Slow Cooker Pot Roast

This week I decided to take it easy making our weekly dinner with Pete’s family. And there’s not much easier than putting everything into the slow cooker and walking away! I love my slow cooker! I’m making the meal here and I can carry the slow cooker to Pete’s. The lid on my slow cooker locks so I don’t even have to worry about spills in the car! This week’s family dinner is Slow Cooker Pot Roast!

Blogs You Should Check Out 4

Ruchi’s Veg Kitchen is the perfect place to find vegetarian recipes but there’s so much more! If you’re a dessert lover like me you’ve got to check out Ruchi’s blog! I mean No Bake Oreo Nutella Cheesecake? Oh, yeah!

Bern Bakes is another must-read if you love baking! Bernadine is the baker I want to be when I grow up! With her Cranberry, Raisin, and Lemon Biscotti I could die a happy woman!

Make it Ultra is not the kind of blog I usually read but Eric has some really insightful posts that I think can benefit everyone. 5 Easy Steps to Stay Motivated is an example. We all need a little nudge sometimes!

Recipe in a Bottle is another great blog if you’re a foodie! Baked Brie Bites is a total “must make” for me!

Home, Hugs, Huskies is Lindsay’s utterly lovely blog. She is an author, illustrator, and mom to kids and dogs! Throwback; My Son Looks Just Like His Dad had me spraying coffee all over the keyboard with the first picture!

Jean’s No Knead Herb Bread

If you’ve read some of my early posts you’ve read about my friend Jean. She was Nanny Jean to my kids and not only a beloved friend but my mentor in so many ways. Jean was patient in her teaching as I was a very young wife and mom. I was really nervous when she told me she was going to have me make bread for the first time! But she taught me a really simple, really delicious way to make Jean’s No Knead Herb Bread and I still make it to this day!

Kicked Up Chicken Fried Steak

From the time I was a little girl I’ve had a love affair with chicken fried steak. It’s definitely one of my top comfort foods! I love that I can make it as simple or as complex as I like and still have the same “Oh this is yummy” feeling about it. Since Mr. Comfortable and I have been on a spicy food kick lately I decided to make Kicked Up Chicken Fried Steak to satisfy both the comfort food and spicy food cravings!

Learning to Sew with Eileen

It seems as if it took me forever to schedule a day with Eileen so she could start teaching me to sew. This was entirely my fault. I started doing other things and kept forgetting to call her to arrange my lesson. She finally gave up waiting for me and told me she’d be uptown having lunch with Pete & Andi’s youngest daughter and she could come by right after. I jumped at the chance! Eileen can sew anything! And learning to sew with Eileen would be fun!

Learning to sew is fun!
