Slow Cooker Beef Stew

Standard

Beef Stew…….the perfect comfort food, so hearty and flavorful. It’s also something that I didn’t have mastered……until now! My husband, my food critic gave this recipe 2 thumbs up which means it’s blog worthy. With a chill in the air, this is the perfect time to share this recipe with all of you! I prepped the entire stew the night before, refrigerated it in my slow cooker dish, popped it in the slow cooker base the next morning and let it slow cook all day long. The result was perfection!

Carrot Zucchini Cupcakes

Standard

Hi ya’ll! I made these cupcakes with the last zucchini I picked from our garden and I’m just now getting around to sharing the recipe with you. Now I want them again, guess I’m going to have to buy a zucchini to make them this time. My husband raved over these cupcakes, said they were some of the best he ever had. I have to agree, I didn’t even think they needed the frosting, however, I didn’t complain about the frosting either! Either way they are moist, full of flavor and simply delicious! Not a fan of cream cheese frosting, well then skip it and eat them like a muffin.

One Dish Shrimp & Sausage Bake

Standard

I couldn’t resist sharing this accidental recipe I made today…..it’s accidental because I had intended on using these ingredients for a recipe I saw on Pinterest, kabobs with sausage, shrimp, corn & potatoes, but my meal plan for tonight wasn’t defrosted so I improvised with these ready to go ingredients.  The result is a super easy & delicious shrimp & sausage bake…..a nod to a good ole southern shrimp boil. Tons of flavor with minimal effort!
