Crockpot Carnitas

We have been eating tacos all week!  We never seem to get tired of them. I decided to try a new carnita recipe.  Actually I created this recipe based off the previous version.  This version is a lot less hands on.  In the morning you throw everything into the crockpot and walk away until dinner […]

Easy Italian Beef

I visited my parents last week and mom made italian beef.  It was so good!!  And super easy to make too. You put pepperoncini, a brown gravy packet, an italian seasoning packet and a large roast in a crockpot and cook 6-8 hours on low.  The beef is ready when it begins to fall apart […]

Beef Stew

Wow!  This beef stew is amazing!  It tastes like Ireland.  The smells, the flavors, everything reminds me of Ireland.  One thing I learned from this recipe is that Guinness Beer is a must.  We now have a large portion of beer in our freezer…but that just means we get to make beef stew again soon! We followed […]

Crock Pot Risotto

We got a wine opener for Christmas…and I am so glad we did!  In the past I could never get a bottle open unless Den was home, but now I can do it easily, which is great news for cooking.  I think wine adds a beautiful flavor to certain dishes like this risotto: This risotto […]

Crock Pot, Pot Roast

I made a pot roast for the first time. I am still very proud of the accomplishment. It has to be one of the most traditional foods here and I’ve never made it. I wasn’t sure how to make it, so I looked at a ton of recipes and combined them to fit what ingredients […]
