This is a traditional red beans and rice recipe. The calories are modest, but the fat -- particularly the saturated fat -- make this a recipe best left for special occasions. Try substituting lower-fat meat for a more healthy version!

Super easy, and fun. Not to mention delicious. Recipe is easily altered to serve as many people as you like. Same recipe is awesome for boneless pork too.
You can put white wine in the marinade too, which is really good- about a half cup.
You can sub dry oregano for the fresh just use less, about a tablespoon

Another impromptu recipe based on another slow cooker recipe. I didn't have all the ingredients for the other one, so I improvised with what I had in the house.

Handed down from my Cajun Grandmother. We always ate this with rice, but it is good on potatoes also.Ayeeee!!!
Use the same treatment with any meat you want from chicken to roast. If gravy isn't brown enough add a little kitchen bouqet and no one will know!
