Loaded Mashed Potatoes

A quick and easy way to jazz up plain mashed potatoes. There's no limit to what you can add to yours. Pretty much any cheese will work, I've added sharp cheddar here. Then add bacon, diced onion and whatever else you like to your potatoes. These make a great side dish or meal on their own!

Slow Cooker Beef Phở

Phở is a delicious, long simmering Vietnamese beef soup with a rich, flavourful broth and light rice noodles.  Often garnished with fresh herbs, onions, and crisp bean sprouts, the complex but light broth is flavoured with cinnamon, star anise, cloves and cardamom

The slow cooker makes the process of simmering this soup much easier.  Simply add all ingredients to the slow cooker and allow it to do all the work for you!  

Top your bowl with thin sliced beef, meatballs, fresh herbs and onions before serving and enjoy a warm bowl of traditional Vietnamese comfort food!

New Year New Blog!

Hello and Welcome!

Some of you reading this started this journey with me at kristenskitchen.blog.ca, for those of you who did and who visit here I thank you for your readership and support!

The reason for the move is simple. Ease of use.
This site allows faster and easier posting.  I can complete an entire post from my iPhone if I want to and I can upload images from my phone and computer directly to the site. It just makes things smoother and easier.

I will be slowly editing and moving over the posts from the old Kristen's Kitchen and uploading them here but this process will take a little time.  In the mean time, please enjoy the new, comment, and let me know what you think!  I'm always open to requests and suggestions.  Feel free to leave a comment or contact me on twitter @KristensBlog or on Facebook.

I hope you enjoy the new site, new look and I look forward to seeing you more frequently in this new year!
