Main Dish: Crock Pot French Dip Sandwiches via Pinterest
2-3 lb oven roast
2 cans beef broth (about 4 cups)
2 pkgs Lipton Onion Soup Mix
White Italian sub rolls
Provolone cheese slices
Put roast in crock pot. Add beef broth and soup mix. Cook on low 7-8 hours. Shred roast with a fork, and return shredded beef to crock pot for a few more minutes. Slice open bread, and place beef on one side, top beef with cheese slices. Broil open sandwich in oven for a few minutes, until the cheese gets melted and bubbly. Remove from oven, and serve with a ladle of au-jus left in crock pot.
Dessert Time: Paula Deen's Infamous Banana Pudding via Pinterest
2 bags Pepperidge Farm Chessmen cookies
6 to 8 bananas, sliced
2 cups milk
1 (5-oz) box instant French vanilla pudding
1 (8-oz) package cream cheese, softened
1 (14-oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (12-oz) container frozen whipped topping thawed
Line the bottom of a 13x9 by 2-inch dish with 1 bag of cookies and layer bananas on top.
In a bowl, combine milk and pudding mix and blend well using a mixer. Using another bowl, combine cream cheese and condensed milk and mix until smooth. Fold the whipped topping into the cream cheese mixture. Add cream cheese mixture to pudding mixture and stir until blended. Pour the mixture over the cookies and bananas and cover with remaining cookies. Refrigerate until ready to serve.


  1. Yum. Crockpot recipes are the best. Thanks to you, i'm now very hungry :)

  2. I made that banana pudding a couple months ago... To. Die. For! I took it to a party and it was seriously gone before we even finished cooking the food on the grill!

  3. Ah! Banana pudding is by far my favorite dessert. And ice cream. Thanks, Bluebell. ;)

  4. These both look scrumptious!!! I am adding them to my recipe book ASAP! Thanks for sharing!!!

  5. Oh yum! I'll have to try both :)

    I made a banana poke cake last night, but the banana flavored pudding just wasn't great, so I can't wait to try this one!!

  6. Is it bad that I want to face plant right into that banana pudding! I've heard great things about that recipe. I will be trying it soon!

  7. Yummy! I guess we both had recipes on the brain today!
