All in One Pot Meal

Butter Biscuits & Dumplings

I have used this recipe so often, the pages have come out of the cookbook, this cookbook is Betty Crocker’s Cookbook! I favor many recipes in this book, though most I have changed over the years.

What is happening is the more comfortable I am getting in the kitchen, the less I use recipes, even when it comes to baking. I asked my daughter in law Jenny if this was because I was getting good at baking, of if it just means I am lazy, she says it’s because I am good! So I am taking her word for it.


Autumn Beef Stew with Caramelized Onions

Why stew? Who makes stews anymore? Well, I do, they are fun to make, you can use the slow cooker or your oven and they always taste amazing! I do like to caramelize my onions when using, if using other vegetables, such as carrots, turnip etc, I also give them a quick sauté before hand. I am using red wine in this recipe, but this can easily be replaced by stock or water, no worries.
