Get out your slow cookers! Grilling season may be coming to an end, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up taste. It’s time for tasty, even easier meals, made in your slow cooker. Whether your schedules are filling up with sports or after school activities, an easy slow cooker recipe will help you get a good meal on the table in no time. And when you use JENNIE-O® Turkey in your favorite recipes, you get all the comfort food taste without the guilt.

I prefer cooking with ground turkey or ground beef most of the time. It’s leaner, lighter and healthier. And I love using my slow cooker! I can turn it on, set the timer and have dinner ready exactly when I want it to be! JENNIE-O® Turkey can be used in so many ways – from meatballs to tacos to chili to full plated meals, the possibilities are endless! One of my personal favorite fall dishes is Turkey and Butternut Squash Chili.

I've been on a gluten free diet since January 2009. It's been an adventure, and a challenge at times. I love to go to new restaurants and try new foods, and being gluten free can make eating out difficult at times. But I will not let my dietary restrictions get in my way of finding new restaurants and products. These are my stories of being a young women in a big city, eating out and trying new foods, all while trying to NOT eat gluten. Like I said, it's an adventure and you are welcome to come along... Please note that as I try to eat gluten free 100% of the time, my intolerance is not as severe as others so please use caution when dining at restaurants that are not certified gluten free.
