Slow Cooker Beef Stew


I made this beef stew over last Christmas vacation.  It was probably one of only a few things I ate last Christmas that wasn't sugar filled and had some nutritional benefit.


I can hardly believe it is already April.  This year is going to go by fast.  Yesterday I went to Philadelphia.  We went to Eastern State Penitentiary, among other things.

Brussels Sprout Salad with Bacon, Pecans, and Raisins


It's Friday! Fortunately, I don't work today.  I had an alternative work schedule and have every other Friday off.


I think I am going to go see an new exhibit at an art museum and see the movie Ready Player One. I read the book a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it.

Pumpkin Bread with Chocolate Chips


This isn't the type of recipe that one usually makes in the start of spring.  Pumpkin recipes are usually made in fall.


I actually made this recipe in fall, but then I forgot my camera at home over the Christmas holidays.  I just got it back a couple of weeks ago when I saw my parents in Mexico.

Caramelized Brussel Sprouts with Apples and Pecans


I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend.  Brussel sprouts are my favorite vegetable.  I think they are so yummy.


I have made and posted several Brussel spout recipes.  Last May I made honey sriracha roasted Brussels sprouts with bacon.  Over a year ago I made butternut squash, Brussels sprouts, apple, and sausage salad with blue cheese, cranberries, and pecans.

Butter Pecan Cookies


I actually made these cookies last year around Christmas time.  I was going to post about them earlier, but I left my camera at home when I was there for the holidays.  


I went to Mexico last week, and my parents brought me my camera.  There were photos from several recipes, so the next few recipes I post will be old.  I hope I remember all the details of the recipes.

Southwest Salad with Black Beans, Butternut Squash, Corn, and Tomatoes


I just got back from Mexico last last night.  I went to La Paz, which is in Baja California.  My brother and his family is spending several months there, and I went down to visit with my parents.


It was a great trip.  The water was beautiful, it was warm, and I really enjoyed visiting family.

Slow Cooker Chicken Marrakesh


I'm leaving to go to Mexico in a couple of days.  I'm pretty excited.  I have been to Mexico a couple of other times, but it has been over ten years.


I will be meeting my parents and nephew there, and my brother and his family is there already.  They have been there for a couple of months.
