Accidental Beef Stew

Sometimes the best things out of the kitchen are unplanned. Just made the best beef stew I have ever tasted. It also got an "Ohhh wow, this is amazeballs!" (paraphrased) from the 3 other mouths it fed. And it was an "accident." Oh jeez, start writing down now what I remember doing so I can... Continue Reading →

Football Munchies!

Instant Pot Custard

Few treats fill me with more nostalgia than homemade custard. It was one of those things my mom made a lot and we never tired of finding those small dishes of creamy, cinnamon-topped wonderfulness in the fridge. Some never even made it to the fridge - it's yum warm, too! As I remembered it anyway... Continue Reading →
