My family was never big on beef, but my in-laws totally are. As a result, over the past several years, I’ve gradually learned how to cook cow, and, with practice, I’ve gotten a bit better. Most of my beef dishes (that aren’t stew or chili, because we know at this point I can make those

Chili is one of those meals that you can make a thousand different ways and always manage to pull off something new. In this case, I got to talking with a friend at a hockey tournament about game chili, and while this recipe is written for game meats, I’m a basic suburban housewife, so I

I needed a little break from the pumpkin mayhem, so this week’s post is still orange, still spicy, but otherwise deviating from the current standard. Anyone who’s had actual Indian food knows that American versions and spinoffs don’t come anywhere near the celebration of flavor and spice that is actual Indian food. Proper Indian cooking

If you’re a fan of toast or PB&J sandwiches and you’ve never had apple butter before, you’re missing out! It’s like super-concentrated, creamy applesauce. It’s sweet, full of spices, and perfect on toast, rolls, or vanilla ice cream. It’s been a favorite spread of mine since I was a kid, and the best way to

If you’re in the mood for something sweet, savory, and spicy, you’re going to love this set-it-and-forget-it jambalaya. The prep involves a lot of chopping and dicing, but if you put on a little music, it goes by in no time. My recommendation? The band Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. It really sets the tone (and

Crock pot meals are some of my favorites because I can throw stuff in the pot in the morning, turn it on, and have dinner ready in the evening whenever I need it. Meals like that are especially nice when either hubby has long meetings that take him until after or I have to leave

I had a giant pork loin hanging out in my freezer and I knew it had been there for a while but I wasn’t sure just how long “a while” had been. While looking for recipe ideas for braising, roasting, marinating, and countless other things I wasn’t super interested in, I remembered that pulled pork

While I’m a little late for St. Paddy’s Day 2019, you can either save this recipe for next year or enjoy discounted corned beef and make it today! I hope you had a happy Get Drunk While Wearing Green Day, and I hope you come back to this recipe for years to come. I know

I adapted this recipe from one of my mom’s favorite Instant Pot recipes, and it turned out pretty well for my first conversion. The beef was so tender and the sauce was one of the best I’ve ever made. It uses a LOT of garlic, but don’t let that dissuade you. The sauce doesn’t just

Somehow, I’ve managed to spend six years of my life with an Idahoan and almost two years living in the potato state without adding a mashed potato recipe to my blog. Don’t get me wrong, it isn’t because I have some vendetta against mashed potatoes — they’re probably my favorite way to eat potatoes —
