Beef Stew in the Fall

Beef stew is one of the great meals that taste so good when the weather starts to turn. The leaves are changing colors, frost on the cars in the morning, and the smell of a stew cooking through out the day.

And of course I love a meal that takes only about 15 mintues to prepare and is ready to eat when dinner comes around. So for me cooking this dish in the crockpot is always the best choice for me.

Easy to make, delicious tasting Baked Salmon

It doesn’t get easier then this! When I find a recipe where I only have to spend 15 minutes to prepare it – that is a recipe for me! And with this recipe the clean up is just as easy as the preparation.

I used onions instead of shallots since I didn’t have any and the dish turned out great. Although I do think shallots would be better in this dish.

Crepes at any meal

Crepes are a little time consuming, but easy to make. I have always enjoyed eating crepes in restaurants. Once we were in Vegas and ate at this great buffet style French restaurant and one of the sections was crepes. There was a whole table of toppings to choose from and the chef made the crepes fresh for you while you waited which only took a few seconds to cook.

My son always requests these for an after dinner treat since he likes to fill his with strawberry jelly. It takes a little time to cook them on the stove, but if you pile them up inside a dish towel while you make them they stay nice and warm for everyone to enjoy.

Perfect Time of Year for Fresh Salsa

I had to go to a meeting where I was supposed to bring a simple appetizer. So a made a fresh salsa with tortilla chip, doesn’t get more simple then that. It was a big hit; this is one of the best salsa recipes I have ever made. Not to mention the right time of year since yesterday I pulled the last of the onions and tomatoes out of my garden.

Chiken Taco Soup was delicious

I have had a Lawry’s Taco Seasoning in my pantry for quite awhile now. I had planned on making this dish awhile back, but never got around to it. I love tacos and thought this soup sounded delicious.

I did cut back on the cumin and garlic powder which seemed a bit excessive to me, but other then that I followed the directions and it came out great. I even used a slotted spoon to pull out some of the ingredients without the liquid so I could cut some up for my 1 year old. I thought it might be a bit spicy for her taste but she was using both hands to eat it.

Pan Roasted Salmon with Lentils

I am new to cooking with lentils, but wanted to give them a try. I recently purchased a bag of lentils using half of the bag for a Moroccan soup, which I loved. But what to do with the other half. My husband isn’t a big fan of the lentils so I needed to find a dish that would be really good and maybe convert him. I found this on The Food Network everyone who reviewed it gave it a great review. So I thought I would give it a go.

Dinner was a hit, I would definetly make this one again.

I found the best Italian Spaghetti Sauce recipe!

I am Italian so my family has had there share of delicious, wonderful excellent spaghetti sauce. Of course with no real recipe to be handed down, a pinch of this and a pinch of that and add something a little different every time depending on what is in the kitchen. They are great cooks!

I on the other hand really need a recipe that says 1/2 teaspoon and not a pinch of this. Sure I change my recipes all the time sometimes they turn out sometimes not so good. But I wanted a recipe for pasta that would be good every time, and I found it! In the Rosine’s cook book.

Mouth Watering Rotisserie Style Turkey

We have a gas grill that came with the rotisserie attached. When you pull out the grill to put the rotisserie in is a great time to get those hands greasy and clean out the inside of the grill… You will need one of those foil disposable pans to put under the turkey to catch any dripping. I usually fill my about half way full of water. Once you have everything clean and ready it is time to get the turkey.

Rinse off the turkey and pat it dry add some salt and pepper to it, other seasonings if you wish. Then get the turkey nice and tight on the rotisserie itself. If your legs and wings are dangling a bit go ahead and get 2 pieces of wire and clean them with soap and water. Tie one around the legs and one around the wings to keep them nice and tight.
