I don’t know about you, but there’s just something about sheltering in place that makes me hungry! Or is it hangry? But it’s also reignited my love of cooking and baking. The hubs and I have had a blast discovering new recipes and enjoying old favorites. This super easy bar cookie recipe is one I made a million times back in the day when I was always baking up sweets and treats for my kiddos. This recipe brings back tons of happy memories!Continue reading “Easy Baking Mix Bar Cookies”
Hi friends! The hubs has a crazy six day work schedule, and for us, Sunday is our day to run errands, rest, recharge, and recuperate! In short, it’s our favorite day, because it’s the most quality time we get to spend together. Another activity we enjoy is cooking and eating together! Actually, he does most of the cooking, but who’s counting? One of our go-to meals on Sunday evenings is what we call our “big salad”…it’s basically everything but the kitchen sink thrown onto a plate…tons of greens and veggies and everything good and healthy. One of our recent discoveries is Balsamic Onions. They’re the perfectly sweet and healthy touch to an otherwise boring salad.Continue reading “Delicious Balsamic Onions”
Mama was the best cook. And she loved to experiment with recipes, adapting them and making them her own. One very special dish was her Beef Curry. It was our family’s favorite, and it became the go-to dish for birthdays. I’m pretty sure that every member of our clan had the privilege of celebrating their birthday at Mom and Dad’s house with a heaping plate of Beef Curry and Rice, followed by ‘the cake’, which was a simple chocolate sheet cake slathered with chocolate and pecan icing.
Mama would have turned 89 this October. Each October, I miss her more and more, and this year I decided that a good way to remember her was to make up a batch of her Beef Curry, adapting it (as she would have done) to my Instant Pot. Continue reading “Quick and Easy Instant Pot Beef Curry”
I can’t stand a hot kitchen. And in August the whole world just feels like one gigantic hot kitchen! My hubs usually grills on Sundays. I love it, because it doesn’t heat up the kitchen, and he does most of the cooking! And oh, by the way, it’s always delicious. But I recently gave the guy a break from the grill and decided to cook up some yummy French Dip Sandwiches in the Instant Pot. The Instant Pot makes it quick AND easy, and one very special ingredient, beer, makes it amazing! Read on for my Instant Pot French Dip Beer Sandwich recipe.
