Super Easy Asian Yellow Rice


Going out to eat at Chinese restaurants is one of my favorite things to do! I know I can always find something delicious on the menu! When I can't go out, I love to try those same menu items at home.

Pot Roast with a Dijon Cream Sauce

 This is a recipe that I saw floating around Facebook. What caught my eye about this pot roast recipe was the cream sauce. I've never made a pot roast with a cream sauce, but I loved that idea.

Slow Cooker Mexican Beef Stew

On those rare days when I just don't feel like hovering over lots of pots and pans on the stove, I will automatically get out my slow cooker! It's my way of getting a scrumptious meal prepared with very little effort! And I never use my slow cooker without these Reynolds slow cooker liners because when I do, I know I won't have to scrub my slow cooker!
This slow cooker recipe was posted on Allrecipes.com by the Reynolds wrap company. As soon as I saw the recipe I printed it out because I love a good beef stew! But I never thought to try one with Mexican flavors! Very cool idea Reynolds!

Well these Bloody Fingers got a big smile and a  thumbs up this year! Ha ha...get it...'thumbs up'?

Pumpkin Pie Dip

Pumpkin Pie Dip
I love all things pumpkin flavored such as cookies, smoothies, latte's, muffins and now dip! I think this is a genius idea! It's so quick to make...no cooking required! Just mix all the ingredients together and chill until ready to serve! Then dig in to this heavenly creamy pumpkin dessert with your favorite cookies or crackers. I used graham crackers at first. Then I tried this dip with unsalted saltine crackers. Both were very good, but I think I liked the unsalted crackers better because the graham crackers were a little too sweet with this dip.

I found my new favorite pumpkin creation on a food blog called...

Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend



If there's one thing I've learned while on my recipe journey, it's that you can make (from scratch) just about any ingredient you'll need for recipes! I never thought to make my own spice mixtures until chatting with so many experienced home cooks on various cooking websites! Why spend $7 for a bottle of a spice mixture if you have the individual spices already in your kitchen cabinet? You just need to find out what spices are in the blend you need and mix up a batch for the recipe you'll be using. Google is great for that info! That's where I researched what I would need to make this pumpkin pie spice blend.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings


 I came upon this super easy recipe many years ago on a cooking site called GroupRecipes. The recipe was posted by one of my favorite cooks on that site named Frankieanne. She helped me to realize how easy it is to make big fluffy dumplings!
