Both recipes are oh so simple...seriously.
For dinner on a work day I will simply throw three to four chicken breasts into the crockpot and pour some barbeque sauce on top. Turn it on slow cook and when I get home from work it smells delicious and is nearly ready! All I have to do is pull the chicken apart using two forks, throw it back in the pot and serve it with some fresh rolls and coleslaw (check out my recipe here). It's delicious, stress free, and can be eaten for days on end ... if there is any left!
And the dump cake has been around since, well, forever. I think there are even recipe books that go back to the 70's. The ingredients last a long time in the closet so once you buy them so they can always be there if you need a simple last minute desert! And did I say delicious? Of course I did. The 'cake' can be made using apple pie filling, cherry pie filling, or any other kind of pie filling you can think of! It's also simple to split the recipe in half as I did recently for Christmas. I used one can of cherry pie filling and added about two handfuls of frozen blueberries. I used half the box of cake mix and half a stick of butter and it was a perfect desert for four people! A scoop of vanilla icecream on top makes it even better!

Hi there! I'm Kathie, the author behind Creating A Simpler Life blog. I'm excited to share our longterm projects (and planning) toward building our future retirement homestead in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. In the meantime I will be sharing all the other little things we do that are part of creating our simpler life!
