One of my favorite parts of large family gatherings when I was growing up was the food. Specifically the orange jello salad. We only had this treat at Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Now as an adult I enjoy it more often. And the whole family loves it! Liz took some convincing, but once she saw me make it she loved it. I mean who doesn’t want a “salad” that is mostly whipped cream!
It is very rare that there is any of this yummy salad left after a large meal. Continue reading
We get a lot of roasts when we buy our meat (we buy it a whole side at a time). Since it is really just Trevor and I who eat roast beef we always end up with too many leftovers. It’s nice to mix it up so yesterday I decided to try something different with one of our roasts. I made the same shredded beef on a bun that I made for William’s Birthday. It’s very simple, and very delicious.
Slow Cooker Shredded Beef
- Beef Roast
- 1 cup Beef Broth
- 1/3 cup Chopped Onion
- 1 bottle Favorite BBQ sauce
- Toppings (tomato, onion, relish, mayo, mustard)
- Place roast into slow cooker
- Top with chopped onions
- Pour beef broth over gently (try not to wash all the onions off)
- Cook on low for 7-10 hours, until it is basically falling apart
- Rip roast apart with 2 forks until completely shredded
You can then place in fridge for the next day or continue with instructions for same day
- Place shredded beef back into slow cooker
- Cover beef with BBQ sauce (I use the complete bottle), give it a good stir to cover completely
- Cook on High for 2 hours (might only need 1 hour or less if it's done on same day)
- Place on bun with your choice of toppings
I LOVE apple crisp. It has to be my favorite dessert. I use to always buy them in store pre-made when they were on sale. That was until we spent a weekend at my grandparents cottage a few years ago. She had made an apple crisp for dessert one night. I was very surprised to find out how easy it was to make, (and also that I had the recipe in a cookbook she made me years ago). I have made it many times since and have to say it is an awesome dessert.

I LOVE cinnamon buns. They are my go-to treat of choice. I’m always so excited when Trevor brings them home from the store as a surprise.
So you can imagine my excitement when I came across a recipe for cinnamon buns in the bread maker. I just had to make these. Luckily I have a bread machine so it takes a lot of the work out of making them from scratch. Don’t they look yummy!
I have been getting a craving for chocolate A LOT lately. But really who doesn’t :). Last night while I was searching my cupboards for chocolate I found a chocolate bunny. Yes somehow it got pushed to the back and forgotten about. After a few bites I decided plain chocolate was not going to satisfy my craving, I needed some crunch too. So I decided to make some crunchy chocolate clusters.
