We were iced in yesterday, but thankfully we stocked up well in advance of this storm. I had this cooking up in the crock pot all day and come dinner time, we couldn't wait to dig in! We served ours over mashed potatoes.
I was feeling a little nostalgic this past week so I made a pie that always reminds me of my grandmother -- raisin pie -- she could make these in her sleep. I was shocked when Mr Mom told me he'd never had it before.
Have you seen the cactus paddles in the vegetable section of your favorite grocery store. They are showing up more frequently these days. I've even seen them in stores in Canada. Karen shares this recipe which serves as a great introduction to them. If you're adventurous and like trying new foods, this one might be for you!
Stirfrys are Mr Mom's favorite dinners, and since he made me a wonderful Valentine's Day dinner this past weekend, it was my turn to treat him to a nice meal tonight. The combination of orange and ginger flavors is a memorable one.
Mr Mom loves tater tots. I think its a throwback memory from his bachelor days. Once in awhile I appease him and make a tater tot casserole. Today was one of those days. We changed up the recipe a bit based on one I saw on Pinterest.
Although at first glance, putting mayonnaise in a cake seems strange, it most likely was Grandma's best kept secret for making a moist chocolate cake, The addition of peanut butter frosting makes for a perfect flavor combo!
I love recipes that make their own gravy, and especially crock pot ones! This recipe meets all those requirements and more! The tomato gravy is a nice change up from regular brown gravy, and the steak, cooked long and low, can be cut with a fork!
