dressing mix
    1 packet Au Jus mix
    1 stick of butter

    Place all ingredients in slow cooker; cook on low 7-8 hours.

  2. What’s funny is that I think I’ve made yours before and it was recieved with rave reviews from my family! When my friend gave me this recipe, I remember thinking it was very similar to one I had made a few months ago (with just the peppers and Au Jus mix if memory serves). Thank you so much for all that you do especially posting so many wonderful recipes. I have made MANY of them and they never disappoint!

  3. Easy chicken recipes. 3-4 chicken breast (frozen or thawed) I large bottle of Pace picante. Cook on low for 5-7 hrs. Another easy chicken recipe is same as above but lemon juice and rosemary simple and delicious!!
