  1. Oh goodness... You had me at Crock Pot and sealed the deal w/ sweet potato mash!! Delish! Pinning it immediately. AND! I just started playing around with My Recipe Magic a few days ago and I've gotta say I love it. As someone who just went through a bunch of weight loss and is now trying to maintain, it's important that I attempt to eat and cook more than just salads and grilled chicken and having the nutritional information so readily accessible is awesome!! Cannot wait to keep messing with it! *Krystina
