Ground Beef Potato Soup

Another one for the book.  I don't normally make soups during the summer but it's been raining so I thought that would be a good excuse to play around with a good soup recipe.  This one can be made in a slow cooker or on top of the stove.  Either way it's simple to make.  Watch for this one this winter when Think With Your Taste Buds - Beef comes out.

Slow Cooker Spaghetti

This delicious dish has just been added to my manuscript file for Think With Your Taste Buds - Beef.  The only prep required is cooking the beef.  Everything is then placed in your slow cooker and cooked on low for 8 hrs.  Can't get any simplier than that.  And the flavor is wonderful!  Mark this recipe as one you must try when Think With Your Taste Buds - Beef comes out this winter.  In the meantime don't forget to get your copy of Think With Your Taste Buds - Desserts on Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
