We are all loving soup right now… it’s comforting and a great way to give healthy nutrition to our families. I especially adore slow cooker soups because it makes cooking dinner so much more simple! Plus, you get to enjoy the aromas of it slowly cooking throughout the day. Our French Dip Soup was inspired by my long-time love of the french dip sandwich–roast beef, au jus, onions, garlic, a couple of spices, fresh rosemary, and don’t forget a measure of love! OMG. Then we take it right over the top with melted cheese baguette slices. I know. You’ll be so in love as well. 🙂

Slow Cooker Tips; French Dip Soup with Cheese Baguette Toasts Recipe
Let’s just have a little talk about our slow cookers here for a minute. . .
As most of you know I’m a graduate of the Culinary School and one of the classes that’s required is Sanitation and Safety. During this class we had an eye-opening chat about slow cookers and how they can be the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and pathogens.
- If not careful they can be the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and pathogens.
- Preheat your crock pot just like you preheat your oven so plug it in and turn it to the high setting to get it nice and hot from the start for cooking. After all there is only one little probe heating the whole slow cooker!
- Add everything into the crock pot as warmed up as it can be, to cut down on the getting-the-food-hot portion of cooking, this is where you need to be cautious and make sure it is all hot and up to cooking temperature in 2-3 hours.
- If food stays between 41 degrees and 135 degrees for 4 hours, then it has to be thrown out because the bacteria and pathogens have had much too much time to grow and a food borne illness is a likely result.
- If you add meat; be sure it is thawed and NEVER added frozen, if it’s beef or pork brown it first.
- Add liquids hot ie: like use HOT water or warm up any liquids in the microwave first then add them in already hot.
- Spray the ceramic insert with cooking spray to make clean up a snap! It’ll wipe out with no sticking!
Slow Cookers are wonderful things and if we take a couple of quick precautions to keep food safe while using them… they are even better! 🙂

Happy Friday and it’s FIT FRIDAY with Miss Nichole!
Last night I was talking to a group of moms via Zoom (Zoom has turned into a lifesaver for so many households these last few weeks!). The leader of our group asked each person to talk about something positive or that they are proud of, during these times it is necessary to find some positive each and every day. More than one mom talked about sticking to a workout plan. Now, before I go any further let me say this, these women are not bikini models or hoping to get into a fitness show come fall. No, these are your average looking moms just trying to feel good about themselves and keep up with their kids. These moms acknowledged that they feel better when they get in a workout, even though working out is often one of the first things to get shoved to the back of the line when chaos and stress hit the house.
